Grading added to our Registration Day

Grading added to our Registration Day

2019 sees SBFC introduce grading for our teams from U8’s and up.

We have decided to introduce grading when we have more than one team playing in a grade. This will help us ensure we allocate teams to the appropriate division. Also very skilled players can be challenged in the higher grades. And those new to the sport, or playing more on a social level, can be graded accordingly.

Our Club coaches, Mafee Monje (who is our clubs C grade coach) and Adam Keremeleski, will be running the grading.

If your grade has only one team, we still invite you to attend the grading day, so we can give the team a run and chat to the Coach to discuss which division would be best for the team.

Please come along to Eric Mobbs Reserve this coming Sunday, 17th February from 12:30pm to 2pm. We will have the BBQ on so you can grab an easy lunch. We will also limited uniform items available for purchase (cash please).

Socks = $10 each

Shorts = $25 each

Hoodies = $45 each

Calling all keen pre-school soccer stars – SIX  WEEK LEARNING PROGRAM

Calling all keen pre-school soccer stars – SIX WEEK LEARNING PROGRAM



SBFC has an opportunity to run an ALDI Kick Off Program for the last 6 Weeks of our Winter Season (30 June 2018 to 4 August 2018).  The program is designed for children aged 4 to 6, as an introduction to the game before they sign up to an U6’s team for 2019.

  • Weekly 45 minute sessions that build skills through games and simple drills delivered in an engaging and inclusive environment.
  • Every player gets plenty of time on the ball and the prime aim of each session is for children to build fundamental motor skills.
  • Each child also receives an ALDI MiniRoos Participant Pack when they register – which includes a bag, ball, and a water bottle.
  • We have 10 vacancies for the program.
  • We will use the SBFC Kit (goals, balls etc) to support the program.

The cost is $50.00 for 6 weeks.  To be run on Saturday Mornings at 9:30am at Eric Mobbs (45 mins) starting Saturday 30th June 2018.

The program is supported by Football NSW, Hills Football, SBFC and ALDI.  Registrations can be complete by the following link, it will also be released on FaceBook as well.


Please contact us if you have any questions.

Notes:- Update from Club President, Stephen Emmas, on how our our club is standing at present.

Re-grading has been done by Hills Football and the draw is now out for the rest of the season, so games are scheduled up to 4 August. You can see the draw on the Hills Football website – http://www.hillsfootball.com.au/fixtures-tables-results/ or download My Game Guru and find your team.

Team Photos – scheduled for Saturday 28 July (to be confirmed by Brett). Photos will be taken at the home ground and a timetable will be pulled together. We have 7 home games that day, so 7 teams will have to travel back to Eric Mobbs for photos before or after their game.

Wanderers Training – constructive feedback was ascertained and has been passed on to Diego at the Wanderers. Adam, Club Coach, will also be sending an email to all parents to ask them to be more present at training to ensure they are supervising their child.

Presentation Day – at the end of the season we will hold a presentation day to celebrate the season and present the players with a participation trophy. We also present a winner of the Best & Fairest competition for each team. Managers don’t forget to keep tally during the season on the sheets you have been provided. Date – looking at 9th or 16th September.

Working With Children – can all coaches and managers ensure they have done this process and emailed their number with validity dates to sbfcfooty@gmail.com

Apply for a Working With Children check

Uniforms – all jerseys, socks and shorts are in stock. We have ordered Hoodies for the players. They will be available to purchase for $45 each. IMG_0502


BBQ – Brett has done a roster for the BBQ for the remainder of the season. Each team will be expected to man the BBQ three times during the season. A Committee member will also be present to assist and help with set up and pack up. It was suggested we add other items such as chips or lollies to sell. The BBQ has made a profit of $410 this year. It adds to our community atmosphere and creates a gathering point. We would like to run it as often as possible, but it does need to be a shared responsibility.

Chocolate Drive It was decided we would run this fundraiser again due to its success last year. We will ask every player to sell one box of chocolates (at $1 per bar) and therefore will order 120 boxes. Mel Younan happy to take delivery. Boxes will be distributed to Team Managers at training on a Thursday night, for the manager to pass on to each team player.

Post meeting action – Lolita has placed the order and delivery is expected by next week. Three type of boxes ordered. Ordered included some prizes that we can use as a raffle.

Movie Night – once again we are looking to hold a movie night in the last week of Term 2, at Event Cinema Castle Hill.  Possibly Tuesday 26th June for Incredibles 2.

Trivia Night – it was suggested we look at holding a trivia night for parents (NO KIDS) at the RSL Club. Adam, Brad and Lucas are going to look into this idea.

Other items:

  • suggested we upgrade our BBQ – possibly same as the new P&F one at school (see Nick Gooley to find out where they got it from)
  • U9 Tigers have requested the Club ask Hills Football for regrading from division Echidna (B’s) down to Kangaroos (C’s) – Steve will email Kurt.
  • TeamApp – suggested we look into extra features on this app as a better way to communicate with members of our Club (Wet Weather updates, etc).

Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day

I thought today was a good day to shout out to all the women and girls involved in the SBFC community. This year we have more girls registered than ever before and some wonderful coaches, managers and refs.

This is also a great opportunity to congratulate Sarah Lievano, who has been selected into the Hills Football Girls Rep team. Sarah will be playing rep games every 2nd Saturday of the season. Sarah’s mum Mafee has done a fantastic job to pull together our first ever female team for SBFC, playing U12 girls comp on a Sunday. This team is made up of Sarah and some of her rep mates, along with St Bernadette’s girls. Coached by Mafee and managed by Joanne Frketic. We look forward to watching you through the season.

And girls remember as you play, you are inspiring all the young girls at St Bernadettes to be brave and get involved in this male dominated sport. And what a role model we all have this year with Sam Kerr, 2018 Young Australian of the Year and 2017 AFC Women’s Player of the Year.
