Introduction

The Belwest Foxes Soccer Club runs a football program for youth generally aged eleven to seventeen. The program follows on from other programs run for younger age groups, but participation in earlier programs is not a prerequisite. Game rules for the younger age groups continue to have some minor variations to the full rules to ensure players develop their skills over the years. This program has a competitive nature, but we still aim to play in a friendly environment and encourage team work and good sporting behaviour. Our aim is to allow players of all abilities to participate and enjoy the great game of football.

2017 Belwest Registrations are now open on www.myfootballclub.com.au

Cost and Registration

The 2017 registration fee for Under 12 – Under 18 is $200 per player.

Fees can be paid online as part of the registration process and incur a 3% FFA transaction fee. Payment can be made at the information session or any grading or team allocation evenings using cash, money order, cheque, credit card or direct deposit.

All players MUST be registered before they will be allowed to participate in any game, training, grading or preseason team allocations, you have until April 30th to be paid.

How to register for Belwest for 2017

All players register online (mandatory) and we are encouraging all to pay online. Paying online is optional but really assists the club and it's volunteers. If you are able to do this please do.

Registration is all online through MyFootballClub. An information day is held at the Latham Playing fields during the registration period. Please see the 2017 Key Dates and Information for the date of the information day.

Photograph Required When Registering Players

Capital Football have introduced a new mandatory requirement this year that a digital photo (head and shoulders passport style 122px x 156px) must be uploaded when registering players through MyFootballClub. If you have any issues regarding this please contact the relevant Belwest Registrar

Games

Games are played at the Latham playing fields for our home games and at the home fields of other clubs playing in the competition. Clubs are from all areas in Canberra and may also include clubs from surrounding areas. Games are played on Saturdays with the season commencing on May 6th and concluding on September 9th.

The draw for the season is compiled by Capital Football and is available at SportsTG Fixtures and Results 2017.

Details about the kick-off time and duration of the games are in the Game Details table below. Games are played in two halves, with a 5 minute half time break. Coaches usually like to have players at the ground 15 – 30 minutes before a game to allow the team to warm up.

Training

Training is usually once a week for the younger age groups and twice a week for the older players, where fitness becomes a more critical part of the game. The time and frequency of the training is determined by the coach.

Teams

Team numbers will vary based on the number of registrations received, usually having 15 as the maximum. There are 11 players allowed on the field, and 15 names allowed on the scorecard for any one game. Players are allocated to teams based on their age group, the package they select, their abilities and the number of registrations received. Player preferences, which you can provide during the registration process, are also taken into consideration.

Equipment

Belwest provides team shirts. Belwest socks and shorts can be purchased from the merchandise store located at the Latham playing fields. Players typically wear something under their playing shirt, singlets through to skivvies are fine, especially when winter sets in. Please ensure anything visible is white only.

Shin pads are compulsory for all games and are also available from the merchandise store.

Players should also wear adequate football boots, preferably the types with multiple moulded studs, which provides a good level of stability. Belwest runs a second hand boot pool from the merchandise store.

If you wish to purchase a ball to practice with, please ensure you choose the correct size. This is indicated in the Game Details tables below.
