Glenhaven Football Club plays in the Hills Football Association and has teams for all ages and abilities from ages 5 to over 45’s. Boys and girls are eligible to play together in the same competitions in all groups (conditions apply to U16s and above). The age a child turns in the year of the competition is the age group in which they will play. All mini and junior games are played on Saturday mornings with seniors (U18 and over) playing the majority of games on Saturday afternoon with occassional games played on Sundays.
The Club’s colours are emerald green and red. A playing jersey will be supplied by the Club at the start of the each season and must be returned at the end of the season. One pair of shorts and one pair of socks are supplied to new under-age players (U6-U18) registering with the club for the first time. Additional gear is available for purchase. At all times when playing for Glenhaven F.C players are required to wear the correct club gear.
Mini Football – Under 6 and 7
Under 6 and 7 are not graded and play in Small Sided Games (SSG), which focuses on skills development, friendship, teamwork and enjoyment of the game. The mini teams play non-competitive games against other HFI Clubs playing 4 v 4, without goalkeepers.
Under 8 and 9
Under 8 and 9 play 7 v 7, including a goalkeeper, on a slightly larger field. Still non-competitive with no points allocated. We may begin grading players into similar skilled teams.
Under 10 and 11
Under 10’s and 11’s play 9 v 9, including a goalkeeper, non-competitive football on a 70 x 45 metre field. We will begin grading players into similar skilled teams in preparation for competitive competition in U12.
Junior Competitive – Under 12 to Under 17
All Junior teams will be graded according to skill level so that they can play in similar skill level competitions where all rules of football will apply and will be played on full sized fields.
Senior Competitive – Youth League (U18-U21), All Age, O35’s & O45’s
The Senior teams are normally organised by themselves where mates play together in similar skill level competitive divisions.
