Both forms are provided in Maltese and English.

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.
Fees have remained the same as last season:
Children Born On Training Sessions Per Week Fee 1998-2002 (Under 11 - 15) 3 €160 2003-2004 (Under 9 - 10) 2 €145 2005-2007 (Under 6 - 8) 2 €135 2008 (Kinder) 1 €75
We accept cash and cheques. (No credit cards accepted).
