Coaching Many of our senior teams elect to self-coach. However, volunteer coaches from our parent and player community can also provide coaching for our senior teams.  Players are encouraged to participate as coaches or assistant coaches and will be provided with all the resources required to support their team, including opportunities to complete relevant coaching certificates.
Managing Each team has a volunteer manager drawn from players, parents or friends of the team. For these age groups, the manager’s role is to:

  • Communicate games and training sessions times and locations
  • Manage match day activities including player cards and game record sheets
  • Pay referee match fees
  • Coordinate the team to complete the teams ground official duties

Volunteer Managers are fully briefed and supported by the Club to complete these activities.

Ground Official Duties All teams are required to provide six adults to complete one morning or afternoon of ground official duties at a club ground through the season. Each team will receive their allocated ground official time at the start of the season.
