Play with the Eagles

Teams for 2017
The 2017 team age groups range from U6 to U16. The age of players is taken as at December 31st 2016. This year children turning 5 anytime in 2017 are eligible to play. Due to FFA regulations all players registering for the first time
must provide proof of age – either by way of a birth certificate, child health record book or letter from your child’s school confirming their date of birth.


Registration
Players should ideally pay their fees in full upon registering - for insurance reasons players are unable to play competitive games and hence will not be placed into a team until registration fees are paid. Fees may be paid by cash, cheque or direct deposit into the club bank account - or via credit card using the FFA online registration system. For instructions on how to register online see our Online Registration page.

A large proportion of these player fees are passed onto the administrating bodies, such as the NTJSA, FFT and FFA; the club itself gets a small percentage, making fundraising through the year all the more important.

Fees for 2017:
Coach's children (per player) - $100
U6 and first year U7- $130
Second year U7 and older - $140


Playing Strips
Our club provides red and white playing tops for games. Parents/guardians need to provide red satin shorts, long red socks with three white hoops, shin pads and soccer boots. Mouth guards are optional but are encouraged to be worn. Shin pads and boots must be worn for all training sessions and games.


Coaching
Each year we need coaches for all our junior teams, please consider taking on a coaching role or at least a team assistant role within our club. Without the coaches and volunteers we cannot play. More parents will be required to take on coaching roles particularly in the younger age groups that now play under the small sided games rules. "Grass Roots" coaching courses and coaching and training material are available to support those taking up a role.
