September 2018 Edition

Welcome to our latest edition. The past few months have been filled with wall to wall sunshine and this has provided the perfect background to be active.

We have picked out some highlights from this wonderful summer to share with you. Among them are a variety of inspirational personal stories and almost all of them contain the common thread that participating in sport is so much more than the result of the game. The relationship that sport has with developing teamwork and effective leadership shines from almost every page of our newsletter.

TEAM stands for, Together Everyone Achieves More.
