Despite the fact that St. Kevin’s is a fully amateur club it costs a lot of money to field 10 teams across the men and women’s competitions, three U19's and a Masters team.
Our most significant expenses are Coaching, Medical professionals, Medical supplies, VAFA affiliation fees, playing apparel, football equipment and insurances. Most of our revenue is derived from sponsors and very generous donors, coterie members (Weeping Willows) and events.
When all 316 players paid their subscriptions in season 2018 it covered only 23.4% of the costs of running our club. It was 22.6% in 2017. All SKOB players are reminded that you must be a fully paid up financial member to be eligible to play in any of the club's teams.
When you pay your subs on time it means you will be registered with the Association, you receive the on field apparel you require to represent the club, you will be coached, umpired, insured and your health and well being whilst on club activities will be monitored by appropriately qualified personnel..............apart from all the fun and enjoyment you receive by engaging in a healthy pursuit with your friends and colleagues. It's a very good deal.
Subs for 2019 are:
Men’s - $450
Women’s - $350
U19’s - $350
Masters - $250
Subs for 2019 include:
New Players will receive a full kit including playing jumper, home and away shorts, socks, a training singlet and a club polo (or similar).
Returning Players receive new socks and a training singlet. The other items of the kit which you received when you were a New Player will be replaced every 3 years.
In every instance the club maintains ownership of the jumper unless otherwise agreed.
Remember to visit SKOB’s online store for your Merchandise.
So, we strongly encourage you to pay your subs soon. Remember, our policy is "no pay, no play". This year we have added the Ezidebit system which will allow players to pay their subs over a series of regular payments . This may be helpful for students or unemployed players who may not have the means to pay their full subs in one go.
If you intend using the Ezidebit system - you will need to contact Registration Secretary Peter Macdonald (0413 754 523).
