We say thank you a lot but we have a lot to be thankful for. The attitude of our players, commitment of our coaches, support of our parents and volunteers. In the past couple of years we have achieved a great deal through hard work and a positive approach to our development. We have continued to grow and improve our organisation, offering more development and progression than ever before and are committed to continuing this in the future.
We continue to increase our team both on and off the field and have seen our players push themselves to the highest possible level. We’ve seen a number of new players start their journey in the Sport and these will take part in a number of events over the remainder of the season to test their skills and challenge their development. As we have set out since the start of our organisation this will all be done with the focus and emphasis on learning and development, building knowledge of the sport and most of all having fun. We are also working hard to continue to improve the facilities we can provide in order to support our club and to provide the best possible platform to engage both our players and the local community.
We are proud to recruit players from a wide area in our region, the fact that some players and parents travel a considerable distance demonstrates that we are providing an activity and club that people want to and enjoy being a part of. As a result of our hard work we are honoured to have been nominated as Junior Club Of The Year in the Medway Sports Awards. These bi-annual awards look to celebrate and reward achievements of Clubs, Individuals, Schools and Teacher’s within the Medway area. Following the nomination process we have been Shortlisted for the award and will be attending the awards evening in December where the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be presented by Double Winter Olympic Medallist Lizzy Yarnold.
We are hugely proud of our club and humbled by this nomination, it simply could not be possible without the support and hard work put in by everyone. We wish luck to all those who have been shortlisted as well and congratulate all the fantastic organisations nominated or not, each and every club at its heart is trying to engage young people and encourage participation in a positive activity.
