Rules & Rule Changes

2020 Rules & Rule Changes

Coaches, Players and Parents are encouraged to know the rules and be aware of the specific rule changes for this season.

View this information via these links to the WACFA website.

WACFA Bylaws – 2019 [PDF]

WACFA By-law-25 Disciplinary Regulations – 2017 [PDF]

U16 girls Competition Rules

Small Sided Football

In line with the recommendations of the FFA, WACFA endorses a non-competitive environment as the best way to introduce young players to the game of football. In our U6, U8 and U10 competitions no competition table is kept and the formats follow the “Miniroos” formats as seen in the following links and as detailed in the WACFA By-laws.

“Miniroos” is the name the FFA has given to a modified form of football designed to meet the needs of young players who have very different developmental characteristics to adult players. The philosophy of “Miniroos” focuses on participation, fun and enjoyment of the game and its reduced player numbers maximises the individual’s contact with the ball while retaining the competitive element essential for player development.

The following links provide the general rules and playing formats for “Miniroos” and should be read in conjunction with the WACFA By-laws. The WACFA Competition By-laws take precedence where differences exist.

Admin Assistants

The Greyhounds Committee are very pleased to announce the part time appointments of Llewellyn and Lachlan as Admin Assistants for the 2019 season. We are excited to see our juniors transitioning into adults in our Club, who want to take some ownership for the future direction and growth of everything Greyhounds. Those who attended Rego Day would have seen both our Admin Assistants in action!

Moving forward, Llewellyn will work closely with Jill on day to day administration tasks, especially during this busy time at the front end of a new season. Lachlan may be in this space as well, but has also agreed to review and revise some of the underlying policy of our Club. A look at our constitution and re-registration with ASIC are on the agenda this year.

Please join us (the Committee) in welcoming Llewellyn and Lachlan into this new role within our Club.

If you would like to become more involved with Greyhounds please email either me (president@greyhoundscsc.com.au) or Jill (registrar@greyhoundscsc.com.au) to express your interest and begin a discussion. There are some bigger roles like V/President and Treasurer, but also lots of other places where you could make a contribution.

God Bless
Graeme
(President)


We will see who is under whose thumb, Lachlan!

Treasurer Needed

Following the terrific service of Peter Deeks as Club Treasurer we are now looking for an enthusiastic and suitably skilled person to take on this role.

Peter has agreed to help in the transition and the Committee will support, but we ideally need someone to come on board now as we move into a new season.

If you think this might be you, or even if you just want to find out a little more about what is involved, please contact:

Jill Carter (0407 423 007) – enquiries@greyhoundscsc.com.au, or
