It's quite fitting that Chris Jarrett is in charge of Kootingal's Northern Inland Football Premier League outfit this year.
As the coach himself puts it: "We're all embarking on this together."
Jarrett has been involved with the Kootingal Kougars for "eight or nine years" and coached a range of junior sides in that time.
He has also been a coach within Northern Inland Football's high performance program but this season will be Jarrett's first foray into coaching senior footballers.
2020 will also signal Kootingal's return to the Premier League which will give the club's junior base a pathway to the top flight competition.
"Most [footballers in the side] are Saturday local players so it's a new experience for most of them," Jarrett said.
"I'm used to coaching high performance juniors but this is something new for me. It's a great challenge, very rewarding. It's been great how responsive the players have been.
Jarrett added: "Players can start here from under 5s and play right through to Premier League. They can stay in the club, it's their choice."
Jarrett won't be doing the coaching alone, though.
Assistant coach and manager - Bob Barber and Brad Costigan - will make up the three-man team at the helm of the Premier League side.
The trio have had limited time to work with their troops with the COVID-19 pandemic throwing a lot of their plans out the window.
Jarrett had hoped for his team to have had a full pre-season together, played some trials and gelled as a team.
"It's been very challenging but everyone knows why we need to do it. We don't want to endanger the public," Jarrett said.
The coach said the club had a three-year plan in place and wasn't putting pressure on his side to fire from day dot.
"We're going live into a season on July 4 having never played a trial," Jarrett said of his playing group.
"One of my big focuses is on how we hold ourselves and our attitudes on the field.
"We have a three-year plan. Part of the plan is to to be able to play a style I'd like us to play and we're not going to get that without game experience.
"Realistically, there's three years to answer those big questions. Three years to see if we're going to be competitive or not."
With the July 4 start date fast approaching, the buzz at the club was building, president Gary Johnson said.
"Everyone's so excited," he said.
"From Premier League to juniors - especially the juniors."
Kootingal will have 30 teams across all ages and grades this year. A number Johnson said the club was "really happy with".
The president also said the Premier League players would be decked out in a new strip and thought they'd hold their own in the top grade.
"We thought we'd pick one club to be better than but looking at who has signed up, we're pretty happy that we're going to be quite competitive," Johnson said.
