VOLUNTEERS

COACHES

Miramar Rangers Junior teams rely on parent volunteers to coach, manage and referee their teams. Coaching involves running training sessions and coaching from the sidelines at Saturday games. To see how the Club supports volunteer coaches, check out the Coaches + Referees page.

MANAGERS

Most teams also appoint another parent as team manager to assist with scheduling, logistics and communication.

REFEREES

For Grades 7 and 8, the kids are largely self-moderating as they learn the ropes. From 9th Grade onwards, all matches have on-pitch volunteer referees. From 10th Grade onwards, all JPL (or Premier) teams are required to provide a qualified referee. Capital Football runs refereeing courses through the season and there is usually at least one per season run at the club. For more information about referee training, check out the Coaches + Referees page.

GRADE MANAGERS

The Junior arm of the club is run by a small committee made up of volunteer Grade Managers, the Junior Chairman (Andrew Wilson), Club Administrator (Rosie Telford) and Junior Development staff. This group meets monthly year-round and oversees the trial process, puts teams together, appoints coaches, and provides leadership for other club activities such as fundraising and community liaison and events.
