Click on the link above for details regarding girls team celebration.
Sorry for the late notice but we have decided to have a training session on Sunday at 11.30 (new time) on the back oval. I raised the idea with the team last week and the majority of the girls were keen to have a run. I understand some would have made plans with the bye scheduled, but if the girls can make it on Sunday it would be great. We need to build on such a strong performance last week and I just think I need to grab every opportunity to put work into the girls for the simple reason that they are embracing their footy and getting better and better every week! Hopefully we have 5 weeks until we play in the grand final which allows us the opportunity to continue to get better and better, but remember the only way to get better is through hard work. This weeks training was great with 5 girls attending training on Tuesday and 4 on Thursday, along with great numbers on Wednesday night. To be honest our group have consistently had the best numbers at training of all the teams at Northcote week after week, which is a credit to the entire squad (it may be because they just love a chat with their mates, but when its time to get down to business they get the job done).
If you can get their early to support Faydia and the under 12 team who have yet to win a game it would also be appreciated. They are mainly made up of bottom age girls and have found it tough this season but have never given up and continue to improve every week, they deserve your support!
Annual Club Survey
Our annual club survey will be sent out to Members early next week – this year online for the first time.
Your responses will help us determine what we are doing well and areas where we need to improve, so please take a few minutes to complete before Sunday 30 July.
Congratulations to Joseph Licastro, Leo Chiappini & Hunter Short from Under 12 Blue, and Xavier Smith from Under 11 Blue who are all playing their 50th games this week.
Christian Castrucci from Under 12 Blue is also celebrating his 50th game, having played it last week.

Thank you to those people who have volunteered to help drive the Free Kick bus over the next few weeks. We’re still looking for a few more parents who can help with transporting kids to and from training on any one Tuesday or Wednesday night – we need a driver and a supervisor for each minibus trip. A current drivers licence and Working with Children Check are required (an endorsed licence is not needed). Volunteers would need to be in Fitzroy for the first pick up at 4.45 on the day. If there is a day when you can help out please let me know.
Our annual club survey will be sent out to Members early next week – this year for the first time it will be an online survey.

An extra big thank you to Kylie Turton, our First Aid Coordinator, for her efforts this year in ensuring our Trainers are all appropriately trained and equipped to provide first aid for our players.
Unfortunately for us Kylie and her family are moving to Canberra, so we will need to find a replacement. Thanks again Kylie for everything you’ve done!
A big thank you to Catherine Hart who has been working to update our club memorabilia display.
She needs someone with a long ladder and a few hours to spare to give her a hand to finish putting the photos and flags up on the walls.
If you meet these criteria please email email@example.com who will pass on Catherine’s details.
Team photos are now available and most have been handed out at training. A few players have been given the team photo for the wrong team.
If there are mistakes with your photo please contact Bernadette Curry on firstname.lastname@example.org but be quick – she will be away for the holidays from Monday.
We’re still looking for parents who can help with transporting kids from the Free Kick Program to and from training on any one Tuesday or Wednesday night during the first month of next term.
We need a driver and a supervisor for each minibus trip. A current drivers licence and Working with Children Check are required (an endorsed licence is not needed). Volunteers would need to be in Fitzroy for the first pick up at 4.45 on the day. Let email@example.com know if there is a day when you can help out.
We are seeking feedback from members on the NJFC Child Safe Policy. We have developed this policy as part of our implementation of the Victorian Government Child Safe Standards, to help ensure children are protected from all forms of abuse..
Please forward any comments about the policy to Ann-Maree (firstname.lastname@example.org). The policy is attached for your convenience.

