How to Help out on Match Day


There are many thing that need to be done on Game Day and we need you to help out.  The kids will appreciate it and so will other parents.

Here are the Match Day Duties





It's not about sheep stations - it's a game!

It's important to remember this now and at all times.

Let's keep junior sport in perspective. The FJFC is about fun, fitness and participation. It's not about winning at all costs.
