To all Under 5 to Under 7 team coaches: as the season is now a few weeks in and your SSF mini-roo kids are now getting the idea of game play, we now ask for all coaching to occur from the sidelines as per SSF rules.
The club allows coaching from the field in the first few weeks to help new players and teams, but this should now start to be managed from the sideline, especially U7 teams who have played at least one season already.
The game leader (ref) should be the only person on the field of play and can still assist and instruct both sets of teams during play.
If a committee member asks you to move off the field, please do so without any issue. Thank you.
