2014 – 2015 Season

Could you please take a look at the upcoming matches for the 2014 – 2015 games to be played after the Summer break in August (remember, you will have moved up an age-group).


Summer Break:- Academy

There will be no SAQ training on Monday 28th July due to the our end of season – Keele Tournament.

Also with U8/9/10/11/13S attending the tournament there will also be no training for these age groups on the Thursday evening.

Training however will be on for the U12/GKs/14/15/16s who will not be attending Keele.

Following next week we will be entering our 3 week Summer Break. Therefore there will be no training for the following weeks:

·Monday 4th Aug & Thursday 7th Aug

·Monday 11th Aug & Thursday 14th Aug

·Monday 18th Aug & Thursday 21st Aug

Reason for the 3 weeks is the majority of the Centre have already text to confirm holidays over this 3 week period.

This means we will be doing as we did last year and having a longer summer break (when most are away) and training through the October / February half terms.

Luckily the 2013-14 Season went well regarding the weather will us only having the following breaks (none cancelled with the weather):

·3 weeks in the Summer
·2 weeks at Christmas
·2 weeks at Easter

I will be in touch regarding End of Year reviews and start up meeting for 2014-15

Also keep an eye on website for upcoming games.
