Open Letter from the President (3/2/14)

Hello Box Hill United family,

I thought I would take the time to keep you updated with what's happening around the club since Xmas.

*James Muir, our Technical Director, has been busy in employing the services of all the Junior Boys, Junior Girls and womens coaches. He has also got a team of MiniRoos/SAP coaches ready to go for when their preseason starts. I would like to welcome all the new coaches to Box Hill United, and wish them all the best in the process of educating and developing our stars of tomorrow.

*FFA/FFV are changing the terminology for the SAP (Skills Acquisition Program) and MiniRoos (Small Sided Football) programs to MiniRoos. It is simply a marketing strategy with a name change only. Everything else will remain as it has been for the last few years.

*There has been extensive work done on the ground surface at Wembley park. The reason for the works is that Whitehorse Council have discovered some very low levels of soil contamination 30cm below the ground surface. Whitehorse Council have taken a very conservative approach in the interests of making sure we have a safe playing environment, and have superficially top dressed the ground to make sure that we have a reasonable playing surface for this season. Whitehorse council will hopefully get funding at the end of this year to repair the ground, get rid of the contaminated soil and in the process reconstruct the whole ground with new drainage and Sprinkler system.

The concern to our club is that council has limited the use of Wembley Park, and have only allowed the Senior Men/Women and Reserve Men/Women to play fixtured games on Wembley this season. We are now working with council to find alternate match day venues for our MiniRoos and Junior Boys/Girls for this Season. We will keep you posted as soon as news comes to hand, and would like to thank you in advance for your understanding on this.

*At the end of this week, Friday 7th Feb, FFV will announce the succeMiniRoosul NPL clubs for 2014. As you are well aware, Box Hill United has put in an application with an expression of interest to be a part of the NPL. Regardless of whether we get in or not, the landscape of Football in Victoria will change for the better with the introduction of the NPL, something all the upcoming juniors will benefit from. We can only hope that we can be a part of it.

*Finally, if succeMiniRoosul in our application to the NPL, the Committee of Box Hill United have resolved the following fee structures for Season 2014:

6's-7's $400
8's-11's $625
Junior Girls $1,100
12's-18's Boys $1,980 there are numerous inclusions in this price and they will be detailed once announcements are made.

The figures above allow the club to break even once accounting for all the expenses we would incur. We have kept Registration to a minimum, well short of the maximum amount that a majority of NPL clubs will be charging, which is $2,200.

Thanks for taking the time to read this message, and I look forward to keep you updated with any new developments.

Alex Palmos
Proud President

Matthew has predominantly worked with senior women’s teams in both Victoria and Tasmania. He has been the Reserves Coach at Sth Melbourne Womens FC for 5 of the last 6 seasons.

NPLV Update

Dear Players, Members and Supporters

By now you may be aware the National Premier League (NPL) in Victoria has been confirmed by Football Federation Australia and Football Federation Victoria for season 2014 and beyond in a revised model.

After consultation with the Box Hill United membership towards the end of the 2013 season, the message was loud and clear, whether it be senior players, junior families or committee members, Box Hill United must ensure it retains its Small Sided Football (MiniRoos) component so that no child is displaced from our club.

With this in mind it was decided that the club would not pursue an application for the NPLV under the original model.

Over the last few months, Box Hill United Vice-President Nicholas Tsiaras has been instrumental in changing the landscape of the NPLV to ensure that NPLV clubs can continue to have their MiniRoos programs in place and those children will not be displaced from their local clubs.

The newly revised model will not impact the existing structure of the club in so far as the club will continue to have MiniRoos within its structure and retain its independence.

The revised model will see the Men and Boys NPL commence in 2014 and in 2015 the Women and Girls NPL will be introduced in their own right.

The Box Hill United Committee would like to advise that the club will be submitting an application to be granted a licence as a NPL club in Victoria in both 2014 and 2015.

We will have information posted on facebook, twitter and our website as it becomes available for public release.

Yours in football

Alex Palmos
President

Open Letter to the Membership of Box Hill United SC

Dear player and parents

With trials coming to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the families for making the effort to trial, and wish you all good luck in selection.

The Technical Director, James Muir, along with his assessment coaches are looking at offering positions to players within the next week. There will be some players accepted, some who will be told they are not required, and some players within certain age groups will be invited back next week or early next year so that they can have a closer look at them prior to making their final selections.

As you may already be aware, the National Premier League (NPL) will be going ahead in Victoria in 2014. The model recommended by FFA will be rolling out and it now has the full support of FFV. The club has been at the forefront of negotiating the changes to the model to ensure the success of the NPL and for the benefit of the game in Victoria.

The revised model will see the Men and Boys NPL commence in 2014, and in 2015 the Women and Girls NPL will be introduced in its own right.

On Wednesday night (11/12/13) the Box Hill United Committee convened and discussed in detail whether our proud club should apply for a position in the NPL for season 2014 and beyond. The Committee voted in favour of Box Hill United applying for a position in the NPL for season 2014 and saw it as a fantastic fit for the club.

How does this affect Box Hill United? Not much at all.

There will be no displacement of teams, in particular Small Sided Football, from what the club had in season 2013. All players selected in the junior squads will be offered a position to be a NPL player for Box Hill United in season 2014.

The fees charged for NPL Squads will unfortunately have to be reviewed, which we are currently undertaking. There are increased costs of governance which have to be filtered and apportioned to the player base. Although the NPL has a cap of $2,200 per player, the club is reviewing its costs to ascertain what it will be charging Boys/Youth in squads ages U12 to U20.

It is proposed, at this stage, that the MiniRoos and Junior Girls scheduled fees as outlined are unlikely to change for season 2014. We also will also be the addition of new programs by the club, which will be open to all.

The Committee of Box Hill United will remain as transparent as possible to all our members, and we will keep you updated with any further developments as they come to hand. Attached you will find the public release for your information.

Many Thanks

Alex Palmos - President

Appointment of Technical Director