Have a read of the Match Reports from some of our Coaches for Round 9.
All players should have received a bag as part of their registration this year. If you have not collected yours yet please stop by the storeroom on match day or at training to pick it up.
New NJFC Hoodies ($50 kids, $60 adult) and socks ($10) are available for purchase.
Congratulations to Oliver Williams and Oliver Manterfield from Under 14; the latest players to reach 50 games.
Looking forward to seeing the boys run through their banner together!
Our Free Kick Program allows kids who do not otherwise have the opportunity to play community sport the chance to play footy at our club. Many of our teams have Free Kick players and we are grateful to the Team Managers, Coaches and parents who help them each week in getting ready for the game and instructing them in the finer points of AFL. In supporting the Free Kick program, we are seeking four pairs of parents who can help with transporting kids to and from training on any one Tuesday or Wednesday night during the first month of next term. We need a driver and a supervisor for each minibus trip. A current drivers licence and Working with Children Check are required (an endorsed licence is not needed). Volunteers would need to be in Fitzroy for the first pick up at 4.45 on the day. Let me know if there is a day when you can help out.
As we head towards the end of the season we turn our minds towards 2018. Our new committee will be elected at the AGM in October, but we will need other key roles filled as well in order to continue to build the club. Treasurer, Property Manager and Grounds Manager are three of the roles that will need filling – more information on these roles can be found below. We are also seeking a parent with marketing or public relations experience to help on a short-term project. If you can assist with any of these positions please let me know.
The Treasurer is the chief financial management officer of the Club. Desirable qualities include good organisational skills, a level of financial expertise and awareness of the information required for annual reporting. Duties include preparation and monitoring of annual budgets, financial record keeping and preparation of annual financial statements. This role is largely administrative, so could be filled by someone whose work commitments prevent them from attending the club during the week.
The Property Manager is the key person responsible for ordering and sales of club merchandise, providing team gear and otherwise making sure all teams have enough training equipmentAdhering to the Victorian Child Safe Standards and related Club policies and procedures. This role ideally needs someone who can be at training and/or games on a fairly regular basis.
The Grounds Manager is responsible for ensuring the clubhouse and grounds are safely maintained, liaising with Darebin Council when repairs are required, and marking lines and otherwise preparing the ground before matches. This role should ideally be filled by someone with a bit of time to spare during the week and who doesn’t mind being up and about early on Sunday mornings.
Due to low numbers in both Under 13 teams it has unfortunately become apparent that the best option for the rest of the season is for the Under 13 teams to be amalgamated. We have had the opportunity to discuss this with many parents and most seem to agree that this is regrettable but the best option for the remainder of the season. The Gold team will play their final match this coming weekend, helped out by players from the Blue team which has a bye. Players from both teams will then become part of the Blue team, with Matt as Coach. We feel that this action will give the greatest number of players the chance to enjoy the remainder of the season, and we thank all Under 13 families for their understanding.
Under 10 Girls
We’re pleased to announce that we now have a second female head Coach! Nicole Carwyn will assume coaching our U10 Girls team, in place of Andrew Wallace who will gain some time for the variety of other activities he co-ordinates for our Club. Welcome Nicole and thanks Andrew for your efforts in getting the U10 Girls team up and running.

Thanks to Violeta Traicevski for co-ordinating a very successful cake stall Sunday 4th June, to help with the expenses of running the Free Kick Program. Thank you to everyone who donated home made goodies and/or assisted on the stall during the day. The generosity of our families meant that we raised $1219, which will help the kids in the Program continue their involvement in community sport.
If anyone is keen to be involved in other activities to support the club’s fundraising efforts please let me know.

Congratulations to Lochie Reynolds from U11 Gold who is celebrating his 50th game this week.
Great work to have reached this milestone halfway through Under 11s!
We are excited to have passed the milestone of 300 players registered for 2017, as new players continue to register to fill the gaps we still have in some teams.
We now have more than 50 female players, which is a terrific achievement in our first year of having all-girls teams.
We are still seeking players for U13, U12 and U12 Girls teams in particular – if you can think of anyone interested, registrations will be accepted up until 30 June.
This weekend we are running a cake stall to raise funds for our Free Kick program. This initiative has grown substantially in 2017, from 6 players last year to 30 players this year.

Most of you would be aware that we have qualified Trainers present at every match to ensure any injuries are treated quickly and appropriately. Head injuries are of particular concern and we have just reviewed our Concussion Policy to make sure we continue to observe best-practice management of concussion (link) . Any player who is concussed must seek advice from a registered medical practitioner, preferably with experience in managing sports concussion, and must not be allowed to return to training and playing without explicit medical clearance to train AND play.
NJFC has the top level of player insurance available, which covers emergency ambulance transport. We do recommend that each family has current ambulance membership to make certain that their player can be transported for serious but not life threatening injuries, such as broken or dislocated limbs. Our Trainers will act in the best interests of the player and call an ambulance if they believe it is warranted.

Thanks to photographers Nick and Colin, and special thanks to Bernadette Curry for organising and co-ordinating the team photos this week. All went very smoothly with most teams finishing their session ahead of schedule. Photos should be available for collection in a month or so.
U14 Girls have cause for a double celebration, with Sophie Goffin playing her 50th game last Sunday and
