I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following people for taking on coaching roles with Ormond in 2017.
As we all know the role requires a great deal of time and effort; not just turning up on gameday. Without your dedication we would not be successful in training and developing our youth in the skills of playing football.
I am looking forward to another great year in all areas: team & skills development, social events and enjoying football with you - the Ormond JFC Family.
The coaches for 2017 are:
|U9||Scott Rowlands (Interim)|
|U10 Girls||Ben McCrae|
|U13||Gavan Dwyer (interim)|
|U14 Girls||Matt Johnson|
|U17 Div1||Will Robertshaw / Jason Burt|
|U17 Div3||Greg Maclaren / Jonty Sharman Smith|
We will be working with the parents of the U8 playing group to finalise coaching arrangements.
Further coaching appointments will be announced in the coming weeks as registration numbers are confirmed in some age groups.
We are also working to fill all Assistant Coach and Team Manager positions and hope to annouce these soon. If you are interested in taking on one of these roles, please let me know.

Open Letter to our 2016 U15,16 & U17 Players
Dear Season U15, U16 and U17 Players,
Thank you for all your efforts during the 2016 home and away season – we hope you had a great year. And so on to next year — preparations are now under way for the 2017 season.
We are now considering Coach and Assistant Coach Positions across all age groups.
This year we hope to grow our coaching capacity and deepen player development by encouraging senior OAFC club players and older OJFC players (U16 & U17 in season 2017) to assist with roles. Building on last year, the Club would like you to consider taking on a coaching role in 2017 for age groups up to U15.
For example in prior years,
- Matthew Johnson who was playing U17’s coached one of our U9 sides in 2015
- Ulysses Urban, U17 player was coach of one our U10 sides in season 2016.
- Will Robertshaw and Jonty Sharman-Smith from the senior club also coached our U16 sides in conjunction with Jason Burt in season 2016
- The club will fund your Coach Training and Accreditation – AFL Level 1 coaching qualification. A great qualification to add to your CV for your future employment prospects post schooling.
- Level 1 Coaching Course Details
- We are also putting appropriate supports in place to make sure you will have a good network in partner coaching staff, team managers and so forth.
- Damian Trusler will be our new junior coach mentor for season 2017 and he will be there along with me to assist you through the year.
I would grateful if you could let me know by return email if you would like a role next year.
The President, Secretary and I intend to meet with each prospective coach in the next few weeks so that we can confirm final positions before the end of December.
Season 2017 Preparation
It is important we continue to be the destination club for footballers in our area.
- In some age groups there is already large interest from new players wishing to join Ormond.
- If you haven’t already done so — I encourage you and your team mates commence work on numbers for 2017.
- It is important we are proactive— retaining old and attracting new players — registrations for 2017 are now online. Click here to Register.
- As we confirm positions and grow teams we will work on pre-season training arrangements and have these confirmed shortly.
I look forward to your response and meeting with you to discuss your vision of success for your players, team, club and self. Previous experience shows that the U8, U9, U10’s boys love the involvement and input of you older boys. By putting your hand up to be a coach you not only give yourself the opportunity to develop personally but you can play a real role in the attracting, developing and retaining junior footballers at Ormond.
