Here is where you will find some answers to help you Navigate the season.
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT DAY 19th February
We will be having our TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT DAY for registered players on the evening of the 19th February. This will be a chance to meet other players in the team, and meet the coached and managers. We are also having a sausage sizzle on the day. More details will be sent to your email in the next few days.
When does the Junior season start? For Junior Players, the season will start with a Rooball tournament on the 7th March. This is a round robin style of tournament where teams will play several games of shorter duration.
When do normal games start? 14th March
When does the Senior season start? Stay tuned.
Where do teams train? Teams train either at Mooloolaba State School, or the North Shore Multisports Complex. The younger teams generally train at the School. The older Junior teams generally train at the North Shore Multi-sports complex.
When do I train? Teams training at Mudjimba will train on a Wednesday. Teams training at Mooloolaba State School can train any day of the week. The choice of day is dependent on the Coaches availability, and what suits most of the team. However the coach has the final say.
Who is the coach of my team? For Junior teams, one parent needs to volunteer to coach the team. You do not need to be a SuperCoach for this position. For our U6-U8, your main role is to help the kids have fun on the field, and teach some simple skills. At games, you will encourage the children in a positive manner and ensure that all players get equal time on the field. The club and association are available to help you.
What if I don’t have a coach? It is possible to play without a coach and training sessions, but not advisable. Training sessions are when the players get to know each other, and start to develop friendships. Each game day somebody will also needs to organise the team.
Who is the manager of my team? For Junior teams, one parent needs to volunteer to manage the team. This person will make sure the team sheet is filled out, help with substitutions, and organise a roster for who will wash the shirts and bring the half-time oranges each week. The manager is also responsible for ensuring the team is aware of their canteen duty roster and field set up roster.
The manager is also the point of communication between the players (or parents). Teams typically use Facebook Messenger, or an app called Heja for this. The manager also acts as a point of contact between the club and individual teams.
Why do you need volunteers for the Canteen and Field Set-up. We are a fully volunteer sports club. The money from the canteen is used to fund club equipment, activities, and to keep registration fees low. Without volunteers, the fields will not be ready. If your team does not assist when their turn on the Roster occurs, the Canteen will be closed.
Can you tell me more about the Canteen Roster? Each team will be asked to volunteer one or two times during the season to help in the Canteen. Each roster shift is two to three hours. You may be asked to cook the bbq, serve at the counter, or assist in the pack down. Your manager will let you know the days you are asked to volunteer in the canteen. A experienced canteen manager, and committee members will also be around to assist.
Can you tell me more about Field Set up? For each home game we need to place out the ground flags, chairs, gazebos and bins. We do this 1.5 hours before the the first game of the day (typically 7am). Again, a roster will be set up for this.
