Registration Day took place on Saturday, February 11. A hugely successful day saw the launch of the new SubsApp, which all team admins will use this season. This addition will allow members to pay by card or cash at the pitch when training, and a receipt will be issued by email.
We are currently running a discount system, for players who wish to pay their full years subs by May 1, which will result in the players getting 10 training sessions free. This is an option available to all members, but If preferred by players, team admins will continue to take the weekly sub from members who do not wish to pay the full amount up front.
As our club house now has a bar licence it is encouraged for our adults to avail of our social membership for €20 euro, which will allow use of the facility during club events. Please note, the function room can also be hired for private events. We look forward to getting training started and preparing for the 2017 season ahead. We welcome all our new members and welcome back all our players. Agb Abú.
