Registration Fees/Forms

This year in order to confirm your child’s acceptance of their position within a Frankston Blues squad you will be required to pay a non-refundable $50 confirmation of acceptance prior to 5pm on Monday the 7th of December.

If this payment is not received your child’s spot could be offered to another player.

This payment is due to the fact that in recent years players have withdrawn from the program after being selected in a team, this causes a great deal of disruption and that is why we have named EMERGENCIES for certain age groups.

*Pending final team selections, players listed as EMERGENCIES will be entitled to a refund if they are not elevated to a team

The registration links can be found HERE

2020/2021 Fee Structure

Acceptance of position = $50, Due by 5:00 pm Monday the 7th of December 2020 (Registration Form Links will be available after Squad Announcements)
