NSFA’s Birth Date Requirements for 2020 can be viewed here.
If you have registered in the wrong age group you will need to notify the club asap via email. If you have already made payment you made need to be deregistered and reregistered.
It is possible to be granted permission play up or down an age group/s depending on the circumstances. A special dispensation form will need to be completed and returned to LCFC which is then passed onto NSFA. This can be found here.

Our Senior teams trial dates can be confirmed with the team managers. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you contact with them. Or you can contact the relevant Age Coordinator directly: https://lcfc.com.au/contact/board/
The Miniroos & Junior Trial Dates 2020 (Blackman Park) will be held during the weeks commencing 17th and 24th February 2020:
There are no required uniforms for trials or training. Please wear a t-shirt and shorts of any colour/style.
We know it can be hard to purchase gear like football boots and shin pads in time for the start of the season. So runners are acceptable and you can trial/train without shin pads.
When playing in competitive matches on the weekend though, you will be required to wear footballs boots, shin pads and the LCFC uniform.
We are much more lenient when it comes to trials and training! Try to remember a water bottle too.
If you want your child to play with specific friends then please email the club as soon as you have registered. We will notify the age coordinator and do our best to allocate friends in the same teams. Please be mindful it may not always be possible when teams are graded (U8s and older).
The over 60 is: $50 per person.
To claim this, please contact the club via email and we will confirm that you can make payment via direct deposit (as the online FFA system doesn’t take into account our over 60 discount):
Account Name: Lane Cove Football Club Incorporated
Account Number: 618018
The student discount is available for All Age players who are undertaking full time study. In order to receive the student discount you must select the ‘student’ tick box at the time of registering. It is then a requirement to forward the club via email a copy of your 2019 student transcript or similar as proof of student status. Please note that the date must be visible.
A place in a team cannot be guaranteed. If a player is not allocated to a team, a refund will be granted. Refunds for any other reason must be approved by the LCFC Board.
Approved refunds will be paid minus a processing fee; this is a minimum of $35, and is determined by the LCFC Board.
Once a player has been selected into a team and played a match scheduled under the official NSFA Competition, they will no longer be entitled to a refund due to withdrawal, injury or other circumstances.
If you think you are entitled to a refund then please complete the registration refund form here. Please send to email@example.com.
All registrations will be approved in our system, don’t worry!
It takes the administration team a long time to check all registrations and approve them in the system. Unfortunately, it is a manual process and we have over 1000 players all registering in a small number of weeks.
Once registrations have been approved in the system it also gets trickier to amend registrations and we quite often leave it until the last possible moment before the start of the season so we can ensure we have all the right numbers and that players were registered in the correct age groups.
Rest assured, we consider your registration approved the moment you are in the system!

Councils make the decision as to whether or not grounds are playable or closed due to weather conditions. If it is raining and you are unsure whether training/games are cancelled you may check the local council websites such as Lane Cove Council or phone 9911 3585 for the Lane Cove Council wet weather hotline.
NSFA also reports on the wet weather for all grounds in their district. This can be checked here.
LCFC will update their website based on information from NSFA and local councils.
NSFA (Northern Suburbs Football Association) is in charge of the draw. It can be located here.
Due to wet weather and regrading throughout the season, the draw is sometimes distributed only a week or 2 in advance. Should you have any issues or concerns regarding the draw please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can pass on your comments to NSFA for a response.
