Ladies football 2010

Hi all,

Well its that time of year again. Its time for the whistle. I know you guys have been missing it. We’ve had our fun with the 7’s tournament and now its time to get down to some serious training and hard work. The training schedule is outlined below:

Tuesday April 6th – April 27th – Strathcona Oval – 6:30-8:30 pm

Monday May 3rd – June 21st – Andy Livingstone – 6:00-7:00 pm

Sat 5 June – annual Seattle tournament (hurlers and ladies football only)

Sat/Sun 26th/27th June – Vancouver Tournament

Sat/Sun 31 July/1 August – Red Deer Tournament (Monday 2 August is a stat holiday)

August (weekend to be determined) – annual Burlington tournament (hurlers and ladies football only)

Tuesday July 6th – August 31st – Strathcona Oval – 6:30-7:30 pm

Essentially training switches between Strathcona and Andy Livingstone on Tuesdays and Monday nights respectively. The reason for this is that we wanted to provide you with the best quality pitches available and not be stuck with somewhere like McSpadden. As always please arrive in plenty of time.

We are also looking at trying something new this year on Friday nights. We have booked Mercer Stadium astro-turf pitch in New Westminister (25 mins by Skytrain) from 7-8pm for 10 weeks starting April 9th. What we would like to do, depending on numbers and committment levels, is to split everyone into 3 teams and run of a mini league using this facility. The idea being that two teams play on a particular Friday while each team gets every 3rd friday off. However as I said, this all depends on numbers and committment. Registration for this mini-league will take place at training next tuesday the 6th in Strathcona and the cost is included in your club membership. If you cannot make training next tuesday but are iterested in playing on the friday nights please send me a text 778 997 9076.

This is a great oppurtunity to expand and develop ladies football here in the lower mainland. To do so we need everyone’s help.

Look forward to seeing you on the field.
