We’ve taken traditional soccer and given it an unconventional twist. Introducing our newest activity, Urban Caged Soccer.
Fast paced games, no out of bounds and you can play off the fence. There’s no goalkeepers, with all players live.
Urban Caged Soccer will be offered at the Flagstaff Gardens Sports Courts at lunchtimes. Get your team together and register today. Spaces are limited.
Teams can have any combination of female and male players.
Our game includes two 12 minute halves, with a two minute half time break.
Games will run at 12:00pm, 12:30pm, 1:00pm and 1:30pm. Weekly times will be available on the below fixtures once registrations are finalised.
Urban Caged Soccer differs from traditional soccer, with no out of bounds and no goalkeeper. The ball is always live!
Our season runs for 8 weeks, beginning the week commencing 28 August, plus finals. Once registrations are finalised, your weekly fixtures will be available under fixtures below.
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. Please note, all players are live as there are no goalkeepers (handballs will be penalised).
