Essential information for junior grading:
Our Grading Coach, Enzo Sansone is a fully qualified professional soccer coach who will endeavour to get the best result for each player that attends the Bangor FC grading. This is a difficult task, made more difficult when players do not turn up to the grading days. If your son/daughter is unable to make these dates it is important that you let the Head Coach know beforehand.

•    Players must be registered with Bangor FC in order to participate on grading days
•    Shin pads must be worn at all times during grading
•    Girls may play in mixed teams up to and including U12
•    Bring a drink bottle, sunscreen and a hat on grading day
•    Please turn up on time for the age group you are grading for
•    For U8’s and above, teams will be selected based upon the matching of players’ abilities, although extenuating circumstances will be considered.
•    Players not attending may be excluded from teams unless the Head Coach has been advised beforehand
•    If there is any information that is relevant to the grading process please let the Grading Coach know this prior to the grading date. It is highly unlikely that any changes can be made after teams are selected.

Whilst the club has a policy of attempting to meet requests to play with friends for U6 & U7, no absolute guarantees can be given as individual players abilities must be taken into consideration. The Club’s experience is that children will enjoy their football more if they play in a grade that is aligned with their ability. No one wins if a child is under or over graded.

IMPORTANT: Registration fees are non-refundable once the grading process is complete and players have been allocated to teams. This policy ensures players commit to their allocated teams and is designed to reduce player movements post grading. Any dispute will be reviewed by the Bangor Football Club Executive Committee.

Playing up one year older?
Please let the Head Coach & Assistant Coach on grading days know before your son or daughter grade in a one year older age group. If the Head Coach has not been advised about this on grading days then the player will remain in his or her correct age for grading. It should be noted that there are physical risks of playing up an age year and that the final decision to play in an older age group will be at the discretion of the Head Coach.

IMPORTANT: Players selected in their appropriate team grade/age is FINAL at the conclusion of the grading process. Under no circumstances is a parent to request their child moved to another team in a higher age group or grade. The only exemption of this is a parent can have their child move down a grade. This will need to be emailed for the request to move a player and approved by the head coach. The head coach has the right to amend teams after the grading.

U18 and above & Senior teams (Women's and Men's)
There will be no grading or meeting of teams in these age groups. Coaches or Managers of the U18 and above, as well as senior teams, will need to email the Grading Coach Enzo Sansone, and the BFC Technical Director Murray Reid by the 9th February 2020 the following information: 
•    Fill out the MS Excel team list with players first & last names & FFA numbers. Click Here for download
•    The coaches & managers names & contact details. 
•    Preferred training night & time.
•    Please include any grading requests as well for the new season.

Player Photos
All players U10 and above will need to upload a passport-style photo during the registration process. Photos should be of a “passport” photo style with a plain background, NO GLASSES or HATS. The SSFA will not accept you into a team unless your photo has been renewed as required.

Jerseys for all junior players U6 to U21 will be supplied by Bangor FC in the team kit & jerseys need to be returned with the team kit at the end of the season as per usual.

Senior players will need to purchase a jersey if they do not already have one. These can be purchased from the canteen on grading days and other designated days. Details to be advised.

Gear is available for sale at the grading days and also at Billa Rd & The Ridge canteens on match days.

PRICES - See BFC Website for details 
•    Socks - $15/pair
•    Shorts (all sizes) - $30/pair
•    Set of shorts & socks - $40.
•    Shirts for senior teams are also available at $40 each.
For further information please contact the Equipment Officer or the Assistant Equipment Officer.

Working with Children Check 
Working with Children (WWC) application must be completed by all club officials and any coach or manager of a team that contains children 18 years and younger unless the Coach or Manager is themselves under the age of 18.

Please go to the website for further information on how to apply. Bangor FC requires a copy of your WWC registration copy & your date of birth once you have had your application form processed. This needs to be emailed to our club protection officer Hayley Warren for compliance prior to the start of the season.

Coaches & Managers
All teams will need a Coach & Manager. However, for the U6 & U7 age groups, team numbers will be smaller (only 5 to 6 players per team), and whilst each team will need a manager, it may be beneficial to partner two teams for coaching and training purposes. Football NSW requires that all Coaches and Managers register on playfootball for these roles (select either “Volunteer Coach” or “Volunteer Manager” no fees applicable). This is to allow you to be correctly associated with your team or teams.
You will be required to enter your Working With Children check number during the registration process.

Training normally occurs once a week for 1 hour. If you would be interested in coaching a team, in what is a rewarding experience please contact Murray Reid, Technical Director prior to the grading trials.

