WEDNESDAY NIGHT MUSTERS CANCELLED:

It is with regret that we are cancelling our Wednesday night musters scheduled for the rest of March.

In light of recent advice regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) and ‘non-essential’ public gatherings, we want to ensure all our players, coaches, volunteers and their families stay safe and well.

You will be aware that many sporting competitions throughout the country have been cancelled and postponed. New Zealand Football is in discussions today with the other major winter codes regarding a potential collective response.

New Zealand Football and the seven federations will meet on Wednesday morning to review all information available at this time and collectively agree an appropriate course of action for community football.

We will provide further information as soon as possible thereafter.

TEAM SELECTION DAYS                                                                                                                      

It’s that time of year again to select our teams for 2020!

We will have two team selection days on Sunday 8 March and Sunday 15 March.

These will be held either on the upper fields or the lower fields below the clubrooms. If on the lower fields, we will have some signage and people pointing you in the right direction.

Children will need to bring along a drink bottle, sun block, shin pads and suitable footwear (trainers probably okay as the ground is still quite hard).

1pm – 8th grade and U10 girls and U13 girls

2pm – 9th grade

3pm – 10th grade

4pm – 11th grade

Your child’s grade is the age they will be turning in 2020.

12th grade, U8 girls and U13 girls times TBC. Please keep an eye out on Facebook for an update.

If you have a child turning 13 this year who would like to play in a social team in the youth division please contact Kerry 021 2011210.

If you are unable to make either of the team selection days, please contact the club to register your interest: waipunafc@gmail.com

If you have yet to register for the season, get all the information you need to know here: https://waipunafc.co.nz/register-waipuna/

We’d love to hear from anyone who would like to coach a team this year, and we’re always on the lookout for people to join our committee, or take on a small job to help out. Many hands make light work! Contact us at waipunafc@gmail.com

 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT MUSTERS

As well as our team selection days starting next Sunday, we are going to have Wednesday night musters at Waipuna Park for 8th grade and above throughout March from 6pm-7.30pm.

For players keen to play in one of the Division 1 teams in their age grade, this will provide more opportunities for us to see you in action. If you don’t want to play in Division 1 it’s a great opportunity for some extra coaching and practice before the season gets under way! Brett Gander will also be offering goalkeeping sessions for any budding goalkeepers.

These nights are optional extras, so don’t worry it you can’t attend, but we’d love to see as many players there as possible, as well as parents and coaches. It’s also a great opportunity for us to get to know each other before the season gets under way.

Please let us know on either the muster or team selection days if your child would like to be considered for a Division 1 team. Coaches will select these teams based on both prior knowledge of the players and their performance at muster/team selection days.

For those not interested in being placed in a Division 1 team, we will attempt to place your child into teams based on friend groups and last year’s teams.

Bring on the 2020 season!
