A quick word to all the junior parents out there. Some of you may have met me but for those that haven’t, I am Sam, the designer of this website. I am also a doctor involved in staffing some of the local drive-through COVID clinics which seem to be quite busy at the moment. Crazy times out there.
First and foremost I want to thank you all for supporting us through season COVID. The governing body has been a little lacklustre in their communication, so getting the junior season up and running so quickly is a credit to Craig and co. I would like you all to know that we are taking this COVID outbreak very seriously and your kids will continue to enjoy a safe and fun soccer club despite the new risks involved.
You may be aware that we are running the club at a small loss this year in order to get teams on the field and I have spent a bit of time issuing and assigning credits. Many of you now have outstanding unused credit which can be redeemed using your original coupon code. I invite all of you to use this credit on some of our great new merchandise or roll it over to next season. However, if you would like to use it, please ask me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Craig for your coupon code prior to making a purchase. The website might look pretty out the front, but from back here it is a rookie mess of my own making. Back-dating partial discounts on completed orders… I’m already having nightmares thinking about it.
For those of you that can afford it, the coupons will expire automatically at the end of next season, and remember that donations are tax deductible. I would be happy to send anyone a tax receipt.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or suggestions regarding the website, especially if you have expertise in the area. Once again, I thank you all for your support and look forward to seeing the eaglets take to the field.
Please remember, if your child develops any flu-like symptoms at all, get them tested and keep them home until they have fully recovered.
