Club & County

Your Club; Your County; Your Pride and Joy

The club is where sports infants are taken by their parents and many of those infants rise up through the grades and ranks, to become national and international sports legends. The club is the cradle and the club is minded by willing volunteers who teach children the basics of:

  1.  Taking pride in your club
  2.  The basic skills of the game and
  3. To enjoy playing playing sport as a better and healthier way of life
