Can I get a discount on my fees? – Fair Play vouchers

North Star Football club is a participating club in the Queensland Government's ‘Fair Play Voucher’ programme. Parents, carers or guardians can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 for their child to be used towards their fees. The fair play voucher program is due to open 24th January. We ask that you pay for your fees in full & once the window opens & you receive your voucher, email it to us & we will provide you with a refund.

Or, if you have the voucher before you register, Majestri, our club registration system, now allows members to upload their vouchers into the system from within their registration checkout.

 Please click here  https://www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/fairplay  for more details and eligibility.

Why do I need to pay a volunteer levy?

North Star FC is entirely run by volunteers. These volunteers are parents like yourself with kids at the club and full time jobs. We invite all families to volunteer. For approximately every 10 hours you volunteer you will get your $50 volunteer levy back. There is also the option to earn more than the $50 volunteer levy. The more help you can give the club the more you will be reimbursed. There are a number of roles including coaching, managers, committee roles. Please email info@northstarfc.com.au if you would like to volunteer for a role.

We invite you to consider putting your hand up being a team coach. We are looking for an U15 and U18 coach to the entire season. We have made plans for a coach for the preseason. It’s a great way to get involved and watch your child enjoy football with their team mates

Games days

Games are predominantly played on Sundays. They can be anytime from 8.30am to an afternoon game.

Rainy weather

Unfortunately from time to time rainy weather does cancel training. We assess the fields at approx. 3pm on rainy days and information about closures is released between 3-4pm. Each day our fields are filled with teams training. Therefore it is difficult to reschedule. There may be an option for a Friday catch up session or a school holiday catch up session.

Uniforms

Uniforms are not included in the registration costs. Players will be required to purchase a shirt, shorts and socks. These items can be reused the following year. Therefore we haven’t included them as part of the registration costs. We hope this then keeps costs down for families.
