When and where are training sessions held?
Who will be my Team Manager?
Like most clubs we rely on volunteers to assist with certain roles. Each team will require a volunteer parent to be the Team Manager for the duration of the season. This role can be shared if preferable.
Who will be Coaching?
Our club continues to develop, recruit and invest in Grassroots and Skills Acquisition qualified coaching staff to coordinate our weekly training sessions:
Our MiniRoos squads (U6-U8) are trained by Grassroots qualified coaches.
Our MiniRoos squads (U9-U11) are trained by Skills Acquisition (SAP) qualified coaches.
Our Competition squads (U12-U15) are trained by Skills Acquisition (SAP) & C-Level qualified coaches.
On game day, if a qualified coach is not available a volunteer parent coach may be required to assist with positions, substitutions and support.
All Coaches and Managers must provide (or obtain) a valid Working With Children number. More information on our Junior Coaching & Principles are outlined HERE
How much will registration cost in 2019?

What is the Active Kids Rebate?
The Active Kids Rebate program was introduced in 2018. The NSW Government issues a $100 voucher (annually) to children of school age to encourage participation in local sports. Parents/guardians can now obtain a new voucher code from the Services NSW website and use it when registering with our club.
How to use the rebate:
Parents/guardians apply for their voucher code from the Service NSW website located HERE.
Players/guardians then register online via https://www.playfootball.com.au
At online registration payment there will be a prompt for parents to enter the voucher code.
The code is checked and verified with payment then updated to reflect $100 fee reduction.
Players/guardians submit payment for the reduced amount and registration is then received.
What’s the difference between Mixed and Girls?
Our U6-U8 Mixed grassroots teams are open to both boys and girls playing together with matches played on Saturday mornings. Girls only teams are available from the U9s onwards with matches played on Sunday mornings to avoid any potential clash with Saturday sports. Female Football continues to grow in popularity and our club actively promotes participation.
When and where will my child play matches?
Our local associations member clubs are spread across the lower North Shore but generally the younger age groups (U6-U8) will not have to travel far from home. Most junior MIXED games are played on Saturdays between 8.30am and 12.00pm. All junior GIRLS games are played on Sundays between 8.30am and 12.00pm.
How are junior MiniRoos (U6-U11) teams selected?
Our club accepts players based upon optimum squad sizes for each age group. If there is more than one team in any of the junior age groups, coaches and managers will consult with the Registrar and Junior Coordinator, to ensure that team sizes and general skill-levels are balanced. We will look to place players with their friends when requested, but cannot always guarantee.
Do we grade our junior MiniRoos (U6-U11) teams?
No, NTFC prefers not to grade MiniRoos teams. Being a community club, we are aligned with the philosophy of providing an inclusive environment that promotes fun and a love of the game from an early age. Although the club recognises the importance of competing, as it teaches children the value of winning and losing, these values won’t override the club’s commitment to providing a positive sporting experience for all players, regardless of their perceived level of skill and ability.
Do I need to pay for the club uniform?
This season we are introducing a new playing kit! A new playing jersey will be given to ALL our players free of charge. These will remain the property of our club and ‘must’ be returned at the end of the winter season.
Junior aged players (U6 - U11) will be provided with the ‘existing’ shorts and socks at no cost.
Competition aged players (U12, U15, MAA, O35 & O45) will need to purchase the new playing shorts ($15) and socks ($10).
Club members can purchase additional apparel via our online shop.
