After the conclusion of the carnival on Sunday we would like to request that everyone comes back to the Social Club rooms at Hurlingham Park (East Brighton Vampires JFC’s home ground) to celebrate the day, the conclusion of the program and see our award winners recognised. There will be food provided for boys and parents, and the canteen will also be open (snacks and drinks). Please ensure you make the effort to attend this function which is the official wind up of the Under 13 program for the year.

Now that you have collected your bag, shorts, training top, hoodie and socks please try swapping between yourselves if you need different sizes. We order a range of sizes based on previous experience, but don’t have the time or amount of stock to be dealing with each individual after training who needs bigger or smaller!

Final Under 13 Interleague Player Release: Week May 8th-May 12th 

We would like to thank all the players who have participated in our 2017 SMJFL Interleague program.

The coaches have enjoyed the 8 weeks training with the full squad, and were enormously impressed by the development of each player. We saw the boys being exposed to a high level of technical training, and saw them take it all in. It is important to note that whilst practice games were a contributor to our decision, they were only one element of many observations (skill, teamwork, game impact, selflessness, coachabilty & leadership) that we made over the time of the entire program.

Whilst we are naturally happy for those in the final 52 boys (24 Div 1 Team, 24 Div 2 Team + 4 emergencies) selected, our minds turn to the those who have not been named in the final group. We are currently tightening our relationship with the St Kilda Next Generation Academy, and expect more opportunities for next level coaching open up for you there. All players should work hard at their club footy throughout the remainder of the season, in order to be in front when their club is asked for Interleague squad nominations for 2018.

We know all of you have worked incredibly hard. Our selection of the final squad ensured many debates. In the end, this is the squad we have chosen.

Congratulations to those listed in the final squad acheiving the opportunity to play in the Under 13 Interleague Carnival on Sunday 11th June, 2017. Make sure you continue to display the dedication and interleague values of (CARE) Commitment, Attitude, Respect and Effort  you have shown to date.

NEXT TRAINING: Monday 15th May

(selected teams & emergencies)

TIME: 5.20-6.30pm (warmup from 5.15pm)

VENUE: Moorleigh Reserve – 90-92 Bignell Rd, East Bentleigh

All players MUST now be registered with their CLUB. It is a condition of Interleague participation that all players are registered with the club they played at the previous season. Any unregistered players will be released from the program.

Please note: although we do have a medic in attendance at every session who is happy to strap ankles, knees, wrists etc. players are requested to bring their own strapping tape – the tape we provide in kits is for injuries sustained at training only.

Photo Request

Please have someone take a photo of you in your club jumper against a plain background holding your name/club/jumper no. sheet (scroll down for downloadable template) and send it to us at footballoperations@smjfl.com.au if you didn’t get one done in the first couple of weeks

In order for our coaches to identify the players more quickly we intend taking head and shoulder “mug-shots” of each player. To simplify identification it would be appreciated if you could download, edit and print the following document on an A4 sheet of paper. This should be brought to the first training session you attend, we’ll take the photo of player holding the sheet of paper to identify them. If you have printer or computer issues, please CLEARLY and in large print write the information (given name, surname, club, jumper number, age group, height and weight) on a clean sheet of paper and bring that.

If you have any problems with your child’s photo being taken please discuss with us on the night.

2017 Interleague Eligibility:

Please note that any player who changes clubs before the season will not be eligible to be part of the Interleague squad. This is a new initiative designed to stop good players leaving the club that has supported them in order to find “better” football. We truly believe such players can learn leadership and help their club team improve by remaining at that club, whilst being able to participate in the Interleague program to satisfy their thirst for higher skilled football training and games.
