Get ready for the next cracking Spring season of FootballSSG
It’s time to get your team organised and ready to register for the next cracking season of FootballSSG.
General registrations opened on June 24 ... register via this link ... you’ll need to have your full team registered before 15 July to receive the Early Bird discount and the opportunity to pick your playing colours (once we’ve done gradings, teams registered before 15 July will be given the opportunity to pick their colours in the order that their registrations were received - based on the date/time their 8th player was registered).
2022 marks our 15th Anniversary of Sydney’s favourite small sided football competitions and we’re really looking forward to a cracking season, unaffected by the challenges of the past few years. We hope you are too!
We’re organising competitions that run from mid-September through to early-to-mid-December (the end date will be determined by the weather - we’ll have several weeks up our sleeve to reschedule any games that are called off due to heavy rain or thunderstorms).
We’re organising heaps of competitions ... see all the details of the various age group offered.
We’ll broadcast via social media as soon as we’ve turned the general registration system on ... so follow us on Twitter (the best option) and/or Facebook so that you know the moment it happens.
6 April 2022 - Are you interested in refereeing?
Referees are an important part of every game of football. We’ve been nurturing and developing *great* referees since our competitions started fifteen years ago and we’re on the lookout for more.
Experience is not necessary as our referees are coached and mentored in the role. What is necessary is: - great communication skills (when communicating with us and when communicating with the players) - punctuality and reliability (when you agree to be at the field to referee a set of games, you must be there on time) - enthusiastic attention to detail - preparedness to listen and hear feedback on how you’re progressing and to develop to become a *great* referee - and embracing a philosophy of fun (yes - we want our referees to have as much fun as the players have)
If you are 14 years or older effective 1st July and are interested, please email us with the following information and we’ll be in touch: - your name, date of birth and the name of the suburb where you live - your parent’s name and email address (if you are under 18 years of age) - one paragraph telling us why you want to be a FootballSSG referee
We’re not only seeking junior referees, we’re definitely also on the lookout for referees to oversee adult players’ games. The list of required attributes is the same.
Sub Junior Coaching Handbook
Developed over many years and used by many coaches of sub junior and/or inexperienced players of any age who have a “weaker foot” or who are looking to improve their spacial awareness.
I’ve personally used many of the drills with ages including Under 6, Under 7, Under 8, Under 9, Under 10, Under 12, Under 13, Under 14, Under 15, Under 16, Open Age Men and Over 35 Men and Women with great success.
We’ve started getting ready for the Spring 2022 season
We’re really excited for the upcoming Spring 2022 season (our 15th Anniversary season) ... we hope you are too.
Plans are already in motion and we’re looking forward to once again bringing you the Northern Beaches’ best and most fun 6-a-side football competition.

Playing 5-a-side or 6-a-side soccer football is a brilliant way to keep fit and have fun. Importantly for those who wish to improve their playing ability, it helps to improve technical skills such as ball control, short passing and dribbling. And it helps to improve tactical skills such as using space, passing and moving and playing a through ball.

We have NEVER missed a game due to wet weather
This is a claim that we can no longer make. After twelve years and almost 20,000 games scheduled, in our Spring 2019 season we were unable to re-schedule and play 49 games that we chose not to play on the day that Sydney was placed under a State Of Emergency due to extreme heat and bushfire activity/threat. In the weeks that followed that day we were affected by rain and so lost those 49 games.
We really were not happy about it, but the fact is that now we can only claim that over twelve years and 20,000 scheduled games we have only missed 0.25% of games due to extreme weather events.
We still 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!
STILL Sydney’s favourite small-sided football competition
- 760 players in 2008 (our first year) - - Over 2,500 players in 2013 - - 4,500 players in 2017 - That’s 35% growth, year on year!
Be a part of the best organised and best fun small sided football competition in Sydney. We’ve got something for everyone:
- Boys, Girls, Men’s & Ladies’ competitions - - All age groups from Under 6 to Over 35 -
