Message to WUFC Members

The board of Waimak United Football Club (WUFC) has become aware of personnel changes within the staff of the International Football Academy of New Zealand (IFANZ) and the increasing public speculation around these changes.  The board of WUFC is therefore endeavouring to clarify the status of the programme.

WUFC has a relationship with IFANZ as a private provider of exturnal coaching for the development of our junior players, through their high performance coaching programme.

As a number of our junior players are involved in the programme, WUFC feels it has a responsibility to our club members to seek assurances from IFANZ management on the academy's future.

To this end WUFC Chairman, Ian Fong, has requested a meeting with the IFANZ Principal, Piri Reiri to clarify the situation and would like to extend an offer to take any club members concerns to this meeting. Please email Ian directly at by 22 May 2015.

 

The WUFC board will advise club members as more information is made available.

Message from the Chair

Good Afternoon,

Now the season has started and we are all finally playing the game we love, I thought I would share with you a sign I saw the other day at another club;

Please Remember;

  • These are kids
  • This is a game
  • The coaches are volunteers
  • The referee's are human
  • This is not the World Cup

We are exactly the same.  Our club is run by volunteers. The council do not put up the posts and nets, mark out fields, organise the teams an so on,  volunteers do and for some reason this year we have had an increased number of members assuming we are some sort of fully funded body at your beck and call.  While football is the largest participation sport in New Zealand I would say we are probably the most under funded for the number of players in the sport.

So in the words of a famous U.S. president I would say "its not what the club can do for you,  its about  what can you do for the club"

Something to think about.

Regards Ian

Concussion in Football

Concussion in Football

You are probably aware that there was considerable concern in football globally after Christoph Kramer was permitted to carry on playing in last year's World Cup final despite suffering a head injury. At the local level, a spectator has recently asked Mainland Football about our policy after seeing a footballer return to the field despite what appeared from the side-line to be some symptoms of concussion.

 

Consequently, I have attached two resources that provide guidelines on the identification and treatment of possible concussion in sport. The first is taken from the FIFA website (see http://www.fifa.com/mm/document/footballdevelopment/medical/01/42/10/50/130214_pocketscat3_print_neutral.pdf). It emphasises that "any athlete with a suspected concussion should be IMMEDIATELY REMOVED FROM PLAY, and should not be returned to activity until they are assessed medically." If there is any suggestion of other injuries, or if the player is unconscious, it also says that no one should attempt to move the player (other than required for airway support) unless trained to so do.

 

The second resource is provided by ACC (http://www.acc.co.nz/preventing-injuries/playing-sport/common-sports-injuries/pi00105). It includes the FIFA pamphlet, but also emphasises the importance of having any suspected concussion managed by a doctor. In particular, the guidelines state that clearance by a medical doctor is required before a player who has experienced concussion symptoms can return to sport activity, including training.

 

The FIFA resource has been provided to all referees who have been asked to adopt a cautious approach if a players shows concussion symptoms as described in the resource. I ask that all coaches and team managers do the same, ensuring that anyone who shows any symptoms of concussion is not allowed to continue playing but is transported to proper medical care. I also ask that clubs ensure that medical clearance is obtained before allowing a player to return to training and playing, following the ACC guidelines.

Upcoming Referees courses

Upcoming Referees Courses

We are really keen to improve our refereeing stocks in 2015. 

As such the club will pay for members to attend any of the following courses and actively referee for one of our teams or tournaments.

As well as Division One teams requiring referees, and a recommendation for all competition grade teams,  we also have a number of club tournaments that members can become a part of by training as referees.  This is a great and enjoyable way to be involved in some awesome events.  We are keen to have a team of referees to share in this experience.

We encourage youth players to also attain refereeing qualifications as they can referee in the younger tournaments eg 9th grade festival, and Monday Twilight School competitions, as well as gaining a better understanding of the rules.

The Club Based referees qualification (Level 0) is the minimum requirement to referee junior Division One Saturday football.

We would also encourage members to gain their Level One qualification.  Under the new Mainland rules all Level One referees will be "carded" and can therefore referee any club game where they are the most qualified referee (home or away).  Level One referees will also be able to referee at our National Invitation tournaments at Easter, and July.

The following courses are available:

Level One referees course - ASB Football Park Thursday June 29th, Tuesday 1st, Thursday 7th & Tuesday 9th July (6.30pm– 9.30pm)

Or there is a Level One Referees course available online - where you undertake the course online and complete by attending one evening at ASB Football Park, Tuesday April 28th (6.30pm 10.00pm)

Click HERE to register for the Level One courses and select the one you wish to attend

Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury
Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury
are looking for more mentors!


Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury matches children ages of 6 through to 18 with mentors in a professionally supported one-to-one relationship.

Our programme matches a volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister with a child who could benefit from a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult. Mentors and the young person they are matched with meet a few times per month, for a couple of hours each time, at places and times convenient to both. The two share similar interests, and they spend their time together engaged in activities such as kicking a ball around, watching movies, visiting the museum, cheering on a local sports team or simply hanging out.

Children who spend time with a mentor gain confidence, acquire new skills and competencies, and develop an enhanced capacity to care for others. Mentors experience a sense of discovery and enjoyment as they see a world of possibilities open up through the child’s eye.
