About the soccer program

On-pitch skills

Your child will be individually assessed and placed with players of a similar age and skill level. They will take part in drills, one-on-one simulations, small-sided games and common conditioning activities specific to soccer.

When the ref’s final whistle blows, kids will walk off pitch with:

  • improved crucial game skills including:
    • kicking
    • passing
    • dribbling
    • shooting (penalties and simulated game)
  • greater game awareness and strategy such as:
    • attacking and defending skills
    • formations
    • one-on-one play
    • side-throws
    • corner kicks
    • heading
    • blocking
    • shooting.

Off-pitch fun

We'll break up the day and have some fun in the Footscray Park Aquatic & Fitness Centre pool. Your kids can play on the inflatable obstacle course and take part in water-based activities.

Trained lifeguards will be on duty at all times.

Life vests are available for kids who want to participate but don't feel confident in the water.

Please note: only children who can swim will be allowed on the inflatable.
