    Hi Faduma,

    Thanks for your query.
    Best thing for you to do is to register your son at myfootballclub.com.au (no payment necessary if you choose the ‘Pay at Club’ option).
    Then have him attend pre-season training at Lawn 7 at Royal Park from 5.30pm-6.30pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
    His place should be confirmed within a fortnight or so.

    For general direction, please read:
    https://mailchi.mp/42ae94b5da50/pre-season-starts-thursday (includes a map)

    OR

    Season 2018 – training begins Thursday
    Dear players, parents and friends,

    With registrations now open for a little over a week, it’s time to get into action.
    FC Birrarung will begin pre-season training this Thursday 15 February.

    Please take note of these important details, as there are some changes to the way we will start our season.

    Where are we training?
    Because council wants to protect our home ground at Princes Park from heavy use before the winter season begins, we have been asked to spread across two locations. We realise that this may be inconvenient for some families, and we apologise in advance for the difficulty this may cause. Unfortunately, this will be the situation for the near future.

    Princes Park will be used for our youngest players – Under 10 and below.
    Under 10 means players turning 10 in 2018. So anyone born 2008 or after needs to come to Princes Park.
    Training will commence at 5.00pm.

    Royal Park Lawn 7 will be used for Players in Under 11 and above.
    Under 11 means players turning 11 in 2018. So players born in 2007 or before need to come to Royal Park Lawn 7 at the following times:
    5.00pm – Under 11-14
    6.00pm – Under 15 and above

    Royal Park Lawn 7 is located right next to the State Netball and Hockey Centre on Brens Drive (see directions at the end of this email).
    Traffic in peak hour when coming from Carlton is very heavy, with many vehicles turning to approach the Tullamarine Fwy. Please allow extra time to come from the Carlton direction, or consider using Park Street to get to Flemington Road and then turn left onto Elliot Avenue.
    Or use the bike path to commute by bicycle, which will be handy as parking can be limited.

    What team will I play in?
    We are still yet to register all players for 2018. Often, teams move together from one season to the next. But since many players both join and leave the club, there will be some changes. We will work with coaches and families to determine squads in the coming weeks. At training you will meet a few of the coaches. Parents are welcome to help out, too. For now, it’s important just to get out on the park, make some new friends, and have some fun playing football.

    Can I play in a higher age group?
    We actively discourage the practice of playing children in a higher age group. Many parents ask the club to accommodate this either to be with friends, or because they feel that their child exhibits a higher level of skill or physical maturity than their peers. The club reserves the right to have an objective policy which serves to promote long term player development, ensure that squad sizes are adequate and allow equitable playing time. Skilled and/or physically mature players will still develop in their own age group. They will do this at lower risk of injury and enjoy a longer playing “career”. You can read the policy here: https://birrarungfc.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/fc-birrarung-team-selection-policy.pdf

    Can I train before I have registered?
    It is essential for players to register before commencing training to ensure that they are covered by insurance. If you are coming to try FC Birrarung, and decide to change your mind, we can arrange a refund of your registration. Do you still need to register? Go to myfootballclub.com.au

    What to bring?
    Runners only (no football boots)
    Shin guards
    Light training attire
    Water bottle (please ensure players come with water as it is disruptive to run to the taps for refreshment)

    Will I need to do fitness training?
    No. Playing football is the best conditioning for, well, playing football. The more we play with a ball, the better we get at the hardest things to master, like dribbling around the opposition or scoring crazy goals. You won’t learn that from running laps!

    What happens next week?
    We will provide more information at the end of this week, but it’s safe to assume that if you are in Under 12 or above, you will soon be training twice a week (at the same location).

    It sounds like a lot to organise, can I help?
    We’re glad you asked! If you can be at training help direct players to coaches, or collect balls, or even help setup a small game, it would be greatly appreciated. The football gods will smile upon you.

    Kind regards,
    Ross

    Hi Renee,

    The team lists are still being sorted by the registrar and coaches and will probably take a fortnight or so to confirm places.
    But I believe the probability is high that Ryder will be confirmed within that time – and then payment can occur.

    Kind regards,
    Ross

    Registration costs are about $400 for U12 and above or about $300 for MiniRoos.

  20. fcbirrarung says:

    Hi Zack,
    Thanks for your query.
    Just wondering if you could send us your full name and date of birth at fcbirrarung@hotmail.com.
    Registration doesn’t occur until February, with existing players given preference. Then players on our waiting list fill any vacancies.
    Kind regards,
    Ross

  21. Zack says:

    Hello i would like to play for the club can yuo tell me all the details

  22. fcbirrarung says:

    Also, another player would be great if you could encourage them to register at myfootballclub.com.au

    Kind regards,
    Ross

  23. fcbirrarung says:

    Hi George,

    The commitment is one training session and a Sunday match, both of which you may be able to share.
    We were toying with an additional session on Saturdays for U11s, but I’d assume that would be a session conducted by one of our three C Licence coaches.
    I can put you in touch with our coaching co-ordinator, Simon Pase, and he can explain more. I know we’re looking at hosting a coaching course at Princes Park during the season.

    Kind regards,
    Ross

  24. Hi Ross
    Thank you for the update. We may have another player if you come up short by one, plus I coached a team from under 6’s to under 12’s but that was a long time ago. What kind of commitment is required for a coach, (Training, game day, etc.)

  25. fcbirrarung says:

    Hi George, Thanks for your query. It’s not too late to join even though we are close to finalising squads. There is a good chance that a third U11 side may be formed (if we can attract a coach and manager from the parent group), so please feel free to register Luca at myfootballclub.com.au asap. We should know within a few days whether that side will eventuate. Please let us know if you are keen to volunteer your services as a coach or manager. I’m not across the coaching vacancies so it may not be necessary, but we are always looking for assistant coaches also. Hope this helps. Kind regards, Ross

  26. My son Luca Georgiou (DOB 29/11/2006) would love to join the U11’s this year. I know its a bit late but he has just decided to make the switch. Is there still a chance for a spot?

  27. fcbirrarung says:

    No problem, Janet. Positive thinking is a great quality.
    We’ll hopefully know within a week or so.

    Kind regards,
    Ross

  28. Janet Watts says:

    Hi Ross I have paid on line for Lloyd who is on the waiting list. I shall think positively and therefore no need to refund( that would tricky, sorry as I was not aware of other option to pay at club) Janet watts

    Hi Khadija,
    Thanks for your query. Please register at myfootballclub.com.au, but please don’t pay anything until we can confirm your spot.

  42. fcbirrarung says:

    Hi Kristin,

    Nothing really happens until February but we’ll put your name on our waiting list (and keep you updated via email).
    Kind regards,
    Ross

    P.S. Apologies for taking so long to reply.
