January 2016 Newsletter

Welcome to a new month with the ARS EDP. Please take note of the following:

SCHOOL GRADING

Schools shall be graded commencing January 2016. Reports shall be submitted to each school at the end of each month.

PLAYER GRADING

Players of each school shall be graded commencing January 2016. Reports of each player shall be submitted to parents and schools at the end of each month.

TRAINING KIT

All training kit shall be stored on site at each school commencing January 2016. Strong boxes shall be supplied for this purpose by the ARS EDP sponsors MyFamily Mobile. Keys for the strong box shall be held by the school coach and the ARS EDP head coach.

TRAINING TIMETABLE

Please see mailboxes for the training timetable for 2nd term. Each school is entitled to no more than 1hour/1 day per week training from ARS EDP coaches. This is to ensure a level playing field during the league matches. Schools are at liberty to continue training in the absence of ARS EDP coaching.

SPONSOR

Our sponsors’, MyFamily Mobile, have brought it to our attention that there is little to no mention in school literature, such as newsletters or website of their contribution to the school in the way of their sponsorship. We hope this can be addressed shortly as their support and contribution is and has been invaluable.
