What’s Happening?

The first activity for the season is our try out days commencing Sunday 4 February at 9am at Len Shearer Reserve for three weeks each Sunday. The sessions last for about an hour and is a great opportunity to come down and meet other players as well as the coaches.

Our open day is 11 February and again everyone is welcome to attend!

How Does It All Work?

There are always lots of questions with regards to the upcoming season of which some of the key points are as follows.

  • When are the try out days?

Our first try out day is Sunday 4 February at 9am at Len Shearer Reserve, for three consecutive weeks. A great opportunity for girls to come down to the club, have a kick and meet other players and coache.

  • How are teams selected?

Teams are selected on age groups and not “graded” so all girls have great opportunities to be part of a team. Teams are finalised in March 2018 ready for the start of the season. Please refer to the table below to confirm your likely team.

  • When does the season start?

Traditionally the season starts towards the end of April 2018 until September 2018. Check out www.footballwest.com.au for more information on the schedule for the season.

  • When do I register?

Registrations for season 2018 are open now. Details are available on our website: click here

  • Am I covered by insurance?

As part of your registration with Football west you are covered by insurance. Please refer to www.footballwest.com.au for further information and the policy.

  • Will we have a coach?

Most age groups have a coach but we are always looking for other volunteers to help out or become a team manager. Let us know if your parents or friends may be keen to assist.

  • Where do we train and play home games?

Once teams are all finalised your coach will make contact with you to confirm training nights and times. Training could be at different venues depending on pitch allocations but all are within the City Of Melville. Home games again are within the City of Melville on a Sunday morning whereas away games vary across the suburbs.

  • What gear do I need for games?

The club will supply you with a playing shirt, shorts and socks which you look after for the season. You must also wear soccer boots and shin pads for every game, else you wont be allowed to play due to insurance purposes.

  • What should I wear for training?

Wear suitable training attire that is comfortable and rain proof (we sometime train in the rain!).  Soccer boots and shin pads are also compulsory for all training sessions.

 

If you have any other queries please contact Steve Atkins your Vice President of the Girls teams.
