REGISTRATION (including fees) As our club is affiliated with ANU Sport, there is a two-step registration process. Instructions for this process will be emailed to all successful players when trials are complete. 2023 ANUWFC Registration fees will be set shortly, but last year's fees (and fee breakdown) are here as a guide: ANU Students = approx. $310.00 Non-ANU Students = approx. $470.00 Your fees contribute to both the running of a season (field hire, maintenance of existing equipment, purchase of new equipment etc.) and the longevity of the club. The fee breakdown is as follows: ANU students Capital Football fee = $234.41 ANUWFC fee = $75.59 ANU Sport Fee = $0.00 TOTAL = $310.00 Non-ANU students Capital Football fee = $234.41 ANUWFC fee = $115.59 ANU Sport fee = $120.00 TOTAL = $470.00 See the Capital Football website for details of their fee breakdown. You will need to complete your registration no later than late March 2023 (date TBC). If you don't, you may be unable to play in Round 1 (anticipated for early April). If you believe you will be unable to pay the total fee before this date, please reach out to us at anuwfc@gmail.com to discuss a payment plan with our Treasurer. Registration is for the full season, as Capital Football charges ANUWFC for a full season no matter how many games you play. However, if you end up playing less than 3 games, you may be eligible for a refund from Capital Football and ANU Sport. Please get in touch with us at anuwfc@gmail.com if this applies to you.

UNIFORMS / KITS The basic compulsory equipment of a player includes: A JERSEY: ANUWFC will supply players with a jersey for the season. If undergarments are worn, the colour of the sleeve must be the same main colour as the sleeve of the jersey or shirt. SHORTS: ANUWFC plays in royal blue shorts that can be purchased from the club or from a sports clothing store. If undershorts or tights are worn, they must be the same main colour of the shorts. Shorts are noted as a compulsory item to be worn for matches. Ideally, club shorts consistent in colour which clearly unifies the team. Players can be prohibited to participate in matches if they are not compliant with the laws of the games. SOCKS: Royal blue socks can be purchased from the club or from a sports clothing store. If tape or similar material is applied externally it must be the same colour as that part of the stockings it is applied to. Shinguards Studded boots ANUWFC will provide some of the equipment required for game days. This includes jerseys, practice balls, bibs for substitute players, and a first aid kit for each team.

GAME DAYS All women's games are played on Sundays. Some games will be at our home ground on the ANU campus, and others at opposition home grounds. Kick off times will change in 2023, and we will update this page as soon as we have them confirmed by Capital Football. As a guide, last year's kick off times were: 10am: Divisions 3 &6 12pm: Divisions 2 & 5 2pm: Divisions 1 & 4 Your coach will no doubt ask you to come early to warm up and talk tactics, and every coach has their own preferences when it comes to arrival times. Make sure you check arrival time, and allow for travel time! NON-GAME WEEKENDS Throughout the season, there are some non-game weekends. We will add these here when Capital Football advises the season's fixtures. Games may also be postponed or cancelled due to wet weather, so keep an eye on the Capital Football website, and your team's group chat on game days. FIXTURES AND LADDERS Game information such as fixtures, results, and ladders can be found on the dribl website. We recommend you also download the dribl app for quick and easy access to your team's info!

TEAM COMMUNICATIONS All teams will setup a group chat with players and coaches. The group chat can be in any app that is safe and all team members are comfortable with. Some of the most popular apps are Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. Having a group chat is important to organise social activities, drinks after the game, and letting everyone know of last minute changes on training or game days for you or your team!

INJURIES AND INSURANCE Unfortunately injuries can happen. Please see the Player welfare section of our website - under the Season 2023 menu - for information about what happens if you become injured.

PLAYER WELFARE If something in your team or around the club doesn't feel right, the first point of contact is always your coach. If you think your coach is not able to resolve the issue, is unwilling to do so, or you don't feel comfortable speaking to them about it, please contact our Player Welfare Officers (NAMES) at training or via anuwfc@gmail.com. All communication will be kept confidential and we will check with you before disclosing the information you provide to anyone else.

CALLING PROSPECTIVE GOAL KEEPERS! We always want more goalkeepers! Even if you've not been a keeper previously, if you are considering giving GK a go part-time or next season, get in touch with us! We will run a few GK sessions throughout the season for new and experienced GKs.
