Welcome to Dundas United Recreation Club!

Thank you for 2016!

 
The 2016 netball and soccer season are fast becoming a distant memory, scarily so as we approach the Annual General Meeting next month. Before we move on to 2017, I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you.
     Thank you to the players for playing each week in the spirit of the game.
     Thank you to the parents for supporting our players.
     Thank you to the coaches and managers for their time and efforts week in and week out. 
     Thank you to the Committee for their tireless work behind the scenes so that players can take the field and court each week. 
As we look forward to 2017 with registrations, the AGM and sponsorship opportunities, I would like to take the opportunity to encourage you all to consider if you are able to volunteer your time as a coach, manager or committee member. The more people we have involved, the greater the club spirit and the less work for all involved! 
Thank you once again for 2016 and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017


           


Are you volunteering with our club this year?

Firstly, thank you! Taking on a role on a committee, as a coach or manager is integral to ensuring that our club is able to exist and importantly that we are all able to play each week.

From 31 March, volunteers working with children under the age of 18 years are required, by law, to complete a Working With Children Check. This means that all committee members, coaches, managers and club volunteers over the age of 18 years and volunteering in and around our juniors will be required to complete this free check. There are exceptions, for example for parents coaching or managing teams with their own children in it, however as a Club we believe it is in the best interest of our Club Community to ask all committee members, coaches, managers and club volunteers to complete it.

To complete the Working With Children Check simply:

1. Fill in the online form

2. Visit a Services NSW Centre to have your identification verified

3. Email the relevant coordinator to confirm (Netball, Soccer, Cricket, Club)

These checks need to be completed either no later than 31 March 2016 or prior to training or other club activities commencing. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask either myself or on of the Club Committee Members.

Thank you,

Karen Banks

Important! - Defibrillator Location

In memory of the tragic events of last year the club was overwhelmed with the charity of our members. A club defibrillator has been purchased and placed on the ground level of the Alan Hayes Pavilion at the end of the hall between the home & away change rooms.


About DURC

Dundas United Recreation Club (DURC) is a sporting club that originated in the late 1950’s. It was created to give migrants new to Australia the opportunity to play sport and to become part of the local community. As the Dundas and Oatlands area has grown over the years, Dundas United Recreation Club has continued to provide opportunities for families to participate in sports and their community.

Dundas United Recreation Club consists of three sports – soccer, cricket and netball.
