Calliope excited about new season

CALLIOPE Junior Rugby League has started preparation for next season, with personnel and facility revamps already in the works.

The upgrades will include improvements to the existing fields and the installation of new lights, a broadcast box, an electronic scoreboard and new goalposts.

Training and recruitment for staff is also under way. A level two first aid officer and a group of level two accredited coaches will be on deck for next season, while the under-15, under-16 and under-18 coaching jobs are still available.

League president Dave Bowen said the early upgrades were geared towards attracting new players for the coming season.

“Everything's starting to happen now. We're hoping to draw more people and there will be a better atmosphere,” he said.

The club is offering membership to the public for discounts on food, drinks and apparel.

The league will be holding its annual meeting on Sunday, October 24 at the home grounds on Sutherland Street, where the new coaches will be announced.
