At home afterwards

Game results must be entered onto YJFL’s website by 6.00pm on match day. Also adjust for any players listed on team sheet who did not play. Whilst results aren’t kept for younger levels, team sheets must be entered for games played to count.

Game day incidents
Only YJFL officials can report a player. If they didn’t see the incident, they can’t report it. Club officials can only lodge an official complaint though our club to the league. If the incident is unseen by the umpires, it becomes difficult for the Team Manager. Back your own judgement on the day, but speak with the opposing Team Manager, and attempt to get both parties together after the game to discuss. Try to keep it to just the players involved and the Team Manager's but make sure the parents agree with any decision made.

Let the Footy Operations team know ASAP.
