2017/2018 Season

It seems like a long time coming to write this, but welcome to the 2017/18 season.

Where: West Moreton Anglican College
When: Friday nights 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Season Dates: 2nd Feb 2018 to 23rd Mar 2018
Cost per Athlete: $65
Cost per Tiny Tot: $35

Due to school holidays, Christmas, Australia Day, etc we will start the season on Friday 2nd February 2018 when everyone is back. Since we will not be limited with finishing before the soccer season starts, we will go through to the 23rd March. The start time has moved forward earlier than our normal 6:00pm as we do not currently have lights available.

This will be a bit of a transition season with the relocation from Mt Crosby Sportsground to West Moreton Anglican College. Unfortunately athletes will not be eligible this year for the Regional Championships since they are scheduled for the weekend we will be starting.

Since this is a reduced season, we have set a one time fee of $65 per athlete and $35 per Tiny Tot. This will definitely be a one off and will return to normal for future years ($105 and $50 last year), and at this level there are no discounts for third+ athletes. There will be no Parent Participation levy for this year.

Online registration will be open shortly, we will most likely have a signon day shortly before the first night (TBC, plan is outside Karalee Woolworths on a Saturday morning), and registration will be available on the first few nights.

Thank you again for your patience during our transition this season
