“Over” Teams – Nepean FA has adopted FNSW’s definition regarding the age of players in “Over” teams. Essentially, a player has to have attained the age as at 31 December in the previous year. For example, someone born on or before 31 December 1982 can play in an O35s team in 2018, but someone born 18 February 1983 can only play O35s in 2019.
De-registrations (Pre-Season) – A player who de-registers for any reason, other than not being offered a position in a team, will receive a full refund minus a $20 de-registration fee ($16.50 payable to Nepean; $3.50 BMFC admin fee).
De-registrations (Season) – A player who de-registers and has yet to take the field (cross-checked against team sheets), will receive a full refund minus a $20 de-registration fee ($16.50 payable to Nepean; $3.50 BMFC admin fee). A players who de-registers and HAS taken the field (cross-checked against team sheets), will only receive a refund of the unused portion of the Club Fee – i.e. the NFA/FNSW/FFA portions of the Registration Fee will not be refunded.

The benefits are limited. BMFC advises members to note the coverage provided by the insurance and re – commends that members have loss-of-income, life and/or private medical insurance coverage over and above the coverage provided.
