Useful Season Information!

25 Feb


Please click on the link below and scroll down to the blue boxes.  We will close registration on 31st March to allow our Grade Managers time to put teams together. The Junior and Youth season begins 27th April.

What happens once my player is registered? 

Our grade managers will be working behind the scenes putting teams together.  Each team will need a coach (or two!) and a manager (10th Grade and above). First kicks, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th Grade teams will need one or two coaches per team.  Please contact your Grade manager if you are able to help.  We hope to have all our teams up on our website by early April.

From 10th Grade and above, and there is a Mainland requirement that games are refereed.  Mainland run some excellent referee courses to please support your team by attending.  The CBR (Community based referee) course can now be completed online and is a great way to learn about the game.

If you can not coach your players team then this is a great way to support your player.

 All Div 1 teams (13th Grade and up) must have a referee who has attended this course.
