Something new that MJFC is trialing in 2019 is using external companies to help keep you upto date with your child’s team.
Both of these companies will give you lots of really useful information that parents need to know.
Please note that you will only need to use ONE of these two companies. It is unlikely that you will need to use both.
Please feel free to let your Team Manager know what your thoughts / feedback are regarding the service offering from these two companies. That will help the club make a decision regarding our communication strategy for 2020 and beyond.

In order to maximise child participation in the game, different age groups have different amounts of players on the field.
Junior Girls under 10 – under 14’s have 15 players on the ground with a maximum of 6 on the bench.
Youth Girls under 16 – under 18’s have 18 on the ground and max 6 on the bench.
There is a strong chance that the answer is YES!
MJFC try to encourage fun, friendships and team development and because there are 15 – 24 players in a team there is an excellent chance that your daughter can play with her friends.
Please note though, that many older age groups including Youth Girls are played to a high standard and player safety must be considered before a final decision is made.
Different teams have different training nights and this may come into consideration as well.
On match day your daughter will need:
NFNL & MJFC playing jumper
NFNL official game day socks (short or long length)
NFNL & MJFC official game day shorts. Home is black and away is white.
Please note that the shorts & socks are available via the uniform shop.
Mouth guards are compulsory on game day (optional for training).
Footy boots are compulsory on game day (optional for training).
Game day water bottles are provided by the club.
In 2019 there are NO weekly match fees. Thank you.
Training sessions are usually once per week and go for around 60 minutes for the younger age groups and around 90 minutes for the higher age groups.
Times vary depending on the team, the coach and the ground availability. They are usually after school between 4pm – 7.30 pm Monday to Friday.
Full details are listed on our Facebook page & if you scroll down this page just slightly you will see the training table listed for you.
Participation is the key with training so children only need to bring their water bottle and a desire to have fun and develop their skills.
Mouthguards are optional for training (although recommended for higher grades).
Footyboots are optional for training.

MJFC takes their commitment to player safely very seriously. Each match has a parent volunteer as the Team Medic. This person has a Level 1 First Aid qualification (minimum).
It is MJFC club policy that all children with Asthma must have their puffers with them before they can take to the field.
For player safety reasons we have a strict “No puffer = No play” policy. We thank all parents and players in advance for your cooperation on this important matter.
If you child has other medical needs please speak to the MJFC Club Medic who can work out a plan so that your child can participate and have fun safety with their friends.
The MJFC Medical Officer’s email is – email@example.com
Each team will be allocated a Team Manager. MJFC will give the Team Manager the contact details of either one or both parents so that you can be kept informed of all upcoming matches.
Information is also available via SportsTG Website and Team App website (& app).
If you would like to volunteer as the Team Manager, please click here.
The answer to this is both yes and no.
NFNL is a graded competition and we try to match players with team mates of a similar ability and then put the team in a grading that is a good fit for everyone.
U9 and U10 do not keep official match scores. The focus is on participation, fun and skills development. The Game-day Scorekeeper keeps track of the official score and then submits the result to the NFNL to make grading adjustments as required.
U11 – U18 play a full graded competition with active scoreboard. Players on the ground and spectators in the grandstands will all know the current score during all stages of the game.
