Our Team Philosophy

All team members will get playing time wherever possible

It's not fun sitting on the bench week after week - so Barnies kids don't.


We try to ensure all kids get time to participate fully in the game and to experience the true feeling of being part of a team.


Our Current Teams

We are growing each and every year!

We currently cater for boys and girls of all skill levels from:


Under 7s to Under 18s

Uniforms

The tradition continues with our kids ....

Our uniform remains the colours of yesterday's heros ...


Red and White Striped Jersey, Black Shorts and Red Socks.  (Note for 2017 - we are reverting to RED socks)


The Club will provide the jerseys to play in however it is expected that children provide the shorts and socks.  


Of course shin pads are mandatory and mouth guards are highly recommended.  (Dental work is expensive.)


Our online shop (soon to be launched) provides our members with all the required teamwear and with our PUMA partnership, PUMA are donating a portion of all online sales back to the club - so please support our Shop!


Expectations

Being involved with a 'community club' still requires a commitment to Club and Team

We are a community club - so in this sense perhaps the intensity of an NPL or EPL club is not quite the same.


But we are still members of our Club and our kids are part of our Teams.


This in itself brings responsibilities and commitments and 

being part of a team means being committed to that team.


Yes, we do not train 4 times a week for two hours each - and yes, homework is expected to be completed ... but


Being part of a team means being committed to that team.


1. Turn Up


2. Be engaged


3. Notify the Coach if you can not make the session or game day in advance


4. Have respect for our volunteers time and for your fellow team mates and parents ...


Why?


Because your kids, through sport, deserve to develop responsibility, accountability and respect


And to achieve this ... they need your support and example.
