ANZAC Day 2013
Thanks to ALL our players, parents and officials who braved the early chill to take part in this year's march and ceremony. The reward was a beautiful sunny morning filled with a great community spirit.
Ramsgate Soccer Club numbers were estimated to be around 80, which is a great improvement on last year's 60 and everyone looked fantastic in their Ramsgate colours.
Thanks to Isabella and Lachlan for laying a wreath on behalf of the club and for all our players for wearing their uniforms, displaying a great pride in their club.

Hi coaches/managers at Ramsgate RSL Soccer Club. Please see the following information re allocation of training grounds for Ramsgate Soccer teams. I apologise for the delay in getting back to you with this information, however the club wanted to complete setting up of Tanners new game fields before allocating training areas.
Rationale for Training Ground Allocations:
This season, Ramsgate will be playing games on the full size field at Scarborough Park, and on 3 small sized fields at Tanners Reserve (Chuter Avenue). The priority is to minimise damage of these fields by training away from the actual playing areas. The small sided field areas used for games at Scarborough Park last season will not be used for games in 2013 and are available for training. Lighting is also an issue as daylight saving hours have ended and the evenings grow shorter. The club’s policy is that teams train on the strip along the eastern side of Tanners and/or under the lighting along the eastern side of Scarborough Park. A basic diagram of Tanners training fields allocation is included for your reference. If your team is able to train before it gets dark (basically 4.00pm-5.00pm) then your side can train anywhere within the Ramsgate section of Scarborough Park as long as you don’t train on the main field.
Please refer to the table for training allocation days, times and locations below. If your team is not allocated a training time and/or location on the training allocation roster, or you are currently training at a different time/location please let me know either by emailing me or calling 0452 435 985.

It has been brought to the attention of the club that there are players in all age groups who aren't wearing shinpads at training. When it comes to shinpads, training and games are no different. Please make sure that all players are wearing shinpads at training and games. No shinpads, no play.
