Generally if you are turning or have turned a certain age this year then that is the age group you should play for. For example If you have turned or are turning 9 this year then you should be signing up to the U09’s.
However there are certain scenarios where your child may fall into a younger age bracket and wants to play with school friends in the same class. This is ok and the club and association permits this to play up a year.
Playing down an age group is usually not permitted without approval from the association.
Yes, especially if it is your first time playing or being graded. This is to ensure teams created are of equal abilities and placed in the correct divisions in the season.
We do understand prior commitments may interfere sometimes so let the club know and we may be able to add you to another grading session or we will simply rely on previous coaches reports.
There is no grading for U06’s & U07’s
Of course you can! Just as long as registrations are still open you can register online. Follow the process on https://www.berowrafc.org.au/registration/
The club will provide all teams Jerseys for each of their players. These need to be returned at the end of the season.
In order to play you will also need Berowra FC socks & shorts which can be purchased from the club house. Keep an eye out on our website or facebook page to know when the shop is open.
Outside of this you will need shin pads and boots to be able to take the field.
U6’s & U7’s miniros are very welcome to to play with their friends. To organise this please fill out the contact us form and let the club know who your child would like to play with and our miniroos coordinator will do their best to ensure they are with at least one friend.
U8’s to U11’s miniroo players are graded, you can put in a request and we will do our best to join children with friends however if one grades higher than the other it doesn’t always work. Our miniroos Coordinator does of course try hard to make sure all kids are comfortable and happy so have a chat with them on grading day and we will see what we can do.
General consensus is that your child should be 5 turning 6 to be able to play in the under 6’s competition. Kids can start earlier if you believe they would be capable to play with and against other U6 year olds.
