COST & UNIFORM

Family Discount of $70 is available from the 3rd playing member in each family
All players need their own uniform, available from the ESAFC shop at Madills Farm;
Each in-house team requires volunteers for coach and manager, with other parents rostered to set up and take down the goals. We encourage teams to organise their own training sessions throughout the week to prepare for game day.
All parents/spectators (excluding coach) are expected to stay outside of the pitch lines during games to avoid damage to the grounds.
9th Grade Development teams compete at the level above them in our ESAFC in-house leagues. Some teams may also be entered at AFF level at the club’s discretion.
9th Grade Boys MUST take part in Term 1 training to be eligible for an AFF/Development team.
As part of our player development programme, training will involve a commitment of at least 2 sessions per week for all players. Those who show the potential and drive to play at their highest ability will then be given a place in the Elite/Premier squad – this involves 3 training sessions per week.
