Message from the President

Dear Players & Families,

 

A Junior football season certainly comes and goes very quickly. This weekend is the last round of home and away games and for some teams the season will come to an end and for others we will embark on finals campaigns. For some this will be a new experience and for others they may already have extensive finals experience.

As we wind up the season I would like to encourage as many players and families to attend the last home and away Sunday Awards night and our traditional 'Coaches Item Auction". This will be at The Senior Clubrooms and kick off at 6pm sharp. This is always a big night so we want to see as many players and their families there as possible.

For those playing finals we will again have a finals breakfast for the teams participating in finals. This will be on Saturday the 27th July at 8.30 am. An egg and bacon roll will be available and then we will move upstairs for a short message from the club and then from a guest speaker.

We also ask that you put your hand up and assist us in Finals catering this season. We need all hands on deck to make the finals catering easy on us all and to share the load amongst as many as possible. If 30-40 people give 2-3 hours once during the 4 weeks then we will have plenty of help. Please contact Gary Bass if you can assist on 0427 338 872.

A reminder that club property is also due back at the end of  the year. For those players not playing in finals BOTH jumpers must be returned to the Team Manager at the end of this round and it is essential that this is done on time and that everyone complies.

Whilst we have many sides playing in finals some sides will not participate in finals and I would like to thank these sides for their efforts in 2013. Every year some sides do it 'tough' and in general I thank you for your efforts and behaviour during the season.  To all Support Staff - a big thanks to all and without your help week in, week out YOUR boys and girls would not be able to play each week. 

Good luck to all players in the upcoming finals and for the last home and away round. If we don't see you in finals we look forward to seeing you on Presentation Day. This is on the Saturday 24th August and will once again have plenty of fun and entertainment and conclude with a big fireworks display. On Presentation day we also award our 'best' coach form 2013 with the 'Sam Cavarra Coach of the Year" award and nominations for this come from YOU the parents. If you think your coach has done an outstanding job this season PLEASE email a short nomination to Gail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Its up to you to nominate him and we will then form a short list and decide a winner. 

I would also like to take the opportunity to ask you to think about the direction and management of our club. I will be standing down from the Presidency at the end of this season and we need to find a successor. If you think there is a person at the club who would be interested in an Executive position please ask them to call me.  In the immediate future we will also be advertising for coaches for 2014. This year we would like to have all coaches appointed and in place as soon as possible. This will give us the best opportunity to retain players and sides can move toward 2104 with knowledge of their coach and plans for pre season.

Good luck to all this weekend and thanks to all those that make us a great club.
