How do I join?

Please get in touch with us using the details on the right or the Contact Us page.

We recognise that, for many, while you play to win, you also play for fitness and social reasons and playing with your friends is important. If this is the case, please let us know during the pre-season trials and we will try and accommodate you as much as possible (other than for the Men’s Premier League team).

We also have a policy of ensuring that every player who wants to play can do so, and we do not turn people away if there is room in a squad.

What does a season look like?

Preseason training starts in February. The season runs from April to August. Games are usually played on Saturdays (men) and Sundays (women). We have recently started playing on Friday evenings as well.

Players are responsible for their own transport to and from training, trial and league games.

Financial matters

Please note – we have a strict policy of “no pay, no play”.

We are an amateur club, run by volunteers, and do not pay players to play; fees will need to be paid in full before you are registered and eligible to play. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept staggered payments. Please see the registration page for fees and payment details.

The seniors registration fee for a season includes:

up to 24 weeks of training (subject to weather conditions and ground allocations)
registration in competition
playing kit
insurance
affiliation fees to NSFA, Football NSW and FFA
training ground hire
balls
referee fees.

You may be allowed to play without registering in some trial games during pre-season (at the discretion of the team manager), but you will not be covered by insurance so this will be at your own risk.

Training

Training for most teams begins in late January or early February, one night a week (see the training schedules page). Our Development Squads as well as Mens Premier League – and goalkeepers – have additional training sessions.

Training may or may not be compulsory – depending on your level, attitude of teammates and manager’s approach.

Make-up games

As the season progresses, make-up games will be staged where possible – usually at Cammeray and at all 3 fields at Primrose. Please note that make-up games will take priority over training.

If you need to reschedule a match, please contact the club’s president directly.

What if I get injured?

Go to this webpage, which contains links to all the necessary information.

After you have completed the form (using your GP), email the form to the club’s president. The president will forward your claim to the NSFA to obtain the relevant signatures, and the NSFA will then forward your claim to the insurance brokers.

After a game

Please carry your Oaks Cards to the pub – simply hand them to the bar staff when you order.

The Oaks would like us to meet up in The Garden Bar (not to be confused with the Garden Pavilion) on Saturdays from 5pm-7pm at least – obviously during the warm evenings earlier in the season people prefer to be outside, and some other bars may appear more interesting on a given day. However, The Oaks would prefer us as a group at the Garden Bar.

The Oaks Hotel is one of our club’s main sponsors, so please do your best to pop round to the pub at least after every home game.

Contact us

If you are interested in playing, please contact us. It would help us to know:

1. What standard of football have you played in the past?
2. What is your preferred position?
3. In which division and / or age group would you ideally like to play?
