REGISTRATION INFORMATION

You need to register on the Australia wide registration system, Play Football which allows you to register multiple individuals from a single account. This season fees must be paid by credit/debit card online to complete registration. If you are unable to pay online, then please contact the Majura Registrar registrar (at) majurafc.org.au  Registration instructions are provided at the end of this document.

If you are unable to register online at home, then please contact registrar (at) majurafc.org.au or info@majurafc.org.au so we can arrange for you to register.

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 in each age group:

  • Miniroos U6 – 7 5 – 7 players per team
  • Miniroos U8 – U9             9 – 10 players per team
  • Miniroos U10 – U12             11 – 12 players per team
  • Juniors U12 – U18             14 – 16 players per team
  • Seniors 13 – 18 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 group’s registrations. We will always try to place players in a team but occasionally this is not possible.

AGE GROUPS AND REGISTRATION FEES FOR 2023

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 does not allow it, then please contact registrar (at) majurafc.org.au

GAMES AND COMPETITIONS

Majura Miniroos (Pee Wees to U9) games are all held at Dickson Playing Fields. The games organised by Majura FC, are non-competitive and there is no grading. Players are welcome to play with friends. Although we have teams from other clubs joining in, most teams are Majura teams.

From U10 through to Seniors, the competitions are inter-club run by Capital Football. Teams play other clubs in the Canberra region and are required to travel to other club grounds (sometimes including road trips to Cooma, Yass, Goulburn, or Braidwood). Players in U10-18 can attend grading if they want to be in Division 1 or 2 teams. Majura has social teams in Divisions 3-5 for players wanting to participate in a less competitive environment and not wanting to grade. More information about grading is available on the Majura website.

The Miniroos and Junior League competitions run for 18 rounds from Saturday 15 April to Saturday 2 September. This season there are no games scheduled on the Reconciliation long weekend (May 27) and a two-week break in July school holiday (July 8 and 15).

Majura has teams in the Capital Premier League (CPL) competition. This provides a pathway for our talented players who are keen to commit to a higher level of training and games. The CPL season runs from April 1 through to September 2 with two-week final series from September 9 to 17.

Majura FC also has teams in Women’s and Men’s State League, Community League and Masters. The Senior League season runs from April 1 through to August 20 with a two-week final series.

GAME TIMES

Game times, duration, and number of players on the field are listed below. Games during the season are always on Saturdays for Miniroos, Junior League and Men’s State and Community League and Sundays for Women’s State League and Mens Masters. From U6 to U12, games are modified for each age group. Small-sided games encourage skill development and enable players to get more touches on the ball.

TRAINING

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 (unavailable during field maintenance shutdowns. March 17-31). Training sessions need to be booked in due to the high demand for fields. There are two time slots available; 5.00-6.30pm and 6.40pm-8.30pm. Each team is allocated half a field for training and bookings are made on a first come first served basis.

Although not a steadfast rule, we do encourage teams in the U13-18 age groups to train on either Tuesday or Thursday nights and U7-U12 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. Training bookings can be made at the coaches and managers meetings on Sunday 19 March.

UNIFORMS

The Majura club colours are white and royal blue. Every player needs to wear royal blue shorts, white socks, and shin pads. These are available from our online shop MAJURA FC CLUB HUB | This Is Football AU  or from the club shop at the clubhouse on game days. The week prior to the season we also open our shop for uniform sales. Opening times will be advertised on the website and in newsletters.

All Pee Wees 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 2023 Pee Wee. In the U6 – U9 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. This season all U10 – U18 players will receive their own shirt to keep. The cost of this has been subsidised by The Tradies Dickson who have provided financial support for the club for 2023.

PEE WEES (U4-7) BEGINNERS PROGRAM

If this is your first year at Majura FC, then chances are you have a Pee Wee and do not know what happens. The Pee Wee Coordinator will send you more information once you register but briefly Pee Wees should be at the Dickson fields by 8.30am and your session will end by 9.30am. There are no formal teams so each week players will be sorted into groups with a game leader. The game leaders run skill sessions and small-sided games.

U6 and U7 players (born in 2016 or 2017) can play in either Pee Wees or the U6 – U7 competitions. The U6 and U7 competition players are allocated to a team for the season and play against other Majura teams in a 4v4 competition. Ideally each team has 6-7 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 Pee Wee program which has a stronger focus on skills development. Please contact the club on info@majurafc.org.au if you would 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. Majura FC can keep registration fees low by supplementing fees with proceeds from the canteen and BBQ. Teams in the U6 – 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.
