Redbacks FC has a strict ‘No Pay – No Play’ policy. Player ID cards will NOT be issued until full fee payment has been received. All-Age, Over 35 and Over 45 teams will be registered with their respective associations only when the Club receives full payment from sufficient players to form a team.

Photographs for Player ID Cards

Photos are valid for 3 years for juniors and 5 years for seniors. If you had your digital photo taken within this time it will not need to be updated this year.

Parents are advised via email or phone of the team their child has been allocated to, and initial training dates. Weekly training commences in March, at a time suitable for the individual team coaches.

Grading & Team Allocations – U8’s

U8’s Small Sided Games will play a 7v7 format in 2017. The top team will be graded, whilst all other teams will be ranked according to their approximate skills, so that teams play similar standard teams during the season.

All U8 players need to attend these sessions so that team allocations can be finalised efficiently.

Grading – Juniors - U8 to U17

The Club will grade teams in 2017 over a 2 week period, commencing on February 12th 2017 and finishing February 19th 2017 (note, womens only league teams need to attend on the 19th only). The Grading Committee will grade players based on performance in group training sessions held for each age division on the following days:

  • U8 and U9 Sunday 8am to 9:30am
  • U10 and U11 and U12 and U13 Sunday 10.00am to 11.30am

Coaches and Managers

Every team requires a coach and a manager. Teams are responsible for filling these positions and advising the registrar (Parents usually fill these roles in the Mini and Junior divisions). Considerable training and support is on offer for our coaches so even individuals with no prior knowledge or experience are encouraged to volunteer to fill this extremely rewarding role. Managers are also provided with easy to use instruction manuals and excellent support from Co-ordinators, so you have nothing to fear when stepping up to play your part in yours or your child’s football team.
