Club Development Draw:
As you all are aware, March saw us launch our Development Fund scheme to enable us to reach towards our goals of developing the grounds and facilities over the coming years. In the very near future, we will start to see the 1st phase of this taking shape as we begin to expand the parking capacity to allow for quicker and more convenient drop offs and collections.
None of these strategic initiatives happen without a huge amount of work behind the scenes, so thank you to everyone involved in this to date. Neither does it come cheaply and to help fund these projects we have put in place a Development Fund scheme, enabling players, coaches, and parents to donate €10 per month which will be put solely towards these plans. As an incentive for this donation, everyone will be entered into draw that will take place 12 time per year with a monthly prize fund of up to €500 worth of cash and prizes. This club is one of the oldest in Waterford and thousands of children, teenagers and adults have played a part in the successful history of the club to date. We, as a committee, appreciate that the current economic environment is difficult but urge you to help drive this club forwards and allow us to develop the facilities that you and your children deserve. Please sign up to the development plan and help push Bohemians into a brighter new future.
Waterford Sports Partnership and Motiv8 Fitness:
We completed a six-week Active Women Programme between the club, Waterford Sports Partnership and Kevin Barry from Motiv8 Fitness in March. It was great to see a good turnout at the last session on a wet and miserable night. This programme was set up by the club as an exercise opportunity for women that drop their kids to training at the same time. Well done to all the women that attended the last 6 weeks and thanks to Kevin for delivering a fun & challenging weekly session for all.
To Premier player David Kennedy who got married in March, all in the club wish David and his bride Sara the very best wishes for the future.
