Each award brings the club £200 in funding (i.e. £2,400 a year) to be spent on anything apart from running costs – i.e. it can be spent on new equipment, training courses etc… and members are encouraged to make suggestions to Dave about what the money could be spent on.
The first set of nominations recently took place and 11 members were nominated. The committee has agreed that the coaches will pick a winner from these nominations and the first winner has been picked and will be announced shortly. For the future feel free to make nominations when the box is placed by the door (Dave has nomination forms with the register) but only one per month per person please. All winners will receive a certificate and a ‘novelty cheque’ showing what they have won for the club and will be featured on the website and notice board.
Having made our application earlier this year we had our first meeting with Lynsey Mealham, BG’s Regional Development Officer, on 30th March where our basic administration and other systems were reviewed. This meting showed we had a surprisingly high degree of compliance already and so we set ourselves a demanding target of only a few weeks to complete the remaining tasks before meeting again on 3rd May. This meeting was very successful and prompted Lynsey to comment on how quickly we had completed the tasks. Lynsey has now reported to BG who will be reviewing our detail policy documents etc… before we get a formal decision on accreditation. In the meantime we have been required to formalise and/or restate a number of policies and procedures and all members and their parents/guardians ought to familiarise themselves with them since it impacts on how they need to be prepared for training and their behaviour.
These documents are all posted on our main notice board in the corridor and on the website; please do take time to read them, the Code of Conduct and associated Dress Policy in particular is a priority.
