Team Coordinators have commented on a high number of people declaring themselves unavailable despite completing the availability forms a little over a month ago. This was discussed at the recent committee meeting and they thank team coordinators for their efforts and the athletes who turn out frequently.
The committee will indeed look at improving the current system around gathering availability and team selection. However, they would like to highlight we are a competing club and if athletes declare themselves available for any club meeting then they should indeed turn out when selected. Only injury picked up after submitting availability returns is an acceptable reason for not doing so.
Those athletes not yet being selected are encouraged to enter Open Graded Meeting's (OGM's) which are held every month at Grangemouth Stadium and other nearby venues.
