Playing football at WCR

The Opportunity

At West Coast Rangers there are opportunities for everyone to play football - community and competitive teams for girls, boys, men and woman.

There are both winter and summer leagues as well as various festivals and tournaments. There are also a lot of development opportunities at each level for those that want them.

The Club wants to encourage everyone to play, to reach their potential and enjoy the game.

Up until the end of Youth Football, we play football in grades based on the players age on the 1st of January in the year they are playing, if you are 9 years old on the 1st January, and due to turn 10 in that year, then you are playing ‘under 10’s (U10) for that year.

At the Senior level we also have our premier Men’s and Women’s team’s which we aim to play in the highest football competitions available to us. Having these teams establishes what we refer to as an ‘Aspirational Model’ – play football at whatever level suits you and love the game!

If you have the talent and skill, you can aspire to play at the highest level and we will help you get there!

Levels of Play

The 'Advanced Player Pathway'

West Coast Rangers believes in a ‘player first’ approach and all our decisions around players and teams are made on that basis.

All young players develop at different times both in respect to their skill level and strength. The majority of football players enjoy the game simply by learning and developing in a Community setting. Some players have higher levels of ambition or talents and skills that they would like to develop and the Club provides an Advanced Player Pathway to support these players. This pathway provides different options for each area of football (Whole of Football, Junior and Youth).

The Club has good evidence around how our Advanced Player Pathway can make a real difference to a player. It is all about time on the ball, time with qualified coaches and time with similar players. We follow best practice approaches using qualified coaches.
