What Happens Once I’ve Registered As A Player?

We’ll confirm your registration.  You’ll need to check with your team admin about uniform etc. and then just get ready to kick off in the week commencing 12th October 2020.

Can I use my Active Kids Rebate for Summer Football?

Yes!  You can use the Active Kids Voucher (AKV) towards your Summer Football Registration, but please be aware of the following conditions;

  1.  AKV will be applied to your fees only to the maximum value of the voucher.  If there is a residual amount (i.e. if your fees are less than $100), we do not take the whole of the voucher.  The NSW state govt. retains the residual amount.
  2. If your fees are more than the $100 voucher amount, you must pay the difference at the time of registration.
  3. If there is a problem with your voucher, we can’t help you resolve that.  You’ll need to speak with Services NSW to resolve.
  4. If you change your mind and decide to de-register, you will forfeit the value of the voucher.  AKV’s are non-refundable, in some circumstances, we may consider transferring part of the value to another sport depending on when you de-register and why.  Please refer to our Refund & De-Registration policy as this is a condition of registration.

How Do I Nominate A Whole Team?

This season we are doing things a little differently allowing for a more streamlined process. From Tuesday evening the 25th of August at 6pm you will be able to register your team. Due to a shorter playing season we will only be accepting the following team numbers into each age group. Once your age group is full there will be no further teams added. Individual players do not register on the 25th of August.

Under 6 and 7 – 16 teams. Under 8, under 9, under 10, under 11 – 12 teams. Under 12, under 13, under 14, under 16, over 30 women, over 35 men, all age mixed, all age women – 10 teams. All age men – 20 teams.

Our administration team will then confirm with you that your team has been successful and your team code and name will be added into the competition. You will then advise your players to register into that team from Monday the 14th of September. If players fail to register by the 25th of September we reserve the right to withdraw your team from the competition and replace your team with a team we may have on stand by.

What Shirts Or Uniforms Do We Wear?

Each team is required to purchase their own shirt and they must be the same colour. If shirts clash we have a supply of bibs which one team will have to wear. All shirts need to be numbered in age groups U12 & above. In some cases teams are transitioning from their winter competition and may choose to wear their club winter uniform. This is perfectly acceptable as it meets our guidelines. If in the case that players have not purchased shirts that team will be supplied bibs for that match until they’ve organised their shirts.

What Sort Of Footwear Is Acceptable?

All players must wear closed and appropriate footwear as per the laws of the game.  If you are playing non competition U11 & below or Walking Football you may also wear joggers. Be aware that other players playing under 11 and below in the majority wear boots with studs and this may cause injury so all players except Walking Football are required to wear shin pads covered by long socks. This is for the players protection.
