NEPEAN FA CLUB ROADSHOW

2017 PRE-SEASON INFORMATION SESSIONS FOR NEPEAN FA COMPETITION TEAMS
 
Nepean FA are taking the information to Coaches & Managers this season in a series of Roadshow visits to each region in the district.

This year, there are quite a few changes to the laws of the game, that will affect competition teams, we’re very keen to make sure this information gets to the Coach of the team so it can be imparted to players BEFORE the season starts.
 
We also acknowledge that club volunteers have more on their plates than ever before, and it’s important to us that we give them as much support as possible.  To do this, we’ve decided to take what we consider essential information for teams and deliver it directly to coaches, managers and club admins.
 
We know that it’s difficult for everyone to get to one central location, so we’ll be taking our sessions on the road to venues in the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury & Penrith areas to make it easier on all our volunteers to get the info they need.
 
Unfortunately, due to restrictions on space & resources the meetings aren’t open to parents or players unless they also hold a registered role in a team, however, we're sure that your Coach or Manager will be getting the info back to you pretty quickly once they've attended the workshop.
 
If you haven’t registered as a Committee member, Coach or Manager of your club for the 2017 season through the MyFootballClub portal at  www.myfootballclub.com.au, now might be a good time to do so as each nominated team must have a registered coach (from U5 & up) and each team U11 & above must also have a registered manager.  Registration is free, only takes a few minutes to complete online, and ensures that the players in your team can take the field in 2017.  If you need more information on registering as a coach or manager, please see your club committee.
