Dear Hills Spirit FC Community,

Regrading and Season Draw

After round 4 of competition, all age groups and divisions were reviewed for regrading opportunities. Over 50 teams were regraded as a result of this review. Fortunately, no Hills Spirit FC teams were regrading, although the competitions we play in will be affected by other teams moving in and out of these competitions.

A new full season draw will be developed by the association this week. Once this draw is finalised, I will collate this information and forward it to all Hills Spirit FC coaches and managers to share with their teams.

Please note our MiniRoos are not affected by this as we develop our own internal in-house draw for this competition.

Hills Spirit FC Development Program

A final reminder for those wishing to be part of the development program this season. Last season, Hills Spirit FC, in partnership with ASA Football Academy, successfully launched our inaugural football development program to provide professional, European style coaching to our players. We had 25 participants last season and the feedback from this program was fantastic.

We are looking to conduct another 10 week program starting from the last 5 weeks in term 2 of the school year running through to week 5 of the third term. The 2 weeks of school holidays will be back-up for any washouts during the first 5 week schedule. The cost will be $220 which all goes to ASA Football – this costs also includes a kit provided by ASA Football. We would be looking at 7.30pm – 8.30pm on Thursday nights.

Anybody who is keen on participating in the development program this season, please contact Pat on 0404 148 259 as soon as possible.

Fundraising

Thank you to everybody for contributing towards our current Cadbury Chocolate fundraiser. We are currently chasing up the outstanding orders and will finalise this shortly with coaches and managers. All monies raised will go directly back to our kids on presentation day.

Keep an eye out for upcoming advertisements regarding Hills Spirit FC branded wine!……..we hope all teams and parents get involved in this initiative and purchase some personalised Hills Spirit FC red and white wine!

Hills Spirit FC Gear to Purchase

We have been receiving numerous requests from people within the club wanting to purchase Hills Spirit FC branded gear. Brett Despoges has been working with our supplier and we will soon have items (such as tracksuits) which you will be able to order directly from the club.

Full advertising and promotion of this Hills Spirit FC branded gear will follow shortly, so look out for this via the weekly emails, facebook and via our club website!
