Registration Frequently Asked Questions
The club will hold a registration help day for the Winter 2020 season (Date to be determined).
Please remember this is for help only, all payments can be done on MyFootballClub. New players are welcome to come to the club with their birth certificate and a photo will be taken on the day.
To enable us to plan for the season and meet deadlines set by St George Football Association.
The timetable of events is:
- Registrations completed before grading in mid February.
- Grading days 2nd week of February
- Teams created and submitted to SGFA by the end of February
- Trial games in mid march
- First game first week in April (season runs until the end of August)
We believe that children will get the most out of playing in a team where they play against players of similar ability. It is all about giving them time on the ball and providing a suitable challenge.
The club will continue to accept registrations, providing there are places in teams in the relevant age groups. No registration will be accepted by SGFA after June 30th.
Each age group has a minimum and maximum team size. At times the number of registrations in a particular age group will be such that it is not possible to accommodate all players. For the ages U6 to U11 and adult teams we have so many players that this is never a problem. We may experience problems with teams in the U12-U18 age groups. We recommend that players in this age group register before grading days, so we can plan for the right numbers of team in these age groups.
For 2019 the following gear will be provided:
All junior non-comp players receive:
3. Drawstring shoe bag
New junior non-comp players will receive the above as well as a training shirt
All junior comp players receive:
New junior comp players will receive the above as well as a training shirt
All Senior players:
1. Polo shirt
All players will need to provide their own boots and shin pads.
A child turning 5 this year can play in the Under 6s.
The age group you play in is the age you turn this year. So if your child turns 12 this year, then they will play in the u12. For over 35 and over 45, you must have turned 35 or 45 by the end of June this year.
Oatley F.C. encourages players to register with teams playing in their true age grade. However, it is possible for players to register to play for teams that are up to two years above their actual age grade.
From U6 to U9, girls can choose to play in mixed boys and girls teams on a Saturday or form all female teams as desired and play in a dedicated female comp also on a Saturday.
From U10 to U12, girls can still choose to play in mixed teams on a Saturday or form all female teams as desired and play in a dedicated female comp on a Sunday.
From U14 up to All Age Women, females participate in graded female only competitions running on a Sunday.
Under 6 to 9:
In these age groups we have a lot of teams. In general, we can form teams with groups of friends. Please speak to the age co-ordinator on grading day, if you have a group of friends that want to play together.
Under 10 and above:
In the older age groups there are less teams and the differences between player’s ability increases. This makes it more difficult to keep friends together.
Games are played at our home grounds of Renown Park or The Green and at the home grounds of our opposition clubs in the St George area.
- All under 9s and below play Saturday Mornings.
- Boys up to U18 play Saturday mornings.
- All age men play Saturday afternoon.
- Girl’s and Women’s comps from u10 to all age are played on Sundays.
- Over 35s play Sunday
- Over 45s play Friday nights
Training times and dates are arranged by agreement with all the players and parents, but must always be at a time convenient to the coach. In general training is one day per week, but older age groups may train more often.
