If in the unlikely circumstance that we do not have enough players to form a team, we will refund you and assist you with finding another playing option elsewhere.

Training
 

U5-U7

Training is reliant on a parent nominating to coach the team and will take place on Wednesday or Thursday afternoons. Footballs, cones, whistle, pop-up goals and session plans will be provided. Taroona Football Club's Head of Junior & Youth Development will be available to support coaches where needed/possible.

To be registered each team will need a parent volunteer to coach and another to manage the team. We strongly encourage all parents to attend the first training to get the team organised. There must be an appropriate level of supervision for the children at all training sessions. Parents should not rely solely on the coach for supervision.

The volunteer coach will have their child's (one only) PlayFootball registration fee rebated ($140 in 2022).

U8-U12

Teams training will be conducted through the TFC SKiLLS Training Program which operates from Parliament Street Park or Kelvedon Park on Wednesday afternoons for Term 2 & 3. 

The program is designed for those new to the game and also for players looking to pursue a development or high-performance pathway. The program is facilitated by accredited coaches. 

The volunteer manager will have their child's (one only) PlayFootball registration fee rebated ($140 in 2022).
 


Volunteers
Taroona FC is a community club relying on volunteers to make the season work.

 

For the U8 to U12 teams to be registered each team will need a parent volunteer to manage the team, coordinate communication between the club and the team, and may need to run a game on a Saturday if the team coach isn’t available.

There may be occasions where a parent will need to referee a half of a match.

The parent who volunteers for this role will have their child’s (one only) registration fee component rebated ($140 in 2022).


For the U5-U7 teams, they will need 2 parent volunteers, a coach and a team manager. The coach will usually need to referee a half of a match.  The volunteer coach will have their child’s (one only) registration fee rebated ($140 in 2022).


The club will provide support to these volunteers by providing session plans and training support where required.  No previous experience in football is okay.

For those interested there are free and paid training courses offered through the season.
All volunteers must also register on the Play Football site when their team is registered. There is no cost for registering as a volunteer.

Volunteers must hold a current Working With Vulnerable People registration and must provide their card number. If a parent is thinking about volunteering and doesn’t hold this registration it would be advisable to commence the registration process as it can take some time for it to be processed. There is a small fee on application associated with this. More information can be found at Registration to work with vulnerable people (cbos.tas.gov.au). 


Game day
Games are played on Saturdays between 9am and 2pm. In 2022 some games may be played on Friday nights where a team requests it. The first game of the season will be on the 7th of May with 14 rounds. The last game will be on the 27th of August.
