Under 12s to Under 18s
Who is it for?
Under 12s to Under 18s.
The age group a player qualifies for is based on their age as at 31st December of the previous year.
However, special dispensation may be granted by the association based on the year at school or other special circumstances. It is also a recommendation that no player should play in an age group more than two (2) years higher than they are qualified for.
To give some examples:
We also have Development Squads in the U12 to U15 age groups. You can read more about these on the Development Squads page.
What is it?
Once you enter the Under 12 age group, you will be playing on a full field – 11 v 11 but with match duration ranging from 35-45 minute halves.
It’s a little more serious than Small Sided Football because we play other teams in the same Association and there is a competition table. But we still want you to have a good time - because we can’t all be Cahill, Rogic or Ryan - and if you enjoy playing right through school, there’s no reason why you can’t go on playing for years and years yet. In fact, right until you’re quite old ... like our North Sydney Over 45s team!
When are games on?
Matches take place on Saturdays (for mixed teams) or Sundays (for girls only teams) and are generally aligned with Terms 2 and 3 of school. This year the season starts on Saturday 1 April 2017 for mixed teams and Sunday 2 April 2017 for girls only teams.
Game times vary from week to week but kick-off times are generally between 8.30am to 11.40am. There are no games or training during school holidays (but we do hold coaching clinics during the holidays).
What about training?
Training takes place once a week. Please check the Juniors/Youth training schedule.
How much does it cost for the season?
The fee (all age groups U12- U18) for 2018 is $325.00 and includes:
The fee does not include football boots or shin pads. These can be bought from Olympus Sports in Neutral Bay who offer a discount to North Sydney United players.
How do I register?
You may be able to choose which team you are in and, as far as possible, we will try to accommodate any requests to play with friends. Registration is available through the MyFootballClub website.
Once registered, what happens?
An Age Coordinator or Team Manager will be in touch with you to let you know about training and other arrangements.
