For our Coaches and Managers

Welcome to the BTH Raiders Soccer Club . This area is to help all our Coaches and Managers. 

BTH Raiders are a community based, grass-roots volunteer run club. Our coaches and managers volunteer their time and skills to ensure our children have a positive and productive experience playing football.


Each coach and manager needs their own FFA Number & password to register in play football.  There is no fee from playfootball.  New coaches or managers will need to create an FFA account.

If you are coaching or managing teams between the age of Under 6 to Under 18s or coaching/managing anyone younger than 18, then a Working with Children Check is required prior to registration through Playfootball.
