We require assistance on Saturdays in the following areas;
When the 8’s & 9’s are finished could the coaches/parents please remove the goals away from the sidelines and when this is completed could the 10’s & 11’s coaches/parents please move the bigger goal posts to the 18 yard box for the beginning of your games.
This help will be appreciated and take a little pressure of our committee. ...
A FEW TIPS. Our season kicks off Saturday 12th May. For some parents this will be your first time having your kids play in a team sport.
The first day of the season always resembles organised chaos. Please bear with us. Matching 500+ kids and their parents up with new team mates is a challenge.
Parking: Last year we closed the internal carpark to all but club officials and disabled permit holders. This was done for the safety of the children, and will continue this year. There is plenty of parking in the main carpark. Can I suggest you allow plenty of time before your game to find team mates, get shirts, and find your field.
Teams: All teams have been emailed to all registered players (via parents), to the address you entered in your rego.
Late Registrations: If you registered your kid/s late (after the on-line payment option was turned off), the you will have to attend the clubhouse and pay BEFORE your child plays! This is mandatory. It will be VERY busy so allow plenty of time before game time.
Uniform: Shorts and socks. These are available game days from the clubhouse. Boots and shin pads can be purchased from the local sports stores. SHIN PADS ARE COMPULSORY.
Each team has a bag containing the jerseys. This will be issued from the clubhouse to 1 team rep. on the 12th. With regards to jerseys, parents need to work out a roster for washing them, and making sure they come to the following weeks game. IF YOU HAVE THE SHIRTS AND CANT MAKE THE NEXT GAME, GET THEM TO SOMEONE ELSE IN YOUR TEAM.
NO INDIVIDUAL SHIRTS TO BE TAKEN HOME. We lost several shirts again last year.
Coaches: Coaches are hard to come by, so most teams will have to find one within the ranks of the parents. This should occur on the 12th or shortly thereafter. Who-ever this is, they need to get their details to me, and get a "Working with Children" check. Could I make a suggestion that parents within each team create a contact list, including the coach. Emails and mobiles are a good idea. For obvious privacy issues we can't supply these details.
Training: The under 5's and 6's training occurs a half hour before their game of a Saturday morning. From the 7's onwards it's a negotiation between the parents. Your coach should nominate a night to train. ...
