      Manager Information Nights – 22 & 23 March




To all team managers

Our Managers Information Nights will be held at the Seaforth clubhouse starting at 7:00pm on:
Wednesday 22nd March (Juniors - U6-U11, W8-W11)
Thursday 23rd March (Youth & Seniors - U12/W12 and up)

At these nights we hold an information session about being a team manager at the club and we give out kit bags. We also give out player and coach/manager identity cards for Youth and Senior (U12/W12 and up) competition teams.

The kit bags include player jerseys, socks, training equipment and a match ball.

All managers should attend this evening as you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions about the many different responsibilities of managers, learn about the club and what’s new and be given a copy of the Club Information Manual.

There are important Working With Children (WWC) forms that all team Managers will need to submit to us on the night (please see the note below). So, we do ask that you please do not delegate this night to another parent on the team.

We look forward to seeing you there.

- Seaforth FC


Note on Working With Children Forms

All registered coaches and managers will be emailed a FNSW Member Protection Declaration Form. This form will be sent to all coaches and managers prior to the Managers Information Night.

Managers, please bring the completed forms for all officials on your team to the Managers Information Night.

We will provide hard copies on the evening for anybody that is unable to complete this prior to the meeting. Any unpaid team official that is not related to a player on the team will need to complete an online volunteer WWC check.
Refer http://www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au/child-safe-organisations/working-with-children-check. This does not apply to teams that have no players under the age of 18.

The MWFA will provide all team officials an identity card, so please ensure you have uploaded a photo to the MyFootballClub website asap. You must wear these id cards at all matches.

If you have not yet uploaded your photo you can email one to the club registrar at registrar@seaforthfc.com  Please include on the email your name and the team you are a coach or manager for.


Changes to FIFA Laws of the Game


In March of 2016 the International Football Association Board approved the most comprehensive revision of the Laws of The Game (LoTG) in 130 years. These rule changes now apply at our local level. All members of competition teams (U12 and up) should read this summary.

LOTG 2016-2017 Summary for Coaches, Players & Media.pdf
    (pdf file, 978kb)

Also available from Football Victoria, is a 3 minute video for those who don't want to read the above document.


New Committee Members Needed in 2017


Dear members, players and supporters

The club urgently needs to fill two important positions.

We’d really appreciate it if you could please have a look at the descriptions below and help us fill these roles.

The existing committee members are already putting in a huge amount of their time to run other parts of the club and simply don’?t have any extra spare time to do this work.

Please we really need your help.


Canteen Supervisor - Saturdays. This is a paid position!


This is a paid position to manage our club canteen and BBQ on most Saturdays from April to August.

The work of cooking on the BBQ and serving in the canteen will still be done by Seaforth FC teams who are rostered on duty each weekend.

The canteen generates a large portion of the profit we make each year. A well run canteen is of huge benefit to us all.


Team Duties Coordinator


This is a volunteer position that involves setting up the canteen and BBQ team duties roster and ground set-up roster and then sending out emails each week to ensure the teams will be there to help.

No football knowledge is needed for this. You just need to be an organised sort of person.

We'd love to hear from you now if you're interested.

For more information please contact:
Club Secretary: Alan Glixman: secretary@seaforthfc.com or 0420 810 142)
Club President: Richard Wright: president@seaforthfc.com or 0412 124 583)

- Thank you, Seaforth FC

Vale Naomi Tamakuni


Seaforth Football Club has been saddened by the news of the passing of Naomi Tamakuni.

Naomi was a member of the club for many years supporting her children.

She was a valued and dedicated member of the Seaforth FC committee for several years.

Our thoughts are with Connor and Tara at this difficult time.

She will be sorely missed by the Football community.

New Development Program and Changes to Grading in 2017


Seaforth FC has now established a program to deliver changes that will help to develop and support all players and all coaches at the club. This program is overseen by a volunteer group including the Coaching Director, the Club President and several senior experienced coaches.

Some of the key objectives of our development program are to ensure that every player in every team has an equal opportunity to develop and improve their football skills, to be able to receive a good standard of coaching, and to ensure that they enjoy being a part of the club and playing football with us.

One important step to achieve this is that we must have a consistent, objective grading process for our junior players. So our initial focus for the upcoming 2017 season will be making changes to the grading process for all players in U9s, U10s, W10s, U11s, W11s, U12s and W12s (note that W9s do not get graded). It is the club's policy that all these players must be graded.

We'll be adding skills drills into the trial sessions and using qualified, experienced, independent assessors to do the grading. Also, every player in those age groups will go through at least two grading sessions to ensure that each player gets more opportunity to demonstrate their true talents. This should also ensure that players get a second chance if they are unwell or have an "off" day at the first grading session.

In the top two grades or divisions in each age group the sole criteria for forming teams will be the player ability. Teams in all other grades or divisions will be also formed based on ability but, where we can, we will also take into account other factors (e.g. keeping some past team mates or friends together).

Also during this season we'll start to provide more resources, training and support for coaches. We'll be communicating with you about this throughout the season.

If you would like to know more we have a detailed description of our grading process and team allocation process in a downloadable PDF file on our website at:
» Grading Info

We hope you have a great season with us in 2017.

- Jordan Lefebvre, Coaching Director, Seaforth FC
