Team building fun
Douglas United Football Club
IF you are seeking an active sport with a family friendly environment, team building skills and ball skills, then Douglas United Football Club may be the club for you.
Douglas United Football Club offers a range of different levels for junior players, aimed at providing a progressive path to excel in the game from three years of age.
The most basic entry level is the "Squirts" and is aimed at 3-4 year olds. Squirts provides a fun play and learn environment with one hour per week of activities that are designed to help assist with concentration, coordination and balance.
‘‘MiniRoos’’ is aimed at 5-11 year olds and introduces the sport with age appropriate football rules for this age group of boys and girls.
It aims to be non- contact and noncompetitive with progressively sized fields and competition rules as the child matures with the game.
Training sessions for juniors take place Thursday afternoons from 5-6pm, with Saturday games for match practice.
But this exciting game is not just for the little ones. Douglas United also prides itself on its senior teams, with our Premier team winning the Grand Final in 2012, runners-up in 2013, and winners of the inaugural FNQ Cup in 2013. Our Premier Reserve team was also very successful, making it to the Preliminary Finals in 2013. 2014 sees the seniors fielding Premier and Premier Reserve teams once again.
The club is also looking to create a local social competition for youth aged 12-15 years, with a view to these players eventually progressing to the senior ranks at Douglas United.
The club’s Junior Sign-on will take place on February 20th, from 5pm at the club grounds. Any new players interested in joining the senior ranks are asked to contact Logan Marsh on 0404 328816. Come along and make the Dragons your team in 2014!!
