Who knows they just might be even better players in waiting!

See you there.

Attention Parents of U13 – U18 Male Players – Help Out a Mate Program


I am a PhD student at the University of Wollongong, and the Help Out a Mate program is part of a larger project funded by the Movember Foundation. The program aims to promote male mental health through sporting clubs and we believe it will equip the adolescent males with skills that could potentially underpin a lifetime of positive mental health behaviours. Como West-Jannali Junior Sports Club has been really supportive of this initiative and the aim is to have one workshop for each boys team in the U13-U18 age range over the next couple of months. I had the great opportunity to meet some of the parents and tell them about it at the soccer field over the last two weekends.

Help Out a Mate is a short (one hour) mental health literacy program that focuses on what mental health and mental illness is, specific disorders including depression and anxiety, how you could recognise these in a friend, and what to do if you do recognise it.

The aim of the program is to decrease mental health risk and stigma and increase skills to help out a friend, both on and off the field. However, we also believe the program has many other benefits, such as:
·       help to foster a healthy club environment
·       provide an opportunity for team bonding
·       prevent dropout
·       develop leadership skills and teamwork

The presentation is around one hour, so it could, for example, replace one of their usual training sessions. Alternatively, they may choose to have it immediately before or after training or whatever works best for the team!

If possible, I would like to come along and meet the boys themselves at the start or end of training this week and just tell them a bit about the program. This should only take 5 minutes. I have had the chance to meet some of the other teams last week.

All participants will need to provide written consent before participating in the program and we will also be gathering data for research purposes, however we will do all the legwork! Somebody can come to training and hand out consent forms and the surveys at a later date.

Thank you for your support – we are really looking forward to working with you and Como! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Kind regards,

Working with Children Checks

All Coaches and Managers

Welcome to the 2016 football year, as one of the 2 volunteer child protection officers for CJFC I am seeking your assistance as Coaches and Managers to meet the Working with Children requirements. These are legislative requirement and are mandatory for all sports clubs in NSW; not to mention an important part in the well being and protection of our kids.

The requirements are shown here on the Football NSW webpage, but basically you are except from needing to complete the working with children check if you are a volunteer who coach's or manages their own child or close relative's team. (you will still need to fill in the member protection declaration form)

Football NSW

Please read through them and determine if you need to complete a working with Children check or FNSW member protection declaration and email myself or our other child protection officer  Megan Noyeaux with either:

1. your WWC Number, your full name and Date of Birth


2. your completed FNSW member protection declaration

The form can be downloaded Here.

Your assistance in returning these promptly is greatly appreciated. If you are aware of anyone I have left off or may be a new coach/manager this year and not yet on our email list please forward this on to them.

A Message from Tim Kelly, Captain of AL2

This September, my Dad and I will be walking the Kokoda Trail to raise funds for a number of charities. It has been something we have been talking about doing for a while now, and now we have finally locked in a date.

The early morning training sessions have already begun and were looking forward to getting up there and giving it our best.

We have a goal of raising $5000, which will be distributed to charities BackTrack, Careflight, CUFA and SANDS (details of each can be found on our GoFundMe page).

Any help would be appreciated, from $1 to a Facebook 'share' to raise awareness. All funds raised are being matched by ASL, who have organised the trip.

Hope to keep you all updated over the journey. Wish us luck!
