Contact Us

With over 300 members & 40 teams, it is hard for us to know every single person & even harder for us to know any little problems you may face.  We have set up a network of people to assist you with all your concerns.  Whether you feel your child is not getting fair playing time, issues with their team mates, an incident during a game or simply need a new uniform.  We have a great committee of volunteers happy to help, listen & guide you thru the process or escalate your issues & concerns.  Please keep in mind we are also busy people & may not be able to assist until after regular working hours.

The first point where possible should be your coach.  Our coaches give up their time to help & have the best intentions at heart, have a chat to them about any issues that concern you & if they are unable to help you they may be able to direct you to the right person.
