Oct 242019
 

Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) training will be held on Sunday, 24 November 2019 from 9:30am – 1:30pm.  Tennis SA strongly recommends that each club has at least one person performing this important role.

 

Nominations are now open, with limited spaces are available. Successful completion will enable the participant to register with Sport Australia as a recognised MPIO and get ongoing access to support materials. The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing recommends that active recreation organisations aim to appoint one or two Member Protection Information Officers.

 

The MPIO’s role is to provide appropriate advice to the club around their Member Protection Policy when issues arise. The MPIO is also responsible for providing information about a person’s rights and responsibilities and options available when making a complaint or raising a concern, as well as support during the process. The MPIO does not investigate or attempt to resolve a complaint.

 

To become an MPIO and be registered with Sport Australia a person must:

•             Register for free online training at http://learning.ausport.gov.au and complete all MPIO modules. Then save their certificate of completion.

•             Attend a free face to face MPIO training session at ORSR

•             Complete registration with Sport Australia (using the unique link provided) following the completion of both the online and face to face courses

 

Registration for the course on 24 November 2019 is available at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WHL9BNB or can be found via the Courses and Events page on the ORSR website http://ors.sa.gov.au/upcoming_courses_and_events  

 

The intended participant is required to upload their online MPIO Certificate of Completion during the registration process or alternatively the Certificate can be emailed direct to MT Smith (see contact details below) prior to attending the training session.

HTA Needs You!

 News  Comments Off on HTA Needs You!
Apr 112019
 

Image result for we need youAfter serving the HTA for 4 years, our wonderful President and awesome Secretary Myles & Tracy are stepping down from their roles. This leaves both of these positions vacant, and we’d like you to think about who at your club might be a suitable nominee. Neither job is onerous or particularly large – please consider whether you or someone you know would be interested in taking on either of these roles. They would be well supported by the existing committee and sub committees.

 

President:

  • Preside at Management Committee, AGM and SGM meetings
  • Represent the Association at local, regional, state and national levels – rarely
  • Facilitate Association activities – in conjunction with the already fantastic sub committees
  • Ensure plans and budgets for the future are carried out in accordance with the wishes of Clubs

 

Secretary:

  • Prepare agendas and minutes for Association and Management committee meetings consultation with the Chairperson of that meeting.
  • Arrange venue, date and times for Association meetings
  • Maintain a register of all affiliated club details – personnel and meeting attendance
  • Maintain electronic files

 

Please consider putting your hand up for one of these roles – the commitment is not great, but the outcomes are fantastic! Please advise the HTA of any ideas or nominations you may have for potential candidates – send them through to secretary@hta.asn.au.

 

Can’t wait to welcome some new people to the fold.

Grand Finals – how the weather might affect you

Image result for tennis feverThe big day of the season is FINALLY HERE!!

 

While the weather should be kind to us tomorrow for our Grand Finals, there’s just a couple of things to note, to ensure the smooth running of our Grand Finals. If it does turn out to be wet:

 

  • Please make every effort to complete the match on Grand Final Day. HTA strongly encourages all teams to persevere in order to finish Grand Finals matches, to avoid the inconvenience of having to complete the match on a different day.
  • Rule 13.2 of our Rules of Match and Play contains information about abandoned finals matches. Every club should have a copy of the Rules at their venue if needed.
  • No person can be forced to play on wet or slippery courts. 

 

The Hills Tennis Association wishes all teams participating in tomorrow’s Grand Finals a wonderful day of tennis and the best of luck!

Come out and watch the top teams in each division tussle for that elusive title of “Premiers”!
