If you are a first time player you will need to get an FFA number which can also be done at the link above before you start the registration process.

Please remember team nominations must be in to North Coast Football by the 28th February. It is imperative that you nominate on time as it is not always possible to fit players in to teams after this date.

Remember your fees must be paid in full before you can take the field.

Season kicks off Saturday 1st April!


AGM on the 19th October

We have our Annual General Meeting on the 19th October at the Sawtell RSL.

The club needs some new faces and some more helpers for next year as those currently on the committee have been involved for many, many years and need a rest, or at the very least some assistance.

We hope some of you can come and help out.

Week 1 Semi-Finals Draw: 2nd to 4th September 2016

Below is a link to the Semi-Finals draw for week 1 2016.

Congratulations to all the teams that got through, and a big well done to all teams right across the club.

Make sure you get out and support our teams this weekend, wear your green, get vocal and have fun.


WOW! It's been another BIG year. And it's far from over!

Today I had a spare few minutes (which is rare...) and found myself thinking about where we are currently at as a club. And to say it's been yet another huge year would be an understatement!

We have again seen massive growth within our club this year. From our miniroos 6s right through to our seniors we now have 50 teams with a massive 548 registered players. We are still by far and away the largest club in the North Coast Football zone (and still growing....) and we would rival many of the metropolitan clubs.

And with that comes the obvious challenges of making sure we have enough field space allocated to teams for training (with only one field under lights), enough coaches and team leaders to look after all those players and teams, enough funding coming in for equipment to cater for all the teams, continuing to try and update shirts, training and playing gear as needed, catering for all those hungry and thirsty players and families on match day, working with groups and council to head towards upgraded amenities and buildings, field lighting, etc.

But for a club this size the real challenge we face is that we have to run it like a business to achieve all of these things, but at the same time we are only in it to see our kids have fun and be able to walk out on the football field and just enjoy themselves.

But to see so many happy, smiling faces around the fields, to see and hear of the improvement in players and teams across all ages, to see the number of people coming down to the fields on a Saturday, to see the number of coaches and parents helping out each week, and to see the number of teams from 12s and up that have made it into the Top 4 (or only just missed out at the last game) really reinforces to me that whilst at times its a lot of hard work, the Sawtell Football Club has a good culture and is heading in the right direction.

We have also had a good number of volunteers this year to help us out around the canteen and fields of a Saturday, as well as a very small but strong committee running the show. But we can always do with more (there is always a pitch...... chat to Rod or any of the committee if you think you can help out next season, we are always in need of volunteers and committee members).

Last weekend saw our last round of non-competitive football for our 6s to 11s and also our final competition round for our 12s through to senior teams, who are now looking toward the finals. And we have teams into finals in almost every age and division and some Minor premiers as well.

So its far from over yet! And we would love to encourage our 6s to 11s, as well as anyone else that is able, to get out to some games and support our teams in the finals, wear your green, use your voice, show your support and help them get through to the next step if they can. And if they can't, just let them know you are there :)

We also have our Junior Presentation and Family Day for the 6s to 16s happening on Sunday 25th September at Toormina Oval (see separate posts about details), and our Senior Presentation night at our major sponsor the Sawtell Hotel on Saturday evening 1st October.

So I just want to finish by saying a big thankyou to everyone involved in the club this year. Players, parents, families, coaches and team leaders, volunteers, committee, and the spouses or significant others who allow us to spend a large chunk of our time away from home and family to do what needs to be done.

Thanks to all for making it another awesome year at Sawtell FC, and good luck to our teams in the finals. See you out on the park!

Kind regards,

Rod Simpson

Sawtell FC President
