NSFA has announced the abandonment of the 2021 season. Such sad news for all of us who love football. It’s the first time a season has had to be abandoned in 64 years, and the decision was taken with a heavy heart by all involved.
Thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard this year. My thoughts are with you, and I understand how you must be feeling.
Season 2021 ran from April through June and although it was shorter than usual, there were many achievements, including:
. 10-12 rounds of football for everyone, plus pre-season
. continued player growth and retention (1000+ for the first time)
. Increased female participation
. 180 volunteers and 15 Duke of Ed students
. Restarting our social calendar including clubhouse Fridays
. A new online store
. Clinics for Warrawee PS (and planned for TPS)
. Grants for expanded storage and equipment
. Agreement from Council on facilities upgrades

End of season awards
Every year we give out awards, and 2021 is no exception. We think awards are just as important, if not more so, in this difficult year. They recognise commitment to the sport and club, and remind players of good times with good friends. Awards will be available in early September and we will work with managers to distribute them.
. U6-U11 players will receive a participation trophy
. U12-U15 players will receive a participation medal
. Each U12-U18 team will receive two team awards
. Each senior team will receive three team awards
Shirts and kit bags
We will liaise with managers about collecting player shirts and kit bags.
We will have more information for you after 14 August.
Development team trials
Our player development program is going from strength to strength with several of our players now in Northern Tigers rep teams. Trials for SAP, Diamond League and Super League teams will be scheduled for November, in readiness for Season 2022.
Kissing Point FC is cohesive, growing and developing in spite of two extremely challenging years. I am very optimistic about the future of our great club. We will be in touch about season 2022!
Please feel free to contact any of us on the committee if you have questions.
