Hi Minchinbury Jets Soccer Club Members,
It’s round 9 this weekend, which marks the hallway point of the season. We have our team photo day this Saturday for our Saturday teams, and with 18 matches being played at home this Saturday promises to be a busy one at Minchinbury Reserve.We look forward to the sun shining and all those smiling photo day faces.
Yours in soccer
The Minchinbury Jets Soccer Club Committee
Acceptable Standards of Behaviour
Over the first half of the season, Blacktown Association has noticed an increase in the number of incidents involving poor behaviour from spectators, players and team officials. This seems to be across the whole association and is not isolated to any club. It has been disappointing to see some Minchinbury people involved in incidents that really shouldn’t have occurred.
Two weeks ago, we held a coaches and managers meeting to update our team officials on what has been happening and pass on an update from Blacktown Association regarding poor behaviour.
It is our club’s aim to be a club where all members and visitors can feel safe and comfortable and enjoy their soccer experience. From a club point of view, we want to set the standard in good behaviour We ask that everyone associated with our club help achieve this by being on their best behaviour, whether it be at Minchinbury or another ground. Please have respect for referees, team and club officials and your opposing team. RESPECT is an easy word to say, but it a much harder honour to earn! Let’s earn the respect of our peers, referees and members of other clubs through our actions and behaviour. Let’s learn that sometimes it’s best to bite your tongue and say nothing, just walk away! Be the better person, no matter what assumed provocation may occur. In short, lets start enjoying our soccer!
Kebab Day Postponed
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to postpone the planned Kebab Day that was to be held this Saturday 3rd June. We will advise as soon as we have a new date for the Kebab Day
