NOMINATIONS FOR COACHES AND MANAGERS
COACHES AND MANAGERS WANTED
Have you ever thought about coaching or managing a Qld team? Most of our masters players have a wealth of experience which we would like to tap for our Qld Masters Teams.
COACHES: Ideally a non playing coach is needed for each Qld team but if you re interested in taking on a coaches role ( either as a playing or non playing) then to register your interest please send an email to: Paul Hardie The Secretary Qld Masterssecretary@qldmensvetshockey.com indicating the age group and Division you would be interested in coaching, any experience you would bring to the role and whether you would be a playing or non playing coach.
MANAGERS: Every team needs a manager who is an integral part of the team whether playing or non playing. There is a lot of help available for new managers but the manager takes on the role of assisting the Capt and Coach manage the team by taking responsibility for communication with the team and team welfare. If you are interested please send an email to Paul Hardie The Secretary Qld Masters firstname.lastname@example.org the age group you would like to manage and whether you would be a playing or non playing manager.
Please give this some thought as Qld Masters needs your assistance to help make Qld even more of a force to be reckoned with at the 2013 Aust. Masters Championships.
ACCOMMODATION ARRANGEMENTS FOR QLD TEAMS AT
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS SYDNEY SEPT 2013
The accommodation for ALL Qld Teams travelling to Sydney for the 2013 National Championships will be at "Mereton Serviced Appartments" Parramatta. The website is http://www.meritonapartments.com.au/sydney/parramatta.
Cost will be betwen $75 to $100 per person/ per night depending on the room configuration.
This accommodation is optional as some players will choose to make their own arrangements re accommodation while at the championships.
IMPORTANT POINTS FOR 2013:
* On selection to a Qld team each player will receive a letter explaining their options for accommodation.
* Each player will be required to reply BY THE DUE DATE indicating if they will require accommodation and for how many people.
* This email will be forwarded to IST ( International Sports Tours) who will send an invoice directly to the player concerned.
* All further correspondance will then be between IST and the player concerned and payment will be made directly to IST.
* The due date for payment will be strictly enforced by IST and any invoice not paid by the due date will result in the booking being cancelled.
This is no different to booking accommodation for a family holiday - if you do not pay by the due date, you will forfeit your booking.
Please consider the implications of this carefully before indicating you require accommodation with the Qld teams.
