Player Photos

 

The SSFA has advised that the following age groups will need to renew their MFC player photo this year:

 

·       ALL U10 Boys & Girls and W10 Girls.

·       ALL U14 Boys & W14 Girls.

·       ALL U18 Boys & W18 Girls.

Gear

Gear is available for sale at the grading days and also at Billa Rd & The Ridge canteens on match days.

PRICES:  Socks - $15/pair; Shorts (all sizes) - $30/pair; Set of shorts & socks - $40. 

Shirts for senior teams are also available at $40 each. 

For further information please contact the Equipment Officer or the Assistant Equipment Officer.

 

Coaches & Managers

All teams will need a Coach & Manager. However for the U6 & U7 age groups, team numbers will be smaller (only 5 to 6 players per team), and whilst each team will need a manager, it may be beneficial to partner two teams for coaching and training purposes. The Sutherland Shire Football Association (SSFA) has requested that ALL COACHES and MANAGERS register on MFC for these roles (no fees applicable). This is to allow you to be correctly associated with your team or teams.

 

Working with children (WWC) application must be completed by any coach or manager who is not a direct relative of a player they are coaching or managing in their team. Please go to the website www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au for further information on how to apply. The Bangor FC requires a registration copy of your WWC application & your date of birth once you have had your application form processed. This needs to be emailed to our club protection officer Hayley Warren protection@bangorbrumbies.org.au for compliance prior to the start of the season.

 

Training normally occurs once a week for 1 hour. If you would be interested in coaching a team, in what is a rewarding experience please contact the Technical Director Junior Teams (technical_director@bangorbrumbies.org.au) prior to the grading trials.

 

There will be two coaches and managers meetings held throughout the season.

The first meeting will be held at Club Central Menai, on Monday 13th March 2017 at 7.30pm.

It is vital that at least one representative from each team attend these meetings as important information is provided on all aspects of the season. It is also an opportunity to

ask any questions you may have.

 

Orientation Night

To assist all coaches and managers and provide information on what to do, where to go, what forms need to be filled out etc, an orientation session will be run on Wednesday 1st March at 7.00pm at Billa Rd Oval. This is particularly helpful for all new coaches and managers.

 

Training Equipment

Coaches and/or managers can collect their training equipment on Wednesday 1st March, between 6:30pm & 8.00pm at Billa Rd Oval.

 

Sponsorship

The club again welcomes our sponsors this year and encourages all club members to give the club's sponsors the first call. The club will provide advertising space on its website, as well as other promotional opportunities. If interested please contact the Promotions Officer.


Referees

We need referees for our Small Sided Football (SSF) matches. SSF referees must turn 13 or older this calendar year. If you are interested, please see the referee’s

coordinator today or on grading day. In addition, we need volunteers (usually senior players, parents etc) to referee competition matches when no official referee is appointed.

If you feel you can assist us please contact the referee’s coordinator. For anyone wishing to become a Black & White referee (must turn 14 before April 1), or if you want to

become a club referee and want a refresher course on the rules, the Referees Association will assist us to run our own in house course if we get sufficient numbers. Please

contact one of our referee’s coordinators if you are interested.

 

All club referees will be paid for the games they cover. Fee structure is as follows:

SSF Non competition matches (U6-U7)  $10

SSF Non competition matches (U8-U9)  $15

SSF Competition matches (U10-U11)     $20

Junior matches (U12-U16)                      $25

Senior matches (U18 & above)               $40

 

Ground Control and Canteen

Throughout the season, teams will be rostered to do ground duty. This involves ground set up/pack up, BBQ duty or acting as ground control. Teams rostered on will be advised at least a week in advance. Please make yourself available when your team is on duty. In most instances your team will only have duty twice in the season. This means we are only asking for a couple of hours of your time, perhaps less, on each occasion. Ground duty forms an essential part of the weekly running of the club. If a team cannot carry out their required duty, it could mean that particular team may not be allowed to play their match.

