Changing a fixture


If you cannot field a team (see Resources > Rules for minimum number of players) either due to to illness, injuries, suspensions or absences, then you must notify the Club Secretary immediately via the Contact Page.

There are monetary penalties imposed by Football South Coast on the Club for failing to provide sufficient notice, so please treat this matter as urgent.

MiniRoos games can often be changed simply by communicating with the other team, but changes will only be instigated if the reason is a valid one (in the opinion of the Club Secretary).


Graded teams only

In order to change a fixture, the FSC has specified the following:

I bring to your attention Regulation 24 “Change of fixture”, of the Junior Council Playing and Procedures.
To facilitate 24.3, the following documentation needs to be filled in and signed by both Club Secretaries or Club Executives – not coaches, not managers. This form must be lodged 7 days before the match and the proposed change must either be before the scheduled match or no later than three days after the scheduled match.

  • If the match brought forward is washed out then it will revert back to the previous date and time.
  • If the a match is requested after the scheduled date and all other games in the round are washed out then the game shall be cancelled.
  • If a match is requested after the scheduled date where the round is played and that match is washed out then the match will be null and void; in other words it will not be re-scheduled.

Clubs who wish to use this need to communicate with each other to ensure that:

  1. the venue is available
  2. the opposition team is available.

If it is a night match then it can only be played at venues where FSC has the current light certificate (minimum 100 lux).

The Great Illawarra Walk is being held on 17th and 18th March. All funds raised are going towards the stem cell research project for Chloe to search for a potential treatment for Vanishing White Matter Disease that is beginning in IHMRI (Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute) at Wollongong University.

What a great way to see the Illawarra, get some exercise and support stem cell research.
