Coach & Manager Resources

Player Attendance Forms
Player Attendance must be recorded at every Training Session and sent to the club at admin@leichhardtsaints.com
You can use the Football NSW attendance form or submit directly into a Google form the club has set-up for teams.

If you do not submit the form, the team will be suspended from training until we receive it.
