PSFC Volunteer Info Session 23/8/17

Port Saints FC is run by a small number of hard working volunteers. The committee has decided to host a volunteer info session next Wednesday night (Wed 23 Sep 2017) to provide information on what is involved in running our club, and how you can get involved. The session will be held in the upstairs function room at Town Green Inn, starting at 7:30pm.
It is expected that every team arranges to have at least one representative at the meeting, who can pass the info on to their respective team.
This info session, and an increase in the number of volunteers, is critical in ensuring the club can continue to provide the opportunity for so many of our community to play football (soccer). Please indicate you are coming by accepting the PSFC Volunteer Info Evening event on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Portsaintsfootballclub/)
We thank you for your ongoing support of Port Saints FC, and look forward to seeing a good turnout on Wednesday night.
Yours in football, Port Saints FC.

Referee recognition weekend 28-30 July 2017

The Newcastle Permanent Referee Recognition Weekend is an initiative being conducted in 2017 by Northern NSW Football across all Member Zones and Clubs to publicly recognise, show our appreciation and say thank you to all of our referees and match officials.

All Football matches should begin and conclude with both teams shaking hands with all appointed match officials and the opposing team.

Officiating football matches at any level can be a difficult, stressful, intimidating and an often thankless job.
Referee Recognition Weekend gives the football community the chance to show our referees and match officials that they are a valued member of the football family and are appreciated by players, coaches and supporters alike.
2017 Referee Recognition Weekend activities will be held at all matches that take place on Friday 28th, Saturday the 29th & Sunday 30th July 2017.
Any club that is hosting a match sanctioned by Northern NSW Football on these dates including all junior, senior and representative fixtures are requested to embrace the event and take part in the day by showing their thanks and appreciation to all match officials appointed to matches at their club on the day.

Thank you for supporting this important initiative to recognise our invaluable referees and game officials.

Help needed

Port Saints FC needs your help. We have over 500 registered players, 350 of those are juniors (giving roughly 700 parents). That means there are a potential 850 people that could volunteer to help run the club. Yet we have 7 people on the committee!

Please step up and help run the club that you or your children benefit from. We have monthly committee meetings with our small but friendly committee, and if we could find another dozen or so people the work load would be easy to manage. You’d be surprised what skills we could find a great use for on the committee.

Please send your details to president@portsaints.com.au if you think you could help or you’d like more info.

Thank you

Football Mid North Coast are running a free ALDI MiniRoos Coaching Certificate in Port Macquarie (Wayne Richards Oval, Koala Street Port Macquarie), 21 Jun 2017 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

This course is for the “Discovery phase” – For coaches training 5-9 year old players. The course is fully practical and encourages the coach to develop practices that are based on FUN. The emphasis is on natural development i.e. learning by PLAYING football. No coaching but organising FUN football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game. Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.
