This is to discuss the competition and see how we can improve the experience in the next Competition. Our meeting is planned for the 19th of October at the usual venue.
After 38 Competitions we are still trying to improve ‘ the day ‘ for children and parents.
A new competition check list has been devised and is in the process of being emailed to all coaches for their comments, hopefully this should help organise and assist .
