First Aid courses at Hampden
Details regarding a First Aid Course at Hampden in March are available in the documents section, under Coach Info.
  
  
A good few coaches will have their first aid certificates lapsing in 2016 as they only are valid for three years so this gives some an opportunity to renew their first aid qualification.

ERSDA as a league is now registered with SYFA so registration for clubs in ERSDA should now be open.
  
Note that ERSDA will hold a club/team registration meeting before the end of January (date, venue and time to be confirmed) but, in the meantime, clubs can register by sending their forms to me for signature (enclosing sae and the appropriate cheque made out to SYFA).
  
  
Please also read the note on the NEW ERSDA registration forms for 2016.
A new ERSDA Registration document for 2016 for 4's, 5's and 7's is now available in the documents section. Please use this document for 2016 registrations.
  
  
The document is now in two parts -
a) CLUB page which only requires to be completed once per age group and
b) TEAM page which requires to be completed for each team in the age group. 
  
  
This change to the registration document was required due to the SYFA requirements regarding PVG registrations for all officials listed by clubs under SYFA registration including Child Protection Officer and Club Secretary.

Parking in Dubbs Road,Barrhead

Parking in Dubbs Road,Barrhead

The following email was received today from East Renfrewshire Council,

Eamonn,

I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the above private road,however it runs runs adjacent to the Cowan park in Barrhead.  Unfortunately we’ve received a complaint from the land owner regarding people parking in this vicinity in particular on Saturday mornings when ERSDA 7’s is taking place.
As such please can you put on the ersda website that people are not allowed to park on this road as well as highlighting this issue to all coaches who use this facility and ask them to relay this information to all parents of players.

Dubbs Road is highlighted in yellow below.
