Adult football is a program for adults (or older teenagers) 17+ years old.
The focus for this competition is to provide a safe, fun environment for adults, both young and young at heart, to begin, continue or reignite their footballing prowess.
We have found that players in the senior competition teams are often made up of players that have played soccer for years, to players that hung their boots up just to find them back on their feet right through to players that have never played soccer before but have always wanted to (or have a child playing) and usually do not call themselves a player when they first turn up.
Due to this, we have ensured our coaching team is specifically selected with this in mind and are able to work with the variety of players that may make up the team.
Players will learn the basics skills of soccer including kicking a ball, passing, dribbling and stopping. As well as this, they will learn intermediate soccer skills including the basic rules of the game, positional play, goal keeping and team work. Advanced soccer skills will be taught in relation to technical play but may be limited by the ability of the greater team.
Learning at this stage is achieved through role-based learning, sit-down discussions, practical skills development, games and some good old-fashioned hard work.
As most players in this competition are adults, we expect players, coaches and other volunteers alike to treat eachother with respect and dignity.
The program is conducted 3 times a week: 1 – 1.5 hour training on a Tuesday and Thursday night and a match against another club – usually anytime between Friday night and Sunday afternoon.
Registration covers the cost for the above but players are welcome to register for training only (no matches) – we simply request to be advised of this desire to ensure we do not count your child into the equation when determining competition team numbers.
– Players will be playing for points and may potentially play in a finals series. However, the club focus is on team spirit and play – not results! Yes we all like to see our teams go well but we do not tolerate discrimination or exclusion to achieve this.
