Gear and Shirts Return

Coaches - is your training kit still filling up the boot of your car? Managers - the team jerseys are all washed and sitting in the laundry or by the front door waiting for you to remember to do something with them? Sounds familiar? If so, reclaim your boot, laundry or wherever you've got the team gear stashed away and bring it back to the clubhouse this Thursday afternoon from 5-6. Too many teams still have not returned their gear, and we need it all back so we can check our stocks for next

Thank you, Majura Coaches and Managers

Hi Majura Coaches and Managers, Thank you all for your time and effort this season at Majura. You play a very important role at Majura and also in your players lives. We hope that you have enjoyed the season and we’re sure you will enjoy the off season as well. I know many of you will be going again with futsal.  Here is some end of season information: Presentation Day Saturday September 9 Presentations for the Pee Wees to U9 teams will be in front of the clubhouse as per the time table below. Pee Wees will receive individual trophy presentations while the U/7 – U/9s will be team presentations. We will give the team their box of trophies which they can then take away and have their own individual presentation. We want the age groups to come together but we don’t want it to take too long. For the U/10 – U/18s, the team coach/manager can come and collect their trophies/medallions on Saturday morning from 9am as we know some teams will be travelling for away games.

There is to be no negative shouting, directing of players or negative gestures from the sidelines Coaching staff to only speak to players at halftime and/or when making changes Clapping & cheering encouraged for goals scored and for good play from both sides No questioning of the referee in charge of game You can find more information about the Let Kids be Kids campaign here.

Season Resumes this Saturday

Dear Majura Football Family, Well, what a great first half of the season. The sun was shining, the sausages sizzled, the smell of curries wafted, the games were not played in mud, the cheers from the sidelines were full of encouragement, excitement and sometimes disappointment - this is Majura FC.   I think it's very important to say well done to all the Age Group Coordinators, Coaches, Managers, Referees, weekend helpers, parents/carers, canteen helpers and of course my Committee team (if I have left anyone out you know who you are). This is your Club and Majura FC is well known in Canberra for its wonderful spirit and it has certainly shone through. Congratulations to the Majura teams and referees that participated in the Kanga Cup. It was a great week with many successes and personal achievements. And now it's back to the second half of the season starting this Saturday 22 July. I look forward to seeing you all. I'm at the fields every Saturday either doing set up, helping at the BBQ or enjoying one of Rhonda's famous curries, so if you want to talk about anything at the club then come and say hello. Peter Docherty President Majura FC Reminder about Parking, Dogs and Golf Practice! Just a reminder that parking inspectors are regular visitors at the Dickson
