What If I or my friends have never played before?

Did you know that over 25% of people that play Summer Football have never played before. It’s a great way to get a bunch of mums and/or dads together or your mates at school so you can enjoy the warm Spring and Summer nights playing football. You won’t be judged! Summer Football is all about having fun and we will have you allocated in an appropriate competition. So…..start chatting with your friends now. If you have never played before we can’t wait to introduce you to our Summer Football format.

2017 – when does registration open for the Summer Football season?

The 2017 Summer Football season registration will open on the 1st of July, 2017. Our recommendation is that all players register straight away once the registrations are open. In 2017 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 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 18th of September, 2017.

I want to play summer football

Registrations for our 2017 Summer Football season will open on the 1st of July.

Once I have registered on My Football Club for the Summer Competition what do I do then?

Once you have registered on My Football Club you then need to go to our website www.nepeansummerfootball.com.au and fill in the appropriate form.

We will then either text or email you to confirm your team allocation.

During this process you will also nominate which region you would like to play in being either Jamison Park or Summerhayes Oval. Teams are limited in both locations so it’s important you get your registration in early.

Jamison Park Penrith

  • We have made minor changes from our 2016 Penrith Summer Football season allowing more time between transition of fields on a Monday night, giving an even better playing and parent experience. We have also allowed for an increase in playing numbers for All Age competitions on Thursday nights, meaning that All Age Mixed and over 35 Men competitions have been moved to the Wednesday evening.
  • Monday Nights – Under 6 teams kick off at 5pm, under 7 teams kick off at 5.30pm, under 8 teams kick off at 6.20pm, under 9 teams kick off at 6.50pm, under 10 teams kick off at 7.40pm, under 11 teams kick off at 8.10pm. Please arrive at the ground 30 minutes prior to your scheduled kick off so we know your team has arrived. Walking Football will be played on Monday evenings. We will be announcing the exact kick off time for walking football shortly.
  • Tuesday nights – under 12 teams kick off at 6pm, under 13 boys teams kicks off at 6.40pm, under 13 girls teams kick off at 7.20pm, under 14 girls teams kick off at 7.20pm, under 14 boys teams kick off at 8.20pm.

  • Thursday nights – The All Age Men will be allocated 6pm, 6.50pm and 7.40pm if required. Currently registration numbers suggest that the first kick off will be for all age men at 6.50pm which after consultation with All Age teams last year suits the majority due to most still being at work or finding it hard to arrive for a 6pm kick off. We are currently registering some additional all age men’s and women’s teams and we will be communicating with all age teams from Monday the 28th of August.

NB: As per last year, all kick off times are subject to slight change based on the amount of teams that register. As of the 9th of September we have reached over 1,300 registrations between both Summer Football locations. We have had a terrific response with registrations so far and some age groups have already booked out. We recommend you register straight away. If teams are to be placed in various divisions this will be discussed with your team coach from the 28th of August.

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.
