Hi Managers,

Could you please forward the following information to your teams?
We only have one precious full sized diamond for all members of our club to use for training. There are also many requests for use of our field from other organisations, such as BQ coaching & umpiring clinics, Rams & Metro rep teams, touring invitational teams, and even the Bandits. At the start of the season, teams were allocated training times to help fit everyone in. We then manage other requests for field usage based on these training times.

Any requests for changes to training times, or for additional sessions, even if only one off or short term, must be sent to Shannon Woodrow, so she can check there are no clashes with other training sessions or activities that have already been booked and confirmed. This also applies to any private coaching sessions organised with senior or import players. Whilst we have no issue with players working hard to improve their skills, we must show courtesy to our members who have already got use of the fields, and not inconvenience or impinge on their booked time.

Of course it goes without saying that anyone who uses the field & bullpens also has a responsibility to repair & tidy them after use - deco must be screeded, the footholes filled in on the mounds (infield & bullpens), and in the batters box, and the mound & plate area must be covered with the available tarps and weighted down so they don't blow off. This is most important during the summer storm season, to reduce the risk of unplayable fields & unnecessary washouts on game days.
Thanks for your co-operation & courtesy in following this procedure.
