Dear Parents/Caregivers,

St Columba Anglican School (SCAS) will be conducting a Holiday Football Skill Development Program in the upcoming
holidays. The program is designed for players of all abilities who wish to improve and learn new skills.
Details are as follows:

Dates: Monday 9th July 2018 – Thursday 12th July 2018Time: 9:00am – 12.00pm
Venue: SCAS Front Oval
Students: Years 1-6
Cost: $80.00
+ $30.00 (one-off payment for SCAS Football training shirt*) – refer & complete option within the Parent Lounge.
*A SCAS Football training shirt is compulsory.
** Students who already have a SCAS Football training shirt do not need to purchase another shirt.

Players and their parents are to meet at the SCAS Front Oval on Monday 9th July (8.45am) for a brief overview of the program and an explanation of the expectations of each participant. You are welcome to stay and watch (from a designated area) or leave your child under our supervision. The program session will finish each day at 12.00pm, players will not be allowed to go to the car park to be picked up, rather will need to be collected from Kiss and Drop area next to the Iona Sports Stadium. Other exceptions can be made with prior written permission and discussion with me. Players will have access to a water station during the 2 short breaks provided each day. At 11.45am on Thursday 12th July, the camp will conclude with a demonstration/presentation for parents/caregivers.

The program will go ahead regardless of the weather as we are fortunate to have access to the Iona Sports Stadium.

Information regarding this activity has been added to your Parent Lounge. Please accept or decline your child’s attendance no later than Thursday 28th June 2018. It is important that attendance is confirmed via the Parent Lounge, as your child will risk being withdrawn if permission is not sufficiently completed.
