ACTIVE KIDS REBATE:
Chatswood Rangers Sports Club is a registered provider for the NSW Active Kids Program
To apply for a voucher visit the link below. Active Kids vouchers are now means tested so you may not be eligible this year despite being eligible in 2023.
All players are required to wear the Chatswood Rangers playing uniform (shirt, shorts and socks). Uniform and off-fields items are available at the Club online shop.
U6-U11 are required to purchase an official Club playing shirt from the online shop. The 2024 shirt is the same as the 2023 design so if you purchased a shirt last year, or have one donated to you, it can still be worn this season.
U12-U18 players do not need to purchase a playing shirt. The shirt will be provided (on loan) by the Club and is expected to be returned at the end of the season; i.e., it remains the property of the Club.
Shorts – mixed and girls U6-U11 players wear the official Club white shorts. Girls U12-U18 players wear the official Club blue shorts.
Socks – official Club royal blue socks.
Shin guards – MUST be worn when playing or the player is not allowed to take the field – available at most Sports Stores.
HOW TEAMS ARE FORMED:
Chatswood Rangers and the Northern Suburbs Football Association believes it is in the best interest of all players that, where possible, they play with and against players of similar ability, we therefore undertake varying degrees of player grading across our junior teams.
In 2024 Chatswood Rangers will take the following approach to team formation:
|Under 6 and 7
|Teams are typically formed on school and friendship groups, so please let us know if you would like to be grouped with certain players. Any player not assigned to a school or friendship team will be allocated a place in one of the remaining teams.
|Under 8 and above
An A and, where player competence permits, a B team will be selected as ‘Development Squads’ following trials. Where player numbers, permit other teams will be formed as ‘Community Teams’. We encourage players and managers to inform us of team formation requests, which may include school, community and friendship affiliations. Any player not assigned to a school or friendship team will be allocated a place in one of the remaining teams.
As a not-for-profit, we rely on the collective strength of our club members to continue to make Chatswood Rangers successful, fun and rewarding for everyone. It is also a great way to be more involved with your child’s team and the community. At a team level, each team will need a manager and a coach, and a game leader (referee) for Miniroos.
At a club level, we are building a sub-committee structure to enable Junior Football to support the , bring diversity of ideas and improve the delivery of the football program for all.
Junior Football programming requires the following roles to support our players:
- Female Football Coordinator
- Football Development Coordinator
- Mini-Roos (U6-U11) Coordinator
- Juniors (U12 – U18) Coordinator
- Junior Football Equipment Coordinator
- Summer Football Coordinator
- Communications Coordinator
- Gala Day & Events Coordinator
