New Registration Process

In 2022 the SANFL moved its Registration process to PlayHQ. Its a new platform that is being consistently added to and will ultimately make administrating simpler. So whilst the process is similar and even simpler – there are a few pointers listed below that may assist.

To register, go to Register | PlayHQ or search the PlayHQ page and search for Colonel Light Gardens Football Club.

Registering is for all players, volunteer team officials and team managers. Coaches are required to register via CoachAFL website and will receive information about this from the AFL in the next few weeks

All non-playing positions will require that you have a Working With Children Check completed and approved before registering. To obtain a WWCC Screening Unit – Applications – It’s a two-minute process.

As this is new platform everyone must create an account. IMPORTANT make sure that when you create your account it’s in your name NOT YOUR CHILDS, so fill out your details.

With your account created you are able to register a player, volunteer or team manager. Each person can only be registered individually. All account and registered players information etc will be retained for future years.

Claim Profile: During the process, to enable all previous player information to link with this years registration, you will be asked to ‘Claim a Profile’. This will check first/last names, DOB and gender with information from previous years regos.

If these details are correct and you HAVE NOT changed your email address it will be Claimed successfully.

If you are using another email address and all other listed details above are the same AND you have access to this previous email address, click verify the email and a Code will be sent to your old email address to enter and Claim the Profile.

If you DO NOT HAVE ACCESS to the previous (2023 Registration) address ie; its from an earlier place of employment or you have changed your email address simply click Contact Support at bottom of this page and it will be rectified by a PLayHQ staff member.
