With the new playing season now underway all clubs are asked to ensure that their players are registered on the Servasport On Line Registration System. Quite a few clubs have new officers and may well need assistance in becoming familiar with the Servasport system. If any club needs any help with training or logging on to this system please contact IT Officer Seamus Reade on 085-1389397.
Almost half of the clubs in Kilkenny do not have a club website. Quite a few more have websites which require updating. The GAA has provided a very simple and cost effective club website solution which has proved very popular with the clubs who have taken it on. There are three examples in Kilkenny of these sites - Clara, Conahy Shamrocks and James Stephens.
With a view to helping clubs get started, we are holding an Information session in Nowlan Park this coming Wednesday evening at 8.15pm. We encourage any club who is thinking of having their own website to send representatives.

This Wednesday evening at 8.30pm we will hold a practical information/training session in Nowlan Park to help clubs who may need assistance on using smartphones to update scores from club games. Most clubs now have some individual who performs this function and an incredible service is provided, especially for people who are overseas. The session is aimed primarily at clubs who are not providing the service at the moment but it can also be used to train a second person in the club. The only ask on the night is that the person attending has access to the Club twitter account. With the championship starting next weekend it is hoped that all clubs will be up and running by then.

With new committees now taking the reins this is the time of year where registration of members is top of the agenda for most clubs. Already several clubs have started the process for the coming season. The GAA Management System(Servasport) is more than just a system to register players. Kilkenny clubs have been to the fore in using the Servasport system but there is huge scope for improvement in the quality of the information we put up. We would especially appeal to all clubs to ensure that the mobile number and e mail-addresses are input when capturing the informaion this year. The email addresses in particular affords all clubs the opportunity of communicating events to their members in a very cost effective manner. We will be arranging IT training sessions over the coming weeks. In the meantime, if any club needs any help in the registration of members please contact Seamus Reade at 085-1389397.
