Training for March and beyond
Training for March
There will be no training next week (the week of 27th Feb). Starting from Monday 6th March, due to fields 1,2 and 3 closed to all football activity till the 1st April due to council oversewing, the whole club will train on Fields 4 and 5 as we did last season. This means particular grades will be allocated a night and time slot for the month of March. Please adhere to the time table. The timetable will be made available on the BHFC website by Tuesday 28th February. Your co-operation in this matter will be greatly appreciated and expected.
Training for April and Beyond
On March 1 (or later) coaches/managers should email firstname.lastname@example.org with your desired training night and time for April and beyond. Note:
- Please ensure that only one email is sent per team.
- Do not send emails before March 1st. They will simply be ignored. The reason for this is to give late-created teams just as much chance as anyone else to get their preferred training day/time.
Gear allocation to teams
Gear will be only allocated to team managers/coaches once a list of registered paid players [and copies of Sporting club membership cards for seniors] are emailed to Cath Hughes at email@example.com. Gear will not be issued to:
- players who are not registered,
- senior players who do not have a membership with the Baulkham Hills Sports Club.

Gradings & Safety
* Field 1 is out of bounds every Thursday for next 3 weeks between 5pm - 7pm as it is being used for cricket training. U14 grading has been moved to field 4.
* Reminder to all players and teams: The cricket club has the lease of fields 1 - 3. This means they have priority use of the grounds. Please keep right away from them. If football grading has moved to half a field to accommodate cricket, parents please keep siblings out of the 'no go buffer zone' between football grading and cricket training.
It is important also not to walk through a cricket training sessions on the way to grading. Out of courtesy (and safety), please walk around the field rather than through the centre. Cricketers may need to use the nets as well as the centre pitch
This will also apply to the netball courts when netball resumes training in a week or so. Please keep siblings on bikes and scooters away from any other sporting division's training. Thankyou
* Parents: please don't drop your children off in the driveway next to field 1. The children have been entering field 1 right in front of the cricket nets, and it is very dangerous to walk near the nets while cricketers are training. Please use the pedestrian entry gate on Park Rd to enter field 1.

New Hills Football Association for 2017 Season
ANNOUNCEMENT TO ALL BAULKHAM HILLS FC MEMBERS
On Friday 14 October 2016, Football NSW (FNSW) announced the founding members of a new Hills based association, known as Hills Football Incorporated.
Our club, Baulkham Hills Football Club (BHFC) is a founding member
The new association will consist of all the clubs that played in this year’s Sydney Hills Football Association (SHFA) as well as the addition of the following seven clubs:
- Glenhaven Football Club
- Hills Spirit FC
- Hills United Football Club
- Kellyville Soccer Club
- Kenthurst & District Football Club
- Rouse Hill Rams
- Winston Hills Football Club
The new association will be fully sanctioned by FNSW, meaning clubs can play in State competitions such as Champion of Champions and State Cup. Referees, coaching and other services will be part of the Football NSW set up.
As noted in the email, a Board to run the Association will be elected at the AGM on 1 December. The process is underway to receive nominations for directors and over the period up to the AGM there will be further meetings to set up the new association. After the AGM, the newly elected Board will take over running Hills Football Inc.
BHFC would like to thank the Executive of SHFA and FNSW for working together towards making the new Hills-based competition a reality. A lot of time and effort has also been put in by the clubs during the negotiations to help us reach this successful outcome.
A bigger and better competition awaits us all in 2017.
If you would like to hear more about the new association, then please come along to our club's Annual General Meeting. 7:30 pm, Monday 31st October at the Baulkham Hills Sporting Club.
