Mick Smartt, our hugely respected and much loved junior squad coach has officially announced his retirement. Mick’s contribution to our Club and the impact he has had on hundreds of children and young people over many years is truly significant and one he should be rightly proud of. We will of course be marking this contribution formally but I’m sure you would want to join us at this point in wishing Mick all the very best for long and happy retirement.
To ensure continuity, we have now re-arranged our coaching timetable and increased the hours of our existing coaches in line with the Club’s coaching development plans. These plans are designed to ensure that we have the capacity “grow our own” coaches from within our membership and ensure that the quality of our coaching is maintained. Further information on these changes will follow.
We are pleased that Mick will continue to be a part of our Club supporting events and helping out occasionally where he can. We will certainly make the most of his wisdom. Thanks again Mick.
