PLAYING UP REQUEST
Ellenbrook United Football Club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all its members. The club believes that it is important that members, coaches, team managers, administrators and parents associated with the club should always show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of all players. This runs in line with the Club’s and Football West values.
It is our full intention for children to play in their correct age group. For the 20232 season, the following age groups apply to your child’s birth year.
U8 - 2015
U9 - 2014

U12 - 2011
U13 - 2010
U14 - 2009
U15 - 2008

Moving forward, each player will be evaluated on their ability to play in a different age group in line with Football West competition rules and the Club’s technical direction.
These criteria used for assessment are listed on the last page of the application.
