`Policies’ means the policies published by the Club on its web site and as amended from time to time.

Members are aware that playing football, observing football, learning to play football, training to play football, and participating in any activity carried out by the Club, are activities that inherently involve risk and that in undertaking these activities members and their children so at his/her own risk. Members also agree (on their own behalf and for their child and all other parents, guardians and relatives of their child), as a condition of their child’s admission as a Player of the Club, to waive and release its office bearers, officials, coaches, managers, referees, Members, Players, agents and other volunteers from all liability whether in respect of injury, damage or loss or otherwise (howsoever caused) to their child, themselves or any other person, and whether that injury, damage or loss arises out of membership of the Club, playing football, observing football, learning to play football and training to play football, or negligence or other breach of duty of any nature whatsoever on the part of the Club, their representatives, office bearers, officials, coaches, managers, referees, Members, Players, agents and other volunteers, or otherwise.

Members understand and agree that nothing in their agreement to register with the Club purports to exclude any liability that may be owed by the Club or their representatives pursuant to the provisions of any relevant statute covering their activities and which may not be excluded by agreement. To the extent that any part of this agreement may contravene any statute members agree that such part of the agreement shall be severed and rendered void but the rest of the agreement will remain valid and continue to have full force and effect.

Members agree (on their own behalf and for their child and all other parents guardians or relatives of their child) that they have familiarised ourselves with, and will abide by and be bound by, the Club’s Policies, rules, by-laws and Code of Conduct, as published and amended from time to time. Members acknowledge that failure to do so may result in the termination of their membership and de-registration of their child from the Club, at the absolute discretion of the Club’s management committee.

Members authorise Subiaco AFC to upload their email details to an email distribution client for the purpose of the Club sending periodic emails in relation to club events and notices.

Members authorise Subiaco AFC to use photographs of their child in Club communications, including articles and events on the Club website, social media and other similar platforms.

Members understand that Subiaco AFC may publish any media for the purpose of promoting any or all club related events. Subiaco AFC promotes responsible social media use and any offensive or discriminatory comments will be removed and the player and/or guardian will be disciplined as deemed appropriate by the Management Committee. This includes comments or posts that contradict Subiaco AFC’s Code of Conduct or Football West’s Code of Behaviour.

Members understand that Subiaco AFC is an organisation that is reliant upon volunteer contributions and that their registration is conditional upon their contribution to one of the areas indicated in the Volunteer Contribution section of the registration process.

Members understand that all players participating in U8-U18 teams will be graded in accordance with Club policy. Allocation of players to specific teams is at the sole discretion of the Club.

Members understand that requests for a refund of registration fees must be in writing to the Club Secretary. The Management Committee will decide what, if any refund shall be provided. In general, refunds are provided to a member if no matches have been played. Once playing kit has been issued, players have been allocated to teams and training has commenced, refunds are at the absolute discretion of the Management Committee, who shall consider each case on its merits. Players who choose to move to another club mid season will be unlikely to receive any refund as this causes immense disruption to the team and the Club.
