Note – prepayments are checked manually, if your payment is made on the same day as your game please show remittance to the doorkeeper when you arrive at the venue.
Based on member feedback teams wanted a deterrent for forfeits as it was an inconvenience for teams and this deterrent was to apply fines at above the normal team sheet rate. The FDBA are often bound to pay referees; incur fixed cost expenses even when forfeits are pre-notified. Notifying teams once a forfeit has been advised adds an administrative burden on the FDBA. The FDBA will endeavor to accommodate all prior requests, but can not guarantee game times can be changed. FDBA understands that unforeseen circumstances can arise whereby it may not be possible to play. With advanced warning (at least 1 week) the FDBA will endeavor to assist to help ensure the scheduled match can proceed. Notifying the FDBA the day before or the day you cannot play, is not advanced warning.
- U8 = $94.00
- U10 = $110.00
- U12 – U16 = $118.00
- U18 – U21 = $128.00
Un-notified forfeits incur an additional $40.00 fee.
Teams must notify FDBA if they are required to forfeit a match:
Phone: 03 9776 8999 – stadium is staffed 9.00am – 10.00pm Mon – Fri, 7.30am – 6.00pm Saturday and 4.00 – 9.00pm Sunday.
Email: email@example.com – include team name and forfeit in subject line.
If your team is forfeiting on the day of notification we recommend calling to ensure the opposing team is notified.
Forfeiting teams are required to pay a fee equal to twice the match fee. This may be waived if advanced notice of 7 days is provided.
An additional $40.00 fee applies for un-notified forfeits.
By registering and playing at FDBA all members agree to the following;
- The team will abide by the FDBA By-Laws and Participant Behaviour Policy

The Junior Competition Committee (JCC) is an FDBA Sub-Committee.
Each season FDBA will call for nominations for the JCC from affiliated domestic clubs. The committee’s primary role is to oversee the grading of all junior domestic competitions.
Committee members shall be appointed as a grading secretary or grading assistant. The committee is chaired by a member of the FDBA match committee and all members are required to declare any conflicts of interest on the nomination form. The committee must consist of at least 9 members.
The JCC shall meet a minimum of 3 times during each competition season:
- Prior to round 1 – initial grading pool allocation
- Post Grading Phase 1
- Post Grading Phase 2
Additional meetings may be scheduled at the discretion of the chair.
Grading secretaries are allocated to oversee a specific age group and submit grading recommendations to the committee following the completion of each grading phase.
Grading assistants support the grading secretaries and may be allocated to a single age group or multiple age groups. The responsibilities of each grading assistant are determined at the first JCC meeting each season. A grading secretary may also be appointed as a grading assistant for another age group.
New members are always welcome, please direct enquiries to the FDBA office.
