President’s Message: Round 4

Hi All Sharks,

The next few weeks marks a busy time of year with the SharKwiz, Tackers Day and Education Evening all fast approaching.  Please read below for the latest updates and information.

YJFL Grading

Round 4 has been and gone and this generally marks the end of the YJFL Grading Process.

The Football Department and I are satisfied with the leagues process and in particular the consideration they have given to our applications in the process.  I would like pay thanks Kevin George – Director of Football, and all our coaches, for their common sense approach to the applications and dedication to this process – well done.

I would also like to acknowledge and thank the YJFL Grading Committee for their commitment and maturity in their consideration of our applications in this process.

Parent and Player Behaviour

This is an issue for the YJFL every year, and at time we at the Sharks are also not immune to incidents of inappropriate behaviour.  It is for this reason that the registration process requires players and parents to read and acknowledge the YJFL/Sharks Code of Conduct.

I accept that we are all human and prone to react, it is those that react appropriately that set the mantle of behaviour we expect of our Sharks Family.

On occasions things will happen on the football field that may raise your ire but I respectfully request that you leave it to the officials and the coaches to deal, if you have a problem raise it through your Team Manager as this is a league requirement.  If at the end of the game you are still NOT happy, then speak to me and I will deal with it through the appropriate channels.  Thanks for your support and understanding and please be reminded that this is about your children and them having FUN!

SharKwiz – Trivia Night!

Education Evening – 11 June 2014!

Each year the Sharks Junior Football Club hold an education evening on topical issues impacting our community.  This year’s topic is ‘Coping with Disappointment’ which will take a look at the pressures often associated with being successful whether at school, sport or in life and the by-products of these pressure on our children. More information will be provided closer to the date.

Sharks survey!

The Sharks have also launched a Membership Survey on our new website application and I encourage you all to have a look and provide your comments.  The future direction of this wonderful club will be based on your comments and feedback.

Come onto Committee!

We are always seeking support on Committee so if you are in a position to assist in 2015 can you PLEASE give me a call.  We cannot function without volunteers and the end of Season 2014 will see a number of vacancies. Without your help things will suffer or fold.


If at any stage during the season you wish to raise issue with me – positive or negative – please feel free to do so either personally or via the telephone.

Wishing all the very best for Round 5. Please enjoy yourselves.  Go Sharks!!!!
