FEE PAYMENT POLICY
ALL players registered with Pottsville Beach Football Club MUST have all registration fees paid prior to playing any Football Far North Coast sanctioned matches.
The amount of such fees is determined on a year by year basis and like this policy is reviewed annually. Fees are made up of various components taking into account not only club fees (PBFC proportion) but others set by various local, regional, state and national football bodies. While it is the aim of PBFC to keep fees at a reasonable and affordable level as much as possible, it should be noted that fee components set by other bodies are not negotiable and may have to be passed on by PBFC.
PBFC’s portion of the registration fees covers, but is not limited to:
- Yearly rental payment to Tweed Shire Council;
- Ground maintenance and lighting;
- Playing strips;
- Training balls and match balls;
- Training equipment;
- Referee payments;
- End of year medallions and trophies;
- End of year presentations;
- Team photo (if one is provided by team);
- Admin and club operations.
N.B. Please note that due to insurance / liability requirements a player will not be able to take the field unless his / her registration has been paid in full!
Please note: Senior player wishing to take part in the Anzac Cup competition must have all registrations paid in full prior to the carnival.
Payment online at the time of registration is preferred. However you can also elect to ‘pay at the club’ which means you will need to pay your fees directly into the club bank account. NO CASH payments are accepted.

A family discount applies if a single family has 3 or more playing members and no family members have used their active kids voucher as part of their payment. Family fee 3 + players get a 10% discount which will be reimbursed by the club if paying online.
CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
A player who chooses to cancel their registration prior to the commencement of the season will have their fees refunded in full once the required FFA cancellation paperwork has been completed. A $20 administration fee may apply. Active Kids Vouchers will be transferred to another activity provider and will not be refunded directly to parents. It is up to players to provide the club with their bank account details for refunds and transfer details for other providers.
A player who chooses to cancel their registration after the commencement of the season or once they have been listed on a team sheet may be entitled to a partial refund (club component of fees only) at the discretion of the PBFC Executive Committee. Any fees already payable by the club to Football Far North Coast (FFNC) will not be refunded.
N.B. PBFC is not eligible for any FFNC component refund once the player has been listed on a team sheet.
