Gosford City Football Club Youth Teams
Playing football at Gosford City Football Club is a great way for your kids to stay fit, and learn key life skills in a safe, fun team environment, with guidance from qualified coaches.
The Dragons offer age groups across our Youth program from Under 12′s to Under 18′s, and caters for all ability levels, from those wanting to have fun with their friends, to those who dream of the big time!
Football on the coast offers both a mixed male/female Youth competition as well as a female only Women's Youth competition.
- Mixed Youth competition: offers under 12, under 13, under 14, under 15 and under 16 years teams. Games are played on Saturdays.
- Women's Youth competition: offers under 12, under 14, under 16 and under 18 years teams (2 years combined under each age group eg under 14 includes under 13 & 14's). Games are played on Sundays.
- Men's Youth competition: under 18's, games played on Sundays.
Whether players choose to play in the Mixed Youth or Women's youth competition is personal choice and each option is equally supported by Gosford City FC. We want our female players to be comfortable and happy- and so support their ability to choose which competition they play in.
HOW WE CREATE TEAMS
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 12-18 years||11||16|
We aim to have our teams created at the beginning of March, teams must be submitted to Central Coast Football for inclusion in the competition by March 10th. Registrations can be accepted after that date but only where we have an available spot in a team. We encourage those wanting to invite friends to play to do so early to ensure they don’t miss out.
PLEASE NOTE- FOR PLAYERS WANTING TO PLAY UP AN AGE GROUP: All requests to play in a different age group than your child’s birth year age group need to be made to your relevant Football Manager. The club must assess each request individually to ensure player safety and fairness to all our teams. We will wherever possible accommodate requests. Players wanting to play up in a team in under 9’s and over must attend grading- for both their actual age group and the age group they want to play in.

18 YEARS YOUTH MENS:
Gosford City FC is pleased to announce the appointment of Jacob Jones to the position of Head Coach for the Club’s under 18‘s and under 20s Teams for Season 2022.
Jacob has been involved with the Club for a number of years now, coaching the 16s last year and acting as the Co-Coach of Gosford City‘s SAP Academy.
Jacob will be assisted by Gosford City‘s Club Coach, Gavin Drummond. Gavin has been involved with Gosford City for over 20 years, and has held roles such as Football Manager Youth, Football Manager Junior, SAP Academy Coach and last years under 20s Coach.
Jacob has already commenced preseason training for the under 18‘s, and both Jacob and Gavin will be commencing Preseason for both teams in January 2022.
President, Col Seggie, said that “this initiative will cement a future for these players and provide the best opportunity to be considered for Gosford City‘s Division 1 Squad in coming Seasons”. Certain players may have early inclusion in the 1st Division Squad, and both Teams will have regular Training Sessions with 1st Division. This is a real opportunity for all players to be considered for a higher level of football, but there is no obligation either.
Gosford City is now inviting any players who may be interested to join in Preseason training, with a view to joining one of these teams.
For more information, please contact Gavin Drummond on 0411 557 133 or Jacob Jones on 0409 049 456.
