All of the club’s practice groups are back training, as usual, at Rotary Stadium as line painting continues to be delayed. Please check for emails with details regarding your Practice Group’s training location as the club responds to ongoing communication from the City regarding line painting.
UPDATE from Christa regarding the Junior Development Group this week…
The JD group will be back training at Rotary this Thursday, May 27th.
For Saturday, May 29th, the JD group will meet at Rotary by the flag poles but will then be doing the tunnel run for their training session. If you drop your child off on Saturday and come back before the end of the session, please note that they may not be back at Rotary until 10:15am so please don’t worry if you don’t see your child right away. All our coaches will be with them on this run.
Next week there will be the first of three opportunities to get some official throws results.

ELECTION OF BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
There are four positions being voted on for the Valley Royals Board of Directors at the 2021 AGM. Election to the board is for a two-year term. As a Non-Profit Society that seeks to support the development of athletes, coaches and officials, the Valley Royals Board of Directors is a “Working Board” where the club leadership not only advise and contribute ideas but also roll up their sleeves and get work done to help the club function smoothly.
To put your name forward to serve on the board, or for more info, contact Christa at [email protected]
SUB COMMITTEES & SPECIAL SKILLS:
Beyond the seven positions on the board, there are many other opportunities to volunteer that do not require being elected:
- Join a club sub-committee such as the Track Meet Committee, Finance Committee, or Grand Prix Committee
- Contribute your special skills such as: handy person, first aid, communications (website/social media), bookkeeping, or other skills that would help the club
- Running a fundraiser or Networking to get the club a corporate sponsor automatically fulfils all the volunteer hours your family needs for the year
If you would like to get involved on a sub-committee, if you have a special skill to contribute, or if you have a fundraiser or corporate sponsor for the club in 2021, email the club administrator, Christa, at [email protected]
- Do you appreciate the club’s coaches and care about the development of all the Valley Royals athletes?
