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.
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.
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).
Online Registration System
The Club uses a secure online registration system, myfootballclub.com.au, provided by the Football Federation Australia. Online registrations for 2018 are now live - please see below. A photo of the player must be uploaded during the 2018 registration process.
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 2018.
Fees for 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.

To play for Marist Canberra Football Club, a player must be registered. Registration and payment of the registration fee must be completed online. This is the ONLY way this can be done.
Registration for the football season is done through the Football Federation of Australia's online system MyFootballClub. Parents should register their boy online prior to grading, and the boy should then attend the appropriate grading for his age-group, bringing a copy of his registration receipt.
The club will be happy to provide assistance with any questions regarding the registration process through the website's contact page.
Please be aware that players must be registered before they attend grading and until the fee is paid a player is not considered registered and will not be placed in a team.
Late registrations (after grading) will not be guaranteed to ensure that a player can be assigned to a team. If you are making a late registration, you should contact the club first.
- Junior League (U12–U18) $260
- Small Sided Football/Modified Game (U10–U11) $240
- Family Payment $115 for each extra sibling
Families with genuine difficulty with payment, please contact the club directly and be assured that all enquiries will be confidential.
Refunds will not be available after team lists have been posted unless there are extenuating circumstances accepted by the Club committee.
Please check the website regularly for pre-season training times.
- Go to the MyFootballClub website and select the appropriate option.
- After completing the Contact Details section and uploading a photo of the player, move on to the Select Registration section, type Marist, and select 'Marist Canberra Football Club (Club)'.
- Select the appropriate registration package.
- When registering a second (etc) son, apply the sibling discount when completing that registration. Sibling discount can be applied on the Payment page as an 'Add-on' package. Select the appropriate Sibling discount package (eg U11 Sibling Discount) and the applicable discount will be applied to the package.
- Then go through to Credit Card Payments.
Now you need to check the grading dates for your son's age group, and turn up to those on the day. Once the teams have been selected, lists will go up at school and on the website. From there we will need a couple of parents from the team to come forward to coach and to manage the boys. Once we have a coach and manager, the training dates need to be organised. Again, keep an eye on our website for dates and times for your son's age group, or subscribe to notices from our Facebook feed (just 'like' our page).
