What do we expect from our players?
You’re interested in joining our senior team and we’ve told you what’s on offer. But what do we expect from you?
The fundamental thing is commitment. If you regularly work weekends, or won’t be able to make the majority of mid-week or weekend practices then the Pirates aren’t for you. Players who don’t regularly attend practices, team meetings and make themselves available for games will not get time on the field and may even be cut from the team. We also need you to get your head into film, know your playbook, put in effort at the gym and pay your player subs regularly. If you’re only interested in turning up on gamedays or getting a new Facebook profile pic with a Pirates jersey on, you’re not who we’re looking for.
You’ll have a desire to improve and a great attitude. We’ll help you understand your strengths and your limitations and make you into a better footballer, but you need to leave your ego at the door and come to work as a team player.
You’ll go the extra mile for your team off the field too. This includes helping at charity and promotional events and fundraisers, attending team nights out and supporting and helping our other teams on their gamedays.
You’ll need a competitive nature. You’ll have the desire to fight for a starting spot in the team and the desire to get on the field and win. A good sense of humour helps too.
Still interested? See you in January!
