I'm looking for a team / Our team is looking for players
For those new to the club or are seeking a team, please join our online Facebook group via this link where you can find a team for your child or advertise that you need a player to join yours.
I've registered, now what?
– Each team will also need to nominate a coach and manager who will be your communication point throughout the year to keep you across everything you need to know.
– Teams cannot be formed without a coach or manager.
The next step is to submit your team or attend our team allocation session should it be necessary.^
– For the teams that have already organised a coach, manager and players, you will be able to register your team via the team allocation form below:
* NEW IN 2024 – Player wishing to be U8 Whales (Advanced) will need to be graded. For teams who wish to grade as an advanced team, need to contact the Club Captain.
^ In 2022, the the team allocation process was streamlined to make it easier for our members. If all teams are finalised or close to complete, then the remaining will be completed by our registrar team
We're super keen to train in Preseason. What are our options?
Central Coast Council generally handover our grounds 1-2 weeks before season starts meaning that you will need to find a small space until our grounds become available. Please email us here for hire options
When does the Season Start?
The 2024 season starts on the weekend of April 6. You will be notified of game venue or time by your coach or manager, however, you can also check the Central Coast Football MyCompApp once the draw is released. It is important that coaches and managers check the draw every Friday PM in case of changes.
It’s worth noting that school holidays does not means no football. Keep an eye on the draw before planning to go away.
Where and when do we train?
Typically, training will take place Tuesday and Thursday depending on coach availability, team availability and ground availability. Once the season starts, teams training outside of TUFC venues MUST inform the club secretary. Keep an eye on the website for info on days and grounds.
Where will my games be played?
Our home grounds for U5-U8 may be split between Duffys Oval and an alternate venue. Check your draw upon its release in late March. Away grounds can be located on the Central Coast Football website.
What do I need to know about Referees?
All games in the U5-U11 grades will be refereed by a Junior Cadet who will be in some cases not much older than the players. It is imperative that all coaches and parents are encouraging and nurturing of these young people. If you run into any issues, a team representative should give feedback to the official table at Duffys (or at an away game if applicable). Under no circumstances should a coach or parent approach a referee.
In the event that a referee can not be rostered on, it is the home team’s responsibility to ref the game and we ask that a parent volunteer so that your coach can do their role without distraction.
I'm a New Coach or Manager, what do I need to know?
It is really important that if you are coach or manager, you attend the Coaches and Manager’s meetings, particularly the first one for the season as lots of important information is given out during this meeting. This meeting is set for insert date. If you can’t attend, please arrange a parent to represent your team and convey message back to you. We will often hear of coaches and managers stating they didn’t know about an important piece of info and more often than not it’s those teams that don’t attend our meetings.
It is also really important to notify the committee if someone else takes over these roles in your team. We can spend hours trying to track down the wrong people!
It's game day! What do I wear?
When your team takes the field for the first time, they need to be wearing football boots, shinguards, club shorts, orange socks and an orange or white playing shirt.
The playing shirts come out of the team kit bag and must go back in at the end of the game and all players take their turn to take ALL the SHIRTS together in the bag and wash them, dry and return to the kit. We thank you very much in advance for doing this and taking such great care of them. They are NOT to be worn outside of the match. Please DO NOT put the playing shirts in the tumble dryer.
What Can I do to help the club?
First and foremost – if your team is scheduled on for duty, please sign up for one 60-90 minute shift. Having our club run by majority volunteer positions keeps the registration costs down, however the support seems to be getting less and less every year. We are almost at breaking point where paid positions will need to be advertised and rego costs passed on.
We are really excited to have a bussling committee in 2024, but the more people that join, the lighter the load for everyone. If you’re interested in becoming a committee member, please email here for more info.
If you can’t be part of the committee, that’s ok too! Please sign up for your team’s duty and give 1 hour of your time to put back into the club.
