The popularity of the sport continues to grow and, following the completion of another successful local season, players, coaches and referees will now have the opportunity to continue to play beyond the winter competitions.
SGFA general manager Craig Kiely said it was exciting that football could now be played over the summer months.
“Football is now clearly a year round sport and we are delighted to be able to offer an additional program that provides a fun and exciting environment for our kids to stay active over the warmer months,” he said.
SGFA is the local body for football in the St George district, the largest and most participated sport in the area, representing close to 10,000 players.
The program is officially endorsed by Football NSW and will be open to boys and girls from under-6s to under-16s, and to men and women competing in all age to over-35s. It will be held at Peakhurst Park and at SGFAs newest Synthetic venue Ador Avenue Reserve.
The SGFA is also taking expressions of interest for senior age walking football competitions.
SGFA are offering an early bird discount until September 7.
Team nominations are open until September 21 with the competition kicking off on October 2 and running until December 20.
SGFA is also providing a Club Rebate Scheme which will offer incentives for clubs to register as many teams as possible.
