TRAINING THIS WEEKEND
Training is on as normal for all age groups this weekend.
SCC DEMPSEY PLAYING FIELDS
Following a few incidents recently, the Academy would just like to remind parents of a few points to bear in mind down at Dempsey Playing Fields.
CHILDREN IN THE CAR PARK
Please could parents keep their children with them when they are in the car park at Dempsey. The car park gets very busy in the morning, and sometimes it can be difficult to see children, especially if they are running through the car park whilst cars are reversing and manoeuvring.
We would also like to ask those driving in the car park to be vigilant, and ensure they keep their speed down.
NO DOGS ALLOWED AT DEMPSEY
The Singapore Cricket Club, who are our landlords, do not allow dogs at SCC Dempsey Playing Fields. Please could we ask all parents to respect this rule and refrain from bringing their dogs to the pitches.
We would just like to remind everyone that we live in the tropics and we share the playing fields with the local flora and fauna. Please be careful in the long grass, and shady areas, as there may be snakes and other creepy crawlies!
KIT UPDATE FOR NEW REGISTRATIONS
For children who are new to the Academy and would like to collect their new playing jerseys, we are afraid that we are out of stock of size 6 black and gold striped jerseys. Size 6 would be for children in the U4 and U5 age groups.
More are on order, and we expect to have them to hand out to any new registrations from Saturday 16th March.
ONLINE STORE UPDATE
All kit (new playing jerseys, shorts, socks, training tops, caps, etc) can be bought from our ONLINE STORE.
Orders placed before Sunday midnight will be available for pick at the club house at Dempsey the following Saturday between 8:00AM to 11:30AM.
Paladin have ordered new stock of playing jerseys. They are hoping these will be available for order from 12th March.
All sizes of shorts are now in stock in our online store.
All sizes are in stock now.
Orders placed before Sunday midnight will be available for pick up the following Saturday at the club house at Dempsey during training.
