How to get involved

When a sports season is upcoming we will advertise for expressions of interest through the following channels: 
school newsletter
website sports page
daily notices
school sign
 
Parents will need to fill in an expression of interest form (this link will be found in the newsletter and on the website). When expressions of interest have closed off we will assess numbers and hold a trial if required.  Teams will be formed when we have confirmation of numbers and a parent volunteer for the coach and manager. Once all these factors are in place you will be emailed advising that your child is in a team and requesting payment and registration through kindo.
