Summer League 2012 - 2013
Kia ora everyone,
This email is to give you a heads up of where Summerleague is at for the 2012 – 2013 Season.
We are in the process of confirming fields, making the draw, looking for a new Summerleague commissioner or commissioners, and getting team entries.
Every team will be required to do duty week, on rotation, this season. Duty week involves setting up on the day, packing up on the day, keeping a track of players playing + goal scorers, refereeing if needs be.
This is not optional, if your team is not keen to play its part and do duty week on a rotational basis, then your team won’t be included. Split it up on the day how you like, make it work!
Summerleague Commissioner (SLC)
Summerleague needs someone to run it with the support of teams on duty week assisting with the toughest part – being around on the game days! So really, it’s a walk in the park. This is an enjoyable position and could ideally suit a couple of people splitting it up.
The primary role of SLC is to see games go ahead, the draw is taken care of week by week, liaise with referees if we have them, liaise with IBUAFC committee, liaise with Rongotai College re grounds, make executive decisions on matters that arise and a few others bits. Peter Lye and myself will be available to ask questions and I can conduct a handover / transfer of requirements.
The tough thing about being the commissioner, although at times it is cool to do, is hang around the pitch every Saturday. That’s why we are introducing duty teams to make it more flexible and enjoyable.
A couple of fuel vouchers and supermarket vouchers will be thrown in to tautoko your efforts.
Do you know anyone who would be interested? Let’s cast the net!!
….. to Joe Murphy who has taken over looking after the website after 7 years’ worth of sterling service by Michael Wray!
All volunteers welcome, ideally suit younger people looking for references and experience to add to the CV!!
your team keen on entering in 2012? If so, please confirm with me soon, competition starts end of October. You may need to change team contacts, that’s fine, you are who I have at the moment.
At this stage I have confirmation from Barca Bay (yes, I confirmed to myself), the South Coast Kinas and we welcome the lads from the IBUAFC 4th team who will take over the Shortjawed Kokopu Collective’s Spot.
- Gary Oosterbaan and I have been working through costs and cost recovery in the last 24 hours and at this stage the fee for 2012 has increased to $750 which reflects increases in field hire and other expenses. This equates to about $54 per person for the season in a 14 man / lad / lassie / person team! Note this is not final and may be adjusted up or down slightly.
- IBUAFC will be absorbing the competition a bit more into its stable, however the competition still stands as a separate entity of sorts!
- Referee’s, Helen, would there be an interest from the refereeing community again to come and enjoy some games?
Have a great weekend, I look forward to hearing from you soon!
