Fun Football Player Information
Fun Football is for children aged 7 and 8 years. We also accept 6 year olds who have already played two years in the First Kicks or show above average ability.
Fun Football continues the New Zealand Football Whole of Football Framework and focuses on developing core physical skills and laying down the technical foundations for future football competency in a fun, motivational environment.
Children are placed in to teams of up to 10 players. The first half of each session is spent learning skills/drills, with the second half playing 4/5-a-side games in a round-robin format. At the end of each session there are Player of the Day presentations, and lollipops 🙂
Sessions are run from 9am to 10am on Saturday mornings, with initial sessions based at Foster Park (opposite the Selwyn Aquatic Centre) in Broadlands Drive, Rolleston. In the second and subsequent months this expands into a home & away Selwyn wide competition with teams based in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln, Rolleston & West Melton….if sufficient player numbers warrant it. This will involve some traveling, with approx 4-5 away games for each team during the season. More information on this will be provided after registration and team numbers confirmed.
Shinpads covered by long socks is compulsory. SUFC provides team T-shirts for each player. Players are encouraged to wear football boots for protection from injury and avoid slipping on wet grass.
The 2017 Winter season starts on Saturday 1st April. Registrations are now open – click here to register.
