By Registering, you are agreeing to
By registering with the Park Orchards North Ringwood Parish Junior Football Club, you are agreeing to all policies and procedures of the club as well as the most important – the Code of contact set by the YJFL to players and parents. Please find our Policiess online here.
We are an inclusive junior football club. We welcome all those that would like to play for our club and will work hard to ensure the right players are in the right teams and play in the right competition level within the YJFL.
Historically, we have not been a club that have capped numbers. However, the change of numbers during the seasons impacted by COVID lockdowns has proved to create gaps in some ages, and large registrations in others.
As a result, the Committee and Football Department will be monitoring registrations closely. We will be working with coaching staff to ensure all players wanting to play get a chance to become part of a team. We are focused on ensuring that all teams have the right numbers of players.
If there is a need to have teams with larger numbers, there will be rebates to those games missed due to rotations and also rotation scheduling to ensure equal opportunities. We will be working with the coaches well ahead of time to have this transparent and communicated to families.
We do encourage that you please register as soon as possible so we can ensure the right allocation of player numbers is achieved.
