Hot Weather Policy
15 March 18: Extract of Notice from MFA received:
With the temperatures expected to rise this weekend, we thought it prudent to send a reminder of FNSW Heat Policy (see attached, and refer to the links provided in the policy document for further prudent information).
In summary, the policy states:
RECOMMENDED TEMPERATURES FOR CANCELLATION OF GAMES & TRAINING and other events including trial games, selection trials, clinics or any physical activities:
Cancel or postpone events involving Adults at ambient temperatures of 37°C or above
Cancel or postpone events involving Children at ambient temperatures of 32°C or above
These are the maximum cancellation temperatures. Cancellation of games, training or events at lower temperatures may be necessary depending on factors such as: humidity; local conditions including radiant heat from synthetic surfaces and lack of ventilation at indoor centres; player wellbeing; and player acclimatisation. For the purpose of this policy a child is a person aged up to and including 16 years of age. Note that young children are especially at risk in the heat and should not be forced to continue playing or training if they appear distressed or complain about feeling unwell.
We all have a duty of care in relation to the heat, and we need to make every effort to ensure the safety and well-being of our players, officials and committees etc. - personal liability claims could be an issue if it is found that we have not undertaken prudent steps to follow the heat policy guidelines and recommendations in the event of a major heat related death or major incident.
Your Club supports the Heat Policy and will enforce it if required at any time.

NSW ACTIVE KIDS PROGRAM - $100 REBATE TO ALL CHILDREN UNDER 18YO.
What is the Program?
Over the next four years, the NSW government will be allocating an annual $100 rebate (to every child who is enrolled in school and is aged under 18 years), towards their participation in sporting activities. This means that you can apply for the rebate, and use the $100 towards registration costs, which in a lot of cases will mean that you will not need to physically pay for registering to play at St Mary's Eagle Vale Soccer Club in 2018 (or worse case, pay only a nominal balance)!
How good is that! Register to play football at St Mary's Eagle Soccer Club basically for free in 2018 thanks to the NSW Government!
Important Information: Click here to access the Registration Guide Support Document which will guide you through the registration process to ensure you don't miss out on accessing the NSW Active Kids rebate.
IMPORTANT NOTE – The rebate does not come into play until 31 January 2018, however to secure your spot at the Club, you can register to play via the online registration program from 3 January 2018, hold off on online payment, and apply your voucher code when you receive it to complete your registration!
