We're back

Hope that you had a good break... but now its time to come back and start training for the 2006 season. Come on down - even if you haven't played before.

Between the seasons not only did we have a break but so did the website. I'm pleased to announce that a new sponsorship has given the club a new online home.

  • Sunday 26th March 2006: Leederville Oval
    • Women�s & Men�s Finals & Plate matches to be played

GAA Sub Committees 2006

The following email has been received from the GAA WA. Please note the request for participants... contact one of our committee if you wish to help out.


All Club Contacts listed above,

There are a few items to be bought to the attention of all Club members in this email. Can you please ensure ALL people within your Club are given access to this, and all other, information that is emailed to you? As one of only a few people within your Club who receive this information, it is very important that you allow all other members of your club to be aware it. If at any time you have any people to be added or removed from your Club�s contact list, please let me know.

  1. Attached are the minutes for the following GAA of WA Sub Committee meetings held recently
    1. Australasian Games Sub Committee Meeting - held 20th Feb 
    2. GAAWA Games Sub Committee Meeting - held 22nd Feb (next meeting is tomorrow night - Wed 8th March 8pm at the Irish Club upstairs) 
    3. Sponsorship & Recruitment Workshop - held 28th Feb 

    Future minutes for all Sub Committee meetings will be emailed to you as they occur.

  2. Representation of all Clubs on all Sub Committees is required

    Three sub committees have commenced meetings (the Australasian Games, the GAAWA Games & Hurling) and two others are yet to field committee members (Youth & State Teams).

    It is extremely important that all Perth based Clubs have at least one representative on each committee. If someone within your club is interested in actively participating in any of the Sub Committees, please contact either myself or Damian McCague. We are especially interested in getting the Youth Sub Committee running ASAP.

  3. Sponsorship & Recruitment Workshop � Ladies Teams

    Due to the success of the recent workshop run by Brian Briscoe; we are looking to hold another workshop in the next few weeks focussing on the Ladies teams. To do this, Brian requires confirmation that all Clubs will have people attending. The first workshop had minimal Ladies team representatives, with the main focus on Men's team issues. We feel the Ladies teams would greatly benefit from a similar discussion.

    If you have interested persons - new members to your Club are always more than welcome too - please email me ASAP. Date & time will be confirmed soon.



Thank you.

Regards,
Chenoa

State Media Launch of Gaelic football at Tom Bateman Reserve

The Government has approved funding for a dedicated facility for Gaelic Football in WA - Tom Bateman Reserve in Canningvale (corner Roe Highway and Nicholson Rd).

The new facilities once completed will contain 5 change rooms, a canteen, a bar, function rooms and a quality ground for players and spectators.

There is going to be a media event at the ground as a date to be announced. We have been asked to get a couple of people from each team at the ground for the event in team uniform� this could be good exposure for Gaelic and for Greenwood.

Current players, past players and our supporters interested in attending on Thursday morning to throw on a jersey and have a kick in front of the cameras (or just to rub shoulders with the politicians) please let me know at training or just come on down.

Regards

Vaughan

Transfers from Interstate & Overseas

The GAA WA has reminded us that backpackers/travellers and players transferring from another Australian State or overseas will be required to complete a transfer form/registration form prior to ANY game (including pre season competitions).

Irish backpackers/travellers need to know that the Perth competition is a "League", not a "Championship" competition. This should be noted on Intercounty Tranfer Forms upon return back to Ireland.

The GAA WA has a registrar who is more than happy to help people through the registration process. Ask any of the GGFC Comittee members if you need help in this area.

In addition to the GAA WA form transfer forms are required when changing clubs - See Vaughan for more details

St Patricks Day Games - 26th March 2006

The second day of the St Patrick's day carnival was a successful one for Greenwood.

After joking that she would probably tear a hammy Jane blitzed the field to win the Ladies 100m race (although 100m appears to have shrunk in recent years).

The Mens 100m was slightly longer than the Womens, but still shy of the true distance. Greenwood filled second and third - Congratulations to Vaughan and Steven for their efforts here.

In the Ladies final the Women showed that they will continue be a force to reckon with this year. The final scoreline was 7-11 (32) to 0-2 (2). Well done ladies.

Farewell John Collins

It is with regret that we announce that John Collins is returning to London to pursue his career as a sports journalist. John brought energy, experience and a fresh approach into the coaching of the Men's team and he has earned great respect and friendship in the process.

In addition to coaching Greenwood, John trained the Men's State Team and will be coaching the State Minor team throughout the Australasian Championships. His departure is a loss not only to Greenwood but to the entire GAA community in Perth.

We wish you all the best John.

This has been written early Monday morning before sobriety has crept in, so please email Vaughan if I've missed anyone.

GAA Review Workshops

The GAA has scheduled a Review Workshop for each Code (Seniors, Ladies, Minors & Masters Football plus Hurling); further details and dates below, in November. Each workshop runs from 7.30-9.30pm and we expect each Club to have the appropriate representatives present.

The GAA WA Secretary wishes to know attendance by 5.00pm Friday 10th November 2006. Either contact Vaughan or Chenoa if you plan on attending.


GAMES REVIEWS
  • All club leaders and players to attend these meetings,
  • A power point review of each code will be sent out in advance.
  • The GAA�s vision is that members will come with ideas and suggestions to improve the respective competitions and codes.
  • In some cases we may need to conduct a second planning/strategy session early in January, before the AGM.
  • Those attending must be financial members to participate, and
  • Plans put into place must be a progression on prior year/s. However they also need to be specific, measurable and achievable.
