President.s Note - Fundraising
Firstly I would like to thank once again all those who donated to the Mothers Day
Raffle, the Berry Family, Yem Family, Mifsud Family, Kirby Family and CBM
Organic. I would also like to thank the 3 Junior Coordinators and Club Secretary,
Yvette, Amanda, Anthea and Carolyne for putting the raffle together, which is
beyond their normal club duties. And I must thank all those who bought tickets.
Though it was a last minute thought (due everyone.s busy schedules), it was put
together very quickly and raised the club some much needed funds. With the funds
we are looking at purchasing pop-up goals for training purposes.
The Major Raffle is being organised as we speak, and we will be distributing tickets
soon. The funds raised from this will go towards the new shade structure over the
concrete seating area that should be in place by the end of June. The cost of the
structure is in excess of $50,000. We have a grant for $30,000 and the rest will be
from club fundraising activities.
We are also recycling old car batteries, if you have one lying around please bring it
down, you can give it to myself or Rob Kirby or just leave it near the equipment shed
near the public toilets.
I have noted on few occasions, that some members have commented that our club
fees are already at a premium and why should we now also contribute to fundraising?
But just like you have bills at home so do we at the club. There has been a dramatic
increase in electricity, water and insurance costs, (you would have noticed this in
your own household bills), and we do not get any sort of compensation for being a
non-profit organisation. It does cost a lot to run a club like ours. Our last quarterly
electricity, water and sewerage bill was in excess of $10,000.
We would not be able to get by without further fundraising and the generosity of
sponsors. Each year we look at what we can improve around the grounds for your
Please give generously when you can.
Yours in Football

PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT
As Head Coach of a Premier League team my duties and responsibilities are many and varied. Naturally the senior team isthe club.s flagship team and I direct a lot of my energy toward that, after all that is the team that all juniors at the club
should be aspiring to play in. That does not mean that my entire focus is on the first team, because as first team coach I
need to ensure that there is a steady supply of talent coming through the ranks at the club.
Regardless of whether one is playing in the Taringa Rovers Prep programme, a small sided football team, in the
competitive junior ranks or in a youth team, I personally like to keep a very keen eye on all players and track their
development. I do this by attending matches and training sessions personally, and/or through communication with the three
club Directors of Coaching (D.O.C.s).
Rob Kirby is Director of Coaching for the U6.s and U7.s, David Allen for U8.s to U10.s and John Pedley the U11 to U16
competitive junior age group.
I personally oversee the club.s youth Academy which is proudly sponsored by Hastie Services and Jono Stevenson
oversees the junior Academy proudly sponsored by Pearson Automotive. Rob Kirby oversees not only the grounds at the
club, but also coaches male and female teams - not to mention one of the club.s BJL teams.
I am very proud to report that Taringa Rovers is very well placed in terms of forward planning that will see the club
through to the next decade. Even more pleasing is the commencement of the prep football programme for players in the 3-5
year age group which I am personally running and enjoying immensely.
Every month in this newsletter I will try and highlight areas where players, coaches and parents can contribute to the club
player development plan. This month I will discuss an area that is specific to the 6-10 year age groups.
Often I hear parents telling a coach, .Oh my son plays as a striker., or .My daughter is definitely a left back.. More often
than not kids want to score goals and they all want to be strikers. The advice for this month on this topic is:
Encourage kids to play in a number of positions
1. They will better understand the challenges of each position
2. They will develop a much better understanding of the game
3. They will experience a variety of skills (Become cross trained)
4. They will understand the different work rates required for each position.
Players in this age group (6-10) should first and foremost enjoy playing the game. Once they go into the next age group
(11-16), coaches will identify players. strengths and weaknesses and will then direct them to positions that they are best
Next time I will discuss how best to select a football playing system for your teams.

For those unable to make the Game Leader coaching sessions, here are the guidelines to assist in the
smooth running of your games.
Game Leader Resource - Under 6 & 7 age group
The main role of the game leader is to keep the game moving fluently, limit stoppages and assist players with all match restarts.
Most importantly, they must make every effort to create an environment that ensures that all players have fun and
have maximum involvement. This person can be a club official, parent, older child or player, or beginning referee.
The basic laws and playing conditions:
„h Number of Players . 4 players per side (no goalkeeper)
„h Ball Size . Size 3
„h Field Size . 30m x 20m
„h Duration of Game . 2 x 15 minutes (half time break 5 minutes)„h Start of play & Re-start after a goal . Pass forward to a team mate from the middle of the half way line. All
players must be in their own half of the field of play. Opponents must be at least 5m away from the ball until it is
in play. The ball must touch a team mate before a goal can be scored.„h Ball crossing the touch line . There is no throw in. A player from the opposing team to the player that touched the
ball last before crossing the touch line will place the ball on the touch line and pass or dribble the ball into play.
Opponents must be at least 5m away from the ball until it is in play. The ball must touch a team mate before a
goal can be scored.„h Ball crossing the goal line . There is no corner kick. Regardless of which team touched the ball last, a player
from the team whose goal line the ball has crossed will place the ball anywhere along the goal line and pass or
dribble the ball into play. Opponents must retreat to the half way line and can move once the ball is in play. The
ball must touch a team mate before a goal can be scored.
„h Offside . No offside.„h Fouls and misconduct . Indirect free kicks are awarded for all acts of handball or fouls and misconduct.
Opponents must be at least 5m away from the ball when the indirect free kick is taken. (An indirect free kick is
where a goal can be scored only if the ball subsequently touches another player before it enters the goal).
The Game Leader should:
„h Encourage all children to have fun and different children to take re-starts.
„h Ensure the correct number of players are on the field.
„h Discourage players from permanently over-guarding the goal.
„h Use a .Ready, Set, Go. prompt to encourage quick decisions when restarting play.
„h Encourage children to dribble or pass the ball into play from all re-starts rather than a big kick.
„h Ensure opposing team is back to the half way line, for all goal line restarts.„h Ensure team officials and parents create a safe, enjoyable and positive playing environment for the children and
do not emphasis winning or losing.
„h Encourage children to be involved in all aspects of the game, attacking and defending.„h Remember most acts of handball or fouls and misconduct at this level are caused by a lack of coordination, with
no intent. If you decide a deliberate or serious act of handball or foul and misconduct has occurred, explain to the
child they have done the wrong thing and that they should not do this again.
„h Let the game flow and give instruction to all players on the run where you can.
„h Praise and encourage both teams.
„h Be enthusiastic, consistent and approachable.„h Most Importantly - Remember the children are learning the game . be flexible and patient.
One thing not mentioned here is the .tactic. of leaving one player to .guard. the goal. This should be discouraged as the
aim is to have the players involved all of the time when on the field. Remember the score is not important.

