Miniroos Course 2020
For any player, coach or parents who wishes to register for this Grassroots Course head straight to the course link attached to register now. You will need to know your current FFA number and email address linked to that number.
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..

GRADING TIMETABLE 2020
Grading times and places attached.
EVERYONE: Players must be registered to be eligible to participate in grading. Registration is only complete when payment in full is received.
SENIORS: Please make sure you attend grading so we know it is your intention to play/ form a team. Don't presume we know you intend to play. We're good- just not that good!
JUNIORS (U8 - U18): Please make sure you attend all 3 grading weeks. Each session is different, with each being used to form the basis of grading decisions.
FUNSKILLS (U6, U7): New players are required to attend one of these grading nights to bring in ID (originals only please), and collect/ buy uniforms. This needs to be done before the season commences (Wks 2 or 3 of grading only- Uniform SHop is not open Wk 1 grading). Choose whichever night is suitable for you and meet Cath in the room at the end of field #2.
GIRLS: You can dual register in both a mixed junior team (Saturday games) and a female only team (Sunday teams). If that is your intention please attend grading for both teams.
Help Needed as Independent Assessors for Grading nights this week
We're looking for people to act as Independent Assessors for Grading nights this week to help support the club's junior grading process. If you are available at 6pm this Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, or at 7:30pm this Thursday, please turn up to Ted Horwood and make yourself known to Rob Vallis, the club grading coordinator.
All help much appreciated.

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!
