Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

MOSS­MAN Ju­nior Sharks are al­ways look­ing to in­crease mem­ber­ship in the Ju­nior ranks, for chil­dren aged from 6 to 16. If num­bers per­mit, the club is look­ing at form­ing an Un­der 12 girls side.

Vol­un­teers as­sist­ing coaches with first aid and man­ag­ing teams are wel­come with the Ju­nior Pres­i­dent’s goal for 2017 to have a man­ager and first aid at­ten­dant with a coach for ev­ery grade. Club cov­ers costs of vol­un­teers ob­tain­ing Blue­cards, First Aid, League Safe ac­cred­i­ta­tion and also any new coaches and coach reac­cred­i­ta­tion costs.

There are some home games in Moss­man with helpers for set­ting up fields and the can­teen.

Ju­nior play­ers have op­por­tu­ni­ties to be in­volved in the Se­niors home games at half time to pro­mote the ju­niors and also give the younger play­ers the chance to play un­der lights.

This year Moss­man Ju­nior play­ers will be again in­volved in the Un­der 10 Gor­don Tal­lis Cup and the Un­der 11 Lau­rie Spina Cup, to be held in Townsville.

The Un­der 13 Nate Miles Cup will be in Cairns and a brand new Un­der 12 Shane Mus­pratt Cup will be held in Ayr.

Other ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for Ju­nior Sharks in­clude the chance to play a mini half time game at Barlow Park when the Cow­boys and Rab­bitohs come to Cairns.

Sign on day is early Fe­bru­ary at Moss­man Show­grounds, with train­ing start­ing soon af­ter, with the Sea­son kick­ing off in early March, through to Septem­ber/ Oc­to­ber.

The new pres­i­dent would like to thank the out­go­ing com­mit­tee for their ded­i­ca­tion over the 2016 sea­son, with spe­cial thanks to Jenni Walker for her many, many years of tire­less work.

Those in­ter­ested in find­ing out more about club sign on, mem­ber­ship and vol­un­teer­ing please con­tact Billy Adams, Ju­nior Club Pres­i­dent, on 0409 490 498.

Tyson Os­borne lead­ing the charge
