How to join our club

Membership of Marist Canberra Football Club is open to all students of Marist College. Marist Canberra Football welcomes new and returning players for the winter season early in the school year. All players must register through the online system, generally in the first fortnight of Term 1, before grading for teams begins. Grading sessions take place on two weekends in February–March, teams are announced in mid-March, and training commences during Term 1, subject to coach and manager availability (see our Volunteers page). The Capital Football season begins on the first weekend of Term 2, and finishes before the end of Term 3. For details of match times, see here. See the Events list for specific details.

Age groups

The club fields teams in age groups Under 10–Under 18. Your age group is based on your age as at 1 January. For example, if you are 14 years old on 1 January, then you would enrol in U15s. Please note - the youngest age you can enrol is U10. The club encourages boys to play in teams with their classmates, and this can mean boys playing up a year.

Player Eligibility

To be eligible to represent Marist College Canberra in football, the player must be either a current student of Marist College Canberra or enrolled to start in February of the current year. Full details can be found in the Marist College Sports Policy (external link).

Fees and Payment

After an enormous amount of feedback in the last few years regarding the annual chocolate fundraiser—which has provided vital funds for the club—the committee decided in 2017 to cancel the chocolate fundraiser and include the previous $35 chocolate fundraiser/waiver in the registration fee. THERE WILL BE NO CHOCOLATE FUNDRAISING IN 2019.

Fees for 2019 (unchanged from 2018) are:

  • $260 for an U12–U18 player
  • $240 for an U10–U11 player, and
  • $115 for each younger sibling.

Payment is made through the online registration system discussed above. Payment will be by credit card only.
