A quick note for U5-U9 continuing players. Belnorth keep teams together in these age groups unless requested otherwise, so you don’t need to let us know your child wants to stay in the same team. Only contact us, if you want your child to try a different team in 2024.

Child Supervision

Adults must be alert to and aware of risks and hazards and the potential for accidents and injury throughout training and competition.

Ensure that there is always appropriate supervision where the change room/toilet facility is accessible by adults or in ‘public’ change rooms/toilets.

See something, say something.

Do you still have a jersey from last year?

If so, please email to organise a time to hand it in.

Buy/Swap/Sell Facebook Group

On the back of the successful boot bin, we have set up a Facebook Group to let Belnorth members, current, past and future, have access to pre-loved Belnorth gear, such as shorts, socks and other merchandise, along with boots.
