Club Roster Duties Information

During the season teams will be nominated to assist with club duties on Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays

Please don’t be afraid to put up your hand and help out. The duties are fairly simple and the committee will be available to assist and walk you through the process.

Canteen/BBQ Duty

Friday Evenings: 4.30pm to 7.30pm

U6, U7 and U8 teams will be rostered for Friday night BBQ and Canteen duty. Once all the teams are confirmed, the roster will be completed for the season and posted on the website. It is the responsibility of the Team Manager/Coach to arrange the necessary people to cover the BBQ and Canteen. Usually split into 2 shifts with 2 x BBQ and 2 x Canteen required to be at each location at all times.


The teams are nominated from the weekly draw of teams that are playing at Captain Cook. There will be 2 teams nominated for Saturdays i.e. AM/PM shift. The U6, 7 and 8s are not required for duty on Saturday/Sundays.

Later in the season some teams MAY be required to cover duties a second time. This is because not all De La teams get to play at home (due to the number of teams) and some teams get to play regularly at home. It’s called the luck of the draw!


Usually the older junior/senior teams take care of duties on Sundays, with the U16s responsible for the BBQ as part of their end of season trip fundraising.

Ground Set Up & Pack Up


The last team playing on the mini field (usually an U8s team) is responsible for packing up the equipment and returning it to the containers.


The first team playing is responsible for the main field set up and the duty team is responsible for the CANTEEN ONLY. The last team playing at home (usually a senior team) is responsible for the packing up of the main field.

Ground Management

U/6, U/7 and U/8s

These age groups Ground Manage their own games. It is the responsibility of the Team Manager to arrange a suitable parent to take on the role, which involves: making sure spectators stay behind the roped off areas, and discouraging spectators from using bad language or criticising referees. No Coach, Team Manager or Scorer can cover Ground Management.

U/9 and above

The team that is playing either prior to or after your own game on the main field is required to provide a parent to do the role of GM. The older grades from U/13 and above should have an experienced GM as these are international rules and you need to control the game. The seniors will have those GMs that are on the Committee.

REMINDER : It is the responsibility of the team to arrange necessary people to cover the roles. The club representative will usually provide your team with an email on the Tuesday or Wednesday prior to the game. We do not require names, just an acknowledgement that you received the email and things are being organised.
