Your Association Committee needs your help!

All Karate Parents and Students

If you’ve recently attended or participated in the Beginners tournament, followed the progress of our Australian team members at the Soke Cup in Japan, or wondered how dojo equipment (mats, helmets, bogu) are provided, then you have witnessed your Club Committee’s efforts on your behalf.

A small group of volunteers work hard behind
the scenes to make all these things happen.

A small component of your training fees are a membership subscription to the Sunshine Coast Branch of ICKFA (International Chito-Ryu Karate Federation of Australia). The Sunshine Coast Committee comprises a President, Secretary, Treasurer, Instructor and at least one general member. The committee organises tournaments, training camps, merchandise, social days, purchases equipment and provides subsidies to assist students attain their goals.

The more volunteers the less work for all.

At the Annual General Meeting which is held in conjunction with the Christmas training day and BBQ (12 December, 2010), the committee positions will be declared vacant. Your current committee, Jim Moehead, Helen O’Grady, Debbie Woodhouse, Sally Guy, Gary Saunders, John and Debbie Strazzari are encouraging people to consider nominating for a committee position, to help guide and grow the club over the next 12 months.

We need volunteers to support our club,
to help guide and grow our club over the next 12 months.

Our meetings are informal, we support each other to get the job done, there is not a large time commitment and we have a lot of fun along the way.

Do you think you’ve got something to contribute? Do you want to help the organisation that helps your family members get the best out of their training? Do you want to be a role model for your children? Then have a talk to one of the current committee members about any of the roles. Or review the rules of the association [PDF] on this website for more details.
