Games are played on 1/3 of a field, with silver goals and a size 4 ball.

Each team has approximately 7 members and are allocated by the grade coordinators. Team requests can be made on your registration form, but please be aware that you may not always get your requested team.

PLEASE NOTE that teams may request a maximum of 9 players. If your team lists more than this the club may reallocate a player at random to a team in need of players. We cannot guarantee that your team of 7-9 players will be put together however our VOLUNTEER grade coordinators will do their best depending on player and team numbers.

 

Please refer to the 14th Grade Rules  for game day etiquette.

PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT

Each in-house team requires volunteers for coach and manager, with other parents rostered to set up and take down the goals. We encourage teams to organise their own training sessions throughout the week to prepare for game day.

All parents/spectators (excluding coach) are expected to stay outside of the lines of the full-size field during games to avoid damage to the grounds.

NRF COMPETITIONS

Players taking part in the ESAFC Academy or Development Programmes are selected into NRF teams each season. These teams compete against other clubs in a relevant NRF (Northern Region Football) Competition.

Players can be selected for these teams whilst also continuing with their in-house games, or may decide to only play in their NRF team.

Youth teams play at differing days and time depending on a number of factors; these are listed below
