Rangers RAP – 28/06/2024

June 29, 2024

Is it really the end of June???

Wow the season is really flying by and we are now into the second half of the competitions. I hope this week the better weather will see all teams making it on the courts and fields and completing a full round of matches!

Good luck to all Rangers teams this week!

Some of our amazing volunteers have been hard at work putting together the Rangers Trivia Night, which is always such a fun event. We are yet to sell enough tickets to make the event viable so I urge members to get your tickets now so we don’t have to cancel the event. Tickets have been subsidised by our generous sponsors so are now just $20 – amazing value as they include a drink and some pizza! See the details below and get your tickets!

Wet weather 🙁
I know everyone is frustrated by the lack of matches and often late notice on cancellations. Unfortunately, there isn’t much we can do. All that can be done to relocate games is being done. The reality is that if we do play on some of these grass fields after heavy rain, they will get ruined, and the Council will close them for a few weeks to allow them to repair naturally. Which would mean even fewer games!

With the school holidays and sickness doing the rounds, please make contact with other age group managers if you need to borrow players to ensure you field a full team. All managers should have the contact list.

Around the Grounds

Spectator Etiquette

During my visits to the grounds, I have noticed that some spectators stand on the sideline and can often impede the game.  Can everyone be mindful of this and stand at least 1 meter back from the sideline.  Parents and spectators should stand on the opposite side of the field to the coach/manager and substitute players.

Being considerate of the players and referee in this way will prevent players from potentially injuring themselves or a spectator.

Player Attire

A reminder to all players and parents.  Hats are not to be worn by players during the game.  The only exception is the goalkeeper (if the sun is in their eyes).  Please ensure we stick to this rule, to prevent potential injury to players during the game.

Make up matches are being scheduled so keep in touch with your team manager and watch for updates on Dribl as matches are confirmed. Some training sessions may be cancelled to allow for week night matches so thank you players for your understanding with that.

We have seen a good turn out at the Great Northern Hotel following matches over the weekend and encourage teams to get together after their matches and to mix with other Senior teams. We really pride ourselves in wanting our teams and players to connect with one another and to be part of the Club.  With this in mind, look out for end of season events to be announced soon.

Wishing everyone a full round of matches and lots of great football!

Preventing Football Injuries with the Fifa11+

A message from our partners Movement 101 Chatswood.

Have you ever heard of the FIFA11+ program? Continue to read to find out exactly what it is and how it can help you with your performance!

As a Physiotherapist, I’ve seen firsthand how common and debilitating these injuries can be.

That’s why I want to highlight the importance of incorporating the FIFA11+ into your training routine and pre-game warm up.

The Fifa11+ is a scientifically proven warm-up, designed specifically to prevent injuries and enhance performance in soccer players. It started specifically to reduce the risk of groin injuries (formerly known at the FIFA11 program), but has now developed into the FIFA11+ which has been adapted to decreasing the risk of sustaining all lower limb injuries.

FIFA uses this program with its elite athletes, so why wouldn’t you? It includes a series of exercises focusing on strength, balance, and core stability, all crucial for maintaining peak physical condition and avoiding common soccer-related injuries.

In my experience, the FIFA11+ is particularly effective in reducing the risk of lower limb injuries, including groin strains, hamstring issues, and knee problems. By dedicating just 20 minutes before each training or match to this routine, players can significantly improve their muscle control and coordination. This not only helps in preventing injuries but also boosts overall performance on the field. The program is easy to follow and can be adapted for players of all ages and skill levels, making it a valuable addition to any warm-up routine regardless of age and level.

Give these exercises a go and see how you go!


By doing these exercises, together we can create a safer, more effective training environment and help you reach your full potential. Let’s commit to excellence and injury prevention with the FIFA11+.

Alternatively if you are suffering from an injury, feel free to book in a FREE triage consultation for our Physiotherapists to assess your injury.
