2017 Registration Information

rego image EDITEDWelcome to Season 2017 – here’s some important information regarding 2017 registration.

Registrations open online from 1 January 2017.

How do I register?

Go to the MyFootballClub online registration page, and follow the prompts (it’s the same as last year – and really easy!).

If you are a new player OR 16 years & under (new law), you MUST upload a NEW PHOTO for 2017. Photos need to be uploaded at the time of online registration. A passport-size photo is the best to upload and must include the whole head in the frame – no shoulders otherwise it will be rejected. Remember – no photo, no registration!

When is Registration Day?

Registration day will be held at St George Maso’s (86 Roberts Avenue, Mortdale) on Sat 28/Sun 29 January and Sat 4/Sun 5 February between 11-3pm. Club officials will be available to check proof of age for new players (original birth certificate, passport or drivers’ license) and accept registration fees as well as answer any questions you might have about Season 2017. Everyone will need to collect gear that day (see below).

What if I am a new player?

You will need to attend Registration Day to supply proof of age – a birth certificate, passport, or drivers licence. This will be verified by a club official, a photocopy taken and the original returned to you immediately. You must bring the original document as photocopies CANNOT be accepted.

This is particularly important for players 6 and under as almost all will be new registrations – best advice is, if in doubt, bring along some ID. We will not be chasing you or allow these to be emailed as this caused many problems last year.

I want to register as a student – what do I need to do?

Student registrations will NOT be approved unless you provide proof (for example a print of your 2017 enrolment or a valid 2017 student card). This means you will need to turn up to Registration Day. Again, we will not be chasing you!

If I registered online do I need to attend Registration Day?

  • YES! EVERY registered player needs to turn up to collect the new 2017 playing gear.
  • All NEW players must come to have their proof of age confirmed and collect gear.
  • All STUDENT registrations need to come to show ID.
  • EXISTING players need to come to pay registration fees, receive family discounts and collect 2017 gear.

What do I need to bring to Registration Day?

If you are a NEW player and have not registered to play football before, you will need to bring the following with you:

  • the ORIGINAL copy of your birth certificate, passport or Driver’s License
  • registration fees (if not paid online).
  • a copy of your online registration

Please note you MUST REGISTER ONLINE before you turn up (otherwise we will send you home to register as we cannot do it for you).

How can I pay my registration fees?

Registration fees may be paid online when registering (note this attracts a 3% transaction fee for third party management to the FFA, NOT to our club!). Just follow the instructions.

You can also pay by cash or EFTPOS on Registration Day.

How much are the fees?

2017 Registration fees are as follows:

  • U6 $155
  • U7 $160
  • U8 $165
  • U9 $170
  • U10 $180

  • Life Member / Playing Life Member $170
  • Students still studying aged 19-23 $270

All players receive new training shorts, socks, and a water bottle.  All kids aged between 6-9 and NEW players aged between 10-12 will also receive a ball.  Plus all new registered players receive a new training shirt and a bag. You MUST come to Registration Day to collect your gear in person.

We also hold our wonderful Junior and Senior Presentation events at the end of the season, and several other social activities throughout the season.

What is the family discount?

We offer discounts for families as follows:

  • $20 for second playing member
  • $50 for third
  • $100 for fourth (maximum)

To receive the family discount you MUST attend Registration Day and get a refund (if you paid online) or to pay the reduced amount (if you didn’t pay online). Please note the maximum discount for any family is $100.

What if I’m a coach, manager or RTO?

This year again ALL coaches, managers and RTOs will also need to register with MyFootballClub. If you are a direct relative of someone in the team you are managing/coaching, you may complete a FNSW Member Protection Declaration (MPD) and submit to the club.  If you are NOT a direct relative, you will need to retrieve a WWC number from the Kids Guardian website.  More details on this will be posted early in the year.

When is my Team Selection night?

Please check our website from early February for details of Team Selection dates and times. We will also supply this information on Registration Day. It is very important that you attend so we can organise teams and get you in contact with your coach and manager. This is even more important for graded teams so that we can place you in a team of similar ability.

A final word

Remember, even if you have registered and paid this doesn’t mean you are able to play or coach in 2017 as the Registrar still needs to approve this. If we don’t have the required paperwork as outlined above then we will NOT approve your registration and you won’t be able to play in trial matches or for the initial games of Season 2017.

Good luck and happy registering! Remember to watch our website and Facebook page for updates.
