No Pay - No Play Policy

To play for the Eagles, the club operates on a ‘No Pay - No Play’ Policy. 

Player registration fees are due by the registration closing date prior to the start of each season. Once a player has registered and paid their fees, a portion of these fees are paid to governing associations. Once fees have been paid, the Club will approve your registration on Play Football to activate player insurance. 

If a player and/or parent or guardian has difficulty paying the total fee by the due date, please speak to the Treasurer about alternative payment arrangements. Any arrangements made with the player and/or parent or guardian must be adhered to. Any breach to this agreement will be deemed to come under the No Pay - No Play Policy. 

For any senior players who owe money to the club for other reasons, including Club fines, will be deemed to come under the No Pay - No Play Policy. For any invoices outstanding more than 30 days, the Club use a Debt Collection Agency. If your account is sent to the Debt Collector, it will incur a 20% fee that will be added to your account. 

Unregistered players (with outstanding fees)

Due to insurance considerations, uninsured players are not permitted to play or train with Narangba Eagles.

De-registration/refunds.

Any refunds of registration fees will be at the discretion of Narangba Eagles Football Club Committee.

Insurance

Returning players registered with Play Football in 2021 are covered for insurance purposes until 6 February 2022, and then after they have paid season 2022 fees. 

All players (except MiniRoos Kick-Off) are insured when they have completed the registration process through Play Football and paid all registration fees in full prior to the commencement of the season.

Home game expectations

If your team plays the first or last game of the day, your team is responsible for setting up or packing up the field. This includes returning goals and flags to the Clubhouse. All players and parents can assist with this, not just the coach and manager.

Respect fields and equipment

All players and visitors are asked to respect our fields and equipment. Please ensure no climbing on goals or fences. All rubbish is to be placed in bins.

Change room etiquette

Change rooms, both home and away, must be left in a clean and tidy condition after training and games by any teams that use them. Under no circumstances is a team to leave the change room until the room has been cleaned. Respect not only our home change rooms, but other Club’s change rooms when playing away. Players must dislodge dirt and mud from their boots before they enter the change room. Coaches and managers must be conscious of their responsibility in this regard. Any team negligent in leaving the facilities clean after they have used them will be subject to financial penalties.

Volunteering

The backbone of our club are our volunteers. Not only will your help will make the workload lighter for others, but your volunteering can contribute towards earning enough points to refund your volunteer levy at the end of the season.

Code of conduct

It is vital that everyone involved in sporting activities, whether they are athletes, coaches, parents, officials or supporters understand their responsibilities to ensure that all participants enjoy the sport. 

The code of conduct has been incorporated into our registration process and all members of our club including spectators and parents are to abide by these codes of conduct. Please take time to familiarise yourselves with these.  

All players, parents and spectators are bound by the rules of conduct of our club. A three strikes policy will apply, i.e.: 

  • Player Breach 1: sit out training session + 1 match suspension. 
  • Player Breach 2: sit out 2 training sessions + 2 match suspension. 
  • Player Breach 3: suspension until seasons end. 
  • Parental Breach 1: Exclusion from the next match. 
  • Parental Breach 2 or failure to comply with Breach 1 penalty: suspension from the club until seasons end.

Disciplinary policy

All players are to read the Football Queensland Disciplinary Policy. 

Any player who receives a fine under this policy is responsible for the financial cost of the fine. The fine is payable within 7 days of issue of an invoice from the Club. Any fines outstanding at this time will enact the No Pay - No Play policy. 

Should the player wish to appeal the fine to Football Queensland, they may do so, at their own cost. 

The Committee may in limited circumstances agree to pay the Football Queensland fine on the players behalf, as determined by the Disciplinary Committee.

Wet weather

Wet weather is something we cannot control. We do our best to ensure the fields are open as often as possible but will close them when wet weather threatens player safety or field sustainability.
