We have three tiers of club membership. These are designed to accommodate the different life stages of our members to encourage participation across all ages, as well as strengthen our association with Barker Alumni's.
Worker | $440
A worker is defined as anyone who is not a University or TAFE student.
Student | $390
This membership tier is for any current University or TAFE student who did not attend Barker College.
Alumni Student | $340
This membership tier is for Barker Alumni's currently studying at University or TAFE.
Additional fee disclosures
The fees above represent the fees associated with club registration for the 2017 season. They may not be reflective of costs in future years. OB FC provides playing kits but retains ownership of these kits, which are to be returned at the end of the season. Kit socks are not included and will need to be purchased separately. Social activities or branded merchandise are separate to registration.
Should, through illness or accident a member suffer a season ending injury the club will refund membership based on the following schedule of season games played. The below figures are in addition to insurance proceeds received through the Football NSW's insurance scheme. Please note that the club does not have any of its costs associated with registering players with the FFA, Football NSW or the NSFA refunded.
0-3 competition games played = $150 refund
4-6 competition games played = $75 refund
7+ competition games played = $0 refund
The registration process is completely online and must be done by each player wishing to play for OB FC. We only accept online payments. The registration process is intuitive and reasonably straight-forward. We have provided detailed instructions to guide each players registration and maintain a dedicated club contact to assist should there be any difficulties.
