Football & Soccer

Football or Soccer is the most popular team sport in the world! The aim of the game is simple, get a round ball into an opposition’s goal without using your hands. There a many different versions of Football/Soccer ranging from 5-a-side, Futsal or full 11-a-side games.

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!

Why is it good for me?

  • All that running and kicking will help with heart and lung strength.
  • Team environments build social skills and are great for meeting people.
  • Will build your overall fitness levels and make you feel better.

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.
