Welcome to the 2020 season in what looks like being a great year for the Ballarat Junior Football Netball Club. Some important information for new football families.
The first game of the season is set for Sunday 19th April (Under 11-17) and Friday 24th April (Under 9’s). The 2020 junior fixture can now be downloaded. Please be aware under 15-17 may have changes to this fixture depending on other clubs team numbers. Under 9’s fixture is still to be released.
We do ask that if your child is going to be unavailable for any training or games, could you please advise your coach at the earliest convenience.
To help you get organised, mouthguards and football boots are compulsory for games and strongly encouraged for training. Drink bottles also are to be brought to training.
Boys Under 9’s will only require RED shorts and Boys U 11 and upwards will require both Red & White Shorts for Home and Away Matches. Could we please ask that you visit Rebel Sports and purchase the “Shorts” associated with the Ballarat Swans/Storm and ensure you mention the Club as well.
For New Players, the Club will provide match day football socks for the 2020 season, and returning players, in need, may purchase a new pair for $10.00. Please let your Coach know if you require a pair and we will organise collection over the coming weeks at their respective training sessions.
Jumpers, again will be handed out on game day and will be laundered by the club.
Most Coaching appointments for 2020 have been now finalised.
