Majura FC Registrations are Open for 2019
Welcome to another season of football with friends at Majura FC. We are a community club run largely by volunteers. We value inclusiveness and participation. We want all our players to develop football skills that will enable them to enjoy the game for life no matter what level they play. We hope that you will enjoy your time at Majura FC and welcome feedback and help at any time. The information below provides an outline of what is involved when you decide to register with Majura FC. More information can be found on the Majura FC website and Facebook page. If you have any questions email Majura FC Administration Officer.

There is a new Australia wide registration system this season called Play Football which allows a new mobile optimised user experience, you can register multiple individuals from a single account, allowing you to register and manage your whole family from a single login. All participants will login with their Football Account and can use Facebook or Google logins as well as email, so you no longer need your FFA number to login. Registration instructions are provided at the end of this document.
If you are unable to register online at home, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange for you to register. There is an Information Day on Saturday February 9 from 9.00am – 12 noon where you can come and ask questions and register if you can’t do that at home online.
It is important to register early so as not to miss out on a team placement. Once teams fill, which can be by early in March, we put players on waiting lists. We need to ensure we have the following number of players per team per age group:
- U6/7: 5 – 7 players per team
- U8–U9: 9 – 10 players per team
- U10–U11: 11 – 12 players per team
- U12–Masters: 14 – 16 players per team
If we have full teams (and/or have reached venue capacity) and think it is unlikely we will get enough players to make another full team, then we need to close that age groups registrations. We will always try to place players in a team but occasionally this is not possible.
Age Groups and Registration Fees for 2019
Registration fees for all junior players are the same as last season with no fee increases for the past two years. Majura FC recommends that all players play in their own age group however the club does allow players to play up a year. Girls playing in open or mixed gender teams may play for a team in an age group that is one chronological year below their actual age. If you wish to play in an age group and the registration system doesn’t allow it, then please contact Majura FC Administration Officer.

The Junior League competition runs for 16 rounds from Saturday May 4 to Saturday September 7. For U16-U18 competitions there are also Grand Finals on September 14. This season there will be games on the long weekends (May 25 and June 8) and a three-week break over July school holidays (July 6, 13 and 20). For Majura players in U5 to U9 age groups all games are held at Dickson Playing Fields. The competitions are intra-club and organised by Majura FC. Competitions are non-competitive and there is no grading. Players are encouraged to play with friends. Although we have teams from other clubs sometimes joining in, the majority of teams are Majura teams.
From Under 10 through to Seniors the competitions become inter-club run by the Capital Football. Teams play other clubs in the Canberra region and are required to travel to other club grounds (sometimes including Cooma, Yass, Goulburn and Braidwood). Players in U10-16 can choose to trial if they want to be in Division 1 or 2 teams. Majura has social teams in Divisions 3-5 for players that want to participate in a less competitive environment and do not want to trial. Majura FC also has teams in Women’s and Men’s State League and Masters. If you’re interested in playing in senior teams then please email Jo, Majura FC Administration Officer.
More detailed information about trialling and grading is available on the Majura website.
Game Times and Training
Game times, duration and number of players on the field are listed below. From U5 to U11, games are modified for each age group. Small sided games encourage skill development and enable players to get more touches on the ball.
Training times will vary for each team and will usually be determined by coach and player availability. Dickson Playing Fields are the clubs main training grounds and are booked every night of the week until 7pm for junior training. Although not a steadfast rule, we do encourage teams in the U12-18 age groups to train on either Tuesday or Thursday nights and U7 to U11 to train Monday, Wednesday or Friday. This way we can separate younger and older players for a safer training environment. Some teams train after school at school ovals and some prefer to train before their game at Dickson on Saturday mornings. Most division 1 teams will train two nights a week.

The Majura club colours are royal blue and white. Every player needs to wear royal blue shorts, white socks and shin pads. These are available from the Merchandise Shop at the clubhouse on game days. The week prior to the season we also open our Merchandise Shop for uniform sales. Opening times will be advertised on the website and in newsletters.
All U5-6 Miniroos receive a Majura shirt to keep when they pay their registration fee. They will need to wear this shirt to games so that we know they are a 2019 Miniroo. In the U7 through to U18 age groups Majura provides each team with a set of playing shirts for the season. We ask that they only be worn at the games and not at training. To keep fees down we budget on playing shirts lasting four years so these shirts need to be returned at the end of the season.
Under 5 and 6 Miniroos
If this is your first year at Majura FC, then chances are you have a Miniroo and don’t know what happens. The Miniroo Coordinator will send you more information once you register but briefly Miniroos should be at the Dickson fields by 8.45am and your game will end at approximately 9.40am. On arrival at Dickson fields you should head to the sign for your age or gender group; U/5s, U/6s or Girls. Girls are welcome to play with the boys but the girls competition is for girls only. There are no formal teams so each week players will be sorted into teams with a game leader. The game leaders will run a skill session to start which is then followed by a game. We welcome parents who would like to help supervising Miniroo games each Saturday.
U6 players (born in 2013) can play in either Miniroos or the U6/7 competition. The difference is that in the U6/7 competition players are allocated to a team for the season, and play against other Majura teams in a 4v4 competition. Ideally each team has 6 players, with any 4 players on the field at any one time. If your child has not previously played football we encourage your child to participate in the Miniroo program which has a stronger focus on skills development. Please contact the club on email@example.com if you’d like to discuss which option is best for your child.
Helping Out at Majura FC
Majura FC is a community club run largely by volunteers. The club is you, every player, parent and carer. We ask everyone to do a little bit to help out. Majura FC is able to keep registration fees to a minimum by supplementing fees with proceeds from the canteen and BBQ. Teams in the U6/7 – U18 age group can expect to be rostered to carry out BBQ, canteen, set up duty or pack up duty. This duty is not arduous and normally only happens once a year. It is expected that one parent for every child in the team will attend to assist with the duties.
Coaches, managers, age group coordinators and committee members are all volunteers. Please show them respect and thank them for the work they do for our children so they can play football each week. Consider volunteering yourself – there is always a job that needs doing at Majura FC.
