Registration 2019 Update
|Our 2019 registrations will be available on Monday 7 January. This year we have a new Registrar (me) and a new Registration system, so what could possibly go wrong??|
I’m sending this email in anticipation of some issues that have come up with the registrations we have attempted so far. It might be wise to print this out and have it next to your computer when you register:
Here are some things you may need to know before registering this year, as the process is a little different from previously
YOU WILL NEED A NEW PHOTO. I know that the one from 15 years ago that you’ve been using all your playing career is gorgeous (if not entirely accurate), but photos WILL NOT carry over from the previous system (other details will), and this system will not let you proceed without a photo. As far as we can tell, photos taken with an iPhone in ‘portrait’ mode upload sideways, and then the system allows 180 degree rotations- so you just get different sorts of sideways. Safest to take one with the phone upright and one with it horizontal, then just upload whichever works.
EMAIL ADDRESS IS EVERYTHING. In the previous system, you logged in with your FFA number as your user ID – this system links everything about you to your email address. When you first log in, it will ask for your email address and a password – the simplest thing will be to request a new password (which will come to your email address). When you log in, it will offer you the option to link registrations to that address, and should show you all existing prior registrations associated with that email address (eg you, your children etc). You can then select who you are registering. What this means is that if you registered yourself or others in previous years with an email address that you no longer use, THAT email address is the only way to access your previous registration details. Once you are in the system, you can change it to another address.
YOU WILL BE OFFERED A SMORGASBORD OF PACKAGES. When you first go to access the login page, you may see every ‘package’ that HPW is offering this year- there are about 30 of them. Scroll around until you find the right one for your age, gender and playing history – there may be several packages that apply to you (eg over 30s women are also eligible for All Age Women)- hopefully you know which group you are playing in, but if in doubt talk to your Age Co-ordinator or your 2018 coach or manager.
GET YOUR ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHER BEFOREHAND. If you are applying a NSW Active Kids voucher to any of your registrations, have it available as you register- the online form will require you you to enter the voucher number during registration.
PLEASE EMAIL ME RATHER THAN PHONING IN THE FIRST INSTANCE.
If things go horribly wrong, please email me at Registrar@hurlstoneparkwanderers.com.au . My phone number is also listed in the system, but like everyone else, I’ll be at work next week. It is much better for all of us if I can accumulate a bit of a log of problems over a few days, and then reply to everyone once we have sorted out a solution.I’ll send a separate “How To…” email tomorrow, but I just thought I’d let you know about some of the traps for young players beforehand
