The following information is to assist all Coaches with running the team. Managers and Coaches need to communicate effectively as there are many areas, of each role, that overlap and both need to be made aware of the situation.
Volunteers must have completed the following:
- Valid Blue Card which must be linked with the club.
- Register as a Coach.
All coaching complaints are to be taken up with the Coach first. Further assistance, clarification or assistance can be sort from the relevant club committee member. The coach should update the Manager as well so to ensure that both are aware of the situation even if the manager has no input.
We need to be careful of what is posted and shared online. It is the assumption of the coach that this has already been completed by the manager.
It is the responsibilty of each parent / carer to inform the Manager or Coach of any new medical issues that may affect them playing in any way. A medical clearance from a doctor may be required and given to the First Aid Officer who will inturn inform the Manager and Coach of the players ability to play or not.
Fixtures & Changes
The club secretary will confirm each weeks matches, this is generally on Thursday. Any changes to the fixtures will be communitcated to the relevant Manager & Coach. Managers are to inform the players and parents of any changes.

Field Setup and Breakdown
Setting up and breaking down of the fields:

- If you are the last team to leave, you are to break down the field by removing the post pads and ensuring they are neatly stored in the equipment shed and locked.

Wet Weather and Field Closures
Teams will be advised when the Council has closed fields or a Club decision has been made to close the fields due to wet weather. It is then up to the Managers to make sure that all team members are aware of such closures accordingly.
If you decide to cancel training due to wet weather (other than field closures) or other circumstances, it is your responsibility to inform the team Manager who will inform the team members.
