The TFC committee invites all Club members to attend a meeting to discuss the current state of the club
WHEN: Saturday 3rd of November at 10am
WHERE: Taroona Community Hall, Nubeena Cres Taroona (map below)
Club achievements in recent years include:
- our strong women's football program
- our Skills Training programs and
- continued progress towards our facilities redevelopment.
However, the number of active volunteers who contribute to running the club has not grown at a rate that can adequately support our teams, players and youth development programmes.
In season 2018, TFC entered 17 teams in youth, senior and social competitions with a total of 267 registered players. Many tasks occur throughout the season to ensure these teams can take the field each weekend, such as organising coaches/managers, purchasing strips and equipment, coordinating grounds for training and registering players to ensure they are insured before taking the field. Although there are many individuals within the club who volunteer their time to game day, the administrative aspect of running TFC largely falls to a core group of 6 committee members, a number of whom juggle multiple roles.
WE NEED YOU TO GET INVOLVED!
The workload for the current committee members is unsustainable and it is proving difficult adequately support a club this size. To ensure our club can maintain the success of recent seasons, the committee has identified a number of roles that dedicated individuals or groups could be responsible for:
Sponsorship - requires a dedicated individual or small group to lead club wide sponsorship activities. This involves actively seeking new sponsors and managing existing sponsor relationships.
Ground Hire - coordination and booking of training venues. This could be split between senior and youth teams to share the workload.
Equipment Coordinator - maintain an inventory of equipment and ensure coaches/managers have adequate training equipment. As above, this could be split between senior and youth. It could also extend to ordering team playing strips.
Registrar - a role that is busy at the start of the season but has less responsibility once a season is underway.
Secretary - coordinate monthly committee meetings, take meeting minutes and disseminate key information from FFT.
Treasurer - processing invoices and keeping an accurate record of club finances. This role has been made significantly less time consuming due to recent improvements in the clubs financial software.
If you don't feel that you are able to take on a specific role but do want to contribute there are still many ways that you can help, such as organising a fundraising or a social event, managing First Aid requirements, managing a youth team or assisting in sessions for our youth development programs.
We would like to see as many club members at this meeting as possible and encourage those who attend to actively participate, whether it be to find out how you can contribute or to express your views on the direction of TFC.
If you are unable to attend this meeting but would like to discuss any aspects of this email, please feel free to contact our President, Jordan Wright via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0400 035 963.
