HOW TO JOIN & WAITING LIST FORM

The membership of KCAFC is limited by the availability of pitches and the number of coaches able to manage the squads. Due to the popularity of the club, we operate a set of membership criteria to ensure we are being fair to both existing and new club members.

In order to ensure we can adequately look after the children and young people, we have set a maximum squad size of 18 for over 10s and a maximum squad size of 14 for u10s. We will endeavour to accept all children into the club, but in the event that we are oversubscribed, the following criteria will be used to determine which people are able to join the club.

Prior Year Membership

Children and young people who are already club members will be given priority over new members. In the event that we are oversubscribed with existing members, then we will also take into account players’ attendance records, attitude, commitment and dedication in the previous season.

Anticipated Availability for the Coming Season

Priority will be given to players who make this club their primary club. If players are committed to school teams and/or other clubs ahead of KCAFC, this will not necessarily preclude them, but this will be taken into account if we are oversubscribed and may also affect match selection decisions.

 

Religious Commitment

Preference may be given to children who can only play on Saturdays due to religious commitments on a Sunday.

 

Membership Fee Paid for the Coming Season

If membership fees are not paid by September 1st, this may preclude a child from joining in the event of oversubscription. If a player has been accepted into membership but has not paid their fees by September 30th, they will not be eligible to play in matches until such fees are paid.

All new pre-applications will be reviewed by the Membership Committee by the end of July for the following season according to the acceptance criteria. Places will then be allocated where there is the availability and parents notified as soon as possible thereafter. Successful applicants will then have until 31st August to pay their membership fees for the forthcoming season.
