President’s Message: Round 6

Hi All Sharks,

Tackers Day has come and gone and I noticed a few wrecked parents at other children’s games post this event.  I did notice on the EPA website that they experience record level snoring across the eastern suburbs, which I would like to attribute to the helpers at the Tackers Day.  Well done all!

SharKwiz – Trivia Night

Sharkwiz 2014 this Saturday 31 May 2014 at Domeney Reserve!

This is our primary fund raising event for the year, run in a casual atmosphere with the focus not only being around money, but having fun and enjoying the company.

The SharKwiz organising committee still have room for more tables if you are interested in coming but they are filling quickly.  If you have any further queries please contact the Sharks Events Coordinator – Pamela Cordeux on 0421 989 136 or and the SharKwiz Coordinator – Mark Leonard 0418 551 553 or OR refer to our website.

Shark policies – do you know where to find them?

Since the start of Season 2014 the committee has applied a number of its policies to inform things such as our Team Selection Process, and also to investigate and address incidents of misconduct relating to on and off field behaviour and incidents.

At the Sharks we pride ourselves on getting children playing football, but this is all underpinned by our want to develop the whole person including appropriate behaviour.

The club is regularly acknowledged as being well behaved and administrated by the YJFL and other clubs.  To keep us in check can I please refer you to our policy page under the ‘About’ tab on our website and encourage you to have a read, you might find something you didn’t know.  The club is also happy to receive your feedback and comments or field a question if you don’t understand.

Education Evening – postponed

Each year the Sharks Junior Football Club hold an education evening on topical issues impacting our community.  This year’s topic is ‘Mental Health In Sport’ 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.

We Need You – please consider coming onto committee!

We are always seeking support on the 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 7. Please enjoy yourselves.  Go Sharks!!!!
