2017 Shirt Presentation Day

Lamo @ 12:56 pm April 10, 2017   Comments Off on 2017 Shirt Presentation Day

As noted in recent emails, our Shirt Presentation Day for 2017 has been marked down for Saturday the 22nd of April. We are pleased now to be able to share with you the schedule for the day.

Note the special arrangements for the U13Cs (Dalla Costa), the U12 Wallabies (Paoli) and the U11 Joeys (Mishra) due to their coach’s playing commitments with the Senior Men and Reserves.

In addition to the presentation of shirts for U8 to U16 players, all Spiderlings and Saturday SSF (U5 to U7) program kids are able to come down and pick up their playing kit for the season. Program Coordinator Rachel Cummins will be handing out kits from 10am through to 2pm.

Once again the committee has worked hard to arrange bubble soccer, bouncing castles and other games (weather permitting) to appear alongside the shirt presentations, starting from 9am and running through to the end of the day. Just buy your ride tickets at the ground on the day and get involved!

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday the 22nd of April.

2017 Trials and Pre-Season Dates

Ivan Dalla Costa @ 10:24 am November 17, 2016   Comments Off on 2017 Trials and Pre-Season Dates

Trials and grading for U8 to U16 for both girl’s and boy’s teams will commence February 2017 and be conducted over a 3 week period. After the conclusion of the grading period, teams will commence pre-season training ready for the first match late April.

All existing and new players are welcome to trial for the 2017 season. Below are the commencement dates and further information.

If you are an existing player (ie played in 2016) you will receive an email from the club in January reminding you of the trial dates and more information.

If you are new to the club and intend to play in our U8 thru to U18, please register your interest by clicking here and completing all the information. You will be added to our date base and we will email you prior to the commencement of trials. Unlike other club’s we do not require a upfront fee to secure a spot.

It is important that players attend all 3 grading sessions in their correct age group , even if a player “played up” a year in 2016 . After the grading period, and at the sole discretion of the Technical Director and Vice President, we may invite players to play in an older age group.

Ensure you arrive 15 minutes before your allocated time and report to the registration tent. All players must wear boots, shin pads and bring a water bottle. It is advised to use sun screen and wear a cap.

Please click here for complete details on grading dates, times, venue and age groups

For all senior women and men’s teams including reserves and U18s, please click here for your pre-season details.

The Spiderling and Saturday program for U5/6/7 boys/girls will either commence on Saturday 22nd or 29th April. Closer to the date we will communicate with all parents.

Registrations for the 2017 season are now open. Fees can be viewed here.
