The first and most important thing for me to do is to sincerely thank all those who have contributed to this fourth issue of `On The Line`.
Inside there are articles from Ireland, The United States, Canada and the UK. I know how difficult it is these days to find time to put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, so it is great to have a broad range of material, ideas and viewpoints in this issue. If you have any articles, letters, or comments you would like to publish, on any aspect of the game or how we teach it, please send them to me.
As I write this it is early January, and as always at the start of a New Year, everybody sets plans for what they hope to achieve in the year ahead. Your new TICA Committee, selected in late November at the AGM, is no different. There are some new programmes, developments and innovations coming down the track in 2009. As always I will try to keep you informed through our `Coach Communication` newsletter and monthly text message.
