Marlborough Football will not accept any age dispensation requests below 10th grade.
Senior Football Age Allowance*: A player has the ability to play Senior Football at the age of 16 without dispensation.
*At the age of 15 a player cannot be playing Senior Football unless dispensation has been granted by the Marlborough Football GM and Grading Committee. A consent form will also be required to be signed by the player’s parents.
Maximum number of dispensations per team is 2.
Playing in both Youth & Senior Grades: A player who is 16 years of age or older (must be 16 at the start of the playing season) has the opportunity to play in both Youth & Senior Competitions for their registered Club without dispensation. Must be the same Club for both teams – You can’t dual Club register. It is the Clubs responsibility to manage the wellbeing of that player and ensure they are not playing 2 full 90 minute games in one day.
Girls: The standard dispensation for girls to play one year below their age Grade still stands.
