UNIFORM

RATIONALE

The SMJFL recently asked clubs to nominate players for a representative team to play against Yarra JFL later this year. Training times and other details will be communicated via this website.

Please note the team eventually picked will be a truly REPRESENTATIVE team, and every club who nominates players will have a minimum of one of them selected in the final team. However, once this minimum requirement is met, we will then pick the best players remaining to round out the team, with no further requirements of even representation of clubs. We may also look outside of the nominated players if we have a requirement for a position which is not met with the nominated group.

TRAINING

Squad training will be at Moorleigh Reserve at 90-92 Bignell Rd, Moorabbin, 3189 on Tuesday nights.

We realise some boys may have other commitments on some of the training nights, if you have not already done so please send Team Manager David Zivin an email with dates you are unavailable. Likewise, if you are injured and can’t attend a session please email or text David to let him know.

We look forward to seeing you at training.

Please note: a trainer will be in attendance, and can strap injuries, but you must provide your own strapping tape if you know in advance you will be requiring this.

TEAM MANAGER:

Our Team Manager David Zivin will be your first point of contact for most “team” related issues, ring or email David if you are going to be late to training, or have another issue you need clarified. Mobile: 0407 529 682  email: zivins@hotmail.com

Please bear in mind that our coaches and team manager do this not for money, but because they love “giving back” to the game. Please respect the time and effort they put into the program and free free to offer your help on training nights with setting up, packing away filling water bottles etc.

Please ensure you offer our coaches the utmost respect at all times, and strive to always be a representative of whom your club and the league can be proud of.

GAME DAY REQUIREMENT

For those boys selected in the final team we would ask that on match day you turn up to the game dressed in a pair of dark grey pants (not jeans) and black shoes with your SMJFL hoodie. Most of the boys will already have these as most schools have appropriate pants/shoes, and this will mean the team will turn up to the ground looking like a TEAM.

Players who are selected in the final team will be required to pay a $50 fee to cover the match day uniform which will be supplied, including shorts, socks, playing jumper and hoodie. Given the boys will be receiving 5 weeks of training from well credentialed coaches, and their uniform items, we consider this exceptional value.

 

 

Finally – make sure you know the words to the team song!

To the tune of ♪♫ When the Saints Go Marching In ♫♪

Oh when the Stars,
Go marching in,
Oh when the Stars go marching in,
Oh how I want to be with South Metro,
When the Stars go marching in.
Oh when the Stars (oh when the Stars),
Go marching in (go marching in),
Oh when the Stars go marching in,
Oh how I want to be with South Metro,
When the Stars go marching in.

 

Map of Moorleigh Reserve.

If using a GPS device seach for “Moorabbin Cricket Club” which will locate the oval. Moorleigh is located on Bignell Road, East Bentleigh, just up the road from Centenary Park (St Peters FC) which many of you will know. It is also the venue for our umpire training sessions. You won’t see the oval from the road – it’s at the end of a long driveway next to the East Bentleigh Primary School as shown below.
