Spring Season Starts 30 July 2018!
World Cup warriors welcome! Team chants optional. The five-a-side format is a fast paced and dynamic version of the game. The team size, low bounce ball and modified rules are tailored for smaller pitches like Flagstaff Gardens and Docklands venues. There are men's, mixed and open competitions available.
New to the game?
There's one aim of the game - to score a goal (or many)! Each team aims to get the ball inside their goal without using your hands. The goalkeeper is the only player that can use their hands, but only within the penalty area of the field.
Teams have five (5) players/team members on the field at once. Teams cannot take to the field with any less than four (4) players, one of which must be a Goalkeeper (with the others as on-the-field players).
Men's team must include five male players.
Teams can have any combination of female and male players.
Teams are required to have at least one (1) female on the court at all times.
Our game includes two 12 minute halves, with a two minute half time break.
Games will run at 11:30am, 12:00pm, 12:30pm, 1:00pm and 1:30pm. Weekly times will be available on the below fixtures once registrations are finalised.
