Your coach will have these ready for you at the commencement of the season.
It is mandatory for all players in all age divisions to wear shin guards and football boots.
MY CHILD IS SICK ON GAME DAY. WHAT DO I DO?
Kids are prone to getting sick in winter time! In case of being unable to make a game, please let your coach know via text message as soon as you are able to. At times, we have needed other players to help fill a team. The earlier your coach knows that you can’t make it, the more likely we are to be able to find fill in players if needed.
I'M INTERESTED IN BECOMING A COACH? WHAT DO I DO?
We are always looking for wonderful volunteers to coach our many teams! We pride ourselves on being a family friendly club and lots of mums and dads give up a small amount of time to coach. We are unable to run our club without the help of these people. If you are interested in becoming a coach, please contact our registrar Dale Lee. All equipment required for training and game day is provided and we provide support and information to all our coaches. Please consider supporting our club and coaching a team!
I'D LIKE TO JOIN THE COMMITTEE. WHAT DO I DO?
We always need more members for our committee. Running our soccer club is a big job and we always appreciate new members joining our team. We meet once a month on a Thursday night at 7.30pm at the club. If you are interested in becoming a committee member, please contact our president Tony Mileto or one of our other committee members. All help is greatly appreciated!