There will be two coaches and managers meetings held throughout the season. The first meeting will be held at Club Central Menai, on Monday the 2nd of March 2020 at 7.30pm. It is vital that at least one representative from each team attend these meetings as important information is provided on all aspects of the season. It is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. 

Training Equipment 
Coaches and/or managers will be supplied with the required equipment such as balls, cones and training bibs. Gear collection nights will be communicated via SMS text message.

The club again welcomes our sponsors this year and encourages all club members to give the club's sponsors the first call. The club will provide advertising space on its website, as well as other promotional opportunities. If interested, please contact the Promotions Officer. 

We need referees for our Small Sided Football (SSF) matches. SSF referees must turn 13 or older this calendar year. If you are interested, please see the referee’s coordinator. In addition, we need volunteers (usually senior players, parents etc) to referee competition matches when no official referee is appointed. If you feel you can assist us, please contact the referee’s coordinator. For anyone wishing to become a Black & White referee (must turn 14 before April 1), or if you want to become a club referee and want a refresher course on the rules, the Referees Association will assist us to run our own in-house course if we get sufficient numbers. Please contact one of our referee’s coordinators if you are interested.

All club referees will be paid for the games they cover. The fee structure is as follows:
•    SSF Non-competition matches (U6-U7) $10
•    SSF Non-competition matches (U8-U9) $15
•    SSF Competition matches (U10-U11) $20
•    Junior matches (U12-U16) $25
•    Senior matches (U18 & above) $40 

Ground Duty 
Throughout the season, teams will be rostered to do ground duty. This may involve ground set up/pack up, BBQ duty or acting as ground control. Teams rostered on will be advised at least a week in advance. Please make yourself available when your team is on duty. In most instances, your team will only have duty twice in the season. This means we are only asking for a couple of hours of your time, perhaps less, on each occasion. Ground duty forms an essential part of the weekly running of the club. If a team cannot carry out their required duty, it could mean that a particular team may not be allowed to play their match.

Ground Control/Managers 
Each team will be provided with a yellow Managers vest and an orange Ground control vest. It is important that these are worn and visible at all matches. Referees are under instruction not to start matches unless both teams have provided people to fulfil these roles. The Ground Control role is to provide a point of contact for the referee for occasions such as;
  • when player assistance is required
  • spectators need to be moved back from the sideline
  • spectator crowd order needs to be maintained
  • act as a point of contact for the Club Duty Committee Officer. 

Competition Team Set Up & Referees 
Please be advised that if your team is playing the first or last game of the day at either The Ridge or Billa Road fields you may need to assist in setting up or taking down the playing equipment. This is normally covered by rostering teams for ground duty, but we would ask that all teams are proactive in preparing your fields for games and packing up as everyone involved is a volunteer. This may include setting up nets, crowd control ropes, line marking, players benches, spectator seating, placing of garbage bins, BBQ setup and checking the field for “contamination” ( i.e. dog poo).

Please be aware at certain times in the season that our Bangor FC competition teams may not have a referee allocated to cover their game. It will then be up to your team or the away team to find a person to referee your game. Above is a pay scale where our Bangor FC will compensate an individual to referee an uncovered match. In these circumstances, if teams are unable to supply their own referee(s) then the game must be forfeited.

Committee & Volunteers 

At the time of printing this information sheet, there are several committee positions vacant. The committee would very much appreciate your support with filling these essential roles for the 2020 season.

  1. Small sided football Co-Ordinator - Miniroo referee coordinator
  2. Grounds officer
  3. Assistant Grounds Officer
  4. Assistant Draw Secretary
  5. Referees Coordinator (Comp)  
  6. Assistant Treasurer

If you feel you may be able to assist with any of the positions above, please contact me directly - Brian Somerville

Coaches & Managers of U6 to U16 Teams 
All teams must have a coach appointed. The Bangor FC ask all parents to consider & make the effort at grading to help make sure that a coach & manager is appointed on the day for their son or daughters team. The Bangor FC prefers a coach & manager to be appointed on the day of grading. With some teams, existing coaches & managers may already be appointed & will continue on from the previous season.

Trial Games 
Trial games are being arranged at present. It is possible that not all teams will get a trial game, however, all efforts will be made to get at least one trial match for all teams. Under NO circumstances are trial games to be organized without going through Bangor FC Committee. Coaches and Managers will be informed as to any games that have been arranged for their teams.

Training Venue’s 
Training cannot commence before Monday the 16th of March 2020. (This date is subject to change and further information will be provided at grading)

  • Boys/Girls U6 through to U11 teams will train at Billa Road Oval. 
  • Boys/Mens & Girls/Womens teams U12 and above will train at the Ridge (Fields 1 & 2).
