Play Football at ERFC in 2018

Season 2018: Trials and Registration Information

Registrations for Eltham Redbacks FC for Season 2018 are now open through the FFA's registration portal MyFootballClub.

The club asks that you read through the information in the headings below and Guide to Player Registration below left before proceeding to MyFootballClub. We strongly recommend you keep the Guide open in your browser as you register as it clarifies many of common problems our members encounter. Should you have any further questions about registration read the FAQ document below right.

Members are reminded to register children for the age group they are turning (or have turned) during 2018. To simplify: 

All children register in the age group listed above even if they are selected to play for a team in an older age group. 



Trials are a requirement for players in the U8 to U18 age groups as they help us sort the significant number of boys and girls into teams for the new season. This ensures each and every player plays in a squad most appropriate for their level of experience and ability. Check the trial schedule by clicking the red button below left and ensure the instructions at the top of the page are followed. We do not take players at our club who have not trialled with us.


Schedule of Fees

Please find the registration fees for Season 2018 listed below.

Our registration fees are all inclusive and go towards club uniform (shorts, socks, jacket), referees fees, FFV team entry fee, player insurance, FFV player registration fee, local council fees and charges, equipment and other miscellaneous costs (line-marking, facility maintenance, etc…). We do not require any other payments to play with us through the regular season.

For the first time, this year’s fees will include an away/training top for all Junior (U12 to U18) players.


Payment of Fees

The sole method of payment for all registration fees at ERFC is by using a credit card through the MyFootballClub system. Cash payments and bank transfers are no longer possible. Please make arrangements now to ensure registration is paid in full before the beginning of preseason training. A strict No Pay, No Play policy is enforced to ensure all players are insured before they take the field. Places will be offered to other traillists should payment not be completed.
