UNIFORMS:

All players are required to wear the Chatswood Rangers playing uniform (shirt, shorts and socks).

Playing Shirt:

In 2020 the club changed to a new playing shirt to coincide with the introduction of a new major sponsor and players were provided with a new shirt.

In 2022, new players or players requiring a new playing shirt are required to purchase one. Further details regarding purchases will be provided by the Rangers on the club website.

U12-U18 players do not need to purchase a playing shirt. The shirt will be provided (on loan) by the Club and is expected to be returned at the end of the season; i.e., it remains the property of the Club.

Shorts – white shorts, available from the online shop.

Socks – royal blue socks, available from the online shop

Shin guards – MUST be worn when playing or the player is not allowed to take the field – available at most Sports Stores.

HOW TEAMS ARE FORMED:

Chatswood Rangers and the Northern Suburbs Football Association believes it is in the best interest of all players that, where possible, they play with and against players of similar ability, we therefore undertake varying degrees of player grading across our junior teams. 

In 2022 Chatswood Rangers will take the following approach to team formation:

Under 6 and 7 Teams typically formed on school and friendship groups
Under 8 and above An A and B team will be selected as development squads following trials. Where player numbers permit other teams will be formed on school and friendship groups

PARENT INVOLVEMENT:

As a not-for-profit, we rely on the collective strength of our club members to continue to make Chatswood Rangers successful, fun and rewarding for everyone. It is also a great way to be more involved with your child’s team and the community. At a team level, each team will need a manager and a coach, and a game leader (referee) for Miniroos.

At a club level, we are building a sub-committee structure to enable Junior Football to support the , bring diversity of ideas and improve the delivery of the football program for all.

Junior Football programming requires the following roles to support our players:

  • Female Football Coordinator
  • Football Development Coordinator
  • Mini-Roos (U6-U11) Coordinator
  • Juniors (U12 – U18) Coordinator
  • Junior Football Equipment Coordinator
  • Summer Football Coordinator
  • Communications Coordinator
  • Gala Day & Events Coordinator
