Football West News

Football West will again be running a 5-a-side competition for Hyundai SAP-aged players in the off season.

This is following on from a successful competition which ran earlier this year during Term 1.

The upcoming competition will take place over two terms, beginning in Term 4 of 2019 and finishing in Term 1 of 2020.

It is open to players born between 2007-2010, with games played on Saturday mornings from November 9.

All matches will be held at Gibbney Reserve in Maylands with kick-off times between 8am and noon.

Other details include:

  • Games are 2 x 20 minute halves (40 mins)

  • The competition will have two age brackets – U10s & U12s

  •  15 games in total

  •  The cost per team is $1155 (inclusive of GST). The recommended squad size is seven players, which works out at $165 per player

  • Matches will be officiated by Football West appointed referees

Football West Skill Acquisition Trainer Brad Hassell said: “We were really pleased with how the 5-a-Side competition went earlier in the year.

“In terms of exposing young players to more game time, especially during the off season, we believe this competition provides a fantastic opportunity for players to learn the game by playing the game.”
