Get Involved

Registrations are undertaken in January and February each year, and all players must register – including those who played the previous year. We do accept late registrations if there is room available in the age group, but the best way to get a game is to contact the club from December onwards and to watch the club’s website for registration details. The Club’s registration policy is included in the registration information sheet, which is available a few weeks before registration day.

Each year we try extremely hard to accept every boy who wants to play for the club. The only way that a boy who wants to play may miss out would be if there are too many players for one team in his age group, and not enough to create another team. In this situation the club will use its best endeavours to find a position in another team which may be in a different age group.

The only time players may be chosen on ability is during finals (U11s and above), when coaches put their best team on the field. Even then, many coaches make sure that all their players get a chance to experience the excitement of finals.

Walkerville Junior Football Club is run entirely by volunteers, and therefore the continued success of the club depends on the hard work of parents and volunteers who are prepared to pitch in and help.

There are many other ways that parents contribute – starting on match days with cooking the BBQ, goal or boundary umpiring, time keeping, carrying water and so on. Going further, you might think about being a Team Manager for a few seasons.

Perhaps you’re thinking about coaching at some stage – if you are, have a chat to members of our Football Subcommittee:
Phil Grace, 0418 819 383 or graces@bigpond.net.au

The Committee encourages all parents to remain at matches to support their children and team and actively participate in all club initiatives. If you have any questions or a desire to get involved do not hesitate to contact a member of the Committee to discuss this.
