Gloucestershire Netball is holding an Into Officiating Award course in Gloucester on Saturday 10th December.
This course is the first step on the pathway to becoming a qualified Into Officiating Award-level umpire (i.e. to umpire in divisions 4-5 of the County League). It replaces the old Beginner Award course.
If you or an umpire you know is interested in taking the first step on the umpiring ladder then it is highly recommended that you/they attend this course, which is now an essential start to the umpiring award pathway.
Christmas is always seen as a special time of year, but this is not the case for everyone. The expense and expectation can place a real strain on any family, but particularly those living in poverty, or facing homelessness or family breakdown. There are also many lonely and vulnerable young people and adults who simply have nobody to be with at this time of year.
Gloucestershire Netball is proud to support Hamper Scamer, CCP’s Christmas Giving Scheme, designed to spread a little cheer to some of the most disadvantaged children, young people, families and vulnerable adults at Christmas.
This year, we are asking you to donate family hampers (or smaller hampers if you cannot supply all the items) containing the following items.
CCP can offer an incentive of a match and two training balls to the club that collects the most food!
Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm (WORKING LUNCH)
