U6 and U7 Football

U6 and U7 football is focused on fun-filled small sided (4 v 4) games on small pitches (20 m x 30 m). The aim is to introduce young children to football and to develop their skills in 3 key areas of the game:

  • Running with the ball
  • Striking the ball
  • 1 v 1

Each U6 or U7 team is made up of a squad of 12-13 players, with a parent coach and manager. For the games, the squad is evenly split (6-7 players each) and two games are played concurrently. This is to ensure that each player gets plenty of game time. More details on the playing format and rules for U6 and U7 football can be found at HERE.

Seaforth FC truly hopes you have a enjoyable, fun-filled and exciting 2019 Season.

If you would like your child to play with certain other children, children from the same school or a specific pre-formed team, please include this information during the registration process and email this information to the Age Coordinator. Please note that Age Coordinators will make every effort to accommodate any requests, but no guarantee is made.

For further information, please refer to the FFA Play Football information and FAQs or contact the relevant Age Coordinator.

Next Steps

Soon after the registration period has closed, the Age Coordinator will notify all registered players of their team. Once the teams have been released, it is the responsibility of each team to complete the following next steps:

  • Select a manager to organise the players, delegate duties and communicate with the Age Coordinator, as required.
  • Select a coach(es) to run training session and lead the team on game days. Suggestions for finding a coach is available at Information for Managers.
  • Contact the Training Ground Coordinator to select a suitable date and location for the teams weekly training session. This is typically one afternoon after school, but can also be on a weekend if that is more preferable. Detailed booking instructions, field layout and ground allocation is at Training Ground Bookings.
  • The manager and/or coach must attend the Information Session to learn about the season ahead and collect their teams gear (training balls, match ball, training bids, cones and player jerseys, shorts and socks).

For any questions or issues that arrive prior to and during the season, the team manager can contact the relevant Age Coordinator for assistance and support.
