Senior Team Managers - Key Info


Team Registration and Payment
 

All players must be registered on ClubHub* prior to playing (the club recommend as soon as possible) as the club then needs to register the player in the national database to play with AFF before they can take the field.  Once the season starts, if a player isn't in your team catalogue in Comet, then they are not eligible to play.

*If you can't see your team list on ClubHub, please contact Tim Adams

Players are required to pay their fees before the season starts - there is an earlybird discount available until early March each season (check the key dates calendar for exact date each year).

A Team Fee is available upon application - you can read more about the Team Fee here!

Yellow card and red card fines along with any other fines earned by players will be placed on their ClubHub account and will need to be paid within 14 days of the charge being loaded.

 

Referee Development/Referee Exchange Program

The club is very keen to help develop referee's from our membership base - we realise that a referee's role in having an enjoyable football experience is crucial, so we encourage anyone who is interested in your team to contact our Referee Development Officer (Mike Clark) to find out more.

 

Training and Game Slots

The club carefully breaks down it's available resources to try and give everyone a fair chance - Game slots are carefully managed also by the club and while we can accommodate certain requests we will try and make sure access is delivered in a logical and fair way.

If you wish to make a special request for a game slot, including a night game* - please email Kelly Bolus

Please note Pre-Season requests for games and training slots are also to come to Kelly Bolus.

*Night games require consent from your opposition in writing (email is fine) to be sent to the club no less than 15 days prior to your fixture.

 

Match Day Management

As a Team Manager one of your key roles is to manage the team on matchday - we recommend a facebook or WhatsApp group setup so you can easily communicate with your team.  It's also crucial communication lines from the club to you as a team manager are clear as well - so please make sure you are a member of our Team Managers facebook group as we will communicate there at least once a week.

A new process was implemented in the 2019 season, where teamcards were no longer required and all data was completed online.  This will continue in 2020.  Results need to be loaded in the competition system no later than 8.00am on Monday following the match to avoid a fine from AFF.  Training can be provided to any managers unsure on the new process.

If you are scheduled to play at home (or away but listed as the home team) then you may be required to setup or take down nets - this will be confirmed on Friday evening on the Team Managers page on Facebook.

Away Strips - Teams will be assigned an Away Strip each this season.

 

Thanks for your time guys - we will update this page from time to time in the season.
