Training Attendance Sheet

I Comp Man Training Attendance
Please see the email below form the Association reminding us to continue with the
training registers and limiting numbers at the grounds.

As some have noted, the training registers can be completed on iCompman. If you
would prefer to use iCompan for your training register, please email me
confirming you have completed the training register each week in iCompman.
Please include your team in the confirmation mail. I won’t be checking to see
that it has been completed. Instructions attached. Please note, I don’t know
how to use it. Happy to continue to receive the paper training registers.

On another matter, as some of you experienced last Saturday, there were issues
with iCompman. They had two glitches, one at around 08:15am and at 10:00am.
In both cases it took about 10-20 minutes to restore the service. During these
periods the system was running very slow or was unavailable. We have been
advised that the issues have been resolved.

Dear Member Clubs,

The COVID-19 outbreak has clearly affected us all. 20 06 Ffa Circular Suspension Of Grassroots Football Activity

That said, and as I am sure you would all agree and appreciate, we all play our part in minimising its spread so as to bring it under control as soon as practically possible. Parallel to all government and community announcements about ‘social distancing’, good hygiene practices, football and indeed all sport has a role to play amongst our members and all involved in the game.

To this end, today our National Governing Body, Football Federation Australia (FFA) has released an updated Circular (Circular No 20-06), suspending all community football activities (i.e. below A-League and W-League), effective from 12:00am on 18 March 2020, until 14 April 2020.

For your information, I have attached a copy of Circular No 20-06 and this will be used by FFA on all of its social media platforms. Please make your members aware of this Circular.

What does this mean for our Association, our competitions/leagues and your clubs ?

Effective immediately, all games, training and other football activities must cease;

Where possible, unnecessary meetings and other gatherings should either cease or be minimised. I suggest that you look to alternative forms of meeting (teleconferences) or by utilising other forms of technology (e.g. Skype).

No competitions/leagues will commence at this stage, and any that have already started, will be suspended until 14 April 2020.

Any football activity which takes place during this period is not sanctioned by the Association nor Football NSW and, therefore, the Personal Accident insurance cover that is provided as part of a player’s registration may not apply

As you would appreciate, we are working with our state governing body, Football NSW, who is in turn constantly liaising with FFA and relevant government agencies, and everyone is committed to keeping you informed and up to date in these rapidly changing times.

I thank you for your patience, cooperation and assistance, and would respectfully request that you distribute this information through all your teams and club delegates as soon as practically possible.

Sincerely,

Kurt Johnson

Registration 2020

IMPORTANT: There is a HFI enforced Registration cut off to play Round 1. Please make sure you don t leave registration queries til the last minute or you may miss R1 . Late registrations are accepted after this date for Round 2 onwards.. dates will follow

Below are the steps to register for 2020. Please remember we now use 'Play Football' . The process is still quite straight forward.

PLEASE NOTE: You need to register in and pay accordingly for the age group you intend to play rather than your chronological age.
eg. If you turn 11 in 2019 but intend to play in U12, register as an U12 player, similarly players turning 7 in 2019 who wish to play in U8 should register as U8s.
This applies to all players in any age eg a 17 year old who wishes to play in seniors should register as PL/AAM/ or PYL as the case may be..

You can expect a long suspension for serious offences.
There is no excuse for violent conduct.

Kookaburra Track Ted Horwood Reserve

Dear Baulko Members,

I am writing to alert you to the fact that our Ted Horwood Reserve working party’s application for the NSW Government’s ‘My Community Project’ grant scheme has been shortlisted for the public vote in the Baulkham Hills electorate.

We have proposed a pathway and lighting upgrade to create an integrated walking track for the Ted Horwood Reserve precinct, which we’ve called the Kookaburra Track. This project will have the threefold benefit of activating and making the reserve more accessible to the general public, making the walking path more safe for sporting club members using it of a night time, and contributing to the health and wellbeing of local citizens

Only 1 or 2 of the 11 projects listed in the Baulkham Hills electorate will be successful in receiving funding; it relies solely on the public vote. For this reason, we’re asking you to consider spreading among your sporting club and other networks the opportunity to vote for our project. You must live in the electorate to vote for the project. Voting is open from July 15 – August 15 and is done through your Service NSW online account or in person at a Service NSW Centre.

Search for the Baulkham Hills electorate and familiarise yourself with the projects at this link https://mycommunityproject.service.nsw.gov.au/projects that’d be great!

And feel free to begin spreading the news in any ways you see fit – any vote we can get is one we don’t currently have!

How to Vote.

Firslty, FOLLOW THIS LINK to the Service NSW Portal


1. Select your electorate (Please Select Baulkham Hills)

From the My Community Project Homepage or the Browse projects page

2. Log in or create a MyServiceNSW Account

3. Verify your identity

You will need:

  • To live in NSW.
  • To be at least 16 years or over.
  • Your Medicare card, which will verify your name and age.
  • To tell us your NSW residential address so we can identify your electorate.

The verification process is carried out by Service NSW.

4. Shortlist your favourite projects

To shortlist your favourite projects:

  • Go to Browse projects.
  • Click on a project to read about it in detail.
  • We encourage you to vote for the Kookaburra Track project number 1. You can then choose your other preferences

5. Arrange your top 3 to 5 projects

When you have at least 3 projects in your shortlist:

  • Go to ‘My shortlist’.
  • Arrange between 3 and 5 of your favourite projects in order of preference.
  • Your preferred projects will be given points:
    • 1st preference – 10 points – Kookaburra Track
    • 2nd preference – 5 points – Your Choice
    • 3rd preference – 3 points – Your Choice

These were for serious offences, not double yellows.

Players are reminded that they need to become more disciplined in their behaviour and attitude to fellow players and more importantly match officials.

Please pass this on to all your team
