MY CHILD IS SIGNED UP FOR THE NEW LDFA SEASON.

On Matchday, full Blackheath FC playing kit of Shirt, Shorts, Socks, Football Boots 

and Shin Pads must be worn by all players.


No jewellery including earrings, necklaces, watches, nor any 

hats or caps are allowed to be worn.


DO WE HAVE TO GO TO TRAINING?

Yes, training is an essential element of your child's participation and enjoyment 

of the game and their team. Children are encouraged to attend training each

week to build a rapport with their coach and team mates, 

and begin their understanding of the game.

CAN WE BRING A FRIEND TO JOIN IN WITH TRAINING?

No, only children registered with Blackheath FC can participate in training. 

Friends of players on the team are not encouraged to join in training. 


IS THERE A TRAINING KIT?

Training gear is available through our club shop. Go to the BFC Merch online store.


Full match day kit is not necessary for training however football boots, shin pads 

and football socks are recommended. The boots, shin pads and socks 

combination can feel a bit clunky for some children, so the more they 

use them, the easier it gets.


WHAT HAPPENS ON MATCH DAY?

Players should arrive at the Marjorie Jackson Playing Fields in Lithgow 30 minutes before kick off 

so your child is ready to play and their name has been added to the match card. 

This also gives the team time to warm up, practice some shooting and receive
 last minute encouragement from their coach.

CAN WE WATCH FROM THE SIDELINE? 
Yes, you can but . . . 

REMEMBER IT'S JUST A GAME.

On match day, please support your child in a calm, sporting manner and remain respectful 

to all referees, coaches, players and volunteers from Lithgow District FA,

Blackheath FC, Lithgow Workies, Thistle FC, Lithgow City Rangers 

and Wallerawang FC.


WHAT HAPPENS IN WET WEATHER? 

Lithgow District Football Association football matches are played during the winter months, 

so wet weather conditions can be common. Matches are only cancelled if 
the ground is closed by Lithgow City Council or conditions are deemed dangerous for players.

Cancelled matches are very rare, but it's a good idea to create a Whats App Group Chat 
with your child's coach so messages  can be easily passed on regards the 
weather conditions ahead of training and match days.

Radio station 2LT (101FM) will make an announcement on Saturday mornings at the
 start of the 'Sports Show' just after the 8am news if matches have been cancelled.
