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 13th September 2013 with your sport fees.
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 programme 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. A full copy of the Fair Play agreement can be found on the Russell Street School website.
Trials We will be holding trials where necessary to allocate positions in graded teams.
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 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 summer hockey as referee are provided). Coaches are not required to pay sports fees for their child.
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.
We would like to thank you for your support to coach, manage, transport and cheer on the sideline for all our children. Without your support summer sport would not be possible. Please contact us anytime for any queries or concerns. We hope for a great season.
From The Sports Team, Moana and Ebony.