Below is a notice from the Football Brisbane Referees' Administrator
Clubs need to remind their coaching and playing staff about the wearing of undershirts/shorts under match uniforms. In
line with instructions from the National Director of Referees and as is clearly outlined in Law 4, if any player is wearing aVISIBLE undershirt, it must be the same colour as the predominant colour of the jersey sleeve, if they arewearing VISIBLE undershorts, the colour must also be the same as the predominant colour of the shorts.
Any previous discretion offered by referees will no longer be the case. In simple terms if the shirt is white, the undershirtsleeve is white. If the shorts are black, the undershorts are black. It should also be noted that players MAY NOT wear full
length undershorts on their legs whether they are the same colour as the shorts or not.
Please ensure that all appropriate personnel are aware of this instruction to avoid unnecessary debates before or during
Law 4 from the FIFA Laws of the Game states:
The basic compulsory equipment of a player comprises the following separate items:. A jersey or shirt with sleeves . if undergarments are worn, the colour of the sleeve must be the same main colour as
the sleeve of the jersey or shirt.
. Shorts . if undershorts are worn, they must be of the same main colour as the shorts
Please ensure that all your team officials and players are aware of this to avoid any unpleasant situations.
Referees will be enforcing this from the commencement of fixtures.
There have been a few enquiries regarding the attendance of carnivals at other clubs; the main concern is to ensure the
carnival is sanctioned by Football Brisbane (FB). Sanctioned carnivals can be checked on the FB website. If you are still
unsure if they have been sanctioned please contact your age coordinator and they will check with FB.The club believes it is a team.s personal choice if they wish to participate in carnivals. For teams that have academy players, a player.s involvement in carnivals, as part of the Academy Squad, is expected to take priority.
The only requirement, other than being sanctioned, is to inform the club of your attendance and to abide by the club.s code
of conduct and the carnival rules.
Further details can be found at www.footballbrisbane.com.au
SAFETY ISSUESPlease use common sense regarding your viewing
distance from the sidelines at these games.„h No players who are not on the field are to be sitting on the sidelines whilst a game is in progress. Please have
them back a safe distance.„h There is an Ambulance Entry near Field 5. It is clearly painted. Please do not park across or in this driveway. It is
the only access to the fields for emergency vehicles. It has been obstructed a minimum of four times in the last
two weeks.„h If you see anything which you think is in need of repair, please let your team manager know. They can then
inform the relevant committee member.
ON THEWEEKEND„h The only people to be kicking footballs on Field 1 are the U6, U7s and the Squirts, definitely no parents or other
siblings. This is to help in the reduction of unnecessary wear and tear. If your team is playing on the far side of
Field 1, please walk around the outside of the field to your game, not across the middle of the field and definitely
no prams or dogs to be taken across the field.„h Please pick up all rubbish and place in bins. This is something which should also be done when you visit another
club as well.
„h When playing U10 games, please do not sit in the goalmouth of Field 2 at the northern end of the ground„h If you are playing on Fields 2, 3 or 4 and park on the dressing room side of the grounds, please walk around the
outside of the fence or along the top of the retaining wall to get to your game.
DURING THEWEEK„h Please remember that the only people on Field 1at trainings are the players and the coach/manager. Definitely no
parents, siblings, dogs, chairs, prams etc„h Anyone who removes goals from the cricket net to use at training is to ensure they are returned to the cricket net
after training, these will be available again from June 7.„h The goalmouths on Fields 2 & 5 are cordoned off to reduce the wear of the grass. Please do not remove the
barriers and deter anyone you may see doing so.REMEMBER, AS THE GROUNDS BEGIN TO DETERIORATE, ASK YOURSELF .DID I HAVE ANYTHING TO
DO WITH THAT. AND WHAT COULD BE DONE TO REDUCE IT.
