If attending at Latham then cash/credit card or EFTPOS will be accepted (no cash out). Non-financial players are not covered by Capital Football Insurance and take part in allocations, training sessions and games at their own risk. Belwest requires all players to be registered online thru www.playfootball.com.au before attending any of these events.

Photograph Required When Registering Players

Capital Football introduced a mandatory requirement in 2018 that a digital photo must be uploaded when registering players through www.playfootball.com.au. If you have any issues regarding this please contact rego@belwestsoccer.com.

Under 10 Age Specific Information

Belwest starts grading 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 grading. The grading process is vital to ensure players and teams are placed in the most appropriate playing level. Whilst grading players into new teams, previous teams and friendship requests are taken into account, the key factor utilised will be based on the players ability.

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. Please let the Registrar know prior to the grading days if a player wishes their friendships groups are to be the primary preference.

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

Member Protection–Working with Vulnerable People Act

It is mandatory under the Working with Vulnerable People Act (WWVP) for all committee members, volunteers, coaches and managers to hold a current WWVP card.

You need to apply for the working with vulnerable people card via the ACT Government’s Access Canberra website if you have not already done so. Please see WWVP information on the Belwest website or contact a committee member for further information.

You will need to provide the WWVP card number and expiry date when you register as a volunteer, coach or manager and the card must be sighted by Belwest at the next available opportunity.

Merchandise and Boot Pool

All Club merchandise and the pre-loved Boot Pool will be available for purchase 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

Belwest strongly encourages teams to have at least one person (or more) per team possess a current first aid certificate qualification. To assist with this, Belwest offers a free course for anyone wishing to fulfil this role for their team. This is a great opportunity to gain a recognised industry standard first aid certificate qualification that can also be applied elsewhere.

The course is made up of an online elearning component with a test (2-3 hours) that must be completed and passed prior to the practical component, and a practical component which is scheduled for 6:00 pm on 14 May dependent on numbers.

Please complete the section when registering if you are interested thru www.playfootball.com.au or email secretary@belwestsoccer.com.

Canteen, BBQ, Latham Setup and Pack up

Belwest maintains a roster covering the morning and afternoon shifts for the canteen and BBQ. Each junior and senior team will be required to do at least one roster shift for the season.

Parents of Miniroos and Junior players will be rostered on to assist with setup and pack up of Latham each Saturday morning and afternoon.

Senior Men and Womens Teams
