Dunedin Technical Junior Football welcomes existing and new members and their families to the 2018 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 2018:

Subs

Subs for the 2018 season are:

5 years and under First Kicks – $50.00

New club logo

Over the past two years the Committee has been working on a new logo for the club.  You have likely heard about this already or participated in the survey.  The new logo was approved at the AGM in November and will be rolled out this season.  This is a great initiative by members of the club who have worked hard to produce a logo that reflects the values and history of the club.  If you would like to read the story behind the logo please follow this link to our website: 

All competitive grades (11th to Youth) will purchase a new playing top, which includes the new club logo when they register online for the 2018 season.  The cost of the top, $45.00 has been included in the Subs for the 2018 year.

Tech hoodies are available as an optional purchase when your register online as well.

All players must purchase boots, shin guards, Maroon socks and white shorts.  These can be purchased via your MyComet login, or at Athletes Foot in the Meridian Mall.

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).
