COACHES & MANAGERS:please remember our coaches and managers are all volunteers and always have the players best interest in mind. All our coaches are happy to talk to you about player progress and concerns but we would ask that you talk to the coach at right time. The best time to talk to your coach is after training or after the game. Before a game or during a game the coach has a lot to do and this is the time that the players need their coach. Team managers and the clubs committee are always available when needed. All our coaching team and committee members contact details can be found on our website.

VOLUNTEERS ON GAME DAY:thank you to everyone that helps out on game day. Without your help the club would not function and we wouldn’t be able to get the kids playing football. Every week all teams are looking for runners, water carriers, goal umpires and boundary umpires. If you can help please see your team manager. They will let you know what to do and your kids love seeing mum and dad helping out.

CANTEEN @ DUKES:throughout the year your team will have 3 half days running the canteen and BBQ. The canteen is an essential part of the success of our club as it pays for the umpires and St Johns. Your team manager will coordinate a roster for when your team is on and if you can give an hour to help we would really appreciate it. A huge THANK YOU to Ronny who helps us out every weekend on the BQQ...we couldn’t do it without you mate!!

We are looking forward to 5 rounds of football is MAY; let’s hope the rain stays away. See you at Dukes to cheer on our teams........... GO LIONS!!!!
