COVID Safety measures are still in place including the requirement for online booking each week.
 
Bookings can be made up until the session starts. Bookings cannot be made after the session start time.
 
All sessions are restricted by the number of participants permitted per session. For the issue of safety, if you have not booked a place and received confirmation, you should not attempt to drop your child off for training. You can check your bookings and cancel at any time by logging into your account on the booking site.

DEVELOPMENT CLUB - application to join

We sometimes have a limited number of places availble for children to join the club. Whether a space is available will depend on your child's age as the club is split into groups according to school year groups.

Places are allocated on a first come first served basis, with priority given to children from Tong, Back and Tolsta.

To apply for a place please download the player registration form WORD VERSION   or   PDF VERSION and email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please note your application may be subject to a waiting list so please don't use the online booking system until you have received confirmation that a place is available.

If you have any questions, or have difficulty accessing the form please get in touch.

 


SENIOR FOOTBALL - BOOKING SITE

As per Scottish Government Tier 3 sport and physical activity guidance, adult contact sport is prohibited for indoors and outdoors.

Once senior football team training resumes you can be book via Smoothbook at: https://cal.smoothbook.co/backfcseniors#/class

The new system allows bookings to be made up to 7 days in advance and stays open up to the start of the session. As part of COVID regulations, all attendances must be booked beforehand.

It is important that bookings are cancelled if you can no longer make it. The easiest way to do this is to log into your account where you can view all bookings, reschedule or cancel them.

YOUTH FOOTBALL ONLINE BOOKING - move to new system from 10th October

We will shortly be moving to a new booking system which we hope everyone will find easier and less cumbersome to navigate.

  • You will be able to purchase a payment package of 1, 5 or 10 sessions which can be redeemed against any session, team or child at any time. (you will still need to book your child in each week).
  • You will be able to create an account, from which you can double check your bookings and make cancellations.
  • Creating an account also means you won't need to enter lots of details each time.
  • Parents with more than one child will be able to book up to 3 children onto a single session at a time. No need for multiple accounts.
  • We have also listened to your feedback on the cut off deadline and so booking on the new system will open 7 days in advance and close 24hrs before the session starts.

Please understand that this deadline is absolute and final, there is no way to get around it no matter who you ask. All our coaches are volunteers and everyone is working really hard to make sure the activities that we run are both enjoyable and safe, part of this is needing to know exact numbers in advance of the session, so please bear with us.
