Incorporated in the Registration Fees are:
- YJFL fee, collected from the player at time of registration (flat fee across age groups)
- Sharks JFC fee, which has been tiered to keep costs family-friendly and competitive with other clubs
|Age||Year of Birth||YJFL||Sharks||Total|
|U18 (Girls Only)||2002||$177.45||$119.00||$296.45|
The YJFL cost base significantly increased in 2019 with retirement of volunteers who were replaced by paid employees. In 2019, the League attempted to hold prices at prior year levels but suffered significant operating losses, with the introduction of additional Umpires and the Colbrow Medic initiative ($33.50 per player), even after charging member clubs an additional registration levy at the end of Season 2019.
For Season 2020, the League has moved to a single initial payment per player, irrespective of age group ($177.45). As a result, Sharks JFC have balanced this by ensuring all age groups shared the increases evenly – the Sharks JFC registration component, balanced across all age groups, has not increased. However, due to the YJFL increases, the overall registration fees paid by parents is increased for Season 2020.
New players joining the Sharks for the first time in Season 2020 receive a FREE club jacket! Existing players may wish to purchase a new jacket from our Merchandise Store.
During March 2020, the Club will hold 2 Mouthguard Fitting Nights by a qualified dentist. Please keep your eye on the website and TeamApp for confirmation of dates and times.

A number of changes were made to the rules and by-laws for Under 8s, Under 9s, and Under 10s games for Season 2015 and beyond. If your child is playing in one of these, please familiarise yourself with the appropriate changes to the rules and by-laws by visiting our Policies page.
Proof of Age
All players registering for the first time must have their birth certificate or extract sighted by the Registrar. Please email a clear and legible scan/photograph to our Registrar. You can also do this in-person.
U8s and U9s
Players wishing to register for U8s or U9s must have turned 7 years old (for U8s), or 8 years old (for U9s) by 01/01/2020 in order to be eligible.
AFL Victoria have decided to give a dispensation to this by-law for U8s in Season 2018, provided that the child meets the following criteria:
- Have previously registered for AFL Auskick and turn 7 years old between 01/01/2020 and 30/04/2020; or
- Turn 7 years old between 01/01/2020 and 30/04/2020 and are registering to play in Under 8s
Children fitting these criteria may now be registered. Proof of Age must be sighted in order to be eligible.
We encourage parents of U8s and U9s to familiarise themselves with the U8s and U9s Information Pack prior to commencement of the season.
We make every effort to try to group our U8s and U9s teams together in friendship groups. If you are registering an U8s or U9s player, please complete an U8s and U9s Friendship Group form and email this to our Registrar.
