2023 Summer Competition

PLAYHQ LICENCE RENEWAL
Some players may have their PlayHQ licence fee due around now. If it is not paid and up to date you may not be able to be located on the tablet for games. If you have received an email from PlayHQ about this (sent to the email your membership was set up on) please urgently contact communications@millparkrebelz.com.au as we will need to provide you a voucher code to ‘re-register’ your player to the current season. The annual PlayHQ licence fee is now $26 for U18s and $46 for 18+.

INABILITY TO PLAY
If you are unable to play due to Covid or needing to isolate, please advise your team manager or coach ASAP. If we need to activate a walkover, is important that we can do this as soon as possible to reduce impact on the competition and the club. If it is definitely due to Covid please let us know as there are certain actions the club may need to take. Confidentiality will be adhered to.

COACHES
We will be asking parents if they could assist our wonderful girls and boys teams with their incredible coaching skills. Our illustrious and strong club is built on parents volunteering their time to all of our kids so they may grow illustrious and strong themselves.

If you would like to give your time and learn from the best as we’ll guide, embrace and nurture you along this most rewarding journey, then contact us at communincations@millparkrebelz.com.au

TEAM MANAGERS
Some teams will need a team manager. Parents from these teams will be contacted to see who can assist. Without a team manager, we may need to fold the team as the Committee is unable to perform this role also. The role is reasonable simple, mainly communication between the Committee and team members, arranging a scoring roster, showing new parents how to do the scoring. Please give some thought to this and contact
communications@millparkrebeblz.com.au if you think you could help.

FIXTURING
Junior Domestic competition fixtures are constructed on an age flow system, starting with the youngest age groups, and concluding with the oldest age groups. Game ‘tip-off’ times for each age group may vary slightly each season due to the fluctuations in total competition team entries. 

Coaches are a valuable resource for Clubs  and play an important role in the coaching and development of players. We endeavor to assist coaches who coach multiple teams, provided the teams are separated by at least one age group gap. For example, a coach, coaching u10 should avoid coaching u12, and instead coach u14.
