INCLEMENT WEATHER – The grounds are owned by Gold Coast City Council and they operate a website to advise of any ground closures at http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/mobile/thegoldcoast/sports-field-closures-26888.html and our ground is known as Musgrave Ave. As this information is updated at 8.30am and 3pm on business days (if there are any changes) it is unable to be updated after business hours or over weekend, please contact your club if weather conditions alter during this time, as they will determine playing and/or training conditions.
Each player is expected to attend training. Please ensure you inform your Coach or Team Manager if your child is unable to attend training. Our Coaches are volunteers, they put a lot of time and effort into planning training sessions. If players are continually missing training, it impacts greatly on the team session and on their understanding of the play on game day.
While your child is at training, where possible, you must remain at the Club. If you are unable to stay during their training, please ensure your team manager or coach are aware in case of emergency. Training is not a babysitting service. The coaches are here to coach – inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated and it is not the coach’s responsibility to discipline your child. All children are to be respectful to their Coach.
Please refrain from coaching your children individually at home. The players are being taught to play as a team, with each player learning roles their team-mates will come to rely on. A player who abandons his team-mates to do something his parents have coached him to do, is letting down his team, his coaches and himself. At best he may open up the door for an opponent to win the game, at worst he may cause himself or a team-mate to be injured.
Parents are as important to the success of the team as the players. Please communicate with your coach and keep them informed about problems that may be going on with your child such as illness or emotional trauma.
