On behalf of the Leichhardt Saints FC Committee, I welcome all players, parents, coaches, managers and officials to an exciting 2013 season of football at Saints. A special welcome to anyone joining us for the first time or returning after some time away.

With registrations and team formations well organised it is now time to bring on the fun and enjoyment of playing football. I ask everyone to be familiar with the range of Club policies and procedures which are outlined in your Players or Officials Rego Handbook and also available on the Club website ( View Handbooks ).

Please check for details of your team’s Training allocation Here

A number of teams are looking for a coach and/or manager so  please volunteer your contributions in whatever capacity you are able to ensure the safe and enjoyable conduct of football in our Club. In 2012, the Club again received the Bert Harvey Award for Sportsmanship and Fair Play from our Canterbury District Association, an achievement for which we should all be proud. Our aim is to win it again this year.

I am also asking you to participate in the running of your Club in a couple of very important ways. We rely heavily on volunteers to carry out so much of the running of the club. This year we have a changed allocation of training nights at King George Park for Tuesday and Thursday nights. Our canteen raises significant funds for the Club in order to keep your Rego fees as low as possible each year. We now require at least 2 regular volunteer helpers from 4:45 pm to 6:30pm on each training night in order to operate the canteen. You need only volunteer for one of the nights, not both. Ideally parents will already be at the park with their kids at training ! I urge you to help out in this way and ask that you send your details to me which I can pass on to Laurel, our long serving Canteen Manager.

The Club also requires responsible adults to assist with Grounds management on parks where Saints provide matches to be played each weekend. The Ground Manager(s) is responsible to the Committee for safe, secure and smooth on field operations. We need volunteers for various regular shifts on Saturdays and Sundays at King George Park, Sydney Secondary College Leichhardt Campus or at Leichhardt Oval 2. The Club provides an honorarium for these volunteers. Again please forward your details to me to register your interest.

If I can be of any help to you as the season gets underway please contact me by email at president@leichhardtsaints.com

Let the games begin !
