Dunedin Technical AFC Junior Football

Dunedin Technical was formed in 1920 as King Edward Technical College Old Boys. Name changed to Dunedin Technical in 1980. We now are a big club with a huge number of junior teams for every age group. This year we have formed a Junior Committee which will be primarily responsible for the supporting the Junior Program with fundraising and social activities.

Registration update, almost there....

We have been working frantically to get our registration open, and have (hopefully) just completed the last piece of the puzzle. We should have conformation of this in the next day or so, which means after a bit of final testing, should be able to open registration very soon.

Thanks for your patience, and while we could have looked to open registrations earlier, we strongly believe that waiting ensures you a much smoother registration process, than had we not waited.

Introducing The Dunedin Technical Lioness's Skill Centre! This is a girls only Skill Centre to run Mondays nights at Tahuna Park 4pm to 5.15 pm from Mon 28th Feb - Mon 9th April. 6 sessions (not including Easter Monday). $60 for all 6 sessions or $15 per session. 9 Grade to 14 Grade.

Dunedin Technical Junior Football welcomes existing and new members and their families to the 2016 season. The club is looking forward to another exciting year, so on behalf of the club I would like to wish everyone the best of luck and hope you all have a very enjoyable season.

WHAT WILL MY CHILD NEED?

Your child must have shin pads (FIFA regulation), boots, maroon socks and white shorts. The club will provide a playing jersey.
A mouth guard is an optional piece of safety equipment parents/guardians may wish their child to use.

TEAM PLACEMENTS

Midgets to 10th Grade
Children aged 5+ will be placed into a team.
We will make every endeavour to put players into the same teams that they were in last year, but in the next age grade. Any vacancies will then be filled by players new to the club. We try to keep teams together throughout their time in the junior club and therefore we cannot swap teams around according to friendships. Remember how quickly children can change friends at this age, and anyway, this is a good chance to make new friends.

 

Grades 11th to Youth (Competitive Grades)
Depending on the number of players registering and to accommodate players having preferred playing positions, teams may be selected by the coaches or trials may need to be held.
There is also representative football available from this level onwards so for anyone aiming for higher honours the club will support you where possible to help you try to achieve your goals.

 

COACHES

We are always looking for coaches or assistant coaches. If anyone is interested please let us know as soon as possible as we still need coaches for some grades.
In house training is provided for anyone keen on pursuing this path.

 

FAIR PLAY

We are very concerned that our players learn the concept of ‘Fair play’. When you are on the sideline please support your team in a positive way. Both sides should be praised for both good play and fair play. Young players in particular, need to learn about winning and losing, but more importantly about playing for enjoyment. If everyone on the sideline sets a good example, players will learn to use this on the field.

 

PLAYER OF THE DAY AWARDS

Our club prides itself on support from the senior part of the club, therefore we hold our junior player of the day awards every Saturday at Culling Lounge about 5.15 in the presence of the senior club members where Club Certificates and possibly a light refreshment will be presented.

 

FEES

While we have made a rule that fees are to be paid at the time of registration we will still accept registration of your child without payment. However if we do not receive full payment within 7 days of registration your child’s name will be withdrawn. This may sound harsh but with a large number of players and limited teams we must be fair to everyone.
It is the Club’s intention that every child has the opportunity to play.
The Club will give every consideration to requests for the sub to be paid under an arrangement where immediate payment of the full sub creates hardship or inconvenience.

 

Our fees for 2016:

  • 5-8th Grade $55.00
  • 9th – Youth $85.00
  • Under 5 years old $20

All players must purchase boots, shin guards, socks and shorts.

Kickits – Skills course for 4 & 5 year olds $20 – Sundays at 11am at Culling Park. Happy for new people to attend.

Football South Fees

Football South has levied an additional $5 per player for 2014 season.
In view of the Club’s desire to have as many children playing football as possible the Club has decided not to pass this
cost on and will absorb the levy into the operating costs of the Club.
This situation will be reviewed each season.

 

PARENTAL SUPPORT

We ask that parents support any fundraising that we do. There will be fundraising throughout the season, in the way of chocolate wheels and raffles etc. Any donations for prizes would be greatly appreciated, so if you can help or know anyone that could, please let us know.

 

SPONSORSHIP

As most of you are aware, it takes a lot of money to keep our club running, so we are constantly looking for sponsorship. Every year we need to update equipment, pay FootballSouth player levies, and at the end of the season purchase trophies for teams etc. If you would like to sponsor us or you have any sponsorship or other fundraising ideas, please contact us (see below for contact details).
