Dear Stealers Parents,
Welcome back to another year of playing ball @ Stealers. Work is well underway in getting the batting cages operational for use in October and our grounds have survived the wet winter and are in good condition, just requiring some maintenance work in September.
Registrations are now open and you are able to register on line via www.stealers.com.au – just click on the registration tab on the top right hand side and follow the prompts.
You will however notice that our fees have dramatically increased and I wanted to explain to you why.
Following the redevelopment of our home ground at Golden Jubilee in 2013, where we now have the best playing fields in the junior and senior competition and also, the best lighting facility of any field, this has come at a cost and as well as increases from ABF, BNSW and RHBL, our ground hire charges have doubled from 2014/15 to 2015/16.
We have not passed on the full increase and we will work hard to make savings where we can and will continue to maintain the grounds and provide the best offering of any club within our junior and senior associations.
The per player increases are as follows:
- ABF & Baseball NSW increase = $4 – $1*
- RHBL = $7 – $9*
- Council Ground hire = $25
Total increase = $36 – $44
Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to seeing you and your children on the ballpark playing ball @ Stealers.
