IMPORTANT GENERAL NOTES:
1.  Some grounds are congested.  Fields are generally laid out in half field, quarter field or eighth fields depending on number of teams training.  Refer to this basic sample field layout below.  At Northbridge Oval, this is as seen from the Pavilion. 

2.  We especially ask that parents and spectators do not encroach on actual training space.  Please keep a safe distance and, for safety, please keep babies, toddlers and young children away from ongoing training.  If moving from one side of a training field to another, always walk around the full field, not through fields where training is on-going.  This is for your safety, but also to avoid interrupting a session.

3.  Player safety is an imperative.  Older teams should locate away from younger teams.  Coaches should use common sense at all times in this respect.

4.  Please keep to your allocated time slot.

5.  The schedule has been put together in accordance with the Willoughby City Council Northbridge Oval usage agreement.

 

 

Please contact Matilde Johns – academy@northbridgefc.com.au – with any queries/comments/change requests or if you think your team is missing.
