Firstly, the Trafalgar Polocrosse Club would like to thank all the women who nominated and supported this competition, two divisions and 10 teams is a fantastic result.
We would also like to thank the competition sponsor, The Trafalgar & District Community Bank (Bendigo Bank), without your major sponsorship this event would not be possible.
Also a special mention to the coaches that have put their hand up and been assigned a team to coach for the weekend, your time is greatly appreciated.
A few important notes for players: All players selected in teams need to nominate to their club selectors as a POOL PLAYER (or INTERSTATE POOL PLAYER) and be entered via database prior to 10pm Tuesday 27th March.
Team presentations will be held Friday night 7pm ALL players and coaches will receive a playing shirt and cap.
Intermediate and Juniors players will need to collect a ribbon to put on your bridle to be eligible for age division awards. These can be collected at team presentations.
If all players and coaches could make an effort to attend the team presentation it would be much appreciated, we would like to get photos for the competition sponsor.
Division 1 Teams, you will be given team saddle cloths that need to be returned in teams sets to Secretary Box after games conclude Sunday. Please ensure all 6 are handed back together.
Division 2 Teams, your team Captains will need to supply 6 club saddle blankets for your team to use for the weekend.
