Happy New Year everyone!
2018 was such an amazing year for our club from officially being the fastest growing club in Dublin to having our first girls league winning team in the history of the club!
2018 was also a big year behind the scenes, with much work done to improve the facilities available for our members. We gained a juvenile pitch in Kingswood and we’ve made strides towards better changing facilities in Kilnamanagh.
2019 will be no different to 2018, we are still pushing hard for the changing facilities in Kilnamanagh and we have streamlined many of the back office processes in the club. To this we have partnered with Clubforce to provide a centralised membership platform for our members to use – Click Here to Sign Up for 2019.
Our Membership plans for 2019 have not increased over the 2018 fees, instead we have combined the membership fees and monthly subs into one single payment that can be paid in full or over 10 months. We have also decided to give back a little to those who register in January and February by offering a 10% Early discount. To avail of the discount, simply use the discount code EARLY19 at the checkout.
As with previous years, the club relies heavily on sponsorship and fundraising events throughout the year to help finance the club from week to week, but also to help raise funds for future developments like better changing facilities, training equipment etc. One element of our fundraising this year is our new Business Directory (found here). The aim of this directory is to encourage and develop a central location for local businesses to engage with local people. We do encourage businesses to offer our members a promotional discount, but it’s not essential. As this is a fund raising activity, there is a small charge to be listed on the platform. The cost is €30 per year or €20 per year if you offer our members a discount of some sort. There are other sponsorship and advertising opportunities available, details of which can be found here.
