President’s Message: Round 2

Hi All Sharks,

Things are up and running, and probably a little smoother than we on Committee could have imagined, particularly with the loss of a ground and the introduction of the new YJFL rules effecting our Under 8, 9 and 10’s. To this end I thank you for all for volunteering to help and for your patience’s. Here’s to a great Season 2015.

ANZAC Day Round 3!

I would like to think that the Sharks were pioneers in recognising the ANZAC legend within the YJFL, with all clubs now recognising the people that fought to provide us with what we have today.

This weekend your teams will be asked to stand in lines of solidarity, while listening to the reading of the ode, and participating in a minutes silence. All small gestures for what these surviving and fallen hero’s provided us as a nation. I encourage you all one and all to participate in this day.

SharKwiz – Trivia Night!

Sharkwiz 2014 is fast approaching…Saturday 30 May 2014 at Domeney Reserve! This is our primary fund raising event for the year, so please see your Team Managers and the website for details.

The SharKwiz is an informal evening and a great opportunity to get to know the families in your teams, whilst having a bit of fun.

The SharKwiz organising committee are seeking sponsorships and auction items for the SharKwiz. A flyer explaining the sponsorship opportunities available and request for any prizes/auction items that the Shark’s Community are willing to donate is displayed on our webpage.

For information please contact Michael Newton – Events Coordinator – on mobile 0421049904 or via email

YJFL Grading Process!

Each year the YJFL embark on a grading process that considers last year’s results, information provided by your club at the commencement of the season and post the grading rounds, and an assessment of results during the first few games of the season.

On assessment team’s maybe moved up or down a Division. The Club has no other influence over this other than through our submissions as explained above.

In the past this process has created difficulties for the Sharks Committee, so as a result I encourage you all to familiarise yourself with the YJFL By Laws – Schedule A – via the Sharks webpage under the Policies tab.

If post the grading process you wish to raise issue please contact Kevin George – Director of Football or I, please do not contact the league.

Coffee Van!

If you were aware the Sharks have engaged the services of a professional barista at Domeney Reserve near the scoreboard. Apparently the International Roast and Lipton just wasn’t cutting it????

The lovely Janine from My Coffee Spot will be present each Sunday morning early to provide you with her range of coffee, tea and milkshakes. The Sharks thanks Janine for her service and support of our club.

We Need You On Committee!

At the end of Season 2015 a number of positions will become vacant on Committee. These vacancies will include the four primary roles – President, Director of Football, Secretary and Treasurer.

We are NOW seeking your support, so if you are in a position to assist can you PLEASE give me a call.

We cannot function without volunteers and without your help things will suffer or fold.


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

Wishing you all the very best for Round 3. Please enjoy yourselves. Go Sharks!!!!
