Boys and Mixed Teams

Beecroft FC Mixed and Boy teams play in the Gladesville Hornsby Football Association (GHFA) Competition.  We have teams for boys and girls who turn 9 – 18 in the current calendar year.

NOTE: There is a separate ‘girls only’ competition run by North West Sydney Women’s football (NWSWF) which Beecroft FC also enter teams.  Girls may choose to play in mixed and/or girls only teams.

Juniors are aged 9 to 11 years:

  • The game is played on half size fields and 9-a-side teams
  • Competition is introduced with teams playing 14 games for a ‘Premiership’ and then the top 4 teams play off for the ‘Championship’ (Grand Final winner). The bottom 4 teams play off for a Pennant.
  • Off side is also introduced and most games are supplied a qualified referee.
  • Kids will be introduced to positional play within teams. Kids enjoy this next level with the introduction of playing in a competition.

Youth play from ages 12 to 18 years:

  • The game is played on full sized fields and 11-a-side. The length of the game and ball size change progressively as the teams get older.
  • Competition typically consists of teams playing 14 games for a ‘Premiership’ and then the top 4 teams play off for the ‘Championship’ (Grand Final winner). The bottom 4 teams play off for a Pennant.

The season 

  • Teams are ranked or graded before the start of each season to ensure games are played between similarly skilled teams.
  • Games are played on Saturday mornings with unlimited interchange.
