For players wanting to play up an age group, approval will need to be sought from the Committee. It is the preference that all players play in their correct age group.

Teams will be finalised once registrations are complete there are enough players to fill a team with Football Victoria. Should there be either too few or too many for a team, the club will review the affected age groups, contact the affected players and work to offer alternative teams options.

Sponsorship

To assist in keeping our fees as competitive as we can, sponsorship plays a big part in this. The club is always interested in talking to businesses that are keen to sponsor local community clubs.

All cases will be reviewed by CPSC Executive Committee to decide the course of action that must be taken after any incident. Action could result in any parent/player/spectator having suspensions/bans from the Club, its grounds, and Events.

    5. TEAM SELECTION AND GRADING
    The objectives of the Casey Panthers grading process are to place every player in a team that will:
    - Allow players to play in a competitive environment that best represents their level of football skill and ability,
    - maximise opportunities to develop and improve their football skills, game awareness and player decision making, and
    - Allow players to learn from their peers and develop and appreciation and love of the game.

    > Sub Juniors (Under 7's to Under 11's)
    No formal player grading. Teams are formed on a social basis, i.e. same school, friends, training night preference etc. with consideration to the a players ability and skill level. Parents and players are advised that teams formed are not permanent either for that year or for future years. The emphasis is on creating a fun environment providing opportunity to develop skills and an enjoyment for football. No match results are recorded at this level.
    > Juniors (Under 12 to Under 18)
    A grading process will be put into effect. The grading process ensures that every player is placed in a team where they have maximum opportunities to develop their football skills, enhance their technical development and have equal opportunity to play. The overall aim is to have players in a team where they have these opportunities, able to develop a team structure, are with players of similar abilities and play in a division against other teams of similar abilities.
    > Number of players per team
    Ideally, U10 and U11 teams will have a maximum of 12 players (includes three substitutes), U12 and U13 Teams will have a maximum of 13 players (includes four substitutes), and older teams will have a maximum of 16 players (includes five substitutes). While Casey Panthers endeavours to limit the number of players per team, this is not always possible due to number of registered players.
    > Seniors
    All Senior teams will be selected by the respective senior coach
    > Disputes
    Wherever possible, the Committee will do its best to address and resolve parent and player concerns.

    6. PLAYER GAME TIME
    For all junior and sub junior (U7 to U18) teams equal game time is not guaranteed. FFV policy states that players should have at least 35% game time across the entirety of the season (unless illness or injury conflicts with this) and CPSC adheres to this policy. For all senior teams game time is at the discretion of the coaching staff. It is an expectation that all players attend all compulsory training sessions as indicated by the relevant coach and to arrive at games at the time specified by the coach or team manager. If acceptable reasons are not provided for either of the above, coaches may decide to lessen game time for the player. This applies to all players in a team regardless of their ability.

    7. TRAINING
    The club and the coach will determine the day/s and time of your weekly training sessions. Football is a team sport and it is expected that all team members will attend training. In the event of a training session being cancelled, then the Club will communicate this ASAP through the agreed communication channels used by the team. Should team members not be able to attend training, they are required to communicate this with the team manager.
    When attending training you should arrive and be ready before the start time, must wear Shin Guards for training and games, bring a water bottle and a jumper. Football is a winter sport and training will be held during cold and rainy conditions.

    8. MEDICAL
    In the case of serious injury or a medical emergency where either a parent or guardian is not present, the member grants permission to the coach, team manager or other member of the Club to seek and obtain medical treatment or hospitalisation. Members agree to meet all medical expenses for urgent medical attention which is required and is not covered by the insurance policy held by the Club. Members acknowledge that football is a contact sport and accordingly shall make no claim against the Club nor seek reimbursement by the Club for any medical or like expenses incurred as a result of any injury suffered in the course of training and/or competition save for any damages incurred which may be recovered against the Club as a result of a negligent act or omission by the Club or by its duly appointed agents.
    Members acknowledge and understand that non-financial players are not covered by insurance and will not be permitted to play until registration fees are part paid or paid in full.

    9. PHOTOS
    Casey Panthers SC is dedicated to the responsible handling of personal and health information and is strongly committed to protecting an individual's right to privacy. In the interests of protecting the privacy and rights of all club members and particularly our younger players (under 18yrs), CPSC has implemented the following policies and guidelines when publishing images or text on the web.
    During your participation in club activities, photographs may be taken of you. CPSC requests the right to publish these images in the promotion of the club or its events and projects. Photographs or images submitted to CPSC with the intention of making them accessible on the website or social media, will be carefully examined to ensure that they are appropriate and will not attract any negative attention before being made available on the website.
    Images of minors (under 18yrs): No personal information (e.g. names, addresses, contact numbers, email addresses) will accompany photographs/images on the CPSC website and social media. Images of junior players (i.e. under 18yrs) will be captioned with basic information about the game only (e.g. under 12's CPSC versus Berwick, 6th June 2020). If players are identified by first name used in articles, prior permission will be obtained from a parent or guardian.
    Images of players 18yrs and older: Name or game information (e.g. 2nd Division, CPSC versus Seaford, 7th June 2020) will be used as captions for images of players 18 years or older. Where images identify players by name, formal permission is required. Unless otherwise formally advised, CPSC does not endorse or take responsibility for any individual who photographs or captures video footage of players, officials and other members of the public. Casey Panthers SC advises all individuals who intend to take photographs and/or videos of games involving CPSC players to obtain consent from the relevant coach/team manager. It is advised that individuals also obtain permission from opposition coaches/team managers. Casey Panthers SC does not take responsibility for individuals who fail to adhere to this guideline.
    When registering, I agree to the above policy and grant permission to CPSC the right to use my physical likeness without restriction in any promotion or promotional material created by CPSC for promotion of its program, projects or events.
    No fee or remuneration will be provided for appearance in any Casey Panthers Soccer Club program and/or related promotions, and unlimited use of this image will be granted for this purpose only.
    Images and photos may not be copied or downloaded without permission of the Casey Panthers SC. Casey Panthers SC does not take responsibility for inappropriate use of images or footage obtained during the course of games involving CPSC teams, or for images downloaded from the internet. Permission given to publish images on the Casey Panthers SC can only be revoked in writing.

    10. GRIEVANCE
    If a player, parent or guardian has a grievance with any aspect of their team, then they are to raise it with their team manager, who will then raise the issue with the coach. After this process, if the matter has not been resolved, then the team manager should report this matter to the Secretary for further discussion and resolution.
