U6 and Game Leaders

Len Catalano and Kevin Meacock, will be looking after the U6 teams on training nights. They will be assisted by the game leaders, who will be taking care of the team on game days. We are very fortunate to have the services of Kevin who is our Senior Men's Coach but also a widely respected youth development Coach.

On arrival on a Monday training night, players will split into their allocated teams and then split into two groups, one with Kevin and one with Len.  The following week they will rotate. The sessions will be split into warm up, where we will use a ball and co-ordination using ladders. In the main section of the session we will touch on one of the four core skills.

  1. Striking the ball: this includes all forms of striking the ball such as short/long passing, shooting and crossing
  2. First touch: controlling the ball with all allowed body parts
  3. 1v1: all moves, feints and accelerations to get past and away from an opponent
  4. Running with the ball: at speed (with a lot of space) or 'dribbling' (in tight areas), this includes techniques for protecting the ball and changing direction.

The final part of the session will see teams play games against each other in preparation for their Saturday games. Players and game leaders will be introduced to the "diamond shape" which is taught to create space. OTHER THAN INTRODUCING THE DIAMOND FORMATION THERE IS NO OTHER COACHING OR INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE SIDELINE DURING WEEKEND GAMES. We want the kids to play, play, play.

We will removing from the vocabulary "big kick", "get rid of it", "pass it to." and replaced with "well done", "great try", "awesome effort" and " great pass"

So, as you can see Tigers have put in place a plan moving forward to give your child the ability to learn the basics and get a love of playing the beautiful game BUT we need your help. I hope this helps you understand the role of game leader. This shouldn't be a daunting task and we are here to support you every step of the way, but we cannot be successful without your support.

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 (as and if required by law), 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.

Canteen / BBQ Duties

Each team will be responsible to complete canteen and BBQ duties during their scheduled home games at Esher Street. A roster will be provided before the start of the season and updated regularly. The manager of your team will organise when parents will staff the canteen or BBQ.

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 date TBA.

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 if you can help.

Code of Conduct

Our club requires all members follow FFA's Code of Conducts. Details of these codes can be clicking on the links below: 

§  Code of Conduct for Players

§   Code of Conduct for Parents and Spectators

§   Code of Conduct for Coaches and Managers

Wet Weather Information


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. 


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
