UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS

GGFC will provide your child with a guernsey, which is to be worn on game days only. This guernsey is your responsibility for the length of the season, and must be handed back to your Team Manager at the end of the last match of the season.
In addition to the guernsey, you will need to supply:
1. blue football shorts for home games and white shorts for away games.
2. Clean football boots for training and game days.
3. GGFC football socks (like the eagles).
4. Drink bottle.
5. Mouthguard (highly recommended)
On exceptionally cold days, in the under 7 to under 10 age groups, players may wear a blue skivvy underneath the guernsey.
Sportspower at Golden Grove Village Shopping Centre will be happy to help outfit the players with boots, socks and shorts. Sportspower are great supporters of the club and offer a 10% discount to all Golden Grove Football Club players.

VALUABLES

We would prefer that players leave valuables, such as jewellery, watches, expensive clothing and mobile phones etc. at home.
Please do not leave any property unattended.
We recommend that you leave all bags and belongings with a parent or guardian, or under the supervision of the Team Manager.
DO NOT LEAVE BAGS OR BELONGINGS IN UNLOCKED CHANGE ROOMS!

GUERNSEY CARE INSTRUCTIONS

** VERY IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ!! **
We ask that you follow these instructions on caring for your guernsey:
1. Hand washing is recommended in warm water. Any stains can be removed by scrubbing with a soap or spray (i.e. Preen, etc.)
2. PLEASE DO NOT IRON the Guernsey. If you must press the guernsey, please turn it inside out and iron on the wool setting, otherwise the fabric may scorch.

PRESENTATIONS

GGFC makes available encouragement awards for each team which are presented to players as an incentive.
The Coach determines the recipients of the awards and we ask that during this time, everyone remain seated, and that noise be kept to a minimum so everyone can hear and enjoy the Coaches presentations. This is a great opportunity for families to support and encourage your child (ren) in their football development, and a great chance for players and families to socialise with others. Full bar and snacks are available for purchase

LET KIDS BE KIDS

GGFC is part of the national Let Kids Be Kids campaign to discourage poor sideline behaviour during kids’ sport. Read more about the campaign here and keep an eye out for our promotional material.
