Fire Damage at the Joondalup City FC club rooms.
On the 18th December 2020 a fire caused damage to the Joondalup Sports Association. Thankfully nobody was injured but the changing rooms suffered a great deal of damage. The fire started in the Cricket club's storage room and quickly spread the changing room area via the roof space.
The changing rooms are currently closed for repair and the most recent update we have received from he City of Joondalup is as follows;
Eastern changerooms (including referees room)
The damage in this area is much greater than initially thought. As a result, the ceiling, gables, tiling and fittings are all required to be replaced.
Demolition works have commenced this week and repair works are expected to take approximately 6-8 weeks.
As a result, these changerooms are not expected to be available for club use until late March (final date subject to confirmation).
Western changerooms and storage areas
Demolishment works will commence in this area in the coming weeks.
Works are expected to take approximately 4 months
As a result these changerooms and storage areas are not expected to be available for club use May (final date subject to confirmation).
Updated timeframes and confirmations of final dates will be provided when possible.
From above we envisage that the eastern dressing rooms will open before our season commences. With the 2 Western rooms potentially not opening for a few weeks after the start, we will stagger KO times to ensure all teams have a changing room availablilty prior and post match.

Ever wondered what we do with the old kit?
Recently we teamed up with the Rotary club to look at how we might find a good home for our old kit. We were delighted to find out that a group of dedicated school leavers embark on a 'Leavers' journey a lot different from what we would all expect. The team of 'Leavers' set off to Timor where they help out local communities in whatever ways they can. In this instance they filled their backpacks up with our kits and carried them to those children less fortunate than most.
See the pictures and short write up below – it appears that the timing couldn't have been better. The next run, next 'Leavers' will likely focus on football boot donations…watch this space for more details and how you can help in the future."
Fiona McFarlane, the Team Leader for the Rotary Timor L'este Leavers program, accompanied the team of 14 school leavers from Kalamunda to Timor L'este in December 2015 and presented the team with playing shirts donated by Joondalup City FC.
Fiona commented..."The football jumpers were a great hit and very much appreciated - just in time for the "Hauba Soccer Championships" which kicked off on the 9th December. The assistant to Timor Leste's President was there to start the championships off - she was most impressed with the generous donation."
