We have a range of junior teams, from 6 years old all the way through to 18 years old, both boys and girls.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who are the Coaches?
All of our junior coaches are volunteers and are given opportunities to attend courses to improve their skills and training techniques as well as getting information & mentoring from the clubs junior coordinator. Our club prides itself on it’s inclusive nature and maintaining the ‘fun’ factor which is so important for every one of our players. Our coaches are the key element in passing on our commitment to both players and parents.
When do we play?
All games are played on a Sunday morning. The season starts in early April and finishes in early September. Games are usually played on a home and away basis with all of our home games played at Charles Riley Reserve. These fixtures are usually not available from Football West until very close to the start of the season – often because Clubs are still advising them of the final team numbers they have. The fixtures also try to take into account Easter and the school holidays; however, it’s not always possible to do so.
When do we train?
Training for MiniRoos (Teams 8 – 11s) is usually held once a week (the older teams may train twice a week) at Charles Riley. Training days will be Tuesday to Friday afternoon/evenings – the day and time will be determined by the coach/manager and grounds coordinator. Most teams will start training in early March so wait for the call.
How Much Will It Cost?
Our fees for 2017 are:
|Team Age Group ( 6s,7s Hub)||6 – 7yrs||$310.00|
|Team Age Group ( Miniroos Teams )||8 – 11yrs||$310.00|
|Team Age Group ( League )||12 – 16yrs||$310.00|
|Youth Teams ( Boys and Girls )||17 – 18yrs||$330.00|
Nearly half of the fee is paid to Football West and the rest is used to pay for a whole range of outlays. Each player will receive their own soccer kit (shirt, shorts and socks) as part of this fee. Each player is responsible for buying their own shin pads and boots.
Which size do I need to order?
NBSC Junior Development Program is in line with the FFA National Curriculum. Our Junior Development Program focuses on players between 5 & 18 years of age. We have a ‘Coach the Coach’ approach, where the focus is on:
- player development
- how to conduct training
- match day preparation
- managing players
- ensuring every player plays to their full potential whilst having fun.
There is a logical progression of training from year to year making sure it is age appropriate. Players will be taught how to play the game in a proper and fun way in a team-oriented setting. Through this program, players are also given the freedom to express themselves and be creative The main foundation being the love of the game which is the roots of this program whilst learning life skills such as teamwork, respect and discipline.
