GIRLS ONLY LEAGUE
Registrations for the 2023 winter season are open now.
Season starts 30 April.
Season ends 3 September.
No games in middle week of school holidays.
Junior girls have several options for playing football:
Girls-only league: open to players from age 7 up and teams play on a Sunday morning (information on this page).
Mixed football: girls play in teams with boys and girls (information here).
Mixed and Girls only: girls can select both mixed and girls-only meaning they play both Saturday and Sunday.
The Girls Only League is open to all girls of all abilities aged 7 to 14 (born 2015 to 2008). Games are played on Sunday mornings. The focus of the league is on fun and participation - meaning that the league is suitable for girls first learning football right through to those who have good skills and have played a while.

About the league
As noted above, the Girls Only League is open to all girls of all abilities aged 7 to 14 (born 2015 to 2008). Your child's 'grade' is based on their age - for example children who turn 9 in 2022 will be in grade 9.
The focus of the league is on fun and participation - meaning that the league is suitable for girls first learning football right through to those who have good skills and have played a while.
Teams play small-sided games on artificial turf (and so matches are rarely cancelled). Games are played on Sunday mornings.
The number of players allowed on the field at a time (including a goalkeeper) is as follows:
GOSL Grades 7-8: 5 players
GOSL Grades 9-10: 7 players
GOSL Grades 11-12: 9 players
GOSL Grades 13-14: 11 players
About team trainings
Players usually participate in a training after school once a week. Team trainings will be led by a parent coach from each team. Turn up to your team training and the weekly Sunday morning game. Play with your friends, meet new friends, and enjoy some fun football on the weekend.
