  1. Does your program cater for off-season training?

Our football philosophy is to play as much football throughout the year as possible.  The Club offers off-season programs (at additional costs) for players to opt-in and continue training and play futsal after the season has ended.  The games are held at Springers in Keysborough and are either on Friday nights or Sunday mornings.  This is not compulsory but offers a different element/environment/aspect to their football development and also enjoyment. Older age groups will be able to choose between Futsal or the Youth Super Cup. The approximate cost of the off season program is around $250 Per player.
