Important

A few important things to remember:

  • We are a big club with limited match and training pitch space. In previous seasons, we have had to close off some Junior and Miniroos memberships by March. We try not to turn players away but we advise you to register and pay early to secure your place and avoid any chance of disappointment
  • Unless you have already trialled and been offered a place in one of the Junior NPL teams, do not select this option in available products.
  • The registrar deals with hundreds of registrations and does not have ANY details about coaches, training nights, etc. If you have any footballing or team allocation questions, check other parts of our website or contact one of the section VPs.
  • If you have a problem with or question about the actual registration process or payment, the best way to reach the registrar is by e-mail ().

Playing Kits

The Club tries to package gear and playing strips to fit the need. Every year all Junior and Senior active club members will receive playing socks through their team coach/manager. Shorts are provided every second season.

In 2019 playing shorts will be provided to all U10 players and all players new to the Club. Miniroos Saturday players will receive a complete playing strip. NPL and state league kit packages are provided as part of the section levy. Junior and Senior Match day jerseys are used for a number of years and remain the property of the Club – these must be returned to the Uniforms Coordinator through your team manager at the end of the season.

Concessions & other financial assistance

Students from Murdoch University and other tertiary institutions are welcome at MUMFC. Tertiary level students (born in or before 2000) playing in non-State League teams (Socials or Amateurs) are entitled to a $100 fee discount. Student ID must be produced on registration.

KidSport will provide eligible families with up to $150 annually for each of their children aged 5-18 years, to subsidise membership fees of a sporting club. Eligible families include those with health care cards or pension concession card, or those referred by other community groups (schools, juvenile justice teams, government agencies, health practitioners).

KidSport recipients are required to pay the FFA / Football West contribution (approx. $50-100 depending on the player’s age), plus a portion of the Club fees.

For further information, including applications, see

https://www.dsr.wa.gov.au/funding/individuals/kidsport/information-for-parents

In exceptional circumstances when KidSport vouchers do not apply, and at the Club's discretion, we also consider applications for phased cash payments or Club-supported scholarships (contact the Registrar).

Health care or pension concession card holders aged 18 and over are offered a fee discount of $100. Please scan and email a copy of the current card to the Registrar prior to registration. This does not apply to State League teams.

Training Only membership may be available where players are accepted to train with a team but no space on match days is available.

Transfers

Under the Football West regulations, inter-club transfers are possible until mid-season (around 30 June). If you have paid at any club, the Football West and Football Australia components will automatically be carried over (i.e. you should not be required to pay this twice). If you are transferring mid-season to MUMFC we will make a personal arrangement (either through a reduced manual / bank transfer payment or through a refund). We regret we cannot help with refunds from previous clubs. MUMFC may also offer partial refunds to players leaving to play at others clubs. This may however be dependent on costs or fees owing and the reasons for the transfer. 

New to Football? Or from abroad?

If you are new to football in Australia, you will first need to create a Football Federation Australia (FFA) account:

If your last football club was overseas, you may need to also obtain an international clearance before you can play matches in Australia. Please contact the registrar () before registering for further information.

Which team?

If you have any questions regarding teams, coaches, pre-season training or team selection / grading, please check the MUMFC web site or contact (if applicable) your coach or manager from 2018 or the age / section coordinator:

https://www.mumfc.com.au/contact-us

The Registrar cannot typically help you with these types of questions.

Remember - registration is not complete until full payment has been received. MUMFC players must be fully financial prior to playing games, including pre-season.

Allocating Players to Teams

The Club endeavours to make registration and team allocation as smooth as possible, processing 700 junior players into around 45 teams each with the right number of players.

While the Academy / NPL teams are trialled and most places allocated in October, the remaining players are sorted into teams based on the previous season and grading sessions held pre-season. Adjustments may be made afterwards if it is apparent that players have not been placed correctly.

The Club has a firm policy of "player before team" - trying to place players in the best team for their ability while also trying to place them with friends where possible. Check the website or contact the age coordinators for more information about grading sessions.

Membership Cap

Due to limited ground availability, our number of active playing numbers will be limited (2018 membership was approx. 1420). As the start of the season approaches (February-March), team places fill up and are capped: preference will be given to paid-up members (registering without payment is not enough).

If you are not fully registered, paid up and your membership activated by the Registrar, then you will have no insurance cover, should not train, and cannot play in matches.

To avoid disappointment, please register and pay early.

Photo Requirements

All players competing in competitions U13 and older require a photograph to be uploaded to complete their registration. Photo guidelines are as follows:

  • A clear head photo of the player - see examples below (the one at the bottom right is preferred)
  • Should be relatively recent (within 3 years for Under 18 or 5-10 years for Over 18)

Rego Photo Examples

Rebates for Volunteers

We continue to retain a contribution element to encourage member volunteer participation. A $50 rebate ($25 for Miniroos Saturday) is offered per player (or parent) who offers to help in a few key team positions (coach / manager) or in a significant club-wide capacity (e.g. busy bees, kit sorting and distribution, match day marshalling). As a general rule, "significant" is estimated to be around 5 hours or more. Please indicate how you may be able to help during online registration.

Refund Policy

  • For withdrawal prior to season commencement, the Club will try to offer a full refund less a $10-$15 admin fee plus costs for any Club clothing already issued and used.
  • After season commencement, the Football West & FFA fees are non-refundable and therefore cannot be passed on.
  • Full refunds will be given if players have been accepted into the Club but for whatever reason cannot be placed in a team, or for players allocated to teams which fold pre-season for insufficient numbers or in the unlikely event that a volunteer does not come forward to coach.
  • Academy/NPL levy deposits are non-refundable.
  • In the case of long-term injury or certain personal circumstances, the Club may at its discretion offer a proportionate fee reduction or refund.
  • No refunds are available after 30th June unless the player has an appropriate medical certificate

A Big Deal!

Please remember the Registrar and Treasurer are both just Club volunteers with families and jobs. Coordinating registration and payments is a big job for us from January to April. Please help us by being prompt and careful and be nice to us when we make mistakes!
