About Lane Cove Cats

Purpose statement and guiding principles

The Lane Cove Cats is a junior football club which provides to children the opportunity of playing Australian Rules Football for the purpose of competing in the AFL Sydney Harbour Junior Football League in order to promote participation, social development and good citizenship.

We recognise the LCCJFC offers the opportunity for children to participate in the game of Australian Football in a fun and safe environment.

We encourage the efforts of all players, coaches, umpires and volunteers and we will recognise and reward all efforts.

It is mandatory that all coaches, players, parents and supporters adhere to the club’s Code of Conduct.

We believe in player rotation to ensure all players are given the chance to participate and experience all positions on the ground.

We promote a positive, family-friendly environment welcoming all parents and volunteers to the club.

We encourage learning and skill development for all players, coaches and support staff and insist all coaches have a minimum level 1 coaching accreditation.

We believe in the importance of developing our community standing and will always look at ways of involving the LCCJCF in community activities.
