Is my child old enough to play?
Children can play in 2017 if they were born on or before 31 December 2012. If they were born after this date, unfortunately they will have to wait til next year.
How do I register?
Go to http://www.myfootballclub.com.au/index.php?id=38 to register. Or come to one of our registration and info sessions on Sunday 29th January 3-5pm, Thursday 2nd February 4-7pm, or Wednesday 8th February 4-7pm.
All registrations have to be done online, whether you do it yourself, or you come to one of the registration sessions. The advantage of doing it yourself is it’s easy and you don’t need to queue up. A detailed step-by-step guide to self registrations is available below.
Do I have to come to one of the registration sessions?
If you played in 2016 or within the past 4 years and are re-registering, once you’ve registered online, that’s all you need to do.
If you are claiming the full time student discount (U21/AL/Seniors only) you can register online but you also need to come to a rego session with your student ID.
If are registering with BMFC for the first time, you can still register online, but you will need to come to one of the registration sessions and bring with you BOTH (a) proof of age (e.g. drivers licence, passport, birth certificate) AND (b) proof of residency (e.g. drivers licence, utility bill, tenancy agreement). The registrar needs to sight these documents and record the document numbers
What are the fees?
Registration fees (includes player insurance) for the 2017 season are as follows:
U6 & U7.............$120
U8 & U9.............$140
U10 & U11.........$160
Student & family discounts:
*$20 discount for FULL TIME students in the U21/AL/Senior age groups (valid student ID must be presented at registration).
*$20 family discount applies to the 3rd and subsequent players registering in one family (a family is defined as parents and their dependent children).
I’m not sure if I want to register – can I talk to someone?
Yes. You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can come and talk to us at one of the registration sessions (see below).
When does registration close?
Registrations must be completed before midnight on Friday 10th February 2017. After this date, registration is subject to team vacancies and a $20 late fee applies.
Do I need a photo?
All players in the U10 age group and older must upload a photo into the myfootballclub system. This a headshot and the player must not be wearing glasses (if they need glasses to play then they must obtain and wear sports glasses in the photo). The digital photo needs to be less than 5MB in size. Photos are uploaded in the first screen when registering. Registrations cannot be completed until photos are uploaded.
How do I get a uniform?
Uniforms will be on sale at the registration sessions. Costs are; $30 shirt, $20 shorts, $10 socks (full uniform $60). You can pay for uniform pieces together with your fees at registration - just remember to bring a copy or screenshot of your payment receipt when collecting uniforms.
How do I pay?
You can pay by credit card, cash, cheque or via online banking. Our online banking details are:
Account Name: Bundeena Maianbar Football Club
Account no: 33009662
Can I request a particular team for my child?
A number of parents ask for their child to be placed in a particular team. We can't promise that your child will be placed in that team or with his/her friends due to the many considerations that go into sorting teams such as age, school grade, gender balance, experience and other factors. Remember that team sport is a good opportunity for children to learn to get along with others and interact with people they don't know so well - much like life.
If a player will be playing up an age group, which age group should I register them in?
Players register in, and pay the fee for, the age group they are currently in. For example, if your child is an U9 but will play in the U10s, register them as an U9. Sometimes players may be asked to play up an age group; if this occurs, they do not have to pay a higher fee than the age group they are actually in. Please note that playing up an age group is at the discretion of the Committee, and a request needs to be made directly to email@example.com.
When does the season start?
Round 1 is on Sat 25th/Sun 26th March.
Who will coach?
Once teams are sorted, we will advise everybody by email. Teams must select a volunteer coach and manager from amongst the team's parent/friend group.
When can I register in person?
We are holding registration sessions at Bundeena Bowling Club in Liverpool St:
- Sunday 29th January 2017, 3-5pm
- Thursday 2nd February 2017, 4-7pm
- Wednesday 8th February 2017, 4-7pm
What if I change my mind about playing?
If you wish to withdraw, you may receive a full refund before teams are submitted to the SSFA (before Wednesday 22nd February). If you withdraw between Wednesday 22nd February and Friday 24th March (season start) you can only be refunded the club component of your fees, less a $20 administration fee. After the season commences, no refunds can be made.
