We would like to remind our community about our policy on taking photos at games and recording the games. A member of the public was seen recording some of a game at the weekend and it resulted in the police being called and the person being spoken to by the police and no further action was taken by the police. Our policy is and has been- there is to be NO recording of the game by mobile phone, digital cameras or taking of photos by anyone unless permission is sought by coach or team manager of the opposing team and approval is given. We prefer if the coaches / team managers can communicate this between both parties and parents should not approach the opposition coach / team manager directly. If a team doesn’t not wish for their photos to be taken or the game to be recorded – these wishes…

CRJFA Tips for a Fun Saturday morning….. Be prepared for all types of weather, it is Hobart we live in, Travel safely, leave early to allow for the conditions, finding a parking spot and not rushing, Watch the game, if you really want to take pictures or record it, please ask the opposition coach or team manager for their approval….don’t assume people are happy to have their photos taken. Respect their decision if they ask you not to. If unwell stay at home ! you know the story… We play with a Goal Keeper not Goal keepers – let your child learn from being a goal keeper, encourage from the sidelines not from behind or beside the goals. SUPPORT, ENCOURAGE, RESPECT your child, your coach, your team, the game leader and the opposition team. In today’s present climate, we are all winners if we can make it through ROUND 5…

NO Child is allowed to train or play a game without SHIN PADS. There are no exemptions. Shins must be under the soccer socks or trousers. If they are over the socks on the outside, there is a chance the shin pad will move around the leg and therefore not be protecting the shin and become annoying to the child . Nick Dale Vice President / Rules & Policy.

CRJFA Tips for a Fun Saturday morning….. Know where your children playing and get there early. Our timetable requires the games to start on time… Leave your pooch at home, you are there to watch football and your children and not to worry about the dog. Leave the coaching to the coach, the kids don’t need you telling them how to play, they are there to learn, improve and develop their skills and team work. Stand back from the side lines, let the players have the space to show you what they can do… Do not watch the game from the goal posts or in that area, do not warm up directly behind the goals of another game, BE RESPECTFUL to the goalie. Encourage all players, your team and the opposition…. a positive vocal crowd for both teams makes the game more exciting for the kids Social Distance ….family groups…
