Garden Suburb Football Club is seeking applications for coaches to become part of the 2018 ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off for Girls program and MiniRoos Step Up program.

ALDI MiniRoos Kick-Off for Girls is Northern NSW Footballs introductory football program for girls aged 4 – 9. The program uses short, game-based sessions to introduce the sport of football to newcomers in a fun and inclusive way and provides grassroots football participants with more opportunities to try the world game

MiniRoos Step Up is designed for both girls and boys aged 6-11, who already have foundational football skills. This program offers young players the opportunity to continue their MiniRoos experience at the next level.

Both programs run for 8 weeks during term 4 (22ndOctober – 10thDecember) on Monday afternoons.

Just Kick It – Women’s Football Program Pilot Program

Just Kick It – Women’s Football Program Pilot Program

As a family orientated club, Garden Suburb Football Club has an enthusiastic approach to expanding footballing options for females.

We invite you to participate in our “Just Kick It – Women’s Football Program” this summer.

With new & “retired” players in mind (but not limited to), you will have the opportunity to discover for the first time or rediscover the basics of football.

Our vision is to deliver a program that offers women a relaxed, fun, connected environment, where you can be yourself and challenge yourself free of judgement, all whilst doing some outdoor fitness with mates.

In addition to this pilot program, we are promoting our social 6 a side women’s competition, which will also run on the same night, emphasising a judgement free zone.

To be notified of the program details as they become available, register your interest by completing the attached form and emailing it to gsfcsummerfootball@gmail.com

Expression of Interest – Pilot Program

2019 Junior Playing Shirts – Sponsorship Opportunities Available

Next season we are updating the junior kits with a fresh new strip.

The intent is that each junior will keep their shirts at the end of the season.

We are looking for front of shirt sponsors for junior teams to help offset the cost of the kit. We can also accommodate back of shirt and sleeve if teams or sponsors require this.

Sponsorship for front of shirt is as follows;

  • U6 and U7 – $500 for the entire age group (Boys or Girls)
  • U8 through U18 – $500 for an individual team

Options exist for rear of shirt sponsors if the front of shirt is taken.

For those that purchased shorts or socks this year, the colour is not changing so these will still be fine in coming seasons.

Spread the word about the new kit and if you are interested in sponsoring a team contact the club by email (gardensuburbfc@macquariefootball.net.au) or message us on Facebook.
