Thirroul JFC's stated aim is to foster football by creating an environment for our players where success is not judged solely by winning but by having fun, improving skills and development a love for the game that will see them want to continue playing to senior level.
As a guideline, it is reasonable for each player to expect to play at least half a game each game, provided the player:
is fit to play;
has regularly attended training, and;
demonstrates the appropriate attitude for being in a team environment.
It is also desirable that players receive approximate even playing time across the course of the season.
