Grading Days update – Revised 13/02/2019

Grading for Under 8 teams and above will commence this Sunday, and continue over the next week and a half. We strongly encourage you to attend to help us place your child in an appropriate team.

Please ensure you arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time, and check in at our registration tent.

Don’t forget to apply plenty of sunscreen, bring a hat if needed, lots of water and please no football boots to be worn.

To ensure all players have the chance to show off their football skills, we kindly request that all parents stay outside the oval fence during grading.

Please note that Under 6 and Under 7 teams are not graded. We will do our best to place children with friends where possible.

T3’s Weekly Training program returns in 2019!

It’s no secret that all the kids can’t wait for the soccer season to start again. As a development partner of Berowra FC T3 Australia are excited to play a role in providing opportunities for players of all abilities and interests. T3 have developed a culture were children and parents can enjoy skill development outside the winter season. Learning at schools take place year long and we believe the same applies to the one of the most popular sports in Australia.

T3 have booked a great venue in Term 1 2019 at Warrina Street Oval to hold the 2019 Berowra Football Club Pre-Season. The program will encourage children U6-U12 to attend every Monday starting 4th of February, and develop crucial skills prior to season start. T3’s renown coaches will be on hand to fast-track individual skills to ensure players are not only ready for the season but super confident.

All programs will be kicking off during the second week of school . To secure your spot we ask parents to register promptly to avoid missing out! All details and registration form’s can be found via the link below.

We will also be having our club registration day at the clubhouse on Saturday 2nd February from 10am to 3pm if you need additional assistance.

Registration fees have increased this year, the significant increase is the new NSFA facilities levy. This levy will be used by the Association to step up and work with local councils to help provide better facilities like Synthetic pitches and improved lighting.

In recent years we have had upgraded lighting (funded by NSW State Government) and resurfacing at Berowra Oval so we will continue to work with the NSFA to ensure these funds will continue to be used towards projects that Berowra members will benefit from

2019 will also see our junior competition (U12-18) teams play in the new strip the seniors wore last year, we are expecting delivery of the new shorts in February and will advertise the shop open days soon

All the best for the upcoming season
