Our mission is to provide young people with quality soccer coaching in an inclusive and supportive environment in which player development, safety and wellbeing are our main concern. We will achieve this by providing coaches who have strong soccer backgrounds and are FFA accredited, coaching from the FFA National Curriculum, and provide a family friendly environment that encourages fair play.
We are part of the Plympton Sporting & Recreation Club. We share the grounds with Senior Soccer, Collegiate Soccer plus seniors and juniors from Aussie Rules as well as cricket. The Plympton Sporting & Recreation Club Committee governs the sporting codes and the grounds are owned and maintained by the Marion City Council.
Junior Soccer, Collegiate Soccer and Senior Soccer are separate codes, with the Juniors playing in the State League, Collegiate playing in the Collegiate League and the Seniors playing in the Amateur League. Juniors and Seniors play their respective games on Sundays, Collegiate play on Saturdays. Junior Soccer, Senior Soccer and Junior Aussie Rules all compromise to share the ground on Sunday mornings, with Senior Aussie Rules playing on Saturday afternoons. We all also share the oval facilities on weeknights to ensure everyone has access for training. Cricket occupies the oval between early October and end of March.
Training usually takes place on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5pm thru to 8.00pm - pitch space is limited so check with your own team. Some of the younger teams will only train once per week.
Pre season training commences around February once student’s return to school and the temperatures begin to fall. Teams will be advised accordingly.
Training sessions can run slightly earlier or later to accommodate individual team requirements.
We cannot function without YOUR support
Our Club is run by volunteers, coaches, team managers, marking the pitch, equipment management, finance... they are all volunteers and crucial in making our Club run.
If you have time, irrespective of how large or small, please let us know, 200+ kids rely on you to keep playing.
