Our Mini-Roos (U7 to U11 Boys & Girls) and Junior Girls (U12 to U16) registration and information day for the upcoming 2018 season will be held on Sunday 21st January 2018 at B.T.Connor Reserve, Broadhurst Avenue Reservoir. The Club rooms will be open from 10.00am to 1.00pm.
Based on interest received so far, we are expecting another big season this year, so please get in early to ensure that your children don’t miss out.
2017 players who register on the day will have preference for the 2018 season, with remaining spots offered to new players. To take advantage, please ensure you register on the day by paying a $250 deposit with the balance of fees payable by 28 February 2018. Please note: The Club is committed to growing the number of junior girls playing at Preston Lions FC and will once again keep fees low at $400 for 2018 (for U13/14 and U15/16 girls).
Please print and complete the registration form (download link below) in advance to save yourself some time on the day. Registration forms also need to be submitted on this day with the payment of the deposit.
Dependent on player numbers and coaches, we aim to field a maximum of three teams per age group. To provide an environment for players to develop and enjoy the game, our aim is to select balanced teams with like-minded players of similar ability all playing at the appropriate level for their age group and skill level. Team selection decisions will be made by the Team Coach in conjuction with the Technical Director and Junior Coordinators, and we aim to have this process completed by the end of February 2018 at the latest (with the competitive season commencing in mid-April 2018).
2018 training commences at 6pm Tuesday 6th February. For the first week, all Mini-Roos teams will be training on Tuesday & Thursday nights. Under 7 teams will have 1 x one hour training session per week. Under 8 to 11 teams will have 2 x one hour sessions per week and junior girl’s teams will have 2 x 1.5 hour sessions per week. Training sessions will be held on either Tuesday & Thursday nights or Wednesday & Friday nights; this will depend on the coach’s availability and ground access. We will advise each team’s nominated training night and times for the remainder of the year during this first week.
We have also included a link below regarding our 4 to 6 year old Saturday morning Lion Cubs Program for those that may be interested. Please feel free to forward this information to family and friends that may have children in these age groups. Term 1 of the program commences at 9.30am Saturday 3rd February, 2018.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday 21 January 2018 between 10.00am and 1.00pm.
