2018 – when does registration open for the Summer Football season?

The 2018 Summer Football season registration is NOW OPEN. Our recommendation is that all players register straight away. In 2018 we will have a maximum amount of teams that can register and once we have reached this limit that age group will be closed to all new team registrations. If you are not 100% sure who is going to be on your team at the 1st of July, 2018 our suggestion is that someone registers on behalf of the team to secure your position and then that person ensures that all the additional players are registered. Individual registrations are always welcome. The Summer Football season starts on Monday the 17th of September, 2018.

What shirts do we wear?

Each team is required to purchase their own shirt providing they can get 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 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. Shirts are available for purchase through our sponsor A mart located in Henry Street Penrith opposite the court house.

Can I just wear joggers when I play?

No all players must wear football boots as per the laws of the game unless you are playing ‘walking football’ where joggers are acceptable. Players must also wear long socks with shin pads. Socks must cover a players shin pads. This is for the players protection.
