What are the season dates?

Summer 2023/2024
Winter 2024

What age group will my child play in?

Age Group Information

Age Bracket Concerns

A few members have reached out to us to identify that they have some questions or concerns about how the move from “odd age brackets” to “even age brackets” will affect their child.

The important thing to keep in mind when considering this move from odds to evens is that it’s still a two-year age bracket, so there will always be “top age” and “bottom age” kids within each age bracket (whether or not we have odd or even age groups – U13 vs. U14)

These children will also be graded & put into teams and divisions within the competition according to their and their peer’s skill levels.

When do registrations close for Summer 23/24 Season?

Northside Wizards Clubs can accept registrations freely until 18/9/2023 when they nominate the number of teams they are entering into the competition for the season. From there, if they have room within teams, they may still accept registrations at any point throughout the season to fill teams if they have space.

Is there an option for a payment plan?

Northside Wizards is happy to advise that we are offering an instalment option, this time with 4 fortnightly instalments which sees full registration fees paid before the season commences.

The dates for those selecting instalment options are:

Instalment #1:   At time of registration + BQ membership if required

Instalment #2:   29/08/2023

Instalment #3:   12/09/2023

Instalment #4:   26/09/2023

Instalment amounts are $107.25

BQ membership fees are $35.50/$71.01

Any registrations coming in after any of the dates, their payment at time of registration will include any amounts up to that point.

Example: Registering on 01/09/2023, would see the payment at time of registration being both Instalment #1 & Instalment #2 + BQ membership if required. The rest of the fees would then be paid across the remaining dates.
