Register to play football with Port Saints FC
Please note, FFA is providing a new online registration system this year. If you have any issues please refer to ‘Where do I go for help’ below.
Our fees, and what they include, are detailed on the Registration Fees page.
The age you should select is the age the player will turn in the calendar year. Any player who wishes to play up more than 2 years needs to request approval from the club, however the club recommends all players play in their own age group at least until U12’s.
Register online by selecting Port Saints FC at playfootball.com.au and enter the Active Kids voucher ID number when prompted in the registration process. If Port Saints FC isn’t available to select, try deleting part of the club name in the text box to search for all clubs starting with ‘Port’.

What Happens Next?
After you have completed your registration, the following process occurs (Please be patient as it can be weeks after you register before the teams are finalised and you receive a team list).
- Registrations close.
- Club registrar begins to compile teams. The teams are prioritised by players in the team in previous years, followed by players requesting to play in the team. The registrar will make every effort to accomodate your requests, but cannot guarantee you will be placed in your chosen team.
- Registrar will email a list of players in the team.
- Around this time the club will send out a pre-season info email to provide details on the upcoming season, including season start date and any special event dates.
- A coach will need to be selected. Usually the coach will be a volunteer (typically a parent of one of the players). The club does not provide a coach, but will help by providing info on coaching courses and equipment necessary for training.
- Once the coach is selected, the coach will need to register online (just as per player registration, except coach registration is free). All coaches will also need to provide a working with children check number (click here) before training kits are provided.
- The coach will then need to contact the coaching coordinator (email@example.com) to arrange for a training allocation time and field. The coach should discuss the appropriate time with the team, and then notify the team once the allocation has been confirmed by the club.
- Training can now commence, and shortly after, the first game of the season.
- Please remember, all of our committee are volunteers. We prefer electronic communication (email, Facebook etc) so it doesn’t distract from our day jobs.
Please review the info on the following pages. It is expected that every player who registers with Port Saints FC agrees to abide by the information contained on this website, and in particular on the pages below.
