The best source of coaching information for new people is the FFA curriculum found at


Re-Turf Myamblah Fund 

Finally, those who played last year will have noticed the “patchwork” nature of the turf at Myamblah. This is due to our long running project (4 years now) to re-turf the main field so that it survives having nearly 450 people play on it every weekend.

We have made good progress thanks to a grant Mike Willing won from the NSW government, but there is more to do.

In order to try and raise the money, we are launching the “Returf Myamblah Fund” and we are looking for contributions/sponsorship. For any sponsorship of $250 or more by an entity with an ABN, we will issue an invoice for that sponsorship. Any help will be appreciated – especially by the kids!! If you can help, please email and I will forward details.
