    Looking to get my son into a soccer team within the southern sub's.

     

    He was playing U13 in the Kent Youth League back in the UK and also played at district level within West Kent.

     

    Can anyone make any recommendations as to where to look ?

     

    He is also plays cricket and could probably turn his hand (and feet) to AFL

    hi, in the southern area i would probably be lookin at noarlunga united, south adelaide panthers, seaford rangers and hallett cove, i know noarlunga and south adelaide have good youth setups from about 6yr olds onwards, dont know much about seaford and hallett cove, but im sure they have junior teams

    also watch out cos apparently the fees for a season here are very expensive compared to uk, probably lookin at a few hundred dollars

    When we checked, it appeared to be about the same as we used to pay but it was for the whole year up front.

    If he's particularly good, it might be worth looking at one of the 'higher echelon' teams such as Adelaide City, the Cobras, or Cumberland United - although you'll find the fees are pretty high (think around the $800 mark) Most of those will have already held trials though for the coming season, but you could give them a call and see what the chances are. Here's a link to the clubs in that league: http://www.acfcjuniors.com.au/downloads/2010%20Junior%20Premier%20League%20Directory.pdf

    Noarlunga for Jack is $350 for the season. They said they would do a payment scheme if you asked. However, I volunteered to help out in my spare time with any work needed and they told me what they wanted doing and now I'm the groundsman on the pay roll. So they give me more money than I give them. :biglaugh:

     

    GO THE BULLDOGS!!! :jiggy:

    You could also try a PM to Boxertony on here - ask his advice. I know his son is a pretty good footballer in the Adelaide United Reserves or something (although not in the south) so he may be able to suggest what would suit your son best.

    Hi - I understand SEAFORD Rangers have a reasonable set up...try this site

     

    Seaford Sports & Social Club: Club History

     

    as for AFL - Aldinga Sharks, Willunga or even McLaren Districts all have junior set ups...training probably commences late Jan or Feb and season starts end of March

     

    cheers

    I was referring to Noarlunga United at Wilfred Taylor Reserve, Morphett Vale

    Fees vary, all decent clubs charge $500. It's not too much considering what you get.

     

    BTW I am President of one of the clubs......

     

    If anyone wants advice about any team, PM me, some teams are a rip off, but I am not going to say which ones and why in public.
