ALDI MINIROOS FOOTBALL 2020 ALDI MiniRoos Football is a modified form of 11-a-side football, designed to meet the needs of players between the under 6 and 11 age groups, who have very different developmental characteristics and needs compared to adult players. The philosophy of ALDI MiniRoos Football focuses on enjoyment and freedom of expression with limited emphasis on coaching per se, particularly in the formative years of a player’s development. Almost without exception, young players in the major footballing nations of the world are introduced to the game through Small Sided Football. Brazil, France, England, Scotland, Ireland, The Netherlands, Germany, Japan, USA and Korea all introduce their young players to the game using this approach. Considerable research has been conducted into the benefits of Small Sided Football in many of these countries. Overwhelmingly, the findings have shown that Small Sided Football is enjoyed more by children and is a more effective method of improving their technical ability as footballers (compared to 11-a-side football). The FFA National Curriculum aims to provide national guidance and an integrated and consistent approach to the development of players and coaches throughout the country. Registrations for MiniRoos opens on the 1st February 2020. http://northernnswfootball.com.au/play-football/

NORTHERN NSW FOOTBALL REFEREES Referee Accreditation Courses Laws of The Game

2020 Club Resource and Information Manual

19


The journey towards Football refereeing begins with an online course “Laws of the Game”. To complete this free course click on the link: https://www.playfootball.com.au/referee/laws-of-the-game Northern NSW Football is responsible for the delivery of Referee Accreditation Courses. These courses are conducted regularly in each of the zones. The Referee Level 4 qualification complements the Laws of the Game’s theoretical focus and is aimed at match officials officiating in junior and youth matches. The minimum age to apply for a Referee level 4 course is 13. (12 year old’s may be allowed to attend the course if they are turning 13 soon after the course is completed). All referees start here. The Referee Level 3 course builds on the skills and knowledge developed in the Referee Level 4 course by focusing on ‘skill consolidation’ and is aimed at match officials officiating in junior to lower divisions of adult football. From here referees can progress to Referee level 2 & Referee level 1 courses to develop the skills required to officiate higher grade matches such as the NPL. For more information on courses, registrations & resources head to the referee headquarters on NNSWF’s website: http://northernnswfootball.com.au/refereeheadquarters/ For information on becoming a referee or developing a Referee Pathway please email NNSWF Senior Officer – Match Official Administration and Development Brad Carlin on bcarlin@northernnswfootball.com.au. Northern NSW Football Referees continue to be recognised at the highest level, with strong performances at FFA National Championships events and representation on the FFA National Panel. Newcastle Permanent Referee Recognition Week In 2020 Referee Recognition Week will be held during the week of 20th to 26th July 2020. This is an important initiative inviting clubs to recognise and raise the profile of officials.

Player Registration Fees It is a requirement of Football Federation Australia that player registration fees are listed, outlining levies imposed by FFA, State Members, Regional Zones and Clubs. The information listed below can be utilised by clubs to provide parents and players with a better understanding of the costs associated with registration fees. 2020 Club Resource and Information Manual

20


With over 66,000 registered players, a region spread from Newcastle to Queensland and as far inland as Lightning Ridge, there are many costs associated with the administration of football in Northern NSW. Whilst the game cannot succeed without volunteers, consumer demand in today’s environment exceeds volunteer capacity and more clubs are moving towards a ‘user pays’ system to satisfy this demand. In football, the operational structure flows down from FIFA, the world governing body, to FFA, to State Member Federations, to Regional Zones and ultimately to Clubs at grassroots level. Registration fees in Northern NSW vary due to the fee component imposed by individual Zones and Clubs, together with Match Official fees. For instance, some Clubs include Match Official fees in their registration fee whilst other Clubs charge Match Official fees on the day. Listed below are the registration levies imposed by FFA & Northern NSW Football for 2020. These fees do not include the individual Zone or Club levies:

INSURANCE NNSWF have joined with all the other member federations to provide insurance cover for all players, match officials, volunteers, coaches & managers. Gow Gates are our new insurance provider. FFA National Insurance Programme The Northern NSW Football Insurance Programme website is provided so that Players & Club Administrators may have immediate access to the policy benefits and procedures of the insurance programme. Northern NSW Football and Gow-Gates remain committed to providing the football community with a first-class Sports Insurance Programme whilst maintaining the affordability of registration.

RISK MANAGEMENT 2020 Club Resource and Information Manual

25


It’s your responsibility

Risk management is the course of action you take to reduce potential legal liability through limiting the risk of harm and injury. It seeks to address potential problems before they occur. Risk management aims to be pro-active rather than reactive - creating a safer environment and legally safer operational procedures. A common mistake clubs make is to view risk management as a program in isolation. It is really an ongoing process that should be applied to all your club’s policies and procedures.

Benefits of risk management

Potential benefits and opportunities for implementing effective risk management procedures are:      

better sporting or recreational outcomes improved safety for participants, officials, spectators and volunteers lower costs and increased budget certainty more effective management of assets, events, programs and activities improved compliance with the law, regulations and other formal requirements enhanced image and reputation.

