Excitement builds as the first round approaches. Please check below for some important messages.
The training schedule and Auluba Field maps are here. Please check the maps before you arrive so you can find your team. Maps will also be at the ground. Note there is no training for Miniroos/Juniors during the first week of school holidays unless otherwise instructed.

For general season dates, check here.
For fixtures and results, use Dribl (available as an app or on your browser). Follow your team to see when and where you are playing each week. To get started, click here.
In periods of wet weather, training may be cancelled, with the decision to close a field made by club volunteers, NSFA, or Council. Always assume training is on unless you’re told otherwise. Watch for a Facebook post around 3:30pm. You will also receive a notification from your manager.
Please always treat your team, opposition, volunteers and officials with respect. Spectators should stand apart from players/managers/coaches and provide positive support only – leaving the coach to do the coaching. If issues arise, try to address them early, with your manager. Refer to our Issue Resolution page for guidance.

HOODIES AND JACKETS will be with us by Friday, check them out at Auluba on Friday evening – adults and kids sizes – they are great quality items.

W35 players are on the BBQ – thank you! Steve, James and Mike are behind the bar. It will be ON whatever the weather.
|Coaches and managers wanted|
All teams need a volunteer Manager, Coach and ideally an Assistant Coach. If your team currently does not have these, please consider volunteering ASAP. If you can assist for Mixed Miniroos, email Richard at email@example.com
|Girls in-term clinics|
We have added some extra places to our free in-term clinics for G6-G11, Mondays at Howson and G12-G18 Wednesdays at Auluba. If you’re quick you might be able to grab one. Suitable for development-focussed girls, the clinics run for another 9 weeks and are in addition to training. Details here
|School holiday clinics|
Girls – there are places available in our FREE clinics at Abbotsleigh. Click here.
All – XLR8 also offer a big range of excellent clinics. Click here.
Any unused match shirts need to be returned to Brad urgently. Please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have one.
|MINIROOS – Saturday morning|
Please support our local cafe and bakery for treats and drinks. Instead of Auluba Rd, please consider parking further down KP road, on Chisolm or Vernon – just a short walk through the bush.
|PREMIER LEAGUE – Saturday afternoon|
Enjoy the BAR and BBQ as our Premier League squad take on North Sydney. 1pm Reserve Grade and 3pm First Grade. Wear your red, blue and white while you watch some inspirational football. Northside Physio will be on site if you have physio issues to discuss.
|G6/G7 – come and try, come and see|
We can accommodate more players in this popular program. If your daughter turns 5, 6, or 7, bring her along to Auluba from 5:15pm Friday. Chat to coordinators and join in training. G6 are at Auluba this Sunday from 9 to 10am. You are welcome to come and see what the program is like.
|Duke of Ed|
A reminder that high school students can do all three parts of their Duke of Ed with us. Go to Volunteering.
|Fields and amenities|
Fields: We have engaged a consultant to provide a range of options for field usage given our growing membership and grounds being used at capacity for Winter night training in particular. We will engage with our members in the coming months about these options.
Auluba amenities: Further, progress is being made with a project to upgrade the toilets, change rooms and drainage at Auluba, including better accessibility for all. We are hopeful through engagement with council we will have improved facilities over the next year.
The Glade: Finally, we highlight opportunity for feedback on The Glade master plan due 9am April 3rd, including potential installation of lighting. That lighting would leverage the field for possible evening training, which would alleviate some pressure with growing population and football participation in our area across clubs.
