Season 2021 Dates

Season 2021 is likely to see first games played on the weekend of April 10th (middle week of school holidays) The season will end on the last weekend in August with hopefully a gala day for under 6-U11 players and finals series for all other age groups.

 

As we are not allowed large gathering or presentation events and there is no Gala day this year, Trophies will be made available to managers of all players in U6 to U16 teams for presentation on the last game.

Sponsors Needed

A well run sporting club does not come cheaply. Membership fees cover the basic cost of football but there are so many extra costs involved and these can make or break a club. With the cost of football rising many families find the cost of participation is stretching the family budget.

With many parents and players working long hours we are no longer able to rely on volunteers covering all duties and the need to pay for some duties to be completed is increasing.

 We want to offer our members a safe and enjoyable football experience at an affordable cost and this is where our sponsors support comes into play. As a club, field improvement, player health and safety, equipment, player development , coach and manager support are all areas we see as valuable and vital to the success of our club.  Our sponsors are essentially the lifeblood of the club as their support enables us to provide and enhance on the valuable services listed above.

Development trails U7-U16 2021 in November

Season 2021

Development trials will occur in November 2020 for Under 7 to Under 16 players. We will select most players for 2021 in November this year. 

That means that once we have selected our Development players,  we are looking at how we group players in all other miniroos teams more towards friendship groups or like skilled players based on player numbers.
Yes Under 7 has a development team and if you are interested in being involved. So if you played in the Under 6’s this year and feel you are a little superstar then….

SAP Trial - To reduce games with un-even results.

We are trying to be more progressive as an association to make sure games are even. This is a new change that will be trialed in SAP only in the coming weeks. – Any thoughts or feedback – happy to take email

Proposed Power Play Rule (to apply to all SAPL age groups U8/U9/U10/U11):
At any time during the match, whenever there is a goal difference of 5 or more goals, the coach of the team losing by 5 or more goals can choose to add one extra player onto the field. If the goal difference drops below 5 then the extra player must be removed from the field.

The Power Play is a concept used by the English FA in the younger age groups for developmental purposes.

In short if one team is dominating another by a certain number of goals, the team being dominated can add an extra player onto the field ie 7v7 becomes 8v7.
This is only a trial for U8-U11 SAP teams – just trying to keep you informed
