The Youth Football Association Enrolment Form
The YFA is instructing all local nurseries to fill in the U11 and U9 forms. You are therefore kindly asked to fill in the appropriate form below:
For children aged 9 to 10 years old please fill in the Under 11 form.
For children aged 6 to 8 years old please fill in the Under 9 form.
Both forms are provided in Maltese and English.
Please attach an original birth certificate and two passport photos to this form.
The regulation states that whatever age a player turns in the first year of the season, becomes the age group for football:
Category Training Sessions Per Week Ball Size Under 5 1 3 Under 6 2 3 Under 7 2 3 Under 8 2 3 Under 9 2 3 Under 10 2 4 Under 11 3 4 Under 12 3 4 Under 13 3 4 Under 14-15 3 5 Under 16-17 3 5
Please note that the Birkirkara FC Youth Nursery has a one ball each player policy.
The registration fee is a one-off seasonal payment that covers some of the general costs of the club such as: nursery affiliation, ground maintenance, training equipment, facility improvements as well as administration costs. The club covers further costs by raising funds from social events which we encourage you to participate, sponsorship and with contributions from various organisations.
The nursery’s expenditure is a huge burden on its finances and registration money is vital to the nursery’s welfare and future existence. Guardians are expected to pay these fees promptly.
