Senior Men’s Game – Round 2

This week’s senior games are at home – DVUSC HQ – Partington’s Flat. Pop down at 1pm to watch the Reserves and 3pm to watch the Seniors. The boys really would love your support. The canteen will be open and the clubrooms will be open just in case it’s icy cold and/or wet outside.

Junior Player Registration

Registration for junior players is always a two part process:

  1. Club Registration – This usually happens late in the year or early in the new season. This year like the past few years, we’ve used a trybooking form to collect registration information and also payment. All players currently training with teams should have completed this process earlier in the year.
  2. FFV Registration – This usually happens in March once we know exactly what teams we have playing. Registration with the FFV is completed through the playfootball website. All players must complete this process. Players in the older age groups are required to upload a photo – the FFV registration also generates the player ID card. No fees are payable.

Useful registration information:

Junior Fixtures

The FFV have released DRAFT fixtures for our junior teams. It’s important to remember that fixtures may be changed due to grading and team changes, so don’t go booking flights thinking you’ve got a bye one week – games can change especially early in the season. We expect the fixtures to be somewhat locked in after round 3 – SportsTG DVUSC webpage – Visit http://bit.ly/2uAjXTL

TeamSnap – Availability

By now everyone should be using TeamSnap. Team Managers and Coaches have been provided with training on how to use TeamSnap including how to enter fixtures etc.

As parents, you will be expected to use the availability feature to notify your coach if you are not available for a match/training etc. Rather than make parents choose their child’s availability for each and every session, we have defaulted the availability to GOING and it therefore your responsibility to change this to MAYBE or NO if necessary. There is also the ability to add a note as to the reason why.

Thank you uniform committee

Thank you to Linda Coutts and Cathy Tomkins for doing a wonderful job organising our uniforms for 2019. The new training/clash kits look fantastic.
