Now the season has started and we are all finally playing the game we love, I thought I would share with you a sign I saw the other day at another club;
These are kids
This is a game
The coaches are volunteers
The referee's are human
This is not the World Cup
We are exactly the same. Our club is run by volunteers. The council do not put up the posts and nets, mark out fields, organise the teams an so on, volunteers do and for some reason this year we have had an increased number of members assuming we are some sort of fully funded body at your beck and call. While football is the largest participation sport in New Zealand I would say we are probably the most under funded for the number of players in the sport.
So in the words of a famous U.S. president I would say "its not what the club can do for you, its about what can you do for the club"

Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury
are looking for more mentors!
Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury matches children ages of 6 through to 18 with mentors in a professionally supported one-to-one relationship.
Our programme matches a volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister with a child who could benefit from a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult. Mentors and the young person they are matched with meet a few times per month, for a couple of hours each time, at places and times convenient to both. The two share similar interests, and they spend their time together engaged in activities such as kicking a ball around, watching movies, visiting the museum, cheering on a local sports team or simply hanging out.
Children who spend time with a mentor gain confidence, acquire new skills and competencies, and develop an enhanced capacity to care for others. Mentors experience a sense of discovery and enjoyment as they see a world of possibilities open up through the child’s eye.
