WELCOME TO SEASON 2017

Registrations are now open for the upcoming season at the Kingborough Tigers Football Club Junior and Youth Division for Under 8’s to Under 18’s.

As you would recall last season the Board of the Kingborough Tigers Football Club adopted a strict cut-off date for registrations in age groups from Under 8 to Under 16.  The reason for taking this stance is detailed further below. A similar timeline will apply for season 2017 and we are sure you will support us in the important process.

GET YOUR REGISTRATION DONE EARLY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EARLY BIRD PRICING!!

Numbers are crucial: In previous seasons the club has found itself in a position, particularly in the Youth age groups where we have too many players for one team but not enough for two.  What this means is a scramble around schools and other clubs for more players to make up two teams. Inevitably due to injury and availability, each week becomes a struggle to field teams and places a lot of stress on coaching staff and other volunteers in the club. Most importantly we have found it lessens the boy’s AFL experience.

Why we need to know how many teams we have in each age group? This enables us to appoint coaches and seek out parent support for each team. Early appointment of coaches enables themto attend accreditation and training offered at this time. The club is also able to offer training and accreditation to first aiders and sports trainers within the pre-season period.

Rosters need to be organised: The STJFL needs to know the number of teams in each age group to prepare the season fixture in a timely fashion. Adding a team later can mean major changes to fixtures and venues and the difference between an age group having a BYE or not.
