Whether it is an organised game, a kick around in the park with friends or just you improving your skills on your own, Football/Soccer is a great way to get out of the house and will provide endless amounts of fun!

How much will it cost me?
All you need is a round ball, a decent amount of space and something to mark out a goal to have game, or in other words completely free!
Joining a club will have a membership fee that can range from $50-$200 depending on age and level. Best contact your nearest club to find this out if you are looking to play competitively.
What do I need to play?
Some clothing you can run around in, an open space, a round ball and something to mark out the goals (jumpers, water bottles, anything you like really!)
If you are going to play competitively for a club or your school then you are going to need to get yourself a pair of boots with plastic or short springs and some shin pads.
