We are playing Forest at 8:00pm. The venue is Melwood Oval, which is Melwood Ave, Forestville. PLEASE BE THERE NO LATER THAN 7:15PM – this will help in getting everyone into positions, allow for warm up, time to get weighed etc etc. It would be helpful for you to be there for the start of the 7pm game to get an idea how other teams play.
YOU WILL BE WEIGHED before you play. There is only a . 2 kg variance allowed for the scales to be wrong, so if you think you are pushing it – watch what you eat tomorrow! You can get weighed wearing absolutely nothing if it gets you to the right weight (apparently this is not uncommon? Weird…).
Games are 25 minute halves and have 5 minutes for half-time.
Some players may initially have to play out of position at this early stage. Your safety is first and foremost, however if you are asked to play out of position and you can assist, that will be appreciated.
For those new to the club, we will be handing out shorts and socks next Thursday night. So for the next 2 weeks, please wear (if you have them) blue shorts and socks.
Thanks again for making yourselves available – grab your mates and bring them on down for what i’m sure will be a fun night!
