2019/2020 Season Welcome – Important Information

We are now preparing for the new season at Harefield Academy and look forward to welcoming you back after the break.

Here is some information for the new 2019/2020 season.

SJFA Values

The bedrock and values of SJFA as a club are outlined in our DNA.

The core values of Faith, Community and Respect, will resonate with all our players, coaches and parents alike. These values enable us to show our partners, the FA and other clubs that SJFA is truly a 5 star organisation as we continue to grow and move forward.

The SJFA DNA can be viewed here [link to https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F7rPMHljbwQ]

1.Registration

  • All current registered players will automatically be enrolled for the new training period.
  • There is still a Waiting List for All Tier Categories. We are constantly reviewing this to enable as many boys to start as we can.
  • To enrol as a new player with SJFA please fill in the form found at the link below.
  • Link for registration: https://sjfa.org.uk/new-player-registration/
  • Link for the membership costs: http://jafferys.org/gentsmembership
  • As our season/tier system is now aligned with the school years, all registered players will be automatically moved up one year/tier from September.

During the past season, we had registered players who either did not attend the sessions at all or had very low attendance. We review attendance regularly as it affects our planning and preparations. Furthermore, the huge demand resulted in waiting lists & it would be unfair to occupy a space without utilising it. Therefore, we will monitor attendance closely and take necessary action as appropriate when required.

2.TRAINING DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

For a comprehensive list of all the training dates, please visit the website at https://www.sjfa.org.uk/training-diary/ which is kept up-to-date with all the training dates.

3.WEEKLY ATTENDANCE / REGISTRATION

  • In order to enhance planning and preparation, we send out a WEEKLY REGISTRATION form every Monday for the upcoming Sunday’s training where players have to be registered for the training session. Without registration we will not guarantee training participation.
  • Weekly Training registration form will close on Thursday 12pm Midday unless the tier is full earlier. At which point the registration form automatically becomes a waitlist form that requires completion to add players to the waiting list.
  • If for any reason you cannot attend, please notify us by email (fa@jafferys.org) with your child’s name and tier number. Please let us know at the earliest if your child/children cannot make it to the training session so that we can allocate the space to a child on the waiting list for that tier. No shows without notification will be noted and followed up.
