The Murranji St storeroom – where the mini goal posts, cones and corner flags are stored – will be open each Saturday to allow access to the equipment.
Allow about 20 minutes to set up (“dress”) a field. Please ensure two people handle the PVC poles etc as the connections can be brittle and do break. Children should not carry the spikes or flags.
All teams should check the noticeboard each Saturday to see whether they need to dress and/or undress their fields. Under 6/7 girls teams always need to dress their fields as they play first every time.
Under 6/7 Girls: set up cones and mini goals (2 sets of 2 x 1.5 metre uprights and one 1.5 metre cross bar).
Under 8/9 Girls: game uses two sets of goals that are kept in the bags and put out to the right of the Canteen each Saturday morning.
