Players needed

We have had a fantastic response so far to registering, especially in the non-competition ages. We are wanting to increase registrations for players aged between 12-18 years, both boys and girls so we can make up enough for one or two teams. We will gladly take any player of any ability.

We are looking for Premier League women aged between 17-21. Contact Joel on 0422 847 792 for more information.

Important Note: we know that many of you long-time players think you have enough shorts and socks and therefore need not come to collect gear BUT we have NEW shorts and socks (shorts are now green) so you must turn up to collect your gear in time for trial games.

Remember: FINAL registration days this weekend – more here.

FINAL Registration Days

What a great weekend for Forest Rangers! Over 530 people have registered with still plenty more to come. A big thanks to all Committee members who turned up to help and to players for coming along and collecting gear.

We will have two FINAL Registration Days next weekend: Saturday 6 February and Sunday 7 February, 11-3pm at St George Masos. There will be NO other days to collect gear as team allocation starts Monday 8 February (more details here) and you must be registered and have collected your gear in order to attend. We are also running out of some sizes so hurry or you’ll miss out! This also includes our O35, AAA and women’s teams.

2016 Team Allocation

Team Allocation Process

This year player allocation will be carried out by a Player Allocation Committee comprising experienced representative coaches and senior FRFC committee members who collectively have many years of coaching experience. The following protocols apply:

  1. Where possible, players will be selected in the team that they would most like to be in. Where a player has played last year in a specific team, or has school friends in a particular team, every effort will be made to allocate the player to that team.
  2. Where the player allocation committee believes that there is enough depth in quality in a particular age group they will attempt to select a team to represent the club in a higher division. Currently St George Association has three non-competition divisions:
  • 1) Bee (beginners) – limited playing experience
  • 2) Fox (intermediate) – played before, developing skill level
  • 3) Ant (advanced) – played before, high skill level

3. Further re-allocation of players may occur during trial games held in March, where the Committee will observe players in real game scenarios.

All player and team allocations will be held at Gannons Park, Pindari Rd, Peakhurst. Please ensure you arrive 15 minutes before your time slot, ready with full playing gear including shin pads plus water.

Parental involvement as coach/manager of teams (especially non-competition, under 6 to under 11) is mandatory for teams to be formed. This will require two parents to become Registered Team Officials (RTOs) to form a team. All coach volunteers will receive training from our club Head Coach as well as a club manual to assist with coaching your team.

Ultimately, the club wishes all players to have a positive football experience at FRFC, one where they really enjoy their football and want to return in the coming years.

Hi all – here is your new (and not-so-new) 2016 Committee. We are still desperately seeking a Communications Officer, as well as an Assistant Registrar and Assistant Canteen Manager. More about what these jobs entail can be found here.

If you are interested, or want to nominate someone you know will be good (and we know there’s lots of you out there!) then please email forestrangerspublicity@gmail.com (but hurry as my time doing this job expires soon!!).
