We are delighted to announce that registration for the 2020 season is now open. Head to https://playfootball.com.au/ to register!! We can’t wait to welcome you to The Bay this year!
A reminder that all returning players must use their existing FFA/Play football details when registering at https://www.playfootball.com.au/
Before you begin to register please check the table below to see what paperwork you need to supply. Missing information will delay your registration process and may prevent you from playing at the beginning of the season.
Registration Information Day
Will be held at our club house at Careel Bay on Saturday 8th February 9:00am – 3:00pm.
If you have any questions about playing with Avalon (or would just like to meet us) then come along. The uniform store will be open on this day for any of your kit needs.
New Registration Setup
This season to process the large volume of registrations there are 3 registrars.
When asked to email information to the registrar please choose the relevant registrar for your age category. This will prevent delays in processing your registration.
Early Bird Pricing
Early bird pricing discount $25, dates are the 6th January 2020 to 9th February 2020. This will be applied at the time of registering.
Registration paperwork requirements
Every player over the age of 10 needs a photo uploaded with their registration, this must be passport style, head and shoulders only. Forward facing with no hats or glasses. It should be a neutral background (avoid bright backgrounds as it makes faces appear dark). A good quality photo taken with a smartphone is acceptable.
These photos are used to ID players before a match so the players face must be clear and the photo must be recent so the player is recognisable. If the photo is not acceptable the registration will not be approved.
Photo image guideline
- Photo is a passport style image
- Head faces camera directly with a full face in view
- No hats or sunglasses are to be worn in the photo
- Photo was taken in the last 12 months
- Photo is clear and legible with appropriate lighting
- Under 5 MB in size
- File type of .PNG or .JPG
Proof of Age
Proof of age can be either a birth certificate, a passport or a driving licence. U6 to U10 all need to supply proof of age, U11+ will need to supply if they are new to the club or have not supplied the information previously. If in doubt, please supply by emailing the registrar.
Team Forming Sheet
Only one person from each team needs to complete this form. This is usually the manager or coach of the team. Bring this sheet with you to the team forming day.
If you did not play for Avalon Soccer Club last year please complete this form (link below) and email back to the registrar for your age group.
ICT form (International Certificate of Transfer)
If you have moved to Australia from another country and this is the first time you have played soccer in Australia, you may need to complete an ICT form. Please contact the registrar to determine if you need to complete this process.
MWFA Playing Above Age Consent form
If you wish to play in a team that is two age groups above your age, you will need to complete a 2+ year form.
Active Kids Voucher
The Active Kids Rebate program provides a $100 voucher towards the cost of registration for U6 to U18 players. Players must obtain their voucher BEFORE registering. For more information about the Active Kids Rebate click here . To apply for your voucher from Service NSW click here. Vouchers are per child, not per family.
Welcome to all new players, especially if you are playing football for the first time. You will need to create an account and then register to play. We always try and place all our U6 and U7 players in the same team as their friends. If you have any questions, please contact your age coordinator contact us.
All returning players MUST register with their FFA number from last year, not create a new number. The system will default to the club you last played at. If you played for a different club last season or played in a summer competition then remember to change the club to Avalon when registering.
If you have changed your email or forgotten which email you used to register last year then phone or email the Play Football helpdesk to assist you.
02 8880 7983
Registrations are based on the age that you will be on the 31st December 2020. For example, if you turn 7 anytime in 2020 you will then select U7 Mixed Saturday. To play in the U6s a child must be turning 5 or 6 anytime in 2020 and be born in either 2014 or 2015. This is an FFA rule.
Make sure you select the correct product when registering. Boys can only play in Saturday mixed competitions. Girls should register in a Sunday girls package if they want to play on Sunday.
Many teams fill up quickly and we will soon be closing off registration for some age groups. Any registrations after this time will be placed on a waitlist, pending sufficient players to create an additional team in that age group. Where possible, waitlisted players will be accommodated in an alternative age group (with returning players given priority). For any queries please get in touch with the relevant age manager – link.
Parents registering their children under the same login can obtain a family discount for the 2nd plus family member. No discount applies for the first family member, then each of the other family members select from the following:
2nd family member $10 select 1st sibling
3rd family member $15 select 2nd sibling
4th family member $20 select 3rd sibling
5th family member $25 select 4th sibling
Coaches and Managers
All coaches and managers need to upload a photo and enter your working with children number. Both these fields are mandatory. Select the option Role Coach and both the Coach and Team Manager products will appear.
To be a coach or manager of a team with any players under the age of 18 you will need to have a valid working with children check before you can be issued your ID card. There must be a valid coach and manager for every team before they are permitted to play. You can apply for a working with children check here: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-working-children-check
If you already have a WWC check please make sure that the ‘valid to date’ will not expire during this season – apply for an updated check if that is the case.
