Dual-Registration applies to girls and women who are registering to play in both the Saturday Mixed and Sunday Ladies competitions. You need to ensure you have a team to join in each of the competitions, before dual-registering.
To dual-register, when registering to play on PlayFootball, select the Saturday Mixed age group as your primary registration, then follow the process through until the Invoicing page, then select the dual-registration Additional Item option to select the required dual-registration package (depending on the age group of the girls/ladies team you are joining).
Full-Time Student Registration
The FNSW insurance coverage does not provide a registration discount to full-time senior students this year, so senior full-time students will be required to pay the full senior player fees.