Risks facing sport and recreation organisations

The inherent nature of sport and recreation means that risk areas are broad. Some general risks that could apply to your sports club include:     

Not being incorporated Not complying with Child Protection legislation Not making members aware of the FFA Member Protection Policy Not requiring participants to sign a waiver or release form prior to participating Providing equipment and facilities that are not safe for intended use.

Risk management checklist             

Appoint a risk manager - responsible for the risk management process Identify ‘key’ people (i.e. head coach, event manager, finance director) who will be involved in managing risk Determine the club’s risk management context Risk Management Audit. Identify risks – what can happen, why and how? Analyse risks Evaluate risks Design a risk elimination and reduction plan Implement the plan Develop and implement a clear communication strategy on risk management Communicate the strategies to all appropriate levels of the club Ensure the board addresses risk management periodically as a meeting agenda item Monitor and review strategies at least annually and report to the board through the risk manager Ensure the board has adopted and implemented a risk management policy.

GOALPOST SAFETY The use of temporary or portable goalposts is prevalent in many football clubs across Northern NSW Football. Safety is a priority for the usage and storage of these goalposts. Installing goalposts correctly is a mandatory requirement of Australian standard AS4866.12007 and Product Safety Notices issued by FFA, ACCC, NSW Office of Fair Trading. Since 1986 7 DEATHS IN Australia and 40 worldwide have occurred as the result of falling goal posts. The ACCC Product Safety Notice along with the Australian Standard AS4866.1-2007 state that all portable goalposts weighing in excess of 28kg must be securely anchored. https://www.productsafety.gov.au/news/anchor-check-respect-the-game-plan-formoveable-soccer-goal-safety As a minimum one of the following methods should be used: 10 stakes (at least 300mm long)

12 bags of sand

10 bags of cement mix

FOOTBALL AS A BUSINESS Let Marketing Score Goals For You Off The Park! Today more than ever all sport, including football, is a business. At every level of sporting activity - administration, players, clubs and associations, a sound business orientation including marketing has become a key element of sporting success. If you consider your club as a ‘product’, it’s easy to see that by enhancing the ‘quality’ of your product and the perception of your ‘brand’, the ‘product’ becomes more appealing. The more professional at every level you make your presence in the sporting marketplace, the easier it will be to secure sponsorship, attract new players/members, enlist the support of volunteers and the community and ultimately make your club a greater success. To prepare your clubs promotional material and strips, do you have a high resolution soft copy of your logo? Is it in a number of file formats to allow printers, screen printers and others to reproduce it professionally? Developing a professional looking logo and club identity isn’t all your marketing issues resolved...but it’s a start!

SUN SAFETY Sun Protection for Sporting Groups Football across all Northern NSW Football zones continues to grow into a sport played throughout the entire year. Because of greater involvement in the warmer summer months, participants need to be aware of Sun Protection as well as policies that direct when it is safe to be participating in organised football activities. Cancer Council NSW has developed comprehensive resources which sporting groups can adopt as their own. A sun protection policy should include the following key elements:  Outdoor events, games and training are scheduled wherever possible outside of peak UV times (10am – 2pm and 11am-3pm daylight saving time).  Sun safety is promoted when the UV levels are 3 or above. Check the SunSmart UV Alert.  Players, officials and spectators are encouraged to use shade from trees and buildings.  The organisation provides shade structures, and individuals are also encouraged to bring their own shade, eg, umbrellas.  The organisation provides or promotes sun protection items such as sun-safe clothing, hats, sunglasses and sunscreen, for players, coaches and officials. Useful resources from the Cancer Council. https://www.cancercouncil.com.au/cancer-prevention/sun-protection/ https://www.cancercouncil.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/CAN10501_SportingOrg-Sun-Protection-Checklist_WEB.pdf Northern NSW Football Heat Policy; https://northernnswfootball.com.au/hot-weather-policy/ Northern NSW Football Lightning Policy https://northernnswfootball.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/NNSWF-LIGHTNINGPOLICY1.pdf

A limited licence for multiple (multi) functions allows non-profit organisations, like sporting clubs groups, to sell alcohol for consumption at up to 52 functions a year. Alcohol can only be sold and consumed at the function. These licences are issued under strict conditions after application is made. Some of the LAWS that must be adhered to when selling alcohol include;         

FOOD SAFETY The NSW Food Authority is the NSW government organisation that helps ensure NSW food is safe and correctly labelled. It works with consumers, industry and other government organisations to minimise food poisoning by providing information about and regulating the safe production, storage, transport, promotion and preparation of food. http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/foodsafetyandyou/keeping-food-safe/key-tips Under the Food Standards Code and Food Act 2003, any group or individual that sells food (whether for charity or not) must follow good hygiene and food handling practices, including proper construction and maintenance of the food premises, so that food being served is as safe as possible. Sporting groups and their volunteers do not need to appoint a Food Safety Supervisor to prepare food which is to be sold to raise money for charitable purposes provided the food is eaten immediately after thorough cooking and does not pose a possible health risk. FINISH WITH THE RIGHT STUFF. Finish with The Right Stuff presents practical ideas for sporting club canteen volunteers to improve the health of their canteens.
