Its that time of year again, PRE SEASON TRAINING time!


Training for all junior competition teams will kick off on Thursday 12 March @ 4:30pm. The sessions will go for about 1.5 hours, combining some training drills with match-based games.

For the first three weeks (12, 19 and 26 March), the training will be held at Burns Bay Oval.

There after, we will be conducting training at our home base, Blackman Park on ovals 3 and 4.

We will be using teamer as our primary game and training notification system again this year. When you receive an email to join, please make sure you have your mobile number added to your profile. We use this to notify you of any changes to the schedule or washouts.

At this stage we are entering 4 teams across 3 divisions (Under 9, 10 & 11) into the Greater Sydney Junior – Sydney Harbour North league. However, we won’t be able finalise the teams until after we conduct a trials session on 26 March.

As per previous years we have a core group of rules which we expect both the kids and parents to abide by:

  • We are here to have fun.
  • Training is a must. If you are unable to attend then drop us a email. We understand that from time to time kids will not be able to make it due to school commitments.
  • Encourage each other. Putting down a team mate or a son/daughter is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.
  • No arguing with the umpire. Players on the field and parents off the field.
  • Listen to the coaches at training. If the children are disruptive and not listening they are given a warning. If its repeated once, they sit out the drill. If its repeated twice, they sit out the balance of training and need to explain to you guys as to why.

If anyone is able to assist the coaches with weekly training, please let us know.

See you on the footy field!
