Open from Jan 2020 (exact dates TBD)
Sign up early for $10 an “early bird” discount
There is an exciting change to our registration process this season. A new mobile-friendly system has been developed for Football Australia. The platform is called PLAYFOOTBALL.
Once again this year, registrations are completely online. The NSW Government’s Active Kids Rebate is available again this season to use against your football registration, so you have the choice to save $100 if you wish.
We have introduced a club early bird discount scheme, so you can also save $10 per child if you register before Feb.
There is a lot of info to digest on this page, but it will help you to understand the three key elements to rego:
- How to apply for the Active Kids Rebate.
- How to create a MyFootball account.
- How to register a child to play for Coledale Waves.
Please familiarise yourself with all of the information below before starting the registration process.
What is the Active Kids Rebate?
The rebate has the potential to reduce rego fees by $100 per child, if you choose to apply it to soccer. $100 is a substantial saving. For example, a Coledale U6’s fees will drop from $125 (with early bird discount applied) to just $25 using the rebate. We’d love everyone to sign-up and get active with Coledale Waves, but you may also opt to use the scheme on another sport your child participates in.
Fees for the 2019 season
Small sided games 11s and under (SSG Miniroos)
$125 with early bird discount or full rate $135
($25 or $35 with Active Kids Voucher Applied)
Competition 12s upwards
$155 with early bird discount or full rate $165
($55 or $65 with Active Kids Voucher Applied)
Step by step guide to rego
Please read the information below carefully as it’s important to complete the process in the correct order. Our online registration will be live from January 20 – allowing you to register your kids to play and apply the Active Kids Rebate in one go.
Here’s our step by step guide to help.
Step 1 Get your Active Kids Rebate.
Go to the NSW Services website to register for the Active Kids Rebate.
You will be provided with a Voucher Code. You need this to apply the $100 discount to your Coledale Waves rego. Without a Voucher Code, you will automatically be charged the full rego amount when you complete online registration.
NOTE: Please remove the character spaces when you enter it into the PLAYFOOTBALL field, otherwise the code will not work.
Step 2 Create your MyFootball account
Everyone is required to sign up for the new system. It takes less than 10 minutes and the site is secure.
You’ll need a few things: Personal information, a profile photo, your Working with Children Check (WWCC) if you’re coaching or managing, and your credit card.
Step 3 – Register with Coledale Waves.
Once you’ve created your MyFootball account you’ll automatically have the option to continue on and register your child. We have put together a step-by-step PDF guide, which you’ll find here.
It covers all our online applications for the various packages on offer at Coledale this season and we suggest scanning through the various stages so you’re familiar with what to do and when.
Our 2019 online registration is open from Sunday Jan 20, with an early bird discount on offer until the Sun Feb 3.
Frequently Asked Questions
What about family discounts at Coledale?
In the past we have offered a discount for families with more than two children playing with Coledale Waves. With the continuation of the NSW Active Kids Rebate Scheme and the introduction of our club early bird discount, no further discounts are available this season. We urge parents to take advantage of the $100 discount.
Our club motto is ‘Football for Everyone’ and if any family is experiencing financial or personal difficulties please contact president@coledalewaves for help with registration.
What age group should my child play in?
To work out what age group is most suitable for your child, simply look at the age they turn in the current calendar year. For example, a child turning 7 at any point in 2019 should join our under 7 age group.
From season 2019 onwards the club’s policy is any child registering in our U6 or U7 will be required to play at their correct age. Please read the following information which explains the committee’s reasons.
We strongly recommend registering a child in their correct age group. Children need time to develop physically, mentally and emotionally and being equipped to cope and concentrate at training and games means they’ll enjoy their football more, and so will their teammates and coach.
Starting out in the correct age and remaining there means that as the teams increase in player numbers it’s easy to form competition teams and align your child with their correct grade or even representative level football if they show real talent. Moving a child up an age group has the potential to impact on the formation of teams and could even mean a child of the correct age missing out on a spot in a team.
If you have a child in kindy who will not turn 5 during the year, the best option is to play in the under 6 age category for two consecutive seasons.
Playing up an age grade is at the discretion of age managers and the club committee. Your child may be asked to play in the correct age group in the interests of other players, the teams and the club.
Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any help or have any questions about registration or you if are unable to pay online.
