In this section, you will need to select YES or NO to all answers, apart from 4.2 where you will have the option of uploading a copy of your Club Safeguarding policy.
To upload a cop of this policy you need to click on the Red paper icon highlighted.
In the pop-up box that appears, you then need to change the document type to Supporting document instead of Generated by COMET.
You then need to click the Choose button and upload your Clubs Policy by double clicking on it wherever it is saved on your device.
When logged in, click on the Players tab on the left hand side of the screen. Then in the drop down menu, click on the Search players button to check if the player has an existing record on COMET.
If the player has never registered for your club before, then once on the Search players page, you will firstly need to remove the organisation and your club name from the Organisation and club boxes highlighted.
By leaving these boxes blank it is now allowing you to search for players outside of your club.
However, you can only find players that are new to your club if you have one of their following details:
1 - Their COMET ID number
2 & 3 - Their Surname AND date of birth
4 - Their 6 digit number from the previous FAW registration system.
Once you have input one of these into any of the relevant boxes highlighted, just click Search.
If you have searched for the player and no results are found, then you will need to create a new record for the player on COMET in order to register them for your club.
To do this you need to click on the First registration button on the left hand side of the screen, within the Players drop down menu.
Once you have clicked the First registration button, it will take you to a blank player record which you now need to fill in.
The system will not let you proceed until all of the mandatory fields have been filled in, so it is impossible to miss something that may be needed.
The mandatory fields are highlighted in red.
As well as these fields in red, you will also need a photo of the individual and their address.
The address can be completed in the Contacts tab highlighted.
To upload a photo for the person on COMET, you can either click the Camera icon highlighted to take a photo of the person there and then with your PC/Laptop device if it has a camera (1), or click the Choose Image button to upload a photo from your device that you already have saved (2).
Once the photo has been uploaded, always remember to crop the photo by clicking the Scissors icon, or the picture will not be saved correctly on COMET (3).
Once you have completed the mandatory fields and uploaded a photo of the individual, the last mandatory field left is the person's address.
You fill this in by going onto the Contacts tab and inputting the person's postcode into the Postcode box and clicking the magnifying glass next to the box.
Once you have clicked the magnifying glass icon, a list of all the addresses will pop-up on the screen.
Simply click on the correct address and this will fill in all of the required fields.
Once you have completed the address and are satisfied that all mandatory fields have been correctly filled in, click on the Save button highlighted.
This will now begin the registration process and move it to status ENTERED.
When the registration is at stage ENTERED, it means that you have begun the process and now need to submit the registration request to the FAW.
At this point the person will have received an email containing the form which they can sign digitally to return to you via email.
Please see our user guide on video on how this can be done.
Alternatively they can also print this out to sign and then scan this back via email, or take a photo of the printed and signed form to return to you via mobile or email.
You can also click the Generate registration form button to get a copy of this form if you needed to print or send via email yourself.
To proceed with the registration you then need to click the Documents button highlighted to upload a copy of this signed form onto COMET.
Once you have clicked the Documents button, this pop-up box will appear.
Click the Plus button next to the "registration form" title which will take you onto your device to select the form to upload to COMET.
Once you have clicked Choose, simply go to wherever the registration form is saved on your device and then double-click on that document to upload it to COMET.
Once you have double-clicked on the document, the screen will take you back to the pop-up box and you will see the form sitting in the registration form section.
This means that the form is now uploaded to COMET.
You can upload as many forms as you may need so don't worry if you make a mistake or upload the wrong document! Simply upload another one and the team will review all documents.
You should now be ready to submit the registration request, so exit the pop-up box by clicking on the cross button highlighted on the top right hand side of the box.
Once back on the main page, simply click the Edit button that is next to the documents button, then click the "save as" button and then "Save as SUBMIT" button.
Once you have clicked SUBMIT on the main page, a pop-up box will then appear.
You don't need to type anything in this box unless you want to share some relevant information with the FAW player registrations team.
Simply click Yes in this pop-up box and the application will instantly be with the FAW registrations team for approval.
If there are any issues the team will return the application back to status ENTERED and you will receive an email with the reason why, in order to resolve and re-submit in the same way.
If all is ok, the status will move to CONFIRMED and the player or parent/guardian will receive an email containing their registration ID card and a copy of their personal accident insurance cover.
You will also see the player is CONFIRMED in your My Club dashboard.
