  • We keep our team equipment and jumpers to a very high standard.

Registration Fee Refunds

Registration Fee Refunds

Version: 1.1
Committee Approval: 10 August 2016

Intent

This document is intended to clarify the extent of refunds of registration fees should a player decide to leave the Club prior to the end of the playing season.

Parents and players should be aware that the Club incurs non-refundable charges for each player registered in the Sporting Pulse system and for equipping teams at the start of the season.

Policy

If a player is unable to play out the season by error of the Club, then either

  1. a full refund shall be made available, or
  2. arrangements will be made for the player to play to another Club (by way of either a transfer or permit) and the registration fee applied to playing fees at the other Club.

If a player is unwilling or unable to play out the season for any other reason, then either

  1. a pro-rated refund by number of games less Sporting Pulse administration fee shall be made available if the Club is notified prior to Round 5 fixtures, or
  2. registration fees are foregone if the Club is notified on the date of Round 5 fixtures or later.

In order to be eligible for a refund of registration fee under this Policy, the player shall provide notice in writing to both the Team Manager and the Club Registrar. The Club Registrar shall liaise with the Club Treasurer to arrange reimbursement.

Team Selections

Team Selections

Version: 1.0
Committee Approval: 8 February 2017

Intent

This policy specifies how players are to be allocated to teams in instances where there is more than one team in an age group.

Background

This policy is consonant with, and draws upon, policies implemented by the Australian Football League, the WA Football Commission, and Claremont District to ensure the best playing environment for all players. It is designed to balance various objectives pertaining to player attraction, retention, and development, and to ensure clear expectations amongst coaches, players, and parents regarding the allocation of players to teams.

Within the limits of this Policy, WCJFC will support coaches in any reasonable decisions that they make regarding the allocation of players to teams while preparing for the playing season, or to correct team imbalances during the course of a season. The Policy is designed to provide a decision-making framework for coaches, to provide clarity for players and parents, and to provide a reference in instances of disagreement.

Policy

Even numbers. WCJFC will so far as possible field teams with equal numbers of players.

Even playing ability. WCJFC will so far as possible field teams of equal ability in each year.

Team Composition. WCJFC’s members are drawn in the main from local primary and high schools. As a community club, it seeks to encourage long-term friendships extending beyond school groupings. As such, teams will wherever possible incorporate players from a range of schools rather than being school-specific.

Rotation Amongst Teams. In order to develop a range of friendships, and to help reduce the attrition rate amongst players in particular year groups, it is expected that players will rotate amongst teams during Years 3 to 6. In other words, teams should be re-picked each year rather than ‘carried forward’ so that players are encouraged to feel that they are members of the Club rather than of any particular team. This will also expose players to a range of coaches and diverse coaching and playing styles.

Review. In cases where playing results indicate that teams are not of comparative ability, the Football Operations Committee, in conjunction with coaches, may review team members with a view to re-allocating players in order to meet the requirements of this Policy.

Request for Review. Any request for a review of team allocations should be directed in the first instance to relevant team coaches who are free to conduct a review while adhering always to this Policy. Subsequent appeals should be directed to the Vice President as Chair of the Football Operations Committee.

Implementation
Year 3 to Year 6

In these years, the primary emphasis is on participation and enjoyment. Additional goals are the acquisition of football skills, the nurturing of physical and emotional development, and general well-being derived from involvement in team-based sports with a group of friends from school, the local neighbourhood, Auskick, and other sporting activities.

There are no ladders or finals for these age groups. Whilst everyone knows who has scored the most at the end of a game the emphasis must be on player development rather than winning. Fun and player development are best encouraged by playing in a team that is evenly matched and competitive.

In these age groups, team selection will follows this hierarchy of principles:

  1. Teams will be composed of equal numbers (or as close to equal as possible)
  2. Child(ren) of a coach will play in that coach’s team
  3. Teams will be of comparable ability
  4. Teams will comprise a mix of players from different schools
  5. Each player will play with a core of at least two other players from within his/her school or friendship group

It is expected that at the start of each season that teams will be re-selected based on the above hierarchy, and to the extent that it is reasonably possible, players will be placed with a new coach (excluding coaches’ children) and new team mates.

