A kick around for players interested in playing for Thirroul's Under 18s Division 1, Youth Grade and other senior men's teams in 2017 will be held on Tuesday, 15th November at 5.45pm.
The kick around will take place at McCauley Park and/or the mini-field near the cricket nets as the main fields are currently unavailable due to drainage works undertaken by Thirroul JFC to improve the club's grounds for next season.
Players are requested to meet at Gibson Park, near the canteen, at 5.45pm.
The club's senior coaches will be in attendance and all players wanting to play for the Thunder or Thirroul's Under 18s Division 1 team next season are requested to attend, if possible.
In particular, the coaching staff are keen to assess those players wanting to be considered for the U18s Division 1 and Youth Grade teams, or both.
With the U17.1 and U16.1 teams being league and grand champions this season and the U16.2 team making the grand final, Thirroul JFC expects to have a strong U18s Division 1 team in 2017 and welcomes any player wanting to play in the U18s Division 1 competition to attend the kick around.
Those players will also be considered for Youth Grade selection.
Thirroul JFC made the finals in all three grades of the Football South Coast District League for the second consecutive year this season and aims to again be among the leading clubs in 2017, while continuing to focus on the development of young players.
John Cropper, the club's Mentor: Coaching and Development, will again coach Youth Grade and he will also work closely with the coach of the Under 18s Division 1 team.
John has coached First Grade (Wollongong Olympic, Woonona), Youth Grade (Bulli, Wollongong Olympic) and representative (Wollongong Wolves, South Coast Regional Schools) teams and a number of players under his charge have gone on to play for Australia or in the A-League.
Details of further kick arounds to be held on regular basis will be announced after Tuesday's session.
