Welcome to this month’s edition of TigerTalk – a monthly update on behalf of the Committee for all things going on for the Tigers Juniors. This will usually be the stuff occurring behind the scenes and won’t replace other updates via the website or socials. As always, I’d encourage you to reach out if you have any queries – don’t be shy!
Sorry I missed last month’s update. The Committee has been working hard getting things organised and in the blink of an eye we’re already half way through the season.
Final Sports Trainer Course
There’s on last course coming up in early August. If your team doesn’t have a Trainer or First Aider, please consider doing the course (the Club covers the costs). Just let your Manager know, or get in touch with us via email@example.com. Moving forward to next season, every team will require a qualified League First Aider or Sports Trainer to remove burden our existing trainers having to cover multiple games at a time, and given host clubs don’t always have enough trainers to provide coverage.
Hopefully you all got your chance place your orders in the online store for the new Tigers merch during the two times the store was open. We will have a very small amount and limited range of sizes available if you missed out, and want to just pick it up from the canteen. We’ll make announcements when everyone’s orders arrive.
Playing Kit, Training Tees etc.
By now, all players (and permanent team volunteers) should have received their playing kit, drink bottles, and training shirts. If not, please get in touch with your Manager. We have an additional surprise coming for players in the next few weeks.
Men of League – Crazy Sock Round
The Men of League Foundation’s Crazy Sock Round is coming up and coincides with Round 11 (home games) for Juniors. From CRRL “The Canberra Raiders will be supporting the Men of League Foundation fundraising efforts by wearing Crazy Socks during Round 20 of the NRL season when the team plays an away game v Newcastle Knights. This campaign began in 2019 with a sell-out of socks and was aimed at grassroots RLFC’s around Australia from U/6’s to open seniors, men and women. This year thousands of players of all ages all around Australia will be wearing the “crazy socks” to show their support for the Men of League Foundation. The socks cost $12 with $5 from every pair sold supporting the Men of League Foundations Wellbeing Program – which provides physical, emotional and financial assistance to those in the rugby league community in need.“
The Club will be participating and have ordered socks for all of our players (noting limited sizes were available, so some might be a little more snug than your regular socks). You can also pick up other merch to show your support on the menofleague.com website.
Huddy Day 2021
For those not already familiar, you can find out a bit more about the Juniors 2020 Huddy Day here, and more on Facebook here. The 2021 Huddy Day socks have been ordered and once we have a confirmed delivery date, will provide more announcements. This is a great day, raising autism awareness and fundraising for the Ricky Stuart Foundation. More to come!
Coaches/Managers have just received the image proof (sorry, they can’t share it) to approve for their teams before the photographer sends them all for printing, so photos won’t be too far away. We’ll make announcements once we know they’re coming and will get them to team Managers to distribute the orders.
Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any queries or suggestions.
