Winter Season Registration

JUNIOR REGISTRATIONS OPEN ON 1 FEBRUARY DUE TO THE NSW GOVERNMENT’S ACTIVE KIDS REBATE (whereby all children from 4.5 -18 enrolled at school or TAFE are eligible for a $100 voucher to be used to reduce the cost of registering to play sport).

Please find following more information on Mosman FC, registration fees and the details of the competition for each age group.

All players who play for Mosman FC must have a valid registration for the MWFA competition.  This means completing ALL the registration requirements, which differ by age group.  Please note that all registration requirements must be completed online for new and returning players – please follow the instructions for each age group.  The club retains absolute discretion on which players play for which teams in ALL age groups, but we will try to accommodate reasonable requests.  Please remember that this is a volunteer-run community club in your communications.

After keeping registration fees constant for the past two years for those who register early, we will be increasing them this year due to a number of factors:

  1. MWFA has decided that all youth players will need to have numbers shirts (previously it was only players from U16), so we will be supplying numbered playing shirts to all registered players from U12-U18.  These shirts can be kept by the players.  Note that this additional cost is offset by players not needing to buy their own shirts from the online shop.
  2. The fees we pay to MWFA/FNSW/FFA have increased again this year (from $2-$10) and we will be passing on the increases to the relevant age groups.
  3. Club coaches have been provided for all players in U8 teams, with the costs absorbed across MiniRoos age groups.  This year we will be adopting a more direct costing for coaching in this critical year where players move from 4-a-side into 7-a-side, with goalkeepers.
  4. We have employed a full-time Coach and Player Development Manager to help support volunteer coaches, as well as junior players.  For a number of years, we have been investing in the development of our club coaches but it is important that we also ensure that those who volunteer to coach teams are provided with the training and support they need to effectively perform this important role. The costs of this role will be covered by a small increase in registration costs for junior players, user-pays programs (e.g. camps) and by the club.  We are excited that we will be offering this service to the members who give up so much of their time to help develop our young players.

As always, we will be providing incentives for players to register on a timely basis by having early bird discounts for those who register on or before 20 February 2018.  

Players wishing to register after 15 February must contact the relevant age coordinator to ensure there is room in an appropriate team.  From 21 February, all registration fees will increase by $30 per player for MiniRoos and youth players and $40 for all senior players.  The last date on which we are able to register new players for the winter season will be on or around Monday 19 June.

Any de-registrations must be submitted, along with your official player’s card and bank account details (so the refund can transferred), by Monday 19 June.

Click through the links below for the specific age group information and forms.  All age groups are defined as of 1st January each year – so an U8 child would be born in 2010, be 7 on 1st January, and have an 8th birthday during 2018.   If you are unable to afford these registration fees, please send us an email outlining your situation as we may be able to help. Please note that U6 players can turn 5 or 6 in 2018.

Payment must be made by credit card.  Please note that we do not accept cash and no club officials are permitted to accept cash payments.

  • MiniRoos (U6-U11), Youth (U12-U18) and Junior Ladies (U8-U18)    
  • Girls-only teams and competitions start from U8 but girls of all ages can play in the Mixed MiniRoos or Youth division in the relevant age group and/or have dual registration with a Junior Ladies team.
  • Registration and the competition format is slightly different for each age group:
    • U6/U7  play 4-a-side on mini-fields with no goalkeeper.  The games are “non-competitive”, so no league tables are kept.
    • U8/U9 play 7-a-side on small fields with a goalkeeper.  The games are “non-competitive”, so no league tables are kept, but teams are graded into stronger and weaker divisions.
    • U10/U11 play 9-a-side on 3/4 fields with a goalkeeper.  The teams are graded and placed into divisions.
    • U12 to U18 teams.   U12 and up play on full-sized fields in divisions with league tables and players require photo registration cards, which must be produced at the beginning of each game.

All MiniRoos and Youth junior players in age groups U9 and over who are not part of a specific ‘social’ team are required to attend the grading day in February.  Check the events page for details of the grading day and here for more information about the skills assessment process.  If you are not sure what age group your child is in, please check here.

  • Seniors.   Senior men and women are divided into all-age, over-35 and over-45 (men only) competitions, but the registration process is the same.  All teams are placed in graded divisions by the MWFA and players require photo registration cards, which must be produced at the beginning of each game.
  • Managers and Coaches.   All managers and coaches from U6 up will be issued with an MWFA ID card each season.  To receive this card, a separate registration as a coach or volunteer should be made via MyFootball Club.  You should also be aware of Mosman FC child protection policies.
    • If you have not had an ID card before, please upload a digital photo (not a scan of another photo) into MyFootballClub.  The photo should:
      • be roughly square
      • be front on with no hats, glasses or sunglasses
      • have a light background i.e. not a landscape background
      • be compressed to 30kb or less (Microsoft Picture Manager compressed to “web pages” will do this)
      • have a file name: “MFC2018 your name team.jpg” (e.g. MFC2018 Jane Beam 035/4.jpg or MFC2018 John Smith U10.jpg).  If you don’t know your team just include age group.
  • Referees.   Referees should also register online.  Click through to MyFootball Club:
    • Click the “Referee Registration” Button
    • Click ” I have logged into MyFootballClub…”
    • Enter FFA number and password
    • Check or complete your personal details, then click register
    • Select Manly Warringah Football Referees Association” in club box, “Official” in the registration category and complete the rest of the questions

Like all sports, football carries the risk of injury, and registered players are covered by a FNSW insurance policy, as outlined here, but please note that Australian Government regulations prevent insurers from covering “gap” payments, so some medical costs may not be covered.

NB: Summer 5-a-side registration is a different process and is covered here.