Year 7 to Year 12

The AFL Youth Age Policy aims to maximise the recruitment and retention of players through the pathway to senior football by providing the following qualities:

  • Games that are fun, fast and skilful. The pace of the game engages participant attention in close games, and success is achieved through skilful play, fulfilling team goals and coach aspirations, all of which are shared amongst peers.
  • Social interaction. Participants are drawn to opportunities provided by football for socialising, developing and maintaining friendships, and operating as a team where the peer group is of most importance.
  • Competition. Whilst winning is fun, players are more concerned about the quality of the contest. Leagues and clubs should ensure well-graded competitions.

In these age groups, team selection will follows this hierarchy of principles:

  1. Teams will be composed of equal numbers (or as close to equal as possible)
  2. Teams will be of comparable ability
  3. Teams will comprise a mix of players from different schools
  4. Child(ren) of a coach will play in that coach’s team
  5. Players will be allocated to ensure the development of their skills so that, for example, players best suited to particular playing positions or roles will be shared
  6. Wherever possible, each player will play with a core group of friends from previous playing years
  7. Players subject to a formal skill development program will be allocated to the coach responsible for designing and implementing that program
Failure of Coaches to Agree

In cases where coaches fail to agree the allocation of players, they may proceed in any one of the following ways:

  1. Excluding the coaches’ children, one coach chooses all of the teams and the other coach(es) determine which they choose to coach.
  2. Commencing with the coaches’ children, and proceeding according to a coin toss, coaches take turns picking players from the available squad.
  3. Teams are selected by member(s) of the Football Operations Committee decided by the Vice President, in conjunction with the coaches.

Selection and Appointment of Coaches

Selection and Appointment of Coaches

Version: 1.2
Committee Approval: 2 December 2015 / 10 August 2016

Intent

This document is intended to clarify the process for nominating, selecting and appointing coaches for Junior and Youth teams.

Responsibilities

Appointment of coaches is the responsibility of West Coast Junior Football Club, and is to be executed by Coordinator – Coaches. It is not the case that teams (or parents of players in teams) are allowed to appoint coaches, although their preferences will be accounted for in the Club’s decision.

Coaching Staff

Subject to finance and the availability of suitable candidates, it is intended that each team in Year 4 to Year 7 will be coached by a parent (or parents) of a player(s) in the team, or by another suitably qualified adult. It is similarly intended that each team in Year 8 to Year 12 will be jointly coached by a parent of a player in the team, and a current senior player from either the West Coast Amateur Football Club or the Claremont Football Club. The role of the parent is to ensure the provision of appropriate pastoral care and communication, and to assist and deputise for the senior player as appropriate. The role of the senior player is to lead all other duties typical of a coach. It is a joint responsibility of the two parties to define precisely the demarcation of duties between them.

Working With Children

Coaches with children in the relevant team are exempt from Working with Children checks under the appropriate legislation. All other coaches are to complete the appropriate Working With Children check and licensing as soon as practicable after appointment. Coaches who fail to complete the check and licensing will be relieved of the role at the discretion of Coordinator – Coaches in conjunction with the Vice President.

Nomination

Nominations for coaching roles can be made by

  1. contacting Coordinator – Coaches directly in writing; or
  2. indicating an interest in the role on the Player Registration form; or
  3. acceding to an approach from Coordinator Coaches.
Selection

Where there is no more than one coach nominee per team, Coordinator – Coaches will make the appointment at his or her convenience. Where there is more than one nominee, and nominees indicate that they are unwilling to work as joint coaches, a selection sub-Committee will be formed comprising Vice President, Coordinator – Coaches, and one other Committee member.

a. Appointment of Coaches for Junior Teams

The sub-Committee will decide on the appointment by a majority vote, taking cognisance of:

  • Formal coaching qualifications and demonstrated expertise
  • Coaching history, particularly development of attitudes, skills, and structures amongst previous teams (noting that this does not always align with game results)
  • Documented plans for skill and personal development for individual players and teams
  • Demonstrated commitment
b. Appointment of Coaches for Youth Teams

The sub-Committee will decide on the appointment by a majority vote, taking cognisance of those factors at a. above, and also

  • Willingness to work in conjunction with a current senior player appointed as coach
  • Demonstrated ability to work productively with a current senior player appointed as coach
  • Commitment to a game style and structure consistent with modern senior football

Coordinator – Coaches will implement the decision of the sub-Committee.

If any member of the selection sub-Committee is unable to participate in the selection process by reason of a conflict of interest, then a replacement member shall be appointed by the President.

If the sub-Committee is unable to reach a majority decision, then the President shall make the decision.

Term of Appointment

Appointments will be made from season to season, and will be finalised by 1 March.
