COST

PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT

Each In-House team requires volunteers for coach and manager, with other parents rostered to set up and take down the goals, as well as bringing half-time oranges

All parents/spectators (except coach) are expected to stay outside of the pitch lines during games to avoid damage to the grounds

 

As parents are expected to volunteer, we encourage teams to organise their own training sessions throughout the week in order to prepare for game day

Whilst ESAFC provides no formal team coach, there are a number of Additional Coaching Programmes available, dependent on grade

 

UNIFORM

Each player will need their own uniform, available from the ESAFC Merchandise Page;

  • White ESAFC Shirt
  • Black ESAFC Shirt
