National Volunteer Week May 9-15th

NVW_Logo_VIOLET_RGB_72dpi-300x300It’s National Volunteer Week and the MSA would like to thank, from the bottom of our hearts, all the volunteers who come together to ensure that year after year we are a strong, vibrant community. We have our trials and tribulations, and who doesn’t want to stay in bed on a wild and woolly Sunday morning in Winter, but at the end of the day we do it because we are passionate about our sport and we strive to make it better.

So give thanks to those around your club and association that put their hand up to make it possible for you to get on the diamond each week and enjoy the game you love.
