Reports from committee
Welcome to all
Thank to Paul for sorting out the juniors driving them to competitions
Thanks to Kirst photographs.
Kevin for looking after the cash and lovely new wheels on the kit box
Competitions – similar form to last year – semis was what we expected. Semis are cancelled who knows what will happen this year.
Steph thanks for organising teams
Great Lido – 2 teams from Guidford – one came last.
Well done to Emily and Abi for representing GB in the summer. World age group champioinships
Prawle – plenty of bacon. thanks to Mat for sorting it out again. Date set mid July but not sure if it is booked. Crowd funding to keep the pigs nose open was apparently successful.
Plenty of curries held.
Still looking at alternative pools – one in Camberley due to open next year but may not be suitable.
We are still solvent as at the end of last year. Improved from last year due to due to good junior attendance. junior income up by £800, adults up by nearly £2k. Good attendance at dive pit compared to last year. Pool fees have gone up as well sadly £10.5 to £12k!
Lido fees were less.
Bank balance is improved by £300.
We are expecting another increase in pool costs next year.
Glow puck is still missing
Car stickers from Jon - £1 each. There are also GUWH key rings available.
BBpush booked for 20th June. TBC - unlikely
Prawle 11th July weekend. TBC
We were using the website and facebook to publish the timetable, results and guidance on equipment. Membership renewals and registering members for 2019-2020 ran smoothly this year.
We have the following membership
Standard 18 (was 15)
Student 10 (was 8)
Junior 19 (was 17)
Non playing members 2 (was 0)
Total 49 (was 45) 2 additional playing members
More than last year but 1/3 juniors. Adult numbers have improved slightly despite two dropping to non-playing. Some are not regular. The club needs adults to run in the longer term.
No Associate Members from other clubs.
We continue with termly fee for juniors and have a few PAYG where they cannot attend regularly. There have been problems when secretary is on leave working out who has paid – Thanks to Jane Twitchen for helping with the rota this year. We owe a refund for the last session before lock down which will be available for the Autumn term if it runs ok
New bag of hats
Refurbished basket, we have enough kit. We have more pucks from the last tournament.
John has had a watching brief cleaning up kit every few months. We have enough fins – it is noted that juniors don’t often have their own because growing feet means they don’t fit for long. We do lose the odd sticks and gloves wear out. Glove making session proposed. Kevin has a lot of latex ready for the next one.
We have 5 mouthguards for sale.
Thanks to Jen, steph Ed & Mark for helping run the junior sessions and coaching.
Many teanagers have left but the numbers have picked up and lots of good new players.
2 in world age group championships.
Regionals in Newport – only U16’s got to play but U12 and U14 cancelled due to corona virus. CMAS are saying internationals are going to be in 2021 so 3 more of our juniors will be eligible to play – Turkey.
We have a number trying out for the next age championships – 4-5. Paul has been volunteered to help the competitions manager for player tracking applications. David might be able to help.
Player of the year – 28% of votes – Sheena, Rob was a close second
Junior player of the year – Abi 3rd, Sophie 2nd, Izzie 1st.
