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.
