A “4th player Family Discount” applies to the fourth and subsequent family members with the discounted Registration Fee being a flat rate of $60 (early bird rate) providing the fourth member is under the age of 18. The discount applies to the youngest family members first and only applies to family members residing at the same address. Please note: There is a 4th player option to “select” when registering on-line.
All new Sutherland Shire Football Association players must present an original birth certificate, Passport or Driver’s License at the time of registration. This does not apply to Nursery Squad players. A birth certificate extract is acceptable; however, photocopies cannot be accepted. All new players will also need to produce proof of residency in the Sutherland Shire at the time of registration. The SSFA requires either a Driver’s License (unaltered since issue) or a government or financial institution document (not including phone bills). For a child not living in the Sutherland Shire but attends a Sutherland Shire school, a letter provided by the school stating attendance in 2023 is sufficient evidence.
We will have EFTPOS, MasterCard, and Visa card payment facilities available on the registration days. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept payment through Diners or American Express.
All players registered in the U21s, and older age groups will be required to purchase their own shirts, shorts, and socks. The complete uniform will be theirs to keep, so they will be responsible for replacing or repairing it if it becomes lost or damaged.
Players in U6 to U18 teams are given a loan shirt, and these will be issued by the manager of their team closer to the start of the season. At the end of the season the manager will collect the shirts and advise the Committee who has not returned their shirts. Players that do not return their shirts will be charged the cost of a replacement shirt.
Failure to pay for shirts that were not returned may render the player ineligible to register for the next season, until the payment is made. If you still have any “loaned shirts” at home please bring them with you on the registration days, as we will need them to make up kits for 2023. A copy of the Club’s Uniform and Equipment Policy can be found on our web site.
U21's and older age groups only
Shirt, shorts, socks (ages 21 and over)
These items and other merchandise will be on sale on the registration days. There will be other opportunities prior to the season’s kickoff where these items will be available for purchase at the Woronora Heights Oval Clubhouse (please check the website for further details.)
Nominations to participate as Coach, Ground Appointed Referee or to assist the Committee
The Club encourages all those interested in assisting the Club as a Coach, Manager and/or Ground Appointed Referee to complete the nomination form available on the registration days. Alternatively, you can choose to send an email to the Age Coordinator. All Coaches and Managers of U18 football teams are required to register on the play football website and must also have a current Working with Children’s Check. These can be obtained by going to the Office of Children’s Guardian website and applying for a Volunteer WWC. The Club will be promoting an intention for our Coaches to have some form of accreditation. To assist them in those endeavors we will be subsidising the cost of Grassroots and Junior License Courses that will be conducted at Woronora Heights Oval.
Mini Roos Football Referees
If you would like to be one of the Club’s Mini Roos Referees, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest. Please note that to be eligible to be a Mini Roos Referee you must play for one of our teams in the 2023 season OR have played for us previously and are currently playing in a representative team. Mini Roo’s Referees must be minimum 12 years of age or be turning 12 years of age to be eligible.
Ground Control Duties
All players and/or parents are required to participate in ground control activities which consist of field set up, monitoring completion of match cards, crowd control, BBQ and occasionally assisting in refereeing games. We expect a reasonable roll up when your team is rostered on to ground control. Failure to have enough help from your team may result in requests for extra duty being allocated to your team.
