Frequently Asked Questions
- How can I register my child
The process is easy if you follow the promps. You will be taken to the Play Football site which governs our sport around Australia. Click on the link Register to Play. Your details will be saved so next year the sign in process will be much easier.
Once registered the information is used to build teams and create fixtures for the season so enrolling early every year is important so we can start sorting out teams as soon as possible.
- Do I have to register for the whole season if I am only playing a few games?
Players have to register to play. No registration, no play.
DJSC pays the same amount of governing body fees to Football Federation Australia, Football West and FW – South West Soccer Association if a player plays 1 game or a whole season. Each registration has governing body fees that have to be paid.
If a player registers and illness/injury/work commitments prevent them playing a whole season, their registration fees are the same. DJSC pays the same amount of governing fees regardless.
- How much are fees and what is included in the registration fee?
Included in your fees – are all the fees we have to pay the governing bodies, Uniform shirts, venue and training hire of ovals and club rooms, electricity, lights, Shire fees, equipment, events and end of year wind up.
- Do you offer discounts or concessions for the Registration Fee?
If you hold a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card you may be eligible for $150 from KIDSPORT. The application for this grant is not part of DJSC.
- When are registrations?
Registrations open in Term 1, usually at the end of February through to early March. Registrations are usually open for 3 weeks and registrations are advertised via social media and our website.
Please note that registrations close in March in order for the Committee to organise teams, coaches, managers, equipment and uniform pick up days before the season starts at the start of Term 2.
- What paperwork do I need to register my child to play soccer?
Upload a passport style photo of child – optional.
- When is training?
The season runs through Term 2 and 3 and training days are usually Tuesday to Thursday, but this depends on the volunteer coaches commitments who set the time and day.
Coaches commitments (usually work) may mean training is any day after school. Training times are only known once registrations have closed, teams are built and volunteer coaches are sourced.
- When and where are games played?
Dunsborough Junior Soccer Club is part of Leeuwin Naturaliste Junior Soccer Association, with the majority of games will be played in Dunsborough.
We also play games in Margaret River, Busselton, Vasse and Capel (usually one game a season).
Teams are built after all registrations are received across all the clubs, there are over 1100 junior players to be placed into teams. Fixtures are set by LNJSA usually just before the first training session.
- How old does my child have to be to play soccer?
Our Club has teams ranging from 5 – 17
- How are the age groups determined?
Age groups are determined by child’s age as at 31st December of that year, eg. If your child is turning 5 by 31st December 2020 then you are eligible to play. If your child is turning 18 by 31st December 2020 and still attends Secondary school or TAFE, then you are still eligible to play. These players are also eligible for Dual Membership if they are playing Senior Soccer for another club.
