If a registered player is unable to attend Muster, please let us know (via contact@bmfc.com.au) no later than Friday, 6:00pm, 16 February – also let us know if requesting placement in a specific team.

Coaches and Managers for the U5-U10 teams are chosen at Team Muster and must be registered by this date to ensure that their team can participate this season.
