IMPORTANT – MICROSPORIDIA HEALTH ADVISORY

There have been reports of a number of Microsporidia eye infections amongst rugby players recently. In light of this, SRU Medical have released the Health advisory  at the link below:

Microsporidia Health Advisory

It is good practise when conditions are muddy:

  • That players always wash their faces immediately after training/matches
  • Do not share towels
  • See a doctor/specialist if they suspect their eyes might be affected.

BBQ AT DEMPSEY – SATURDAY 10TH AND SUNDAY 11TH FEBRUARY

BBQ Dempsey EDM

PARKING AT DEMPSEY

Please can we remind parent to avoid parking at the car park at Dempsey, especially during the early morning sessions. In particular, please avoid parking on the hill coming into Dempsey, as this leaves space for only one car to pass and causes bottlenecks both coming in and out of Dempsey.

More parking can be found behind Ben and Jerrys at Dempsey Hill.

TRAINING FEES – FINAL REMINDER BEFORE THE LATE PAYMENT FEE IS APPLIED (FRIDAY 9th FEBRUARY)

Training fees for Term 1 are now due. To check how much you owe for your child, please go to their TeamSnap profile and select the Payments tab – fees due for this term are indicated there.

Please note that on your TeamSnap “home page”, it will show that you have no fees due for “Registration” – you paid this when your child first joined the Academy. You need to select your child’s team, and then the Payments tab, to find this term’s Training Fees.

LATE PAYMENT CHARGES

Please note that we have introduced a late payment charge. A 10% charge will be added to all unpaid fees after the 4th week of term – for this term, the late fee will come into effect on Friday 9th February 2018.

We now accept PayPal through the TeamSnap application. Just go to the Payments tab on your child’s profile, and you will find the fee amount due and a link for PayPal if you would like to use this service.
