Child needs soccer

    Hi all

     

    We are coming over to validate our visas on 4th March. Our 8 year old son dropped a bombshell the over day saying he really didnt want to move to Australia cause he'll miss his friends & football team too much. I told him i will take him training with a team when we come over and he seemed to perk up a bit. So what im really after is a soccer team that would welcome an 8 year old to come and train with them Whilst we are over (very good player who has just been offered a contract with a professional club who i cant name)

     

    Cheers & any help will be much appreciated

     

    Mark

    Depends on where you are staying - there are great teams all over Adelaide: because of the high numbers of Poms, Italians, Greeks and Croatians here, it is a very popular sport. The junior season starts in about February/March so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding a friendly team.

    there are soccer clubs all over and to be honest they seem to be run very professionally.

    Many have great facilities and club houses with qualified coaches.

    That sounds good. I was worried that all teams have trials and then select their squads and wont let anyone else come training with them after the squads have been selected, But im sure a one off wont be a problem

    Contract for an 8year old? I assume you have your terminology wrong or you can't name the club as they are breaking all the rules.....

     

    Anyhow, if he is really that talented, you would want him to be at a Federation Club, as they have pathways etc...it will be SSF at that age, if you wnat more info let me know.

     

    Cheers

    I know they are. I didn't state othwerwise did I?

     

    They also have teams in the JPL, which is higher ranked that the JSL.

     

    The JSL is the secound tier of FFSA, and the JPL is the top tier.

     

    At 8 it's SSF, so all about development not winning.

    Yes over here all the clubs have scouting network & start working with kids as young as 5/6. Once they get to under 9 season they select an elite squad who sign and become contracted to that club, they play in a leauge for that club and train twice a week with them. Its very supprising but there are some outstanding players even at that age. Thanks for all youre replys & i will be in touch when we arrive.Cheers Mark
