Thanks to all of the coaches/managers who have sent through their preferred training times.
Nigel and Andy have managed to schedule in most to date as requested and are working through the last few.
If you haven't booked a day/time/park you MUST do this. Please don't just assume you can turn up as we are working to tight timeframes and spaces. To book a slot please email Nigel. He is happy for you to email him at work now, so that he can respond to your requests as soon as possible:
Please remember that the fields we have available at the A&P grounds are only the football pitches, NOT the rugby grounds. It is also extremely important that the last one out ensure ALL of the lights are OFF at the end of the night. This includes all three parks, Maria Andrews, A&P, and Dudley. We cannot afford to pay to light the park overnight!!
As you know the artificial pitch is underway at Kendall Park, and will have new lights. We also hope to move our current lights. However, we are not in control of the timeframes for this, so we ask for patience.
Please click HERE for pitch bookings. Use the tabs with the day of the week to navigate.

At our meeting last week the points of interest were;
Brent Russell has kindly filled a vacancy on the board

The council advised us that they are about to start construction of a new artificial turf, new lights and goal posts at Kendall Park, which should be operational May/June 2014
The council have released a feasibility study into the building of an indoor sports facility in Rangiora. Below is a copy of the recommendations or you can read the whole report on the WDC website via the link below. What does that mean for us? Until the council staff have completed a detailed analysis, not too much aside from the clubhouse re-build is on hold. In the meantime though we are in discussions with the WDC re up-grading the toilet facilities at Maria Andrews Park.
THAT the Community and Recreation Committee:
Receives report No. 140205011156.

Thanks to all those club members who attended the AGM last night.
It was great to see so many people getting actively involved in their club.
On behalf of the club, we thank the outgoing Board members; especially Chairperson Blair Cutting, Simon Clark, Sue Webb, and Greg Coleman. Many of these members have been on the Board since the merger and have done a fantastic job bringing the two clubs together, and helped to create a fantastic club culture of junior development. They have also set the club on a path toward attaining outstanding facilities, with the plans for the new indoor facility submitted, and continuing discussions with the Council regarding the artificial turf.
The new Board consists of the following members:
Ian Fong (Chairperson)
Lance de Klerk
Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury
are looking for more mentors!
Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury matches children ages of 6 through to 18 with mentors in a professionally supported one-to-one relationship.
Our programme matches a volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister with a child who could benefit from a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult. Mentors and the young person they are matched with meet a few times per month, for a couple of hours each time, at places and times convenient to both. The two share similar interests, and they spend their time together engaged in activities such as kicking a ball around, watching movies, visiting the museum, cheering on a local sports team or simply hanging out.
Children who spend time with a mentor gain confidence, acquire new skills and competencies, and develop an enhanced capacity to care for others. Mentors experience a sense of discovery and enjoyment as they see a world of possibilities open up through the child’s eye.
