What to wear

Players must wear appropriate footwear (moulded boots or grass boots) and shin pads. Players will be supplied with a playing bib for their game.

Schedule

The club has a full set of games to get through from 9am to 5.30pm.

It is recommended that teams show up at least 20 minutes prior to kick off and have referees arranged prior to kick off.

Games that are running behind schedule may be shortened.

It's meant to be all for fun and learning

Winning is not the most important factor for the gala day (and it never is with junior football). The focus for the Gala day is for players and coaches to learn about their team and playing. Most importantly it should be fun! Enjoy the day!!!
