Booking System for 2022
Like last year, for the 2022 season we will be using a booking system which all member (juniors & seniors) are required to use to sign up to a training or coaching session.
This is because it is really important that we know exactly who is coming in and out of the ground for track and trace purposes as well as helping me to plan safe and secure sessions in a COVID compliant manner.
Both junior and senior members can use the link to book a session.
