Photograph Required When Registering Players

Capital Football is introducing a new mandatory requirement this year that a digital photo must be uploaded when registering players through MyFootballClub. If you have any issues regarding this please contact the relevant Belwest Registrar

Under 10 Age Specific Information

Belwest starts allocating players and teams from the Under 10 age group. The transition from Under 9’s to Under 10’s can be difficult, as teams and players from Under 9’s, who have sometimes played together since peewees, are often split as a result of the allocations. The allocation process is vital to ensure players and teams are placed in the most appropriate playing level. Whilst allocating players into new teams, previous teams and friendship requests are taken into account, but the key factor utilised will be based on the players ability. The allocation process includes assessing players from the Under 9 competition (if they played for Belwest) undertaken by Belwest’s Coaching Coordinator; receiving feedback from Under 9 coaches (on the provision the coach is comfortable in providing this) and via assessment at allocation days at the start of the new season.

If a player wishes to be placed in a team solely on friendship requests, this can be requested, but may result in the player playing in a lower level than their ability. If a player wishes friendships groups to be the primary preference please let the Registrar know prior to the allocation days.

Dates of the allocations can be found above. All players must be registered thru www.myfootballclub.com.au to attend these sessions.

Merchandise and Boot Pool

Belwest urgently requires a new Merchandise Coordinator

All Club merchandise and the preloved Boot Pool will be available for purchases on information day and all other dates and times mentioned in the “Key Dates” when activities are at Latham. Once the season starts, the shop will be opened from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm Saturday morning only.

First Aid Certificate – New or Refresher

First Aid is a Duty of Care to Belwest and all teams, juniors and seniors will be required to have at least 1 person per team qualified with a First Aid certificate. Belwest will only offer the course depending upon numbers. Please complete the section when registering if you are interested thru www.myfootballclub.com.au. The date is Wednesday, 17th May, 5:30pm to 8:00pm at the Ginninderra Labor Club, Charnwood in the Dunlop room. This is a night course with a workbook finalised prior to the course and is at no cost to participants.

Canteen and BBQ
