Registration links

All registration is managed by MyCOMET. Each child needs their own MyCOMET login. For help with registering or logging in, see below.

For First Kicks info, please see our First Kicks page. This will be updated through the season.

Note, you need an account for each child in MyCOMET. Sign up or login here. Once the account is set up (or updated from last year), please click on the Hillcrest United registration link below, and “purchase” the registration item for the season. If you get stuck, please read through the instructions here or registration help further down this page. It is free to register with Comet (the purchase price is set at $0) although registration won’t be confirmed until payment is made to the club account.

NZ Football has updated MyComet earlier this year.  If a parent is registered as a player/coach/referee etc. then childrens’ MyComet accounts may already be linked to their parent’s accounts. If you would like to link accounts with NZ Football, linking accounts can be requested as below.

Registration Help

Registrations are managed by MyCOMET, which is run by NZ Football. You need to have a separate account for each child in MyCOMET.

The registration process has two parts:

  1. Creating an account (if you are new to football) or updating your account (if you are a returning player)
  2. Registering for the season.

Registration is not complete until you get an email from MyCOMET notifying you of your new purchase (i.e. registration).

Setting up your account in MyCOMET

New Players

If your child is new to football this year, then you will need to sign them up to MyCOMET.

Visit the MyCOMET login page.  Click the “New User? Register” link at the bottom. You will need to fill in some basic information about your child. Please make sure you sign up using your child’s name and date of birth, not your own. Use a parent’s email address as a contact, as this is what WAIBOP will use to send out information, and what you can use to reset your password. Don’t use, for example, a student email address that may expire when they leave school, as you may not be able to access it later. You need to choose a username and password – this is what you can use to login to MyCOMET once your account is created.

When the account is created, you will receive an email asking you to verify the email address. Once you have done this, then you can login.

When you login, you will be prompted to fill in missing details (guardian name, player ethnicity, address etc). NOTE, to type in these fields, you need to click the “edit” button – you may need to scroll down to find this. You need to fill in all listed fields. You will also need to add a mobile phone number – Click “Add” to add a new contact field. We also recommend adding email addresses and cell phone numbers for both parents/guardians, and anyone else that may want to get game info each week. Then don’t forget to click “Save” to save your changes.

Now your account is created, you can register for the season. See below.

Returning Players

You will already have a MyCOMET username and password. Login at the MyCOMET login page.

If you can’t remember your username or password, click the “Forgot username/password’ link on the login form, and you can enter your email address to get your username and password mailed out to you. Note, this will send out one email per account that you have, if you have multiple children registered.

If you still can’t find your username, or have trouble logging in, please create a new support ticket at and NZ Football will help you out.

As for new users, once you have logged in you may be prompted to fill in missing contact details. To type in these fields, you need to click the “edit” button – you may need to scroll down to find this. You need to fill in all listed fields. Then don’t forget to click “Save”.

To add new contact details (cell phones, emails etc) click the “Add” button. We recommend adding email address and cell phone numbers for both parents/guardians, and anyone else that may want to get game info each week.

Now your account is created, you can register for the season.
