Welcome to the Engadine Eagles Football Club.
There are a number of rules, regulations, codes and policies that all club members are required to follow.
These are designed to ensure the successful running of the club. These include,
- Club Constitution – The club constitution provides information about how the club is run and the rules of the club.
Changes to the constitution are required to be submitted in writing to the Secretary, 1 month prior to the AGM. The AGM is generally the last Friday in July. A majority vote is required for the changes to be incorporated into the constitution.
- Codes of Conduct & Child Protection Policy – These are designed to ensure that all involved within the game, enjoy the game. These policies should be strictly adhered to.
The Club’s Child Protection Officer for the 2017 season, is Tod Barden and he will look after the issues involving;
- Wet Weather
- Grading Policy
- Duty Requirements
CLUB PLAYING STRIP
The Club’s playing strip consists of a blue and white shirt (provided by the Club), royal blue club shorts and socks.
This strip is registered with the Association and must be worn by all players when taking the field. The wearing of shin pads by every player is compulsory. Under no circumstances must a club shirt be altered. Never cut off excess length or remove the size tag.
If your team requires a shirt not necessarily standard with your age group, please ring Deb Dumbrell (0411 325 873), who will arrange a replacement.
To complement our on field uniforms, we also have available Club Supporter’s gear. These are reasonably priced.
Some items will be in stock and available through the canteen, while others are required to be ordered.
Please keep and eye on the website and Facebook, for information on orders.
It is also reminded the the shirts are the property of the club and at no stage does the player own the shirt.
Therefore, shirts are only to be worn at the game, not at training, before and after games, or by teams doing duty.
Keep an eye on the website and Facebook, for any functions to be held during the season.
When training actually commences, training times will depend on your team coach. The Club will arrange with the Association for Anzac Oval to be available for official training (date to be advised), likely to be available two weeks prior to the start of the season (i.e. 13th March). To assist with the upkeep of the fields, the Club requests that training exercises are not conducted in high use areas, such as the immediate area around the goal mouths.
If, due to wet weather, the fields are closed – no training can take place. Any team using Anzac Oval when grounds are closed, will incur the $1000 fine levied by the council.
Under no circumstances must the Rugby League field be used for training.
COACHES AND MANAGERS
Mums and Dads, if you are interested in coaching, assistant coaching or managing a team, you are invited to complete the application form, which is available on registration, grading days or the website. Coaching or managing is a rewarding experience and does not take up too much of your time.

To help coaches and managers understand their role in 2017, a meeting will be held this season, on Friday 24th March.
The meeting will commence at 7.30pm and be held in the Eagles Club room. ID Cards will also be distributed on the night.
PRE SEASON SOCIAL GAMES
Social games are organised where possible, usually on the two or three Sundays, prior to the season commencing (due to Saturday summer sport commitments). Please note we will not be able to organise a social game for every team/age group in the Club.
