TEAMS AND PLAYERS
We play in the Sydney Hills Football Association Inc (SHFA) and have teams for all ages and levels of abilities, for both girls and boys, from Under 5 (turning 5 in 2015) upwards. We have Over 35 and female-only teams as well as Ladies teams dependent on numbers at registration. In 2015, we fielded 48 competition teams with 720 members and we expect similar numbers in 2016.
Mixed/Mens games are scheduled for Saturdays, with games being played sometimes on Sunday if washed out on Saturday. Female only teams are scheduled for Sundays. In 2016 Sydney Hills is conducting a female only competition for U9s, U11s, U13s, U15s, U17s, U21s as well as All Age Ladies & O35s Divisions.
The Committee fully supports the development of female soccer and is looking to expand the number of female players within the club. Girls have the option of playing in a mixed team up to U16 age. Additionally, we also have in-house skills competitions for boys and girls aged from 5 to 7 in 2016. It is an internally run, non-competitive learning program focused on skills development and small sided games. It is a great way for children to develop basic ball skills and find out whether they enjoy playing the game. There is no travelling to other clubs and there are no training sessions, just the Saturday morning sessions.
U8 to O45 teams play a home & away competition throughout the Hills District.
