Need Help with DRIBL

If you need help with DRIBL please read the information below and if you still need help after that, please either phone or email:

Compulsory filling in of team sheets.

  • It is compulsory for match sheets to be submitted and confirmed within Dribl for all teams participating from U10 age group up to O55’s in Mixed and O40’s in Women’s. Masters teams are also required to do match sheet.

  • It is compulsory for all teams from U6 right through to Masters to enter scores for the full season through the Dribl App. Click on this link on the processes to add scores -

  • Just in regards to adding scores, if you already see a score entered simply type over the top of it and press submit, as it will record when the home and away team add their scores.

Who needs to be listed on the Match Sheet and submitting/confirming

  • All players (including borrowed players), coaches and managers who are participating in the match, must be listed as available.

  • Players who are not playing do not click as available. Please click on this link (2-minute video) which goes through processes to submit a match sheet -

  • To pre-set a players number for the season, hold down on the player selecting and a dropdown menu will appear and go to the bottom and select ‘Set Jersey Number’ and add in players number and submit.

  • Once the teams are submitted, the teams can then be confirmed by the opposition team. Please click on this link (2-minute video) which goes through processes to confirm an opposition team on a match sheet

  • Teams should not delay submitting their team if players are running late. Any players that arrive late, must make themselves known to the opposition manager/coach and match officials before entering the field of play and if they are on the match sheet. If the player is not on the match sheet, you can request from the opposition to unconfirm (if they have confirmed) , unsubmit your team and make player available and resubmit. This should all be done in the presence of the opposition coach/manager, so its all above board.

  • Any players not listed as available on the match sheet, are not eligible to take part in the match. A forfeit and possible sanctions against the manager or coach could ensue if a deliberate breach was found to have occurred.

  • Any borrowed player that is listed in the Match Sheet is deemed to have played, even if not clicked as being available. Only add players if they are certain to play, otherwise it will count towards their tally of upgrades, if applicable.

  • It is the Team Recorder and Team Reporters responsibility to make sure the teams are entered and submitted correctly. Excuses for not doing this will not be tolerated.

Is there a fine for not submitting match sheets

  • Failure for not submitting a team sheet on time (by match kick-off) will result in a fine of $25.00 per match.

  • We had plenty of excuses used last season that Dribl wasn’t working. As Body Administrators we now have better access to audits on every match sheet that tells us who, when and what was attempted and added. In short unless a team can prove that Dribl was down with screenshots of its failure, then any fines incurred will stand.

Problems with Opposition Team

  • If a team suspects their opposition is playing ineligible players, they must try and resolve prior to the game kicking off.

  • They must inform referee, who will note it down, but it’s not the referee’s job to resolve the issue or get involved other than noting it down. The only exception to a referee getting involved, is if one team insists on seeing the players of the opposition team at half way (which they are entitled to do) and it may delay the start of a game.

  • If a team suspects their opposition of wrongdoing, they must submit a Dispute in Dribl straight after the game and notify the opposition. Photos should be taken of the offending player/s in question and sent with any email from the club to support the dispute that has been entered into Dribl. Without any visual evidence, it’s very hard to prove.

Forfeiting a Match

  • If a team needs to forfeit a match, this is a very easy process through Dribl – Click on this link -

  • All forfeits should be enacted through the Dribl App.

  • Once a forfeit is requested, the Competition Administrators will receive a notification, who then can authorise the forfeit. Once confirmed all participants involved in the game, including referees, will receive notification of the forfeits.

Adding an Official

  • If a Match Official is not assigned to the match or doesn’t show and you are using a club official, they need to be added. Click here on the link to see the process involved -

  • You can also add the Match Official details of the appointed referees if the referee has perhaps forgotten his phone or is unable to connect.

Borrowed Players

  • The borrowed player rules have changed a little since last season, while some changes from last year will remain in 2023. Most notable things are:

  • Upon playing up an eighth game as an Upgraded Player within the one season, that player shall be re-graded to play in the higher grade and division they played on the eighth occasion.

  • In Over Age competitions only (ie o30 to o55), as part of the 5 borrowed players, a player may play as a downgraded player in any team (in Over Age competitions) if they are age and gender eligible. Teams are only allowed a maximum of 2 downgraded players.

  • Players registered in U16 and U18 age groups may play for their Club in Mixed and

  • If a Clubs two lowest graded teams happen to play in the same age and division, one team only may borrow a maximum of two (2) players from the other team.
