Returning Players From 2017
To make the registration process easier for you, this year we will only be taking registrations via MyFootballCub. You no longer have to indicate your interest with the club, and then register again on MyFootballClub.
MyFootballClub have advised registrations will open for the 2018 season on 3 January. We would urge you to register, and pay, as soon as possible so we can endeavor to accommodate any team-mate requests you have. Please be aware, your child will NOT be allocated to a team until payment is received.

The registration fee includes fees for Football west, FFA and insurance, all training equipment, facilities, costs associated with playing and training facilities and referee fees for 13s and above for normal league games.
The Club provides playing shirts for the season, ( to be returned in good condition), and players are to provide their own shorts, socks, boots and shin pads.
Games are played on Sunday mornings with occasional games in the afternoon for older players dependent upon ground availability.
MiniRoos 5-8s participate in a combination of in-house skill training/small sided games (SSG’s) with scheduled carnival weekends with other like-minded clubs. The program is held on Saturday mornings at Carine Open Space.
MiniRoos 9-12s and 11 Girls Only play at either Carine Open Space or Sheldrake Reserve for home games and away games within the northern suburbs corridor
Juniors and Youth play at either Carine Open Space or Sheldrake Reserve for home games and away games within the northern suburbs or over the wider metropolitan area depending on the league placements, (higher leagues play full metro and lower leagues North and South zones)
We cater for players in MiniRoos Football – 5/6yrs to 12yrs, Juniors 13yrs to 15yrs, Youth 16yrs to 18yrs and Girls Only teams from 10yrs to 18yrs
All of our coaches are volunteers and since they are giving their time and effort, they get to choose practice days, times and locations subject to the availability of training space. The only way to ensure a“special” day or time is to volunteer to coach your child’s team. The Club goes to extraordinary lengths to balance teams. It may not be possible to place your child in another team based solely on the location, day or times of the other team’s training.
Where there is more than one team in an age group, players for teams 12s and above may be assessed by club officials in order to support the needs of the club, coaches and individual players and will be placed on the basis of skill level, individual needs and team requirements.
Players for teams 11s and under who wish to play in a team with friends may nominate up to two players names on their Registration form. The Club will endeavour to place players in the same team or squad but cannot guarantee to satisfy all requests. The Club will also accept requests from players to remain with the same team as the previous season, however this may not always be possible and the club reserves the right to move players across teams where it is considered necessary. The club will stream players into Competitive and Development teams at 10s and 11s age groups as required. Players in 10s and 11s teams will be assessed by the club to assist in allocating players to teams and in allocation of teams to leagues. Players in 8s and 9s age groups may be assessed by the club in order to balance teams across competitions.
The Committee understands that whilst players may wish to play in the same team as their friends it is not always possible and while every attempt will be made to accommodate players, the Committee’s decision will be final. Please see the Club’s Team Selection Policy on our website.

All players, general members and club staffers registered to a football club affiliated with the FFA (The national football body) in Australia are required to have an FFA number. This is a form of member ID that is recognized both nationally and internationally. You must have an FFA number to register with any Club Australia wide. Players that have played for Hamersley Rovers Junior FC or any other club will already have an FFA number. New players to the game in Australia will need to obtain one. This is an easy process and takes a few minutes on line. Most people won’t know their number or may not know their passwords as in the past a club would complete the registration by entering details from the traditional methods of registration. For new or renewed members please follow the MyFootballClub Player Registration Guide provided on the Registration Section of the Club website, to access or create an FFA number and complete your registration.
If you do not register with the FFA you will not be eligible to play in the competition. The Club requests players to ‘self-register’ as it is a quick process – if the Club was to register all players on your behalf we would require additional resources resulting in increased fees to cover the increase in administration costs.
Training starts in March. The first game is usually the first or second Sunday in April the last game is usually early to mid-September.
The Club provides a shirt for the season (to be returned in good condition at the end of the season). Each player must come equipped with black shorts and socks, (available from the Club if required), soccer boots and shin guards and drink bottle. Mouthguards are optional.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the season has begun we cannot refund monies paid to Football West or the FFA – these funds are transferable if you move to another Club. An administration fee will be charged for the processing of refunds. Please see the Club Registration Policy on our website
YES!! The Club will provide you with guidance and training. We have an experienced coaching group that is here to assist all coaches. Everyone was once a new volunteer, and without volunteers we cannot have a program that will be the best possible for our children.
The Club believes that everyone should play as near as equal time in MINIROOS age groups. As the ages progress playing time is guided by the Club but is overseen by the team Coach, Manager and parents. Please see our Playing Time Policy on our website.
The Club does not refuse family pets at training or match day, however we request that you keep them controlled on a lead and clean up after them. There is also No Smoking at any soccer grounds.
Once teams and spaces have been finalized, the Club will contact all new players by email to advise that your child has or has not been placed in a team. It is critical you provide a telephone number and an e-mail address on your Player Registration Request. The Club will contact all players by email or telephone if there are any issues with the registration or team allocation.
