Football’s Affordability Even More Attractive for Season 2018

February 1st, 2018

A comprehensive review of registration fees at community football clubs throughout Northern NSW revealed that football is already very affordable and that the application of the Active Kids Voucher facilitated opportunities for children to play for ‘free’ at 43 clubs.

The NSW Government’s Active Kids Voucher will make football even more affordable for families in 2018. The $207 million initiative over four years aims to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport,  active fitness and recreation activities. Every child enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for an Active Kids Voucher.

The review of registration fees also revealed that the average cost of registration to play ALDI MiniRoos (5-11 years) throughout Northern NSW is $155.00 in 2018. The fee would reduce to $55 if parents elected to utilise their child’s Active Kids Voucher.

Players under the age of 18 participating at a community club throughout Northern NSW will on average pay $184.00 in 2018, which would reduce to $84 if a voucher was used.

Football is justifiably more expensive for Seniors who play longer fixtures and place a heavy burden on sports injury policies, however, the average cost of registration across all player categories from Entry Level to Seniors is $215.00 in 2018.

NNSWF’s component of player registrations fees increased slightly this season for the first time since 2014 for Entry Level Players and 2015 for other categories.

The organisation’s reliance on registration fees as a source of funding continues to decline due to the successful operation of the “Home of Football” at Speers Point and the support of outstanding commercial partners such as the Newcastle Permanent Building Society who recently renewed their major partnership of Community Football for a further three years.
