Parent and Player Behaviour!

This is an issue for the YJFL every year, and at times 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, but 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 Coaches and Team officials to deal.  If you have an issue please 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 supporting your children having FUN!

Sharks Pink Ribbon Day!

I would like to acknowledge and thank Sharks mum Amanda McMahon for her initiative and efforts for this fund raiser.  Not only does it raise money for a great cause, but also provides us with a line of sight on how close to home this illness can hit.  Well done Amanda! 

YJFL Grading Process!

The YJFL grading process has been and we as Committee are satisfied with the outcome of the YJFL. If you wish to raise issue with any of the grading decisions please contact Kevin George – Director of Football or I.

Sharks Senior Football Club Vs Templestowe Football Club – this Saturday!

Not getting enough football on the weekend, and looking for an hour or two to run the kids around a bit whilst catching up with some friends, why don’t you try our Senior Sharks.

Our senior teams are tracking well after moving up a division in Season 2015.  The move to Division 3 has brought with it a couple of local derby’s with the first due to take place this weekend.  I encourage all the Sharks Membership to get along on Saturday and show your support.

If you’re new to the club and not sure who to talk to, look towards the scoreboard, there will be a few familiar faces. Go Sharks!

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


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. I delete negative emails!

Wishing you all the very best for Round 6. Please enjoy yourselves.  Go Sharks!!!!