 

Competition Team Set Up & Referees

Please be advised sometimes during the season that the first match of the day for a Bangor FC competition team U12 & up to play on either the Saturday or Sunday at the Ridge. Your team may be required to help with putting up the soccer goal nets & mark the lines of the fields at our home ground at the Ridge 1 & 2 playing fields before your match can commence as part of set up. The Bangor FC would also ask all teams to be proactive in helping with & maintaining sideline roping is correct & in place. All seating

is at the required distance from the field sideline in accordance with the rules & the match referee on the day. Please consider that our Bangor FC committee are only volunteers & our club needs as much help as possible to successfully run & function our grounds before, during, & after matches are completed. Please be aware at certain times in the season that our Bangor FC competition teams may not have a referee allocated to cover their game. It will then be up to your team or the away team to find a person to referee your game. Above is a pay scale where our Bangor FC will compensate an individual to referee an uncovered match. In these circumstances, if teams are unable to supply their own referee(s) then the game must be forfeited.

 

Committee & Volunteers

At the time of printing this information sheet, there are eight committee positions vacant – Assistant Secretary, Assistant Registrar, Assistant Draw Secretary, Referees

Coordinator (Comp), Assistant Grounds Officer, Assistant Equipment Officer, All Age Delegate, and General Committee Member.

If you feel you may be able to assist in these positions, please contact the President.

The club is also looking for volunteers that may be able to assist committee members on ground control once or twice during the season, or when situations arise that require

extra help with field set up, pack up or working on the BBQ, or in any other way that the club may need you in an emergency. If you are interested in assisting the club in this

way, please contact a committee member.

Notes on Grading

 

Players must be registered with the Bangor FC to play & grade on grading days. If you are playing up an age group higher than your actual age, please inform the Grading

Coaches prior to grading. Please be aware that this will be at the discretion of the Grading Coach if a player is accepted to play in a team up a year in age. If the Grading

Coach has not been advised about this on grading days then the player will remain in his or her correct age group. Please also be aware that there are physical risks of playing

up an age group. Our Grading Coach Enzo Sansone is a fully qualified professional soccer coach who will endeavour to get the best result for each player that attends the

Bangor FC grading. If your son/daughter is unable to make these dates it is important that you let the Grading Coaches know beforehand. If there is any information that is

relevant to the grading process please let the Technical Director Junior Teams know this prior to the grading date. It is highly unlikely that any changes can be made after

teams are selected. Whilst the club has a policy of attempting to meet requests to play with friends for U6 & U7, no guarantees can be given as individual players abilities must

be taken into consideration. The Club’s experience is that children will enjoy their football more if they play in a grade that is aligned to their ability.For U8’s and above, teams

will be selected based on a players’ abilities.


Senior Team Men’s & Women’s

 

For senior teams, there will be no grading or meetings of teams. All Coaches & Managers or designated players of senior All Age teams will need to email the Shane Hockings

at shane.hockings2@gmail.com. You will need to email your complete team lists which include all players first & last names. Where possible please include the players MFC

number and coaches & managers names & contact details. Please also advise of a preferred training night & time. Please include any grading requests for the new season.

Please get the above details emailed to Shane Hockings ASAP.

 

Trial Games

Trial games are being arranged at present. It is possible that not all teams will get a trial game, however all efforts will be made to get at least one trial match for all teams.

Under NO circumstances are trial games to be organised without going through Bangor FC Committee. Coaches and Managers will be informed as to any games that have

been arranged for their teams.


Training Venue Availability

Training cannot commence before Monday 6th March 2017. Teams U6 through to U12 & girls/women’s teams will train at Billa Road Oval. Boys/mens teams U13 and above

will train at The Ridge (No.1 & 2). Some exceptions to this may occur depending on field availability and training times.

Many of these volunteers have been on our club committee for a few years without assistants in their roles.
 
If you love our Bangor FC and have a passion for it and can give up some of your time to assist we would love to hear from you.
 
Our long term survival as a football club depends on people volunteering to help on our Bangor FC committee.

