Juniors (12-16yrs)

Introduction

In 2020, Julian Chan will again undertake the role of Football Director at TTFC.  Julian will supervise the development of coaches and players for this age group.  All coaches will be provided with the relevant coaching qualifications for this age group and ongoing support from the club.

 

Football Brisbane will provide referees for matches. In the event Football Brisbane are unable to allocate a referee the club will attempt to allocate a club referee.

The creation of teams in this age group will depend on the number of registrations received. It is the policy of the Club to attempt to provide an opportunity to play football for all players who are registered by the 1st February.


Should we have more than 15 players registered for any U12 to U16 team then we will run a grading session to select the teams. 

Grading Trials for the Under 12 age group have been set down by Football Brisbane for weekends of the 16th and 24th February 2019 to ensure teams are playing in the correct divisions.

U12 GAMES

U12 competition will be played in a 9v9 format on a smaller field.  It is believed that this format will encourage further development of the "4 key skills" of the game while allowing multiple opportunities for all players to demonstrate their skills.


U12 games are played in 2 x 25 minute halves.

U12s use a size 4 ball.

2019  Esher  St  Fields U10- 12

U13 to U16 GAMES

On game day the teams will consist of 14 players up to a maximum 16 players with 11 players (including the goalkeeper) on the field at any one time. 


Games times as below;

U13 play 2 x 30 minute halves. 

U14 play 2 x 35 minute halves

U15 play 2 x 40 minute halves

U16 play 2 x 45 minute halves


U13s use a size 4 football.

U14s and above play with a size 5 football.


Offside rules are played.

Games will be played against local teams as per FB draw. TTFC home games will be held at Esher Street.

Parent Duties

As a volunteer-based club, it is necessary for all families to get involved.  This includes parents taking their turn in the “fruit and jersey” rosters throughout the season.  Team managers will organise rosters for parents to bring fruit (eg watermelon, oranges) to the game, and to take the jerseys, as a full kit home to wash.  Junior players are not to take individual jerseys home – they are to stay as a kit in order to have them together and to avoid one jersey fading at a different rate to others.

Training sessions and games are not to be treated as free baby-sitting services.  Whilst all coaches have a blue card, and have taken on a role of coaching the children, players are the sole responsibility of the parent.  NO child is to be left in the care and supervision of a coach. In times of sudden wet weather cancellations mid-training, it is distressing for both coach and child when a parent is not present and is not able to be contacted immediately.  Many teams, via the manager, create a team contact list, in order for busy parents to car-pool or help with supervision.  This is up to the team and parents, and is to remain strictly within the team – no contact details are to be given without consent.

Parents, as with players and coaches, are required to adhere to the codes of conduct.

Team Communications

In 2015 Tarragindi Tigers launched "Team App" a free App to help our Club's Managers/Coaches manage their team but most of all to help our members keep all their Team/s and Club communications in the one place.

Managers and Coaches will see the fantastic features of this free App to make communicating with their team a breeze. Benefits include: calendar dates - training and game details, allowing players to indicate availability for games by using the RSVP feature, using the Draw and Ladder features to keep a tab on your team, using the Chat feature instead of texting the team or selected players, sharing photos among their team and more.  

The Committee would like to request each TT player/family join Team App to receive Club wide notifications e.g. wet weather field status, news, etc Team App is available on both Apple and Android platforms, even if you don't have a smartphone you can sign up via the webpage and receive email notifications.

Team Photos

Team photos will be taken in your teams training time in June 2020.

Community Club

TTFC is a community club run by volunteers. We require your support in a variety of ways so we can continue to keep kicking goals together. There are a number of ways in which you can help and every little bit counts – various volunteer roles including; team manager, team coach, canteen duty, BBQ duty, and working bees. The Committee meets once a month for a couple of hours and is always looking for anyone who would have an interest in the future development of the club. We are always looking for individuals who may have time to help organise activities at the club. Some of the currently vacant positions can be found here. If your interested in assisting with an occupied position please let us know we are sure they wouldn't mind some help.

Please contact the Chairman on chairman@tarraginditigers.com.au if you can help.

Wet Weather Information

TRAINING DAYS |

When there are rainy days, the committee analyses both Esher St 2 and HPSHS 3 to evaluate if there has been enough drainage, as well as player safety during training. 

TTFC asks for your patience on wet weather days up until 3:30-4:00pm when decisions will be decided. 

When fields are closed and training is cancelled, it is because of player safety and field longevity for game days and for training for the 2020 season. 

The first place to visit is the website, checking the field status side panel; social media (Facebook mainly, and Twitter) are the next places to check updates. 

The Club thanks all the players and parents during days like these with your patience. 


GAME DAYS | 

When games are at HOME, announcements on weekends should hopefully be announced in the mornings. 

When they are AWAY, it is up to the home club. 

Please check the following links below to check other clubs field status when playing AWAY
