How to Register
For instructions on how to register please click here – Registration Instructions
Active Kids Voucher
The NSW Active Kids voucher scheme will be built into the Play Football registration system, the Voucher/Coupon section will appear on the “Payment” screen.
Participants with a Valid Coupon/Voucher will need to enter their code in the text box provided, then select ‘APPLY’. Valid Coupons/Vouchers will automatically deduct the value off the total amount.
You will need to apply for the Active kids Voucher from https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher prior to commencing their registration.
Sports Club Registration
We have removed the necessity of filling out Sports Club paperwork, and making a separate payment. We will be doing your Sports Club registration on your behalf, and absorbing the cost into our current fee structure. A fee of $5.00 per player is collected in the registration and will be paid to the Winston Hills Sports Club.
There is a facility to upload your photo through MyFootballClub, and we urge you use this feature if possible. Please ensure the photo is a passport style photo. If the photo you upload is not up to standard, we will ask you to resubmit the photo and may be prevented from playing until an acceptable photo is provided.. You will see the Photo Upload facility at the right of the first registration page (Contact Details). New players require the photo to be verified before they can play.
Proof of Identification
If you are new to the club this year, you will need to provide some form of Photo Identification, with your birthdate on it. This can include a Driver’s License, Birth Certificate, Passport etc. Unfortunately the original needs to be sighted by the registrar, so it is not possible to upload a scanned copy. You must come to the clubhouse in this case (date to be confirmed).
Dual Registration – Female ONLY
If you are a female wanting to dual registerand play in multiple teams in different competitions, you may do so for the one registration fee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to do this. Eg: Play O35L on Friday Nights and AAL on Sunday or Junior Females playing Mixed on Saturday and Female Football on Sunday.
We are happy to offer a family discount of $20 per player for the 3rd and subsequent player that is registered. The best way to receive a refund from the club is by completing the Family Discount Form and emailing it to email@example.com.
|Age||Total Fee payable|
|All Age & Premier League Ladies||$400.00|
|Premier League Men||$435.00|
A few questions I can answer upfront?
- Coaches/ Managers and Committee members will need to register via the portal. We will not open this until 1/2/2021 to allow those who need to obtain their Working with Children Check to be obtained.
- We will not be offering a payment plan in 2021. This process was abused when introduced and created too much additional work for our volunteers. You have 2 months to save up for registration, start putting away some funds now.
- Registration will be open until 29/2/2021 or until the club deems age groups are full.
- Please understand the committee will help as best we can over the registration period, but please be patient as some members may be on holidays and having some family time before the season starts. We will endeavour to answer your questions as quickly as possible.
- WHFC will cover the fees associated with paying your registration online via credit card.
- If you registered and played in 2020, HFI will be refunding a portion of the 2020 HFI fees, further details will be provided on how to claim this refund from HFI directly.
- All grading is conducted in accordance with club policy and can be viewed on the website.
Looking forward to a successful and enjoyable 2021 season.
