  • Get your Active Kids voucher number for your player(s) from Service NSW before you register

We are required to ensure registration on Playfootball of everyone who assists in any volunteer capacity, which could include field set up, pack up, duty officer, the BBQ, assisting at training etc. Even if you don’t anticipate a particular volunteer role please register as you may be called upon by your team, coach, manager or the club to help in some way throughout the season.
    Unless you are a coach, manager or committee member, the package to select when registering is the: 

    • Volunteer” package. Note that this does not imply that you are registering for any particular volunteer role, but means that if you DO help your team or club in any way as a volunteer, that we are meeting our Covid safety obligations. Working with Children Check is not required but please supply if you do have one. There is a drop down menu of different roles, please select “other” if you don’t have a particular volunteer role. We acknowledge this is an additional administrative step for all, and appreciate your assistance. 
  • If you are a coach, manager or committee member please register in the relevant package. As of 24/1 the previous combined “Coaches and Managers” package has been required to be split into separate packages. Thank you to those Managers who have already registered, and our apologies that you will need to re-register in the new “Managers” package. Coaches already registered do not need to re-register:

If you are having difficulty registering on Playfootball (once registrations open) you will need to contact Playfootball directly via the link to “Help”.

If your team is increasing in size (from U7s to U8s), don’t panic, you don’t need to find new players! There are always new players to fill vacancies or players wishing to swap teams.

Don’t forget, you need to register your child in the age group they will be turning in 2021, e.g, players turning 6 in 2021 will need to be registered in Under 6s)

Kotara South will always have a spot on a team for returning players (providing registrations are received prior to closing), followed by siblings of returning players and then new players.

As the grounds have limited capacity we must place a cap on the number of teams, particularly in Miniroos. Please ensure registration is completed within the allotted dates. If you do have any issues though, please let the club know by emailing the relevant age group coordinator. (see “contacts” on our website).

Once registered and teams are formed we will be uploading all registrations into our TeamApp which will be our primary mode of communication to club members in 2021. Please ensure your Kotara South FC TeamApp profile is UPDATED with your name and any other fields correct.
