U10 to U18 teams playing at home, please ensure you check the game day noticeboard or the Net Duty list via the Fixtures Page to see if you have Set-Up or Pack-Up duties on game day.

Club Vested Officials

U12 teams and above need to provide Club Vested Official (CVO) at each match, home and away. We also encourage U10-U11 teams to as well. 

What is a Club Vested Official?

A CVO represents the club and is responsible for the actions of supporters from their club.

Essentially, they get to wear a cool vest, help ensure spectators behave themselves and foster respect.

Who can be a CVO?

  • parent or another responsible spectator/supporter
  • Someone at least 18 years old
  • Can’t be a coach, manager, reserve player or assistant referee (linesperson) at the same time
  • Can be different people throughout the season

Boot Bin needs replenishing

With the junior season now underway, the Boot Bin is starting to look bare.

If you have spare boots lying around at home, please consider donating them to our boot bin for a new lease on life.

It will make someone’s day!
