Bentleigh Cobras is a not for profit community soccer club.

Your Club Fees are used to pay for

  • FFV Membership

  • Insurance

  • Players uniforms

  • Glen Eira Council grounds fees

  • Club house cleaning & maintenance costs

  • FirstAid & safety equipment

  • Training & match equipment

  • Coaching

Sponsorship represents the principle source of investment for the Club.

The club also raises a small amount of money from running the Club Canteen and organising fun events for the kids outside of training & matches.

Your role as a parent

As a parent your role in your child's soccer activities needs to be far more than a taxi driver to and from training / matches.

We ask that parents support the club by:

  1. Volunteering as Team Manager for your child's team to administer the team schedule and parents roster. (Team Managers and Coaches are required sign Child Safe Code of Conduct and have Working With Children Certificate) Download Application Form here 

  2. Volunteering time to work in the Club Canteen on training and match days (outside of  your child's gamed time).
    The club has put in place a SignUp system to allow parents to schedule their participation at the club canteen before / after their child's matches.

  3. Helping  on match days when playing at  Victory Park  to set up the field/playing area.

  4. Looking after our equipment - damaged gear detracts from the children's safety and  enjoyment and in the end costs us all more in club fees.

  5. Finding Sponsors or organizing Fund Raising activities.

  6. Think of some other way that you can contribute to making the Caulfield Cobras an even better club - your suggestions are welcome.


As parents our involvement at the club does not go unrecognized by our children.

They see our efforts as a further expression of our support for them.

Sometimes they may even acknowledge it to you ... someday.

Remember that you are the greatest role model they will ever have .

The Club will provide a roster  in which all Junior families will be asked to contribute their time volunteering as Team Manager , helping on home game days in the Club Canteen or helping to set up for Seniors Home games. This is in addition to assigned activities for your child's team as every parent is expected to help out their own child's team.
