U5-U9 Registration open until 31/3/2024

Belnorth FC Winter Registrations for U5-U9 are open until 31/3/2024.

Register now on PlayFootball to avoid missing out!

If you need help paying for registrations, please consider applying for our payment plans or the Hardship Scholarship.

A quick note for U5-U9 continuing players: Belnorth keeps teams together in these age groups unless requested otherwise, so you don’t need to let us know your child wants to stay in the same team. Only contact us, if you want your child to try a different team in 2024.

The best contacts for these age groups are:

Register Now!

Why is my child’s registration still pending?

Registrations on PlayFootball are left pending until registrations for an age group close, and teams are finalised.

Most Seniors registrations will now be approved except the very recent ones.

U10 to U18 registrations will be approved soon.

U5 to U9 registrations will be open until 31/3/2024, with registrations remaining pending until all teams are finalised in early to mid April. 

Thank you for your patience.

Club Shop

March is getting away from us, so the Belnorth Club Shop will not open until April. There will be plenty of opportunities in April before the U5 to U18 age groups start on the 4th of May.

Items that the Club Shop doesn’t stock are boots and shin pads. Please visit Rebel, Athletes Foot, and other sporting/retail stores or go online for these items.

Child Supervision

Adults must be alert to and aware of risks and hazards and the potential for accidents and injury throughout training and competition.

Ensure that there is always appropriate supervision where the change room/toilet facility is accessible by adults or in ‘public’ change rooms/toilets.

See something, say something.

Do you still have a jersey from last year?

If so, please email to organise a time to hand it in.

Buy/Swap/Sell Facebook Group

On the back of the successful boot bin, we have set up a Facebook Group to let Belnorth members, current, past and future, have access to pre-loved Belnorth gear, such as shorts, socks and other merchandise, along with boots.

Jump on Facebook and join the group ready for the 2024 season.
