2017 MJFC registrations

Hi Everyone,

Registrations for season 2017 will open shortly, so keep an eye on this website for full details.

 

2017 Play for Heart charity day

Play for Heart day was established in 2011 to commemorate the significant contribution  the late Steve Simpson made to junior football in Gisborne. All funds accumulated – via a gold coin entry, barbecues, drinks et al — are donated to Macedon Ranges Health.

Details on the 2017 event will be announced soon.

President’s note

Hi everyone,

It’s great to have the 2016 football pre-season underway and the season itself is just around the corner.

By way of introduction, I’m Peter Webb, and I’m the President for the Macedon Junior Football Club.

I know many of you from previous years of Auskick and Junior football but there are many I am yet to meet. I look forward to seeing everyone during the season at the information nights and the matches. Obviously your first point of contact, once the season gets started, will be your team managers but I am also available if needed. I will be at the ground each week (love a cuppa tea in case you were wondering) or my details are included below.

Finally, a quick thank you in advance to everyone for your commitment and support each week keeping the kids fit and ready to play on match day and ensuring the day itself runs smoothly. Without parent help and support, the MJFC would not exist, it relies heavily on volunteers and generous donations to make it all happen. Ultimately, without this, its the kids that miss out and what a shame that would be. To everyone involved in the club, at every level, thank you.

I look forward to a fun season and seeing you all soon. I hope you enjoy the ride.

Coaches

Each year we have a group of parents putting their hands up to assist the club in the pivotal role of coaching and without exception it is an extremely rewarding experience for any parent/supporter. The opportunity to have such a strong influence on the development of our youth around town is invaluable and Do not be put off if you have not coached before as the support structure is terrific. The club will pay for all individuals interested in coaching to complete the Level 1 AFL Coaching Course which is a great introduction to coaching.

If you’re a bit nervous about being the main coach give some thought to an Assistant Coaching position. We have 2 Assistant Coaches for each team, so there’s plenty of support and backup within the coaching panel. If you’re interested in coaching in 2015 please contact Nick Lynch our Junior Development Officer.

There are a number of coaching courses being offered this year but it is important that you enrol as early as possible to ensure you get a place. Junior Development Officer: Nick Lynch Ph: 0447 891 020     E: nlynch@tfhudgins.com

Team Managers:

While the coaches may be seen to be always stealing the limelight on the field it is the Team Manager that makes it all possible for the coach to perform the coaching job. Some would suggest that each team requires a Team Manager just to keep the coach in line!! Football experience is not even necessary, if you are well organised, have an eye for detail and can communicate effectively with a group of parents then you are the ideal Team Manager. Bear in mind that this is a role that can be shared among a couple of parents.

We have been very fortunate over the years to have Paul Reilly as our Team Manager Co-ordinator (among many other hats that Paul has worn) and rest assured he will provide you with all of the tools and support for you to succeed in this role. So don’t dilly dally – give Paul a call and put your name forward. Team Manager Co-ordinator: Paul Reilly Ph: 0404 079 928     E: paulreilly09@bigpond.com

Trainers:

If coaching or team managing is not your thing then another critically important role around the club on match day is that of the Trainer. As a Trainer you’re the first port of call to attend to any injury on the field and at the Cats we take the safety of our kids very seriously. If you don’t already have a first aid/ trainer qualification the club will happily pay for you to attend and complete the appropriate course. And of course the skills you learn are not just applicable to a game of football, they translate to any medical related emergency you may encounter.

Matt Stewart has been our Trainer Co-ordinator for the past couple of years and is a very competent and committed professional. If you can see yourself helping the club in the role of a trainer then give Matt a call or drop him an email. Trainer Co-ordinator: Matt Stewart Ph: 54281474          E: mattandbernie1@bigpond.com
