Player Registrations 

2020 Player Registrations are now closed.

 

Play Football Registration System

2019 saw the introduction of a new Australia-wide registration system called Play Football which replaces My Football Club. This new system has gone through further updates which means our volunteers have to relearn certain aspects. We thank you for your patience when using this system.

If you registered with GUFC in 2019 you will already have a Play Football log-in which you will use again for 2020.

If this is your first year with the Play Football system, prior to registering you will need to create a Football Account by clicking on My Account on the top right-hand corner of the  Play Football Registration website.

Unlike the old My Football Club, instead of using your FFA number to access the Play Football registration system you will use your Football Account. This is created by using your email address, Facebook login or Google login.

 

Payment of Player Registration Fees

Fees are to be paid online through Play Football at the time of registration by selecting the relevant package. Payment can be processed via VISA or MASTERCARD.

If you are unable to pay using this method please contact registrar@gufc.org.au prior to commencing the registration process to discuss other options. Title your email “Alternative Payment Options Please”

Player Eligibility

To be eligible for round one of competition all players must be made “Active” in Play Football one week prior to the relevant competition start date. It will be the responsibility of each player/parent to ensure they have completed all actions to be made “Active”.

In order to be considered “Active”, the player registration payment must be received in full or an approved payment plan must be processed.

Players not “Active” by the requirements defined above will not be able to compete until resolved. Coaches and Managers of the team will be notified of eligible players prior to Round One commencing.

If a player registers after the competition begins the same rules apply, however if full payment is received and registration is processed prior to Friday 12 noon that player will be eligible to play the following day provided they have been assigned to a team.

 

Player Package Registration Fees

Please ensure you know which package is applicable to you before you get started.

Pathways, National Premier League Women (NPLW), National Premier League (NPL), and National Premier League Youth (NPL 13s-18s) are all teams/programs that were selected via a trial/selection process in 2019.  These players have been notified of their selection via email and have already paid a deposit to accept their place.  These players do not need to complete their registration just yet (packages not yet available), you will be advised by an NPL/W coordinator when it’s time to finalise your registration and make payment.

For the majority of our GUFC players you will be looking at the Community packages relevant to your age group (see advice regarding age groups below).

 

Player Package
Total Package Fees
Seniors State League and Masters $450
Community U12-U18 + Girls $290
Community U8-U11 + U10-U11 Girls $240
Community U7 + U7-U9 Girls $220
Community U6 Mixed $220
Community U5 Mixed $165

All fees including the relevant fee component breakdown will automatically be displayed on the “Product Details” screen once you select your registration package.

Player Registration Fee Components

Player Registration Fee Totals* in Packages are broken into the following components:

  • FFA Fees
  • Capital Football Fees
  • Gungahlin United Football Club Fees

*In some instances, the fees charged may differ from those shown above for certain groups due to age-based fees imposed by FFA & Capital Football.

As per last year we’ve removed referee fees from Community registrations for a user pays system on game day.  See Managers Notes for a suggested approach on how to manage this within your team(s).

Payment Plans

Payment Plans are restricted to individuals or families where fees accumulate greater than $500 in the playing year.

To request a payment plan please contact registrar@gufc.org.au prior to processing player registration through Play Football with the subject title “Request for Payment Plan Please”.

Volunteers Required

GUFC is run on a volunteer basis. This allows us to keep the operational component of the registration fees manageable for our families.

As you would appreciate there is a lot of work involved in running a club the size of GUFC when means we continually need as many volunteers as possible to help out.

For more information about how you can assist please email volunteers@gufc.org.au for general roles or coach.coordinator@gufc.org.au for coaching/manager roles.

Note: All volunteers must also be registered via Play Football.  See instructions below at Coach/Manager/Volunteer Registration.
