U11 Red Team Cancer Support Shave Off, Friday 11th

This Friday, 11th May, the Under 11 Red team are doing a sponsored head shave at the clubhouse between 5.30-6.30pm, before braving the cold with newly shaved heads for training. The team are shaving their heads to show their love and support to their coach, Scott West, and his family Liam & Caleb, whose wife Clodie is currently fighting breast cancer.

The team is raising money for the Cancer Council, who have helped supply various brochures raising awareness for prevention and support. The Cancer Council is the only Australian charity to work across every area of every cancer. They help from the point of diagnosis through to treatment and survival.

Due to her current treatment, Clodie might not be able to attend the clubhouse in person, but we will live streaming the shaving straight to her at home, and taking lots of photos. We are aiming for the night to be an upbeat night, as we show Clodie, and indeed all cancer battlers, that we are on their side and support them wholeheartedly.

To start Mothers Day weekend off in style, the club will have a special on Bubbles, including Pink Bubbles (sparkling wine). So help us raise some money for a worthy cause, and raise a glass to all the fighters of cancer in all its forms.

Safety and clubhouse news

All Parents Please do not “drop and go” your children, you must be present during training. We also request that parents stay off the fields during Friday night training (except Cubs & U6). Please take advantage of the canteen, listen to the live music, and relax while your child is exercised and tired out ready for bed time!

Training equipment We have recently noticed pieces of training equipment such as tackle pads being abused by various children while not being actively used. Some of these items cost several hundred dollars and are all funded out of club subscriptions.

  • If you take equipment from the shed it is YOUR responsibility to ensure it is used correctly and kept safe
  • If you take equipment from the shed it is YOUR responsibility to put it back neatly
  • NO children are permitted in the shed unless with an adult
  • Children are NOT permitted to play with the equipment

No alcohol on the fields Please be aware that Kenmore Bears alcohol licence does not allow alcohol to be taken outside of the Clubhouse precinct. Do not take alcohol on the fields, or in the playground areas.
