WELCOME TO SEASON 2014
On behalf of the Warners Bay Football Club committee, I would like to welcome you all and hope you enjoy the 2014 season. This introductory information should be used by all players and parents to assist with getting the season started. The registration period can sometimes be a difficult time, so if you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the committee. Our sporting pulse website link with all the information you will require for the season is http://www.warnersbayfc.com.au/
In 2014 all player registrations have to be done online by the individual player (parent/guardian) prior to coming down to the ovals. For more information including a step-by-step guide please check out the “Player Registration” section on our website
Online registrations are now open. There will then be registration finalisation days on Sunday’s 9th & 16th February from 10:00am till 2:00pm for people that are unable to pay online. Your online registration and acceptance MUST be completed prior to this day. Payments can be made online but there is a three per cent credit card surcharge. There is also a three per cent credit card surcharge if you pay by credit card at the club house. You do not have to attend the registration days if you have already paid online.
A schedule of the Registration fees for 2014 has also been posted on the club website. The fees are broken up showing how they are distributed. Please also note that a player will not be registered unless full payment is made on the day of registration.
The Club is limited in its ability to assist anyone that may find it difficult to pay the registration fee at the time of Registration. Should anyone find themselves in this situation please contact the club registrar.
