Our senior competition is a mix of casual and novice players up to the elite, with teams graded into appropriate divisions to match their skill level.
Teams can select the grade that best fits their level,
A – COMPETITIVE – eg. Young fast whipper snappers, senior prem players
B - SENIORS – eg. Experienced / O35's with a couple of younger players
C - FUN – eg. Families, company teams, inexperienced players of any age
Every level is mixed male / female with at least two females per team on the field at all times. This makes it fun for everyone and allows more people to come down a get involved.
Seniors kick off at either 6pm or 7pm with games being 50mins (2x halves 25mins) and a short break for half time and a breather.
Our youth competition is run similar to our senior comp. We aim to keep all players involved in the game over the summer period to keep them developing and growing as footballers.
We have various divisions to suit all teams and players,
13th / 14th Grade Girls
16th Grade Girls
13th / 14th Grade Boys
15th / 16th Grade Boys
All youth games kick off at 5pm and run the same 50mins like the seniors.
Timings are run by a hooter to makes things easier and teams are responsible for setting up or packing down their fields depending on the time to help out the club.
The kitchen and bar will be open for all teams on the Monday night so everyone can enjoy some hot food a cold beverage before or after their game.
Senior and Youth team Fees for the 2023-2024 season will be same as last year at $400 per team.
Summer Football for juniors is different from winter league football in many ways.
The main one is you do not have to belong to a club, even have played the game before to get involved. Summer Football is all about having a fun kick around with your friends. You organise you own team of school friends, mates, colleges or family to play. No fuss, just great times.
Leagues are open for mixed teams of boys and girls for ages;
9-10yrs combined, 11-12yrs combined
Games for juniors are on a Friday night. All games are 50mins, 25mins each way with a short break for half time.
9-10th grade will kick off at 5:00pm with 11-12th grade kicking off at 6:00pm. This will allow 5mins for teams to leave and arrive at the field without too much fuss.
All teams are asked to help either setup or pack down their field depending on which time and field you are playing on.
Junior Fees for the 2023-2024 season will be $350 per team.

Junior Game Day Info
9th / 10th grade teams will need to set up the fields with 11th / 12th grade teams packing everything away.
We will only be using fields 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B and 5A ( 11s/12s only) as indicated on the map. Fred Taylor Park field map is downloadable below. All the goals for use will be stored under the trees next to the carpark or against the fence for field 5 and the nets will be located by the seats on field 3 in Red or Blue lid wheelie bin.
We have scheduled the games so that there is 5 mins between games, allowing for teams to leave and arrive without too much fuss so teams can finish and start on time. All game timing is done on the hooter and only the hooter. Each team needs to provide a referee for a half (or the whole game thats entirely up to you ) but this is just to support the players and the game.
At the completion of every game a team manager must bring up to the Gameday Manager the game result and Player of the Day award recipient. Every Friday will have prize givings for both grades and thesse will be done upstairs in the clubrooms or if its sunny outside on the grass hill leading up to the main changing rooms and club. We will have the tuck shop open for drinks, hot chips and ice blocks, and the bar will be operating for adults.
