We are looking for volunteers to fill the following roles:
Saturday Juniors Ground Official:-
We require an responsible persons to officiate on Field 1 & 2.
The role of a Ground Official during games is very important in maintaining a safe, enjoyable and harassment free atmosphere. Their primary responsibility is to the welfare of the Referees and Assistant Referees and the provision of adequate safety for the protection of players and the public.
The role will also involve opening/closing the clubhouse, entering score into MyFGC and emptying rubbish bins.
We require a volunteer to organise and run fundraising initiatives. The coordinator will need to build a team, brainstorm ideas, seek committee approval and then run the fundraiser.
If you feel that you are able to help out please email Paul at email@example.com.
Thursday, 15th March
Fields will be OPEN tonight for training.
Please be aware that the fields are still very soft. Please refrain from intensive training and do not train in the same spot. Running can be done on the outside of the fields and ball work on the fields.
Please use common sense when training.
The Clubhouse will be OPEN from 5.30pm.
For the teams that have changes to their draws with the combination of areas (North & South), you will need to add your team roster to your teamsheets.
All Coaches & Managers now have access on MyFGC to the new ‘divisions’. You will be required to add your team to the new ‘division’ before your next game.
In preparation for the end of the Lightning Premiership, Football Gold Coast have shuffled some of the teams to begin grouping them in the correct divisions.
Please check your draw thoroughly for any changes. The divisions have been renamed ‘North & South’ and ‘South & North’. Check each to find your team and where they are playing. Ignore next weeks fixtures, as these may change also.
We require all coaches/managers of competition aged teams to ensure their team sheets have photos uploaded and that the existing photos are not dated.
If photos are not uploaded, your team risks the chance of forfeiting their next game. (CMC Rule 4.3.3)
You can take the photo with your phone and upload it straight to the team sheet
To upload photos:
- Under ‘Coaches’ Tab select ‘My Teams’
- Under ‘Current Season’ select your team by using the down facing arrow on the right
- On the right of the player, Click ‘View/Edit Player’
- Where their picture should be or old picture is select ‘Browse’
- Choose the players photo, then click ‘Upload’
If you have issues, Paul will be at the Main Clubhouse from 5.30pm Tuesday and Thursday to help.
DO NOT LEAVE IT TO GAME DAY TO SORT OUT, THERE MAY BE NO ONE THERE TO HELP
Please note:- We plan to rearrange Field 1 & 2 after the Lightning Premiership. The current orientation is to help spread the usage over the season to reduce wear.
We will update the website/Facebook at around 3pm for field closures for training. We check with Council and visit the grounds and we make a judgement on the field conditions. If there is no post then the fields are open. Please allow a little time after 3pm for updates.
If it has been raining and we have kept the fields open, please be mindful of soft spot on fields and try to avoid these areas.
Field closures for games will be posted by 4pm on Fridays and 7.30am on Saturdays. We only post details about our clubs closures or if Football Gold Coast has made a blanket round postponement. It is your teams responsibility to contact other clubs about their field closures. Usually you can check their Facebook or website.
Before the season starts for our Mini-Roos (Under 6-11), here is a link of the rules of the game.
