Welcome to another great season of sport at Russell Street School. We value the place sport has in the development of our young people and go to great lengths to encourage participation during ‘out of school’ time. It’s important to remember that when you are committing to a team, that commitment is for the whole season. We ask that you read the following, fill out the information at the back of this form and return to school as soon as possible or
Before Friday 28th March 2014 with your sport fees.
Coaches and Managers - We have asked for help from parents to Coach or become Team Managers. Training materials are available and support from the Sports Team is always on hand. Experience is not necessary. Coaching and managing is lots of fun and very rewarding so please consider taking on one of these roles.
Coaches will need to take practices and referee games (except Flipperball as a referee is provided). Coaches are not required to pay sports fees for their child.
Trials - We will be holding trials where necessary to allocate positions in graded teams. Our A teams are competitive and at important games the coach may field his/her best players. All other teams are participation focused.
Fair Play Guidelines - Fair Play is about encouraging young people to be good sports people. It’s about teaching them to be the best players they can be while having regard for the feelings and efforts of others. In other words ‘ GIVE IT HEAPS, BUT DON’T GET UGLY’. The Fair Play program helps all those providing and supporting sport for young people to promote a healthy attitude. It aims to make sport safe and fun for everyone.
Uniforms - Sports uniforms will be issued to children of all sports teams via our library catalogue system. It is important that you understand and agree to the following care and borrowing guidelines. Russell Street school sports uniform is to be worn at weekly sports games or when representing the school only. Care labels are followed to ensure the longevity of the garments. More particularly with tracksuits or new uniforms, any loss, significant damage or major discolouration will almost certainly result in the replacement cost and/or dry-cleaning of the uniform being met by the family.
