FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What day do we play matches?
At WUSC, our Miniroos Teams play on Saturdays, while our older Junior teams play on Sundays.
If your younger children can only play Sundays, let us know and we can see how we can help!
Under 8/9/10/11 Teams play on Saturdays.
Under 12/13/14/15/16/18/20 Teams play on Sundays.
Our FFV and VCFA Senior Men play on Saturdays.
Our FFV Women play Sundays.
What time are the matches?
Times can vary depending on which club we are playing against and by what age group your team plays in!
Under 8/9/10/11 Boys Teams will likely play on Saturday mornings. A general rule will be that the younger teams play earlier, but this is not set in stone and each club can set their own kick off times!
Our Under 12/13/14/15/16/17/20 Boys Teams play on Sundays. The set times can only be used as a guideline as clubs with limited facilities may require changes in kick off times.
The suggested times are as follows:
U12 - 9:00am
Where will the matches be played?
Whitehorse United SC can be found in the Eastern Region of the Football Federation of Victoria.
Therefore our matches will be played against other teams in the Eastern region.
The area generally encompasses an area between Glen Waverley, Doncaster, Richmond and even sometimes out to Monbulk (or even Healesville!).
On average, allow 15-20 minutes to drive to an away game. Sometimes it might be 5 minutes, sometimes it might be 45!
When does my team have training?
(NOTE: Pre-Season Training for February-March will likely have different times/nights as we only have limited access to Terrara Park)
At WUSC, a lot of your training timetable will depend on the availability of your coach!
We encourage all our teams to train twice a week, although some of our younger teams will only train once a week.
During the season (April-September) we have full access to Terrara Park every day of the week, so training could be on any one (or two ) nights.
Generally teams will either train in between 5:00-7:00pm, or between 7:00-8:45 pm.
Majority of our training sessions will be 90-minutes, but younger age groups may only train for 60-75 minutes.
How much will it cost to play for the season?

What do I wear to training?
You must wear shin pads at all times when you get to training.
We don't want people to wear official match uniform at training if it can be avoided.
During the season you will also be required to wear soccer boots.
What age group is my child in?
Age Groups are selected by year of birth!
The age your child is turning in any given year will be the team they are in.
eg. If you are turning 11 in 2020, you play Under 11s!
For Season 2020 >
Under 8 - Born 2012
Girls teams may not have a team in each age group, so there may be two age groups combined (eg Under 15/16 Girls - Born 2004/5)
When do I need to pay?
For Season 2020, an initial deposit of $100 will be paid prior to the February Trials.
Full registration payments will only be open once team selection is finalised.
To play in any matches against other clubs you must have paid in full and registered to play with the FFV.
Payments can be made via Direct Debit or EFTPOS machine at the club. No registration payments are able to be made by cash. If you need to pay by cash you will need to make a deposit at a Bendigo Bank branch.
Full payments are ususally made in March.
How do I get my uniform?
Once teams have been selected and players are paid and registered we will commence the uniform handout.
Socks and shorts are yours to keep!
The playing top is yours for the season, but we will need it back once the season is finished.
If you're interested to know what you'll be turning out in, we wear yellow tops, blue shorts, and yellow socks!
When will the teams be picked?
Junior Team Selection will be completed immediately following the Team Trials period at the start of February in any given year.
Selection will completed within one week of your final Trial Practice Match, so if the final trial match is on February 15th, the selection should be made by February 22nd.
You will be notified by email.
If age groups are still looking or players following the Team Trials period, we guarantee you will know about it! It will be all over our website and in our emails!
