If you don't, you may be unable to play in Round 1 on 2 April.

More information about the Bursary can be found in the next section. 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 email@example.com if this applies to you.
HEATHER REID AM BURSARY Heather Reid AM is a founding member of the ANU Women’s Football Club, being the first Secretary in 1978 and a significant contributor to the club as a player, coach and committee member. In 2015, Heather’s service to women’s football at local and national levels was acknowledged when she was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia (AM). As part of the 45th anniversary of the ANUWFC, Heather has offered to provide funding for the Heather Reid AM Bursary. The Bursary will provide financial assistance for ANUWFC players who require support with paying their registration fees. The financial components of the bursary aim to ensure that financial hardship is not a barrier to playing football. If successful, applicants will have the ANUWFC component of their fees (between $130 and $160) covered by the bursary. Find out more by going to the Heather Reid AM Bursary page on our website, within the Season 2023 menu.
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. A new app, Lounge, will be used in Season 2023 for the club and each team. Find out how to access your team's Lounge, and the club's Lounge, from your coach. 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.

All communication will be kept confidential and we will check with you before disclosing the information you provide to anyone else. See the Player welfare page for more information about welfare.
