do s and don ts
Do’s and Don’ts
  • Respect the facilities, they are excellent and we have an very good relationship with the RU club. We would like to keep it that way. Use the bins that are located around the grounds and don’t leave rubbish on pitch.
  • Respond to e mails sent – it helps the sender of the mail to plan.
  • Be prompt
  • Don’t swear on the sidelines – it is not a good example to set to the players. Encourage not berate the players.
  • Help Elaine out where you can. She puts herself out for us way beyond the call of duty.
  • If you have a question ask the coach. If he/she can’t answer then we will.
  • You are part of a growing club, we never stand still.
  • If you know of any potential sponsors please let us know. If you know of any security requirements within companies, please refer them to as we can earn commission.
  • Spread the word to other players and parents. Word of mouth is the best PR for the club.
  • Enjoy the sport and the summer. You never know you may get a sun tan!!
  • Thanks for listening
