Regardless of the weather, the Belmont FC team photos scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week will go ahead. The photos will be taken inside of the office rather than on the field.
Please remember to have your team ready in full playing uniform and in order of height 10 minutes prior to your allocated time so that the night runs smoothly.

Northern NSW Football’s Silent Saturday initiative for 2018 will be conducted on Saturday May 26.
The message to all clubs who will be conducting ALDI MiniRoos matches on this day is to encourage all spectators & coaches to “Keep Quiet” and “Just let the kids play”.
This message is especially important to team coaches who have the opportunity to set a great example to their players and the parents by showing that the game is for the players and to refrain from any communication to the referee, instructing referee or game leader.
This initiative covers all ALDI MiniRoos age groups (5-11) with the aim of just letting the kids play and have fun without having to worry about how their performance is affecting the adults on the sidelines.
The objectives of holding a “Silent Saturday” are:
- To re-emphasise that the game is for the players and allowing the kids to simply play and have fun.
- To give the players a chance to play, learn and enjoy the game on their own.
- To completely eliminate the verbal questioning of the referees’ decisions and/or ability.
- To reaffirm to parents and coaches that players do not need constant direction to enjoy their match
Kids have the right to play without having to hear:
- “Wake up! Don’t just stand there!”
- “You have GOT to be kidding me!”
- “Why do I waste my time coming?”
- “Watch the game ref”
- “Kick it ! Kick it !”
Spectators are advised to refrain from making any verbal comments on the game or direct any comments to the players, referees or coaches – on or off the field.
Clapping IS of course allowed and supporters are encouraged to be creative in how they choose to cheer their child’s team – make signs to hold up, bring a scarf in the team’s colour and wave it wildly, there are lots of ways to cheer other than verbally.
Whilst it is early in the season and Presentation Day might seem like it is a long way off, we thought that setting the date and advising everyone early would assist teams and families in planning ahead.
The Presentation Day for Belmont FC 2018 is scheduled for Saturday the 22nd September.
Belmont FC have recently been successful in receiving a grant to assist with the purchase of a defibrillator.
Training in the use of the defibrillator will take place at the clubhouse on MAY 16th at 5.30pm until 6.30pm.
All parents are encouraged to attend.
We hope that we will never have to use this device but in the event that it is required the more people that are able to operate it the more chance we have of effectively using this life saving device.
These devices are very automated with step by step by step instructions.

In our Presentation Day yesterday, Hayden Jones, one of our U14 players was awarded the Wayne Rose Trophy which is our award for the clubs Goalkeeper of the Year.
Hayden did a sensational job this season as goalkeeper as he has done in previous years. Hayden has shown great dedication to his football, his team and also his club and this is proven every week at training and in every game.
Hayden has gone very close to receiving this prestigious award previously, so it was a proud moment for both him and the club for him to be selected as the recipient of the award this year. Hayden was also the recipient of his 10 Years Service Award at the Presentation Day which shows his outstanding commitment to the club.
