Under the football West regulations, inter-club transfers are possible until mid-season (often 1st July). If you have paid at any club, the Football West and Football Australia components will automatically be carried over (i.e. you should not be required to pay this twice). If you are transferring mid-season to Fremantle City Football Club we will make a personal arrangement (bank transfer payment or through a refund). We regret we cannot help with refunds from previous clubs. Fremantle City Football Club may also offer partial refunds to players leaving to play at others clubs. This may however be dependent on costs or fees owing and the reasons for the transfer.
The registrar cannot typically help you with these types of questions.
Remember – your registration is not complete until full payment has been received. When you have registered and paid online, the player status will remain “Pending Awaiting Approval” until the age coordinators have allocated the player to a team, and then your status will change to “Active”.
For those wishing to pay off their fees, this must be done prior to playing games. FCFC players must be fully financial prior to playing games. Player registrations will not be activated until all monies have been received.
Allocating Players to Teams
The club endeavours to make registration and team allocation as smooth as possible, processing 800 junior players into around 45 teams each with the right number of players. While the Academy / NPL teams are trialled and most places allocated in October, the remaining players are sorted into teams based on a combination of what the coaches / assessors know from the previous season. Depending on the requirement pre-season grading / sorting sessions may be held to evaluate new players and check on progress of returning payers. Adjustments may be made shortly afterwards if it is apparent that players have not been placed correctly. The club has a firm policy of “player before team” – trying to place players in the best team for their ability while trying to place players with friends where possible.
Refunds and Withdrawals
Refunds due to COVID-19 (Please refer to our Presidents letter & the Football West link on our home page)
All players playing in competitions u12s and up will require a photograph to be uploaded to complete their registration. You can upload a new photo using the PlayFootball website. If you are requested to provide a photo for this purpose, the guidelines are as follows:
- A clear head photo of the player (passport photo guide lines)
- Should be relatively recent
- Should only be a photo of the player, with no other person or animal in the photo.
