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:
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.
All U6 and U7 teams play their games on Saturdays. A team can include girls and boys.
Check HERE to see the status of all age groups and confirm that we are still accepting registrations for this age group.
Seaforth FC truly hopes you have a enjoyable, fun-filled and exciting season.
For the 2022 Season:
Ideally kids play with kids their own age, but we do make exceptions. Please speak to the relevant Age Coordinator to get a decision from the club.
We try to group friends together as much as we can, but it can be a bit of a juggle so we might not be able to make every single request. If you would like your child to play with certain other children (e.g from the same school or a specific pre-formed team), please add this information during the registration process, and also email your Age Coordinator.
Awesome! Thank you for making our life easy. When registering your children, simply add the names of the team mates during the registration process. Please also mail the names of your players to your Age Coordinator. Remember, you’ll need a coach and a manager so the sooner you get these sorted, the better!
During the registration process you will be asked what school your child attends. At the time of team allocation your Age Coordinator will try to put children from the same school together.
These are the key steps to register:
You’ll receive a club jersey and socks free from the club. We give these out a week or two before the season starts. Your team manager will pick them up from the club.
You’ll need to buy black shorts (all black – no stripes or markings please) and shin pads – goalies will need goalie gloves too.
Click HERE to buy black shorts with our club logo on them from our club shop.
NEW! We’re introducing our Jersey Re-Use Program so you can have a $20 fee discount by using your last year’s club jersey if you want to.
For U6 and U7s, the first game of the 2023 season will be on Saturday 1st April. The last game of the season will be on Saturday 19th August.
Note that there are games on the first and last weekends of school holidays, but no game on the middle weekend.
During March, once the MWFA has put together the draw for your age group, you’ll receive an update your from your Age Coordinator via your team manager to let you know where and when you’ll be playing your first few matches.
The best ways to keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the club are:
There’s heaps of information on this website .. everything under “Match Day” will help get you to games.
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:
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.
