Mission Statement and Objectives
The Gap Pastime Club is a fully inclusive community based Football Club, which encourages skill development, fitness, fair play and teamwork.
The club is dedicated to the growth and excellence of its junior programs, as well as encouraging the virtues of pride and loyalty of representing the local community, by providing a pathway for its young players into our senior men’s and women’s teams.
We fully subscribe to the ethos of a ‘one club for all’ philosophy, in which juniors, women’s and men’s teams (social as well as performance) are all vital components of the club’s long term future.
The administration of the GPC will be professional, transparent and fair. All duties will be carried out honestly and with integrity and fully inclusive to both genders.
We are committed to improving the infrastructure of our club and providing a friendly, welcoming and enjoyable sporting environment for all.
We also have a commitment to ensuring our first teams in both genders need to be playing at a high enough competitive level to ensure the continued growth and standing of the club as a whole.
As a non profit community organisation, our players and members are our club. We are fully dependant on volunteers giving their time freely for the successful running of the club.
The GPC committee is responsible for the management of the club, and its members are elected at the AGM. The management committee includes a representative from men’s, women’s and juniors to ensure there is fair and equitable representation from all areas of the club.
The Management Committee delegates powers to subcommittee consisting of such members of the Club as the Management Committee thinks fit. The subsections are not intended to be another layer of bureaucracy, but simply working parties/groups of volunteers and coaches whose role is to facilitate and administer the smooth running of that group’s football teams.
