Touring Ethos

 

We are on tour to develop the quality of play and sportsmanship through more competitive games, mixing with fellow team members and representing the club from start to finish.  We are all a collective group of people whose actions come to showcase the community aspect of our great club.  It is important to remember that this is an "Under Age" tour with player, coach and supporter alike, being representatives of the Club; our behaviour and consideration for other players, clubs and the general public should be thus geared accordingly.

 

As such, no person under the age of 18 years is to consume alcohol.  All adults will continue to be responsible with alcohol and set a good example in front of our junior members.
