Soccer is the world game and Lidcombe Waratah is your local, family soccer club. We have teams for boys and girls [from Under 6 to Under 18] as well as for men and women. And our home ground is Coleman Park, Georges Ave, Lidcombe – so close. fees cover registration, insurance, ground fees, referees fees and affiliation fees – there are no weekly fees payable after you have registered. The main season consists of 18 rounds which are played between April and August. Training will commence in February. We also arrange some pre-season games in March to get the teams ready for the season.

In addition to registering with the club you may be eligible for the NSW Government grant Active Kids voucher which you can use for your child’s registration fees. Essentially you will be able to deduct $100 from your child’s registration fees.

NOTE:  A family discount of $20.00 applies to the second and subsequent family members registering with the club. The family discount applies regardless of the age or division in which the additional family members play.  Players playing above their age group due to no team being entered in their age group will only pay the fee of their age group. However a player choosing to play in an older age group, when a team has been entered into their age group, will pay the fee of the older age group.

A “NO PAY-NO PLAY” policy will cover all age groups.  This means that to play soccer, registration fees must be paid in full when registering.  For families experiencing financial difficulty, please contact one of the Club Officials so that we can discuss your situation.

How is my age group determined?

For those age groups preceded by the word “under”, your age is determined as your actual age in the current calendar year of registration. For example, if you turn 10 during the calendar year (1st January through 31st December), you are an “Under 10”.

For Over 35s, the opposite applies…you can only register (and play) on or after your 35th birthday.
