Registration on PlayFootball
All persons in support roles (managers, coaches, volunteers) and players are required to register on the PlayFootball website and become financial (players only) via:
payment using credit/debit cards;
use of the Active Kids Voucher available via ServiceNSW; or
application of a Sharks Voucher issued by the club.
Players will not be eligible to play until they have been activated with NWSF. Activation with NWSF requires players to complete registration in PlayFootball and be fully financial.
Gladesville Sharks FC provides for a number of discounts to playing fees as outlined below. Discounts are effected via the Voucher System in PlayFootball and are available by application via email to the Registrar. Players eligible for discounts are issued a voucher number which needs to be applied for and issued prior to actual registration on PlayFootball. Available discounts are:
The second player within a family is eligible for a 25% discount on playing fees. The third and subsequent players with a family are entitled to a 50% discount. Note we are unable to discount payments made using an Active Kids Voucher. If a family member is eligible for another discount e.g., Team Coach/Manager, then the fees they would pay are not used in calculating in any family discount.
Gladesville Sharks FC has a hardship policy which provides for waiving of fees where warranted by difficult personal circumstances. The policy requires the circumstances to be outlined via written or verbal representations to the Registrar and are approved by the Treasurer.
In order to reflect the contributions/time commitments made, Gladesville Sharks FC has a policy of waiving fees for team managers/coaches and/or their children. These relevant playing fees will need to paid upfront and will be refunded at the end of the season once all team jerseys are returned.
For junior teams, one child per coach or manager will have their fees waived (maximum of two per team)
For senior teams, the team’s manager will have their fees waived (one per team)
Gladesville Sharks FC has a policy of waiving fees for life members of the club.
The fee structure for this season is:
Team Formation Process
The team formation process used by Gladesville Sharks FC uses the following guidelines providing minimum and maximum player numbers in a team based on the number of players on the field:
Against these guidelines, team managers can opt to have additional players beyond the maximum number of players in the guidelines on the team listing. Being a club rather than simply a collection of teams, Gladesville Sharks FC reserves the right to allocate players to teams where the number of players in a team is less than the maximum number of players in the guidelines except where a full team has been submitted (see below).
Gladesville Sharks FC is keen to have players from last season return for this season whilst also encouraging new players to register with the club. To balance these two, returning players will have priority in allocation to teams until 10 February after which priority will be based on the order of registration on PlayFootball.
Gladesville Sharks FC also recognises that playing with friends is an important part of playing football. To this end, the team formation process provides for a group of players wishing to play together, either as:
a full team (number of players in group meets minimum player number in guidelines) or;
a partial team (number of players in team is less than minimum number in guidelines)
by emailing a list of players in group to the Registrar. The club guarantees that the player groupings advised in this manner will be reflected in team formation provided that players are registered in PlayFootball by 10 February. Advice of player groupings to registrars also needs to be provided by 10 February.
Coaches / Managers
Gladesville Sharks FC provides a range of support to team training/playing, including attendance at formal coaching courses, but does not provide team managers/coaches. Team managers/coaches need to come from within team parents/friends and be identified as part of the player grouping advice provided.
