Parents

GUIDELINES FOR PARENTS

  • Good behaviour is expected from all Jets players, coaches, parents, and supporters at games and Club events
  • Please support the Jets program and become active in the Club
  • Support the whole team, not just your child(ren) and acknowledge good play from all players, including opposition teams
  • Respect the match officials. Young referees are part of the Willetton development program, and many of them are Jets players
  • Allow the Coach to do their job to avoid confusion in the players's minds (i.e. Don't call out instructions to players). Remember coaches are learning too! If you would like to coach please contact the Coaching Coordinator
  • Complaints should be discussed with the Teams & Coaching Coordinator
  • Players should arrive at games and training at least 5 minutes prior to commencement. Every minute late incurs a score penalty against the team unable to commence play

Key Positions

    • Coaches
      • Many of our coaches have National Accreditation at Levels 1 and 2
      • All Jets coaches are encouraged and supported financially by the Club to undertake accreditation and attend coaching development programs
      • Interested in coaching? Contact the Coaches Coordinator

 

  • Parent Volunteer
    • Each team requires a Parent Volunteer, although all parents are expected to contribute to the smooth running of the team. This is not an onerous job, and involves checking the score sheet, producing a scoring roster, and looking after (or delegating) the collection and washing of playing tops. 

Inability to Play or Train

  • Please notify the coach as early as possible when a player is unable to attend training or a game
  • Coaches and Parent Volunteers are jointly responsible to ensure the team is present and ready to play at the fixtured time

General Information

  • Notification regarding the Annual General Meeting will be sent to all members. All committee positions become available, and all parents are encouraged to attend and support the people who are working to run your club
  • Trophy presentation function is held around October each year. All players receive a trophy, and game milestone awards are presented. 
  • Registration is carried out on-line through this web site. The appropriate form will be accessible as required. Prompt payment is appreciated and will ensure that your player(s) are placed on a team.

Sponsors Needed!

  • Our club is always seeking donations and sponsors to keep fees down. If you can help, please contact the President or any member of the Committee
