Team Photo Schedule 27 May 2018.png

For our Team Photos to run smoothly, we ask that all Team Managers, Coaches, Team Officials, Parents & Players carefully read following instructions:

Players/Parents 

Please arrive 5 minutes early and enter via rear door off car park. As we run to a tight schedule, unfortunately, we're unable to wait for late arrivals.  Any players that are unavailable for the photo will have their name included in the player listing. 

There are to be NO PARENTS in the room at any time (even to take a quick photo - please leave this to the experts). Only Team Officials, Players and Committee Members are required. 

Please wear RED Shorts and have your football boots polished clean. When you are waiting for your turn, it is important that you keep the noise down. It’s tricky for the photographer to hear you and it’s distracting for the team that are getting their photo taken to look their best when there’s a mini party happening outside the club room!

Team Managers

Please line up your players in height order – tallest to shortest BEFORE they enter the room. Once the photographer has set up the players, he/she will take a photo their mobile and will require you to write down their names in row order i.e. officials, back row, middle row, front row, etc... a sheet will be provided at the time.  Please ensure there are NO parents are in the room.

Triple check spelling of names and ensure the list you bring with you as accurate (having player numbers helps for quick player name recognition).

Team Officials (Coach, Assistant Coach, Runner, Trainer & Team Manager)

Please wear your Ashburton Community Bank ‘Officials’ Ashy polo (if you have one), otherwise, you will be supplied with Ashy gear for the photo.

Please dress in BLACK trousers/ pants/jeans for consistency. Despite what the weather is doing in the club rooms, no jackets please, the photo won’t take long to shoot! You may have up to 5 officials in the photos – no more.  It is up to you to decide who these will be.

Presentation Day

The 2017 season will finish with Presentation Day on Sunday 10th of September. This day provides an opportunity to gather as a team for one last time and celebrate the many achievements of the season. 

This year, we invite all teams to gather as a year group in our social room in the Pavilion. We have attached a schedule so that you can see the start (and finish time) each year group has been allocated. Each year group will have a 40 minute time slot, allowing for:

  • Welcome by a Committee Member
  • Coach’s Presentation
  • Distribution of Medals and Trophies, Team Photos, Player Yearbook and Canteen Vouchers
  • Thank you / Close by a Committee Member
  • Club Song – Belt it out together one last time so get your videos ready parents!

For year groups that have four teams, use 10 minutes each as a guide, whereas year groups that have three times (or less) will have more time. 

It’s going to be really important that players (and parents) are all sitting down quickly so that presentations can get underway without delay. The room will be set up so that players will be closest to the stage and parents will be at the back of the room. Committee members will be available to assist you throughout the day should you need anything.

The Canteen will be open for each player to redeem either a hot dog OR a sausage in bread and a can of soft drink OR bottle of water. 

If you would like to stay at the grounds with your team, you’re most welcome, however please note that presentations will take place in the social room until 3:45pm, so as not to interrupt the presentations we will open the change rooms for toilet access. 

We’re looking forward to a great Presentation Day with you all.

Go Ashy!