Ground Control Duties
 
Each weekend a lot of activities need to happen at the right time for the games to run smoothly, your participation is vital to making this happen.
For example grounds need to be setup, changed and packed up, BBQ needs to be setup and manned (Sunday teams only), team managers and ground control needs to be visible.
The wearing of yellow and orange vests by the team manager and ground control is a requirement of the Sutherland Shire Football Association and is to make it easy for officials (referees, Association and clubs) to locate the responsible people when required.
Ground Control duties include being a point of contact for the referees if some thing needs attention (line marking, goal net repairs etc), ensuring spectators stay back from the side line and don't stand near the goals, be present in the crowd to help keep things calm (simply being there is usually all that is required).
It is your club and your help in making the weekend activities run smoothly is appreciated by all.
See the links below for details of the Clubs expectation of teams participation in making everything run smoothly. 

 

SSFA Information App
 
 
The Sutherland Shire Football Association (SSFA) has purchased a new APP called Gopha that we will be using to disseminate information in a more efficient and effective manner.
 
There are numerous categories within the APP that will cover everything from wet weather, representative football, coaching courses and Fixtures, Results and Tables for competition teams.
 
The APP can be tailored to suit your needs.  So for example, if you have no connection with Sunday Senior football, this can be turned off through Settings/ My Profile/ SSFA/ and then turn each page on or off.  And it even has the ability to be set to another language!
 
Below is a link to the installation guide. It is free to download and available for iPhones and Androids.
 
Please encourage all players, coaches, managers, parents and supporters to download our new Gopha APP

 
 

Code of Behaviour
 
We would like to remind all Coaches, Managers, Parents, Carers and Players of the Codes of Behaviour, in particular the Parents Code of Behaviour, and what we as a club expect from all those who are involved with this great club.

Bangor FC was established in 1987 and now has one of the best reputations throughout the Shire. Our reputation includes that of being a ‘family club’. We always strive to maintain the highest standards of integrity, and our conduct and behaviour must reflect these standards.
 
The Committee will not tolerate any behaviour that does not comply with the Codes and with the high standard of behaviour expected.

The abuse of children will not be tolerated. The abuse of referees will not be tolerated.
Remember;
•    Children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours,
•    Focus on your child’s efforts and performance rather than whether      they win or lose,
•    Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a game
•    Respect the referee’s decision (even if it is incorrect) and teach the children to do the same,
•    Encourage children to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence
•    Encourage children to participate, but do not force them
•    Show appreciation for all volunteer coaches, managers and referees – without them there would be no weekend sport for your child to participate in
•    Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every child (player and referee) regardless of their individual playing ability, cultural background or religion, and
•    Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from this club.
If anyone has any questions about what is expected of them please ask a Committee member, or you can review the codes on our website bangorbrumbies.org.au or on the SSFA website shirefootball.com.au.

Concussion in Recreational Sport
 
A major issue in all recreational sport in recent times has been what to do in the event of a player suffering a concussion. Concussion is a serious issue and we all have a responsibility for the safety of our players. Please see the link below for a guideline on what we should do in the event, that we believe someone may have suffered a concussion.

No Smoking at Sporting Venues
 
Please be aware of the recently introduced non smoking regulations at sporting venues. Non Smoking signs have been put up at Billa Oval and at The Ridge fields in the designated non smoking areas. Please see below:
$550 FINE FOR SMOKING AT A SPORT EVENT

Please be aware that NSW Health - Tobacco Compliance Officers will now be issuing fines to people found smoking at sporting events.
 
Smoking has been banned at sport venues in spectator areas since 7 January 2013 under the Smoke-free Environment Act 2000.
Club members and spectators are still saying that they are not aware of the new regulation and have not been advised by their club.
Unfortunately this excuse will not prevent the individual from receiving a fine but there is a need for clubs to reinforce the awareness of this new regulation.
The fine for smoking at a sporting event is $550 to the individual smoker.
View the following for more information and to order resources to help increase awareness:

Player's Equipment Policy
 
Football NSW has recently consolidated all its rules and regulations in respect of playing equipment into one document known as the "Player’s Equipment Policy".
The purpose of the Players Equipment Policy is to elaborate on the current rules of FIFA, FFA and Football NSW and to emphasise the recent decision made by the International Football Association Board to allow the wearing of the Hijab in football matches.
 
A copy of the policy can be found at the link below
