As our season draws to a close, we are once again humbled by the generosity of so many people who have volunteered countless hours of their time to help bring you and your children a fun and successful Junior Spring Season! They are mother's, father's, aunties, uncles and friends, who give up time with their own families and loved ones to bring you quality programming and to ensure that all the junior players have the best possible experience year after year. It is thanks to these wonderful people, that our sport and community continues to grow stronger every day! As a small token of gratitude, we would like to invite you to join us of an evening of fun where we can show them how much they mean to us!
