  • When will my child’s team train?
    Once the teams have been registered, the team Coach will confirm the training session information. The Coach will need to submit a Field Booking Request to have an area and a time allocated for training. Coaches please see coaching FAQ's for information relating to training sessions.
  • My child does not have a team?
    Teams normally roll over from the previous year for registration purposes (except for the under 6s as they are new to the game!). If your child has a particular friend they may want to play with, please write the friend’s name or any personal preferences for team placement in the “Notes" section during registration. Age groups can expand from one year to the next, and we try our best to accommodate each individual request. In the unlikely event that we are not able to do so, we will reach out to you to discuss the options available.
  • My child's team has no coach?
    Our coaches are also volunteers, and usually a parent will nominate to coach their team. Please contact the committee via the secretary email secretary@portsaints.com.au if this hasn’t occurred. We will try our best to find a coach for you.
  • What uniform/equipment does my child need to play?
    Our club colours are royal blue, black and white. We have club shorts and socks available for purchase at our Canteen or through St. Agnes Uniform Store in Baronia Crescent, Port Macquarie. Each players jersey is provided by the club each season, and will be given to the team coach with their training kit before the season commences. Players will also need to purchase football boots and shin pads, which are available at any local sports store.
  • How do I register?
    Click on the Registrations tab and click the "Join our Team" image which will take you directly to the Play Football website. We are unable to accept registrations outside of Play Football. Port Saints FC accepts the NSW Government’s Active Kids vouchers at the time of registration, so you'll need to have these ready when submitting your registration.
  • How do I register a team?
    Team registrations are processed by our Club Registrar. We encourage you to register individually as a coach and add notes in the registration preferences section of the form. Players will still need to submit an individual player registration. Please also send an email to registrar@portsaints.com.au with the player names and ages, along with your details so that a team can be created and allocated.
  • I registered for the wrong club. Can I get a refund of the registration fees?
    Please contact us so that we can assist you further.
  • Who creates the draw?
    Football Mid North Coast (FMNC) creates the draw (or calendar of games) for the season. This is done once the committee has confirmed the teams for each age group.
  • Where are the games held/played?
    Most games are held at our Home Ground Findlay Park, where a field will be allocated to the game. The draw will also include some ‘away’ games throughout the season, which means your child’s team will have to travel to another club’s field to play.
  • How do I co-ordinate training days?
    If you are training your team at our home ground (Findlay Park), you will need to submit a Field Booking Request on our website https://www.portsaints.com.au/field-booking where you can nominate the preferred training days and times for your team. Please note field bookings are subject to availability and are allocated on a first in, first served basis. If you would like to train your team at another field, please contact us so that we can assist you further.
  • I want to register as a Coach but why do I need to provide a Working With Children Check?
    This is a requirement under NSW Government Legislation. Any organisation who provides services to children is required to have any and all volunteers registered with a valid Working With Children Check (WWCC). This is also connected to our ability to accept Active Kids Vouchers. Your WWCC will be verified as part of the registration process. You can apply for a WWCC through this link: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-for-a-working-with-children-check. WWCC for any volunteer is free of charge.
  • Where can I find additional information?
    We have updated our website to include coaching resources and guides to assist you with team training days. Please refer to the resources tab of our website for additional tools to assist you. If you have any questions, or would like to register for a coaching information session, please email secretary@portsaints.com.au and we will be happy to assist.
