Australian Bench Minor Tourney - Sydney - Feb 5/6

Prawi, do you seriously think you or any other perth kids could/would come? That would be dope!!!

Can folks start thinking about who they would like to see as team Captains? You can nominate yourself too if you are interested in the position. I would love to have 4 or 5 teams (somewhere between 36-45 players) which means we can have a pretty wide spread of captains, players and talent.

For nominations please EMAIL me so this doesnt turn into school yard soccer. ~ lewis (at) bike polo (dot) com (dot) au ~ Please make the topic “Bench Minor Captains”
Nominations should be based on a player’s talent, leadership qualities, confidence and knowledge of other players (i.e going to Brisbane for nats would be a good qualifier).
You can nominate multiple people, and people from different cities too.

I forgot to add too what being a captain will actually involve!!

Captains will be involved in selecting their team during the draft and running their team and lines on the day(s) of the tourney. Definately going try to make team shirts/jerseys happen for this tourney. So I will also ask for a little help from the captains in getting that together!

what about non-playing coaches/co-captains? will that be allowed?

Will have to talk to the Perf boys when I get back to get a general consensus. My gut feeling is that we’d be lucky to have more than 2 people come, but you never know… I think at the moment we’re more focused on getting as many people down to nationals (3 teams this year!) rather than smaller tourneys, but that may change soon, just a matter of getting organised, finding time, and getting the cash to flow through.

p.s. I like the idea of the polo calender! Would make it a lot easier for us Perthians.

do you mean like the Nottingham Trent University Girls’ nude polo calendar?

I want Johnson in goal for my team for sure.

Count me IN!

that gives me a brilliant idea for raising funds for AHBPC11!

Sounds like heaps of fun, I’m in

Haven’t played a Bench tourney, sounds like a massive opportunity for heckling… Adelaide, please come along! :smiley:
