Dear Parents and Players
Welcome to the 2017 Season. Plans are underway for what is sure to be another great year. Some Important information relating to this season is detailed below.
A Try Rugby event for new participants looking to learn about Rugby will be held on February 24th from 5:30 pm at Tantallon Oval. Please spread the word to anyone who may be interested in registering a child to play rugby. Sausage Sizzle and Refreshments will be served.
A pre-season Skills Camp run by Gordon Rugby will run over 4 Fridays starting Feb 10 and is open to all non-rep players in u10′s u13′s. This program is similar to the one run last year by Gordon. There is a new location (Koola Park in Killara ) and a small fee ($50) is payable this year but it is still a great way to get kids skills up ahead of the main season. I am sure plenty of car pooling options will be available to gte kids to/from Killara.
The Gordon Reps selection process has changed and will now take place before the main rugby season commences. Please read more here.
Work has commenced on Stage 1 of the Tantallon Stand Re-Development. We will hopefully have new toilets, BBQ and storage. Please ensure all children are careful when moving through the works area.
Key Up Coming Dates
See below for key dates. Jersey Day is the official start to the season where kids meet their coaches, receive their welcome pack and parents get to know each other. This year Jersey day is Sunday March 19th at the Diddy. Save the Date.
I look forward to seeing our fields full of happy rugby players soon!
TANTALLON OVAL RE-DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
Tantallon is a 1st class oval with 3rd class facilities that are in desperate need of upgrading. LCJRC has been working with Lane Cove Council and the other sporting clubs that use Tantallon Oval to produce a proposal for the re-development of the grandstand and amenities. Together we have drafted design plans and we are now in the process of working with Council to commence DA. Watch this video to learn more!
Our Visions: Upgrade the Amenities and create a new shared Community Facility at Tantallon Oval, including:
- Build a new Facility/Club House and viewing deck on the foundations of the existing change room and grandstand
- New Seating
- Upgrade toilets and increased facilities for women
- Repair change rooms
– New storage and BBQ facilities
– Provide a lift for access to the grandstand facility
A fundraising for the development of a Community Facility and Club House at Tantallon Oval is now underway. Club members can make a tax deductible donation today. Or goal is to raise $250,00.
Help us make the facilities at Tantallon fit for purpose and make this oval 1st class all round. DONATE via our foundation online today by clicking here.
