|Welcome to the 2021 Football season!|
Registrations are now open for the new season.
It is important to note that players have missed out on being placed in teams in previous seasons due to late registrations.
This season all registrations take place in the online PlayFootball portal.
You may need to create a Football Account but the whole process should take less than 10 minutes.
Register here to play for the Leichhardt Saints.
We are pleased to let you know that for the second season in a row, registration fees will remain the same, despite fees again increasing from the various governing bodies. Also once again all online transaction fees are included in your registration amount.
What Age Group to Register in?
In most cases players should register in the Age Group they are turning that year. For example, if your child turns 10 in 2021 then the most appropriate Age Group is Under 10s. It is also possible for players to play up Age Groups but there is a limit of 2 years.
Competitive Age Girls Football
In 2021 there will be no Under 15 Girls competitions in the Canterbury Association. This has been done to ensure there are enough teams at every Age Group to enable competitive divisions to be formed. Unlike the 2020 season, there will be an Under 13 Girls competition in 2021.
Free Socks and Shorts for U6 & U7 Players & New Girls only competition
Thanks to the Local Sports Grant Program from the NSW Office of Sport we are very pleased to offer free socks and shorts to U6 & U7 players. You will be asked to let us know your size requirements when registering.
For all other ages Shorts and Socks are available to be purchased from our on-line store right now. There is also a great range of Merchandise including hoodies, jackets and umbrellas so why not check it out today.
We will also be offering a Girls only Under6/7 competition for the first time in 2021 so are hoping to have enough players for at least 4 teams.
NSW Government Active Kids rebate
All junior players who intend to use the $100 Active Kids Rebate will need to have their voucher number ready before registering online as the amount will be deducted automatically from their Rego Fees.
To receive the rebate, please register on the link below – https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher
The NSW Government will provide a $100 voucher to parents/guardians of school enrolled children (5 – 18 years’ old).
Registrations after the 31st of January are considered late Registrations.
Late registrations will only be accepted in age groups or teams that have space.
If you are registering for All Age, O35 or O45 Mens’ teams it is strongly advised that you register before the 31st of January as these Age Groups fill very fast.
Registering as a Coach or Manager
If parents/players are planning to register as a Coach or Manager it is helpful if you could also do this at the same time as they register themselves or their child(ren) through the online rego system.
All volunteer Coaches and Managers of Junior teams will need a valid Working with Children Check.
Grading and Team Formation 2021
Grading generally applies to age groups from Under 8 and older where there are sufficient number of players wishing to grade. Grading of registered players will take place over two weeks beginning 2nd of February and eligible players should attend both weeks. Details can be found on the club website.
The grading process ensures players are in teams with others of a similar standard, as well as helping to select the players for the highest graded team(s) in each age group. It is therefore requested that new players attend the trials, however grading is not compulsory.
