Gosford City Football Club is the ideal place to introduce your kids to Soccer!
With introductory, non-competition age groups in our Juniors from Under 8′s to Under 11's.
Your kids will learn basic football and social skillsin a fun team environment, fully supervised by our coaches.
Our Home Ground is Gavenlock Oval in Narara, otherwise known as the Dragon's Den.
The seaon's games run from April till August each year.
Training is held on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons at either Gavenlock Oval or Paddy Clifton Oval. When training is held is dependent on your Team's Coach's availability.
We are a Grass Roots sporting Club run by volunteers. All our teams have a Coach and a Manager, these roles are filled by parent/family volunteers from the team. No experience is necessary and the Club provides information and training on how to do these roles.
HOW WE CREATE TEAMS:
GRADING 8 – 11 YEARS
There is no grading for this age group. Player's can choose to play with friends or current team mates if they wish. If you would like to be placed in a specific team, please include this information in the provided comment section of your registration, so your child can be allocated into that team. We will endeavour to keep teams together if you wish. Under 8s is a semi-graded competition and teams will be allocated their “grade” at a team level by our Junior Football Manager (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced). Team assessment will be done as part of the Trial Games.
Under 9s to Under 11s
You can choose whether you wish to have your child placed into a team based on their relative skill level, or you can choose to play with friends and/or a specific team.
We hold grading days for our under 9's to under 18's- IT IS A REQUIREMENT THAT ALL PLAYERS ATTEND GRADING. At grading players can be graded individually to be placed in a competitively graded team, or those players wishing to form their own team can have their team graded to ensure they're playing in the correct level of competition for their teams overall skill level.
For those wanting to play with friends and create their own team these are the numbers of players that are required:
|Team Age Group||Players on field||Max players in team|
|Under 8 & 9 years||7||
No maximum, but we recommend having 2 -3 subs
= team of 9-10 players
|Under 10 & 11 years||9||13|
