Coaches and Managers MUST be registered via the playfootball website or you will not be allowed to coach or manage training or games.

There are several reasons for doing so but the main reason is that it is a requirement of Football Australia, Football NSW and the Shire Association. At Club level, it helps us more efficiently sort out the Coaches and Managers for our teams and it provides all correct contact information for our Coaches and Managers that we would use to contact you during the year (for example, washed out rounds, upcoming Gala Days, etc).

Registration Notes:

  1. Please register as soon as possible.
  2. Fill out the registration even if you are just interested in being a Coach/Manager. By registering, we wont hold you to that position if you decide not to do it.
  3. You will need a valid playfootball account to register. You can use your family acocunt if you have already registered your children.
  4. When you register, you will be asked a few questions. One question relates to the team you want to Coach/Manage. To respond to this question, if you are not sure of the team, just enter a player's fullname. This is how we will track your request before and after the teams are graded.
  5. All age groups Coach/Managers must register (U6-SENIORS), even if you were a coach/manager in 2019 and are continuing in 2020.
  6. If you are continuing to Coach/Manage and you don't register, and someone else does register for the same team, the person that registered will be allocated the position.
  7. If you are the Coach AND Manager of the team, please register for both.
  8. Verbal Coach/Manager requests will not be accepted but will be noted. You will be instructed to register through MyFootball website.
  9. Hand written Coach/Manager requests will not be accepted but will be noted. Again, you will be instructed to register through MyFootball website.
  10. All Coaches and Managers (those coaching or managing U6-U16 teams) must have a WWC check (Working With Children) by the 23rd March. You will need to provide your WWC number to the Secretary. If we do not receive your number by the 23rd March (or the APP transaction number to say it is under way), you will not be allowed to coach and/or manage. THIS IS A MANDATORY REQUIREMENT BY FNSW, FFA and THE GOVERNMENT.

The application for WWC must be completed online at "Application for a NSW Working With Children Check" website.

Register for Coach and/or manager using this LINK.

Please don't hesitate to contact the club through the Coach/Manager Enquiry Form if you have any further questions or issues when registering on the PlayFootball website.
