Registering Above Your Natural Age Group

Players up to and including the age of 16 cannot register to play in an age group more than 2 years older than the age they turn by 31st December 2017

Registration Questions and Answers

What is the minimum age to register?

The minimum age requirement is that your child must turn 5 in 2017. (4 eand 5 year old children play in the U/6 competition.) However, when considering if your child is old enough to commence their career, be mindful that some games may start as early as 8:00 am. This can be physically demanding for our youngest players.

How do I know which age group to register my child/myself in?

The natural age group is the age the child is turning in the current year. For example, if a child is turning 7 this year they play in the U/7 age group; Turning 11, the U/11 age group.

There are a couple of exceptions: a) If a child wants to play with friends who are in the same year at school but their birthday is in a different calendar year, the younger child can play up. b) In the womens O/30 competition and the mens O/35 and O/45 competitions the player must be turning 31, 36 and 46 respectively this year.

Where are games played?

Games are played on a home and away basis between clubs affiliated with the Sutherland Shire Football Assoc (SSFA) and are confined to the Sutherland Shire. You may need to travel in a range extending from Cronulla to the east, Menai to the west, Heathcote to the south and Oyster Bay to the north.

Lilli Pilli Home games are played across a number of different venues, primarily, Lilli Pilli Oval (The Berriedome), Glenn McGrath Oval, Woolooware High School. LPFCMiniroos Football (Under 6 to Under 11) home games are played at Glenn McGrath Oval on a Saturday, unless otherwise noted.

What day and time will games be played on?

Junior mixed U6-U12, boys U12-U21, girls U12-U15 are played on a Saturday across the Sutherland Shire. Girls U16-U21, Senior Women, All Age Men, O35 & O45 Men, O30 Women play their games on a Sunday. Unless otherwise notified.

How long is the season?

The season proper extends over 18 weeks during the autumn and winter months and does not break for school holidays except for U6 - U11 where there are some breaks in the school holidays. A three week final series for t competitive grades is then conducted after the season proper.

Changed your mind about playing .. r e l a x

Should you choose to withdraw; a full refund will be made by cheque provided the graded teams have not been submitted to the SSFA. If this submission has occurred, then it will be only possible to refund the portion of the registration fees that relates to the club component, as the SSFA does not refund its component of the registration fee.

All withdrawals are to be made in writing to the the Club Registrar via email to LilliPilliFCRego@gmail.com . This is to ensure the Club has a formal request for withdrawal complete with date stamp. Requests must be made by the player or parent/guardian of the player

How do i transfer to another club once I've registered?

Should you decide to change clubs once you have registered yourself or your child, the process is similar to withdrawing. You will need to send a request to LilliPilliFCRego@gmail.com notifying of the request to transfer. If the transfer is made prior to teams being submitted to the SSFA, we will be able to withdraw you from the LPFC registration and refund any payments made.

Once the de-registration has been approved by the SSFA you may commence registration with the other club online. Once the graded teams have been submitted to the SSFA, you will be required to provide a transfer form to the other club from Lilli Pilli FC. The registrar will supply this to you once the request has been received via email. Payment will be refunded to you by the Secretary. If a card has been received for the player, this must be provided to the Registrar of the club the player is transferring to so it may be passed on to the SSFA.

Why does the club conduct grading selection trials?

The Club's experience is that children will enjoy their football more if grading is aligned to their ability. No one wins if a child or team is highly under or over graded, so, in order to ensure accurate grading occurs, the Club conducts selection trials.

Do I need to do anything during the season?

Yes! To keep up to date with all that is going on at Lilli Pilli FC we suggest you stay tuned to the website and our Facebook page!

Ground Duty your own games In Season 2017 all teams will again be issued with ground control jackets to help share around responsibility for ground control at our home games. A detailed set of instructions will be issued to all teams.

Setup / Pack-up In addition to this, all teams will be rostered onto an 18 round roster for setup and pack away duties. These may be grounds on which you don't play and/or on days where you aren't playing at home, however you will know at the commencement of the season precisely which weekends you are required to help setup or pack away a venue. It is only with your participation that games can be conducted in a safe and pleasurable environment for both players and spectators.

Can I play football with my friends?

The club has a policy of attempting to meet requests to play with friends and has no difficulty in putting together teams based upon submitted lists of players. However the full team with coach and manager must be nominated and the club reserves the right to review and approve/deny such requests.
