TEAM * CLUB * COMMUNITY
2016 - Pre Season has commenced.
The 2016 Season has commenced with Pre Season starting on 7th January, at 6:30pm. It will continue each Thursday until further notice, please be at the oval ready to start by 6:30pm.
With Beau Jarman being reappointed as Freeling's A Grade player coach, he has already been at work planning out a Senior Coaching strategy with new Freeling Reserves coach, John Boxer.
John comes to us from Gaza, where he won their Best & Fariest last season, coming 2nd in the Division 2 Medal. His previous football exploits include Norwood Under 17's and 19's, Division 5 Premiership player, and winning the Division 4 Medal at Golden Grove in 2009. John moved to Gaza in 2011 where he played in the Division 1 Premiership team and came 2nd in the Division 1 medal that season, winning Gaza's best and fairest, and runner up in 2012 and 4th in 2013. He has played at State level against Tasmania in the U/23 State Team for SA, as well as City and Country representative games.
Our Senior and Junior coaches have also been appointed, with Paul Erskine taking the reigns for the Under 17 1/2's agai, while Dave "Squizz" Taylor come back to coaching at the Redlegs taking the reighns for the Under 15's. Both coaches are looking forward to a promising season, with projected good numbers in our Senior Colts and a youthful Junior Colts with a mojority of Under 13's taking the big step up to premiership points and finals football.
Good luck to Beau and all the Senior coaching staff.
Online registration is now the only way we can get players registered to play online. The window for registration will open around mid Febraury. We will advise on the website and Facebook page when this is available.
The league has merged the Senior & Junior registration under the one system, so we will make it as easy as possible for you to register in the right age group.
You have the option of paying into the club accounts by Credit Card, but you will also be able to finalise your payments at the club in cash. We will also provide clear instructions for this to make sure you have an easy experience.
Keep and eye out for the opening dates.
The online registrations will also have the availability to become a general memnbership, or take out a family membership for two adults and two Junior Footballers at a reduced price.
General membership will cover you gate entry for home games for the season, as well as provide you with voting rights at club AGM's and more importantly, support our club. We currently have a small membership number, and if you take out the players, this falls well below an acceptable number. I can say it is below 100 (by a fair distance). Please consider taking a general membership this year when they become available. Let's see if we can crack the ton for General Members at the Redlegs.
A club cannot survive without a strong member base, please speak to one of our committee members if you would like to become a general member of Freeling Football Club.

We now have a facebook site which will keep you up to date throughout the pre and off season, please feel free to utilise this but keep in mind that this page is accessable by all Senior and Junior footballers and their families. Keep it footy related.
