FootballSSG competitions are held at Pittwater Rat Park, North Narrabeen and Brookvale Oval, Brookvale FootballSSG are Manly Warringah summer soccer competitions run mid-week, on your choice of Tuesday or Thursday afternoons and evenings We created the FootballSSG to aid in the ongoing growth and development of the game of football, and in particular, to aid in the natural development of player’s technical skills The basics of FootballSSG and futsal are very similar. Most of the rules are similar including: the size of the field; the non-contact nature of play; and the length of the matches. The key and fundamental difference between FootballSSG and futsal is that we play on turf and use a turf ball (like you would use in your full-sized-field winter competition). This is because we want our players to improve their technical football skills, something we feel is best done using the ball and the surface they will experience in their regular winter competition. You might just want to have fun. You might want to improve or enhance your fitness. All of these are valid reasons to play FootballSSG, Manly Warringah summer soccer.

As expected, we are nearly full. You can check the latest availability information here which will tell you that (effective 10th August) we have spaces for very few teams indeed.

We have started the process of assembling the competitions (it takes a bit of time, so don’t worry if you haven’t heard from us yet) ... can’t wait for it to start ... #LovingSSG

If you know that your team qualified for the right to choose your playing colours by having at least 8 players registered before August 1st, grab a sneak peek at this season’s colour choices here ... we’ll be getting in touch with all qualifying teams (in the order that they qualified) starting from later this week.

 

 

NEWSFLASH ... Update on player registration status


As predicted, the coming Spring season is extraordinarily busy. You can check the latest availability information here

Time to start thinking about the Spring 2015 season


2015-bestvenuesWe’re gearing up for the Spring 2015 season of FootballSSG. This will be our 8th consecutive season and we’re expecting it to be bigger and better yet again.

We have increased access to Rat Park this year (so we probably won’t have to turn anyone away from that venue, as we did in 2014). And we, again, have access to Brookvale Oval.

We were 100% sold out at Rat Park last season, and very close to the same at Brookvale Oval. Our record of growth in player numbers year upon year suggests that we will be fully sold out this season.

So the message is simple ... get yourself and your team organised and registered early or risk missing out completely.

Registrations will be accepted from 1st July (with our normal early registration offer expiring on 31st July).

Can’t wait for it all to start again ...

We know you just want to play, so we only use the best quality fields with the best irrigation and drainage systems, so you get to play. After all, that is what you want, isn’t it? When you register to play, you just want to be able to play!
