More club news .....
At this weeks hockey committee meeting we reviewed our budget for 2019-20 and agreed the key areas of income and expenditure - coaching, affiliations (league/associations), match days (teas/travel etc) remain the key cost areas. We cover about 40% of our overall costs from match fees and need to raise the rest of the income so tournaments and fund-raising remain as important as ever for the season ahead.
We have agreed to continue to hold the cost of match fees at £10/£5 for senior games and £3 for academy games - this makes the budget very tight but we felt we should hold match fees for the 5th year and continue to raise other income through fund-raising initiatives.
We'll also be sharing some of the exciting news from the Timperley Sports Club AGM over the next few weeks as part of the wider Club Communications on the launch of Project 18.
Enjoy the weather over the next week, get your subs set up if you want to pay by installments, order some kit and pop down to watch and play some hockey !
