IMPORTANT: REGISTRATIONS CLOSE MIDNIGHT 17 MARCH 2019 FOR THE 2019 WINTER SEASON

New Registration System

2019 sees the introduction of a new Australia-wide registration system called Play Football which replaces My Football Club. Please note that 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 webpage. Unlike previous years, instead of using your FFA number to access the Play Football registration system you will use your Football Account. This can be created by using your email address, Facebook login or Google login. Once you have created and logged into your account you will be provided with a list of matching profiles from MyFootballClub where the email addresses match the one that you have provided. This is where you link existing profiles (yours and family members) in order to register them to play.

Player Registrations NOW OPEN

2019 Player Registrations are now open for Community U5 – U18, Seniors, NPLW, NPLY and NPL through the Play Football webpage. Below you will have details of everything you need to know and do to register for the 2019 season.

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 [email protected]prior to commencing the registration process to discuss other options.

Player Eligibility

To be eligible for round one of competition all players must be made “Active” in Play Football one week prior of 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.  The National Premier League Women (NPLW), National Premier League (NPL), National Premier League Youth (NPL 13s-18s) and NPL Pathways are all teams/programs that were selected via a trial/selection process in 2018. These players have been notified of their selection via email and have already paid a deposit to accept their place.

Volunteers Required

GUFC is currently run on a volunteer basis. This allows us to keep the operational component of the registration fees manageable for our families. We have in the past added a Volunteer Levy to our fee structure to encourage members of the community to earn that levy back through assisting at the club.  We will NOT be including the additional levy this year. However 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 head to [UPDATED PAGE COMING SOON] If you’d like to assist please contact us at [email protected].  Note: All volunteers must also be registered via Play Football.  See instructions below at Coach/Manager/Volunteer Registration.

We have many options available including whole-of-club, game day, team and player sponsorships. All sponsorship enquries are managed by a team of dedicated people.

Uniforms

NPL, NPLY, NPLWand Pathways uniforms are managed separately to registration. Information about player’s kit for these players will be emailed to you directly before your start of season. For enquiries please contact your relevant NPL coordinator to assist. Senior players are required to purchase their own uniforms. The links below contain sizing charts for Women and Men:

 Community Players U5 – U18 will be required to include their uniform shirt sizing at the time of registering as a player, failure to provide details may result in a player not having a uniform and therefore not being able to start the competition. A sizing chart for Youth Sizes can be found directly on the supplier website by clicking on the following link (or via men’s/women’s links above if required): Youth Sizes – https://www.ultrafootball.com/pages/size-guide-nike-kids-clothing N.B. The Alpha Size is the one that needs to be included during the registration process. Once you know your size proceed to register as a player with the club.  As a result of our 2018 uniform survey we will be providing jerseys only this year.  Shorts and socks to be sourced by families separately.  The fees have taken this change into consideration.
