Offside Information 

Offside is active from U12s.  For a simple explanation click here
For MiniRoos (U11s and below), there is no offside rule enforced (see rules of the games MiniRoos website) it states that instructing referees should discourage kids from standing in an offside position (goal hanging)

Attention all Coaches - Coaching Qualifications and WWC
If you have not already done so, please forward a copy of your current coaching qualifications and Working with Children Checks to Desiree at ASAP.  A scanned copy, iPhone/smart phone copy or photo copy will suffice.
If you have not yet completed your coaching qualification by enrolling in FFV scheduled public courses, your Head of Coaching can discuss this further with you.
If you do not have your Working with Children Check, you will need to obtain a form from any Post Office and send to the Department of Justice as soon as possible.  The process takes about 6 weeks so best to start on it ASAP.  Please advise us if you need any further assistance with this.
Thanks for your help with these matters.
