Here is what parents are saying:

I would like to congratulate you on your professionalism with running your club. It is refreshing to see everything well organised and conveyed to the members. as an organised person myself, I like to know dates, times fixtures, prices etc. in advance, so I know what we are aiming for. You have provided that very proficiently- thank you.


I feel you are progressing with your club in the right direction and I wish you well with this. I will try not to disappear into my coat or under the chair if I watch them fight..but I can't promise... Kand S will always be my babies and my instinct is always to protect them to hilt. .....I'm sure you understand!

with best wishes for the future of your club and kind regards to you.
