With skin tops they need to be blue if wearing the blue kit and could be blue or black if wearing blue and black kit.  There is a rule that each player in the team must be wearing the same colour though.
  • All players are required to wear football (soccer) boots and shin pads for all games and all training sessions. This is to protect the player, and to ensure we comply with insurance requirements.

New Working with Children Policy

  • Individuals who work or volunteer with children (under 18) must hold a WWCC Number and provide their WWCC Number to their club. This is a compulsory legislative requirement. Refer to the WWCC details on our policy page.
  • It is a requirement of the club that all coaches and volunteers complete their working with children check and provide the WWCC number to the club prior to the club providing the coaching kit to the coach. This is to look after the safety of our children and failure to comply will be seen as a concern.

Ground Officials

  • This year the coaching kit bags will contain a Ground Officials Vest. This vest shall be worn by one of the parents from our team  when we are the home team. This is a requirement of Football Mid North Coast and Northern NSW Football. More detail will be included with the coaching kit bag.
