SJFA – 2018/2019 New Season Arrangements

Following an eventful 2017/2018 season, we are now preparing for the 2018/2019 season at Harefield Academy and the SJFA team are looking forward to welcoming you back after a hopefully well-rested Summer Holiday.

Kindly find below initial information for the new season starting on 9 September 2018.

1.HAREFIELD SEASON 2018/2019

Registration

  • All current registered players will automatically be enrolled for the September -December training period.
  • There is now a Waiting List for All Tier Categories.
  • To enrol as a new playerwith the SJFA in any other age group, please fill in the form by visiting the link below. Spaces will be allocated subject to capacity.
  • Link for registration: http://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 2018.

During the past season, we had registered players who either did not attend the sessions at all or had very low attendance. Whilst we were lenient with this, going forward we will have to be firmer as it affects our planning and preparations. Furthermore, the huge demand resulted in waiting lists and you all will agree with us that 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.
