Social Club News

Fáilte Féirste Thiar will be delivering World Host Customer service training to all members and prospective members of staff within the club on 13th and 15th October. At the end of the course our members of staff will have Level 2 City and Guilds in Customer Care.

World Host is an internationally recognised kite mark for customer care in the service industry.

It is hoped that this course will drive up customer care standards and will result in growth in sales in our club. It will definitely instil confidence in staff and generally assist in improving standards of service within the social club.
The programme will be delivered in the clubrooms and Ciaran O’Connor will be co-ordinating the course and will inform all staff of details.

Cultural News
We had a great Summer Drama run.
We hope that for next year we will have a play written about our own club. The playwright, with the input of a small group of St Gall’s members, hopes to write the play over the winter. We would like as many of our members to have acting roles in this play as we can.

Playing News
Comhgairdheas to the senior football reserve and hurling reserve teams for their winning of the leagues. Ádh to senior football and hurling teams for their championship matches and go raibh míle maith agaibh to all mentors and players, mums, dads and supporters for their dedication and enthusiasm.

Juvenile News
We hope to have a meeting of all juvenile coaches, people who wish to be coaches and people generally interested in juvenile affairs, before the beginning of October and before our winter training commences. We would like to see more people involved in running and looking after teams and to share the workload.
I wish to sincerely thank our juvenile coaches for their amazing efforts on behalf of our children. I don’t think we are equalled anywhere. The amount of time, energy and commitment is unparalleled. Please respect them and decisions they make as all done is done solely for the good of all the children. They make their decisions for good of the team. All children are valued and will get their chance. I have heard rumblings on social network about coaches only bringing ‘so many’ to tournaments etc. There are only a specific number of children invited to tournaments and coaches have to rotate the children they bring as they cannot bring them all. Please respect the coaches’ decisions on which children they bring. Over the year, we assure you, all children will be given their chances.

Social Media
There is a time and place for comments, if that is your thing, but social network is not the place for complaining about mentors, players etc. If you have a complaint or a concern please come straight to me or the mentor you have disagreement with. Keep our issues in house. I suggest that is the much more mature and honest approach. All constructive criticism will be welcomed.
Finally, it’s that time of year again!!

Folks, Senior Cttee are holding an information evening for all mentors and juvenile volunteers on Tuesday 28th October, 7pm @ the Falls Pavillion. If you are an existing mentor planning to continue in the New Year ; or perhaps considering coaching a young team, then you are required to attend. Maybe coaching isn’t your thing but you’d like to help out in some way; if so then please come along. This is also an opportunity to meet the newly formed Juvenile Cttee. Cheers Sinead
