Club News

We are looking for players turning 13 or older this year to join our team of Mini Roo referees.We will provide training, shirts and payment per game, and will manage the roster so that there is no clashes with your own games (you must be registered with Georges River FC this season to be eligible to apply).

Please follow this link to apply, then Pina our Mini Roo Ref coordinator will be in touch with next steps soon.

Thank you!

Look for the option to add a Fiver for the Firies when you register online, and we'll make the donation direct to the NSW RFS on behalf of all Tigers.

We anticipate hitting over 1000 players again this season... Let's see if together we can raise $5000.

Thanks for your support!

We have a special welcome session planned for all boys and girls turning 5 or 6 in 2020 to come down and form a team for the new season.

U6 orientation session on Friday 14 February 5:00 - 6:45pm:

We will have a parent orientation talk, and the kids will be grouped into teams of 5 or 6 (minimum 4) and will play mini games. For most kids this will be their first ever game of football and it’s a lot of fun!

We will have all-girl teams and mixed teams which can be all-boy or boys and girls together.

There will be a free BBQ for the kids after they’ve had a kick, and our licenced Tiger Inn will be open for parents to chillax.

Our registration desk will also be open for ID sightings (proof of age and address), however we encourage you to register your kids online before coming down and email any documents to our registrar ahead of time as the queue can get rather long on U6 day!

Please read our U6 FAQs for more information about the team formation and registration prcess.
