Footy For Fun Teams and Fixtures
Thursday 12th Nov, 2020
All details re the Footy For Fun mini season have now been finalised.
Thank you to Cam, Ian and Emily from the SMJFL for everything they have done to get this comp up and running so quickly so our kids can get out and enjoy footy again. Thank you also to Monash University’ for sponsoring the program.
We’re pleased to confirm the fixtures are now available on the SMJFL website and we have also compiled our Club fixtures here.
Please also see our team lists of those players who have expressed interest in participating.
These aren't team lists but the lists of players who have been nominated. Coaches/TMs at 10 Mixed and 12 Mixed will sort the players into two teams prior to Sunday and let the players know which side they are in.
Five of our eight teams (8, 10 and 12 Mixed) will play at Murphy Reserve, 14 Mixed and 16 Boys at Trevor Barker Oval and the 16/18 Girls at Linton St. A decision for the 14 Mixed and 16/18 Girls coaches/TMs will be about playing all the girls in the 16/16 Girls side, or having two of them play in the 14 Mixed. Once coaches/TMs have made those decisions they will be communicated to the players involved.
With most teams being oversubscribed, (16 at 8 Mixed, 15 per side at 12 Mixed), there will need to be rotations to get everyone some game time.
Players should have light and dark T-shirts at each match as we will play "light" against" dark.
If your child is child no longer participating, can you please notify us TODAY as this may affect team allocations.
This information should enable families to start preparing for Sunday, with further updates coming from coaches re expected teams.
Coaches/TMs and umpires have been asked to work together in organising the two teams at 10 and 12 and possibly playing all the senior girls in one side.
Team managers / coaches and umpires have also been asked to attend an Information Session on Saturday morning from 10am - 11am to confirm all details. A link will be sent to all involved.
