The committee has been working diligently over the last 3 months in preparing and planning for the 2015 season. Below is important information about pre-season grading, training and registration so please take the time to read each point.
Pre-Season Grading, Training and Information Day
Grading for U8 to U16 girl and boy teams will commence Saturday 7th February 2015 and then move into pre-season training ready for the first match on Sunday 12th April. Please refer to the Pre-season Calendar for dates and grading information.
It is important that players attend both sessions by arriving 15 minutes before the allocated time. Please ensure they wear boots and shin pads and bring along a cap/hat and water bottle.
To assist with the grading process, we ask that all players register before 7th February as per the instructions below.
The Saturday program for U5/6/7 boys/girls and the Spiderlings program for 3 & 4 year olds will commence Saturday 2nd May. More information can be found on our web site and we encourage you attend the Information Day on Saturday 14th February at our Eltham North club rooms between the hours of 10.30am – 12 noon.
Based on previous years, both programs are very popular. We have limited spots for each age group so I suggest to avoid disappointment you get in early by registering as per below.
Information and Shirt Presentation Days
For all new parents/players and parents that have children moving into U8 from our Saturday program, you are welcome to attend the Information day on Saturday 14th February 2015 between 10.30am to 12pm. The committee will provide handouts on the day and answer all your queries.
The annual shirt presentation for all players from U8 to U16 will occur on Saturday 11th April. Please diarise the day as we expect all players, coaches and team managers to attend.
Registration and 2015 fees
Online registration for the 2015 season is now open. We ask all players to register ASAP and before the 7th February by clicking on the below link and follow the instructions and guides provided.
We require all players to electronically upload a passport sized photo onto the MyFootballClub registration data base, so please ensure you have it ready. If you have already uploaded a photo there is no need to do it again.
We only accept credit card payments at the end of the registration process, so until payment is made, your spot in the team is not secured. Thus we encourage that you finalise payment at the conclusion of the registration process.
In setting the 2015 fees, the committee deliberates the fee structure ensuring any increases are justified and minimised.
For 2015 we have set fees after taking into account increases in council pitch rental cost, utility costs, coaching fees/accrditation and overall increase in uniform and equipment costs. These increases have had an impact on our budget and to ensure we remain financially viable and provide a professional sporting environment for players at all levels, the committee has agreed on the following fee structure.
|Age Group / Grade
|Saturday Program – U5-U7 girls and boys
|Miniroos U8-U11 girls and boys
|Junior girls and boys U12 – U18
|Senior Women / Men
|Big Kidz Social Program
The above fee is an annual fee and there are no other fees to pay. If you interested in what you get for the fees, please refer to the FAQ.
Over the off-season the club has designed a limited range of 2015 merchandise just for club members. This merchandise is in addition to the player apparel that is already included as part of your registration packages and is ideal for both players and supporters. It can be ordered through the MyFootballClub registration process – just click on “Purchase additional items” on the payment screen in the registration system. Note that once ordered, we cannot change items or give refunds as the items are made to order, so please select sizing carefully.
On behalf of the committee, I want to wish everyone the very best for the 2015 season and I look forward in catching up soon.
