UFIT BOOTCAMPS AT DEMPSEY – SATURDAY 23rd AND SATURDAY 30th SEPTEMBER
Don’t forget that the first free UFIT bootcamp will be held at Dempsey this weekend.
There is no excuse now not to do some exercise while the kids are training! UFIT have kindly offered to organise free bootcamps for parents at training on Saturday 23rd September and Saturday 30th September.
The first UFIT Bootcamp will be held this Saturday 23rd September from 8:10AM for approximately one hour. The following weekend the session will be at 9:30AM, to allow those who come down later to attend.
The bootcamps will be held on the mini pitch just next to the clubhouse (where the older age groups hold their warm up sessions).
SAXO MARKETS BLACK AND GOLD STRIPED PLAYING JERSEYS
By now most of the children have picked up their SAXO MARKETS black and gold striped playing jerseys. These are the playing jerseys that we started handing out in May last term. If you have not collected the jersey for your child, please drop a note to Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not have a jersey for your child to collect unless you notify us beforehand.
KL SARACENS TOURNAMENT 2018 – CANCELLED
Sadly, we have had notice this week from KL Saracens Rugby club that their annual tournament in KL, and our main rugby tour, won’t be happening early next year. They have cited “the current business climate, the Club’s funding and the lack of sponsors” as the major factors behind the decision. We are sorry if you have made arrangements or kept the dates free but we are sharing this information as soon as we have received it. We are now busy looking at alternatives and will share this with you as soon as possible.
TRAINING FEES DUE FOR 3RD TERM 2017
Thank you to all those parents who have already paid for this term training fees.
For those who have not paid, please note that the deadline for payment is this Friday 22nd September 2017. Any fees unpaid after midnight on Friday will incur a 10% charge.

You need to select your child’s profile, which is shown under “My Team” and their squad on the home page. Once you have entered your child’s profile, you can then select the Payments tab, to find this term’s Training Fees.
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. Please note that the PayPal link can only be found in the web version of TeamSnap, and does not show on the app version.
