Annual General Meeting.
Annual General Meeting , Monday October 15th, 2012 , 7:30pm. Upstairs Rye Senior Football Club.
The Rye Junior Football Club Annual General Meeting (AGM) is on Monday October 15th, 2012 , 7:30pm. Upstairs Rye Senior Football Club. The AGM is one of the most important meetings that this football club conducts as we start the processes for our 2013 season.
Now before you go off and perhaps think “oh I don’t want to do this,” just take a moment to think about our footy club and where it sits with your son or daughter. Think about the different things that the club does over the footy season and the effect it has on your son or daughter. Think about ,
- The way the club is run.
- The events that we put on during the year.
- Think about game day functions of the club.
- Think about the way your son or daughter is coached, guided and mentored.
The Rye Junior Football Club is a purely voluntary organization run by some dedicated people who want to see good outcomes in all age groups and, your son or daughter. To do this we need representatives across all age groups to come onto our committee and assist with the running of the club through well informed decisions..
We do not want the same dedicated people making the decisions although they have done brilliantly in the past. This club is not about the Under 13’s going back to back and starting their 2013 campaign .
This club is about giving all age groups from the new Under 10’s through to the Under 16’s a wonderful outlet that Australian rules football is. Our football club teaches our kids to become good people through the emphasis of sportsmanship and fair play. This football club teaches our kids how to balance the various activities and to prioritize time amongst their various activities. This club teaches our kids their responsibilities not only to get to training but to play their part in a team.
We need the Mums and Dads to help us get these outcomes.
A common fallacy regarding committee is the thought of slaving away Sunday after Sunday setting up the clubs facilities for the days games. The sad part of it is because of the lack of parents helping means the same people do it week after week and it is not fair on them. Consider the following numbers.
- A junior football side has some 20 – 22 players and in some cases more.
- There are 16 rounds in a season.
- If everyone contributed to one game, just one game a season, it would help our club enormously.
So please, in particular, the new Under 10’s Mum and Dads, come along to our AGM and join the committee and help steer our club into the future. We have a terrific atmosphere and with the success of our Under 11’s and 12’s making the finals, the Under 14's finishing outside the 4 on percentage and of course the Under 13’s, we have a wonderful opportunity to go forward in leaps and bounds.
