Full Time for Season 21

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

Team photos
Photos are currently being distributed via managers. 

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.

Looking ahead
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.

Best wishes,
Andrew Frost
KPFC President
on behalf of the committee

Volunteering Opportunities

I’m enormously proud of the volunteers who fill a wide variety of roles and work together as a fantastic team to run the club. Thank you one and all.

Volunteering can be very rewarding, and it’s a great way to get to know the community. Please consider taking up one of the vacant roles listed below. All roles are flexible, and do not require you to attend meetings. You will be well supported in getting up to speed.

Latest News

Trivia Night – save the date!
Our much-loved trivia night is BACK – Saturday July 17 at Turramurra High from 7pm. The trivia night is always a fantastic social outing, with BYO food and drinks, a hotly contested quiz, raffle and more. Mark the date in your diary and stay tuned for details.

Walking Football
Walking Football is coming to Kisso, and you’re invited. Big thanks to Rhondda Shaw for getting the program up and walking. To express interest, email Rhondda at rhonddashaw@hotmail.com.

Walking Football is a non-contact, low-impact game, suitable for men and women of any age. Matches are played with modified formats (eg 6 v 6) on a small pitch, with a shortened game time. There is no running allowed, and the ball can’t be kicked above head height. The focus is on the social aspect of the game – we guarantee there will be either coffees or beers afterwards. More detail via this one minute video.

NEW online store
It’s easy to order your Kisso kit. Check out the new online store for jackets, hoodies, socks, shorts, beanies, caps and more. Just head to the website.

June long weekend
All players have matches on the long weekend (12 and 13 June). Please tell your manager if you will be away.

School holidays
Miniroos and juniors – there are NO MATCHES for you on the middle weekend of the school holidays (3 and 4 July). Seniors (18+) have fixtures that weekend. Please check the dates page of the website for all important dates and an overview of the season.

Check out the video Football Australia made at Auluba, highlighting our volunteers! Thanks to everyone who answered our call-out for volunteers. We still need of a VP for our Mens All Age teams – please email Jeremy Tucker if this sounds like you.

Our sincere condolences to the friends and family of past player Garry Mackay (aka “Kiwi”) who passed away recently from cancer.

Let them play
A reminder that miniroos football is all about getting kids into the game in a fun, enjoyable way. Support and encourage your kids in the same way you would want for yourself. Please watch this video on the topic. And an excellent, short video for coaches here.

Rotation of Players
It is important in the younger ages (up to 14) that all players have a go in all the different positions. Pigeon-holing players at a foundation age level is the wrong approach to take. The benefits of rotation include:
. Increased awareness, understanding & empathy
. Advanced skill development
. Ability to adopt different mindsets from an early age
Please rotate players across all positions throughout the season. The scores are quickly forgotten by the kids. There are apps that can assist with managing positions and time on field and one that we recommend is Subtime.

Best regards,
Andrew Frost
