Southern Suns Touch will proudly be represented at the NSW Junior Regional Championships to be held on Saturday April 28 and Sunday April 29, 2018 at The Kingsway Playing Fields, St Marys NSW (Home of Penrith Touch Association).
Our teams will be staying together at Ingenia Holidays Nepean River, 91-95 Mackellar St, Emu Plains from Friday 27 April to Saturday 28 April. It would be appreciated if do not contact the accommodation directly as all bookings are made as a Suns group. All players will be under the supervision of Team and Tour Management. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be supplied. The weekend is a great bonding experience for our Region’s young players and, for many, their first taste of elite Touch Football.
Playing gear & ordered apparel will be given to player on Friday afternoon. If there is any issue with clothing, please take it to your Team Management immediately. Players who have represented Suns previously & are bringing their own playing gear are reminded that we do not have spares, SO DON’T FORGET.
Players should arrive at the accommodation no later than 4:00pm and no earlier than 2:30pm on Friday 27 April. Your Team Management will let you know when they will be at the accommodation to begin supervision. Please do not arrive before your Team Management and let them know when you have arrived.
Each Team will need some assistance with transport to & from Dinner on both Friday and Saturday night as well as, to & from the playing fields on Saturday & Sunday. Can you please let your Team Management know if you are available. Your assistance is greatly appreciated in this area as your help means no bus hire is required & fees are minimised.
If you are bringing additional socks for playing, they must be black. If players wear a cap to play, it must be a Suns cap.
Parents are reminded that the Championships can be quite a hectic weekend of Touch. It is important that your team management knows where players are at all times & that players are fully informed of warm-up & playing requirements for the next game. If you do need to take your son/daughter somewhere (merchandise tent etc) it is important that your Coach/Manager knows what’s going on.
Over the weekend Suns Officials will take some player & team photos for our Facebook page. If you have any privacy concerns with this, please message us & we’ll ensure your wishes are respected.
Parents can collect bags early Sunday morning from the fields and players will able to leave with parents after their playing commitments are complete on Sunday. Please advise your Team Management before you leave.
Good luck to all teams and supporters. Have a great weekend.
