We hope you all had a wonderful break over the holidays.
2024 is here and online registrations are now open for all players, referees, coach’s, and managers.
As some of you may already be aware, this year the NSW Government's Active Kids Voucher (AKV) program has been discontinued, and replaced with the new Active and Creative Kids voucher program.
From the start of Term 1 and Term 3 2024, eligible families will be able to apply for an Active and Creative Kids voucher, valued at up to $50. The Term 1 vouchers will be available from Service NSW from February 1 2024.
Unlike the previous program, which was universal, the NSW Government has means-tested eligibility for the new voucher program. Only families eligible for Family Tax Benefit Part A will be eligible for the new program.
Parents will be able to apply for and download their vouchers from the NSW Office of Sport’s website. Once you have received your voucher, you can then register via the PlayFootball website where you will be able to enter your voucher code to receive the discount. I have placed below a link to the NSW Office of Sport page for you which contains all the information regarding the Active and Creative Kids program.
Pre-Season Training and Registration Days:
Fee information for the 2024 Season is now available on the Brooklyn United Soccer Club website.
** Please note that we have had to increase our fees by a small amount this year to help cover the rising costs of insurance and player/team fees. This is a small increase from the 2023 fees however they are still amongst the lowest in the Association.
To register yourself via the PlayFootball website, please follow the instructions below to complete your registration as a player, a coach, a manager, or a referee.
Go to the Play Football website
Click on “Get Started”
If you already have an account, click ‘I already have a Football account’. You will then be prompted to login. This will be the information you used to login in when you registered last season. (You may have used your socials to login).
If you don’t have an account, scroll down, and fill in the information to set up an account. You will then need to verify your account via email prior to continuing through the registration process.
If you are registering yourself, ensure your name is selected & continue.
If you are registering a linked person (child) then select them & continue.
Select the appropriate product to continue and finalise the registration process.
Note: Payment in full at time of registration is now required for all players. There is no registration fee for becoming a coach, manager, volunteer, or referee, although a valid Working With Children’s check (WWC) is required for anyone wishing to become a coach or manager of a team within which the players are under the age of 18 years.
Please register by no later than Sunday 3 March 2024 so that we have enough time to allocate you to a team and set everything up in readiness for the first round on Saturday 6 April 2024.
Where do I go if I need help with my registration?
