"Way Forward" meeting - 6th May: Agenda

To make sure we cover everything I am drafting an agenda for next Sunday (see below). This is obviously not set in concrete yet - if you want to add or amend anything please say!!

1. Management of the Girls' Section

Currently, officially, this section is organised as if it were just another age group within the club - so the only "official" post holders are the coaches and managers. However the administrative burden for this section is far higher than for any boys age group team.

The result is that the section is too dependent on one person. In addition although several people have volunteered to help their lack of "official" status means that at times it can be unclear who does what. Dividing up the work along a number of "official" positions - and making it less dependent on one or two individuals - will make the section stronger.

The posts listed on the right (except for the coach posts) currently show those people who have voluteered to take on those particular roles next season. However, these are not set and the posts and the post holders should be discussed and agreed upon at the meeting.

2. Coaching arrangements 2007/8

Discuss the options currently available to us for next season

3. Fixtures and competitions

Ideally who do we want to play, and which competitions do we want to enter - in particular we need to discuss the National Cup.

4. Co-operation with other clubs

Player numbers - especially in the U15s - point to the need to develop links of some sort with other clubs. Do we want to want to enter into such arrangements, and if so with whom?

5. Tour 2008

The sooner we make decisions on this the better - first do we have a tour, second where do we want to go, third when?

6. Player numbers

What can we - realistically - do to recruit new players?

  1. Hi there - my daughter Sarah plays for Taunton U17's (next year U18's) in Somerset - we have both U14s and U17s. Our neighbouring clubs Ivel Barbarians (in Yeovil) and Bridgwater have U17s and Burnham on Sea and Yatton have U14s. Obviously I'm writing this message without checking with each of the coaches but you might like to think about coming over here. Our girls have just got back tonight from their tour of Cornwall/Devon playing Newquay and Tavistock over this past weekend. If a tour in our area would be of any interest to you next year please email me on and I'll have a word around to see if we could help set something up for you - cheers, Anne Bebbington
