This means eleven players on the ground in designated positions on a full sized pitch. FIFA rules are in force including offside with the addition of rotating substitutions and mixed gender teams.
Dunsborough Fields teams in the competitions run by the Leeuwin Naturaliste Junior Soccer Association: Under 13 - Premier League and Champions League mixed competitions, Under 15 - Premier League and Champions League as well as the Premier Youth Competition in the South West: Youth League Boys and Youth League Girls. These leagues consist of a home and away season as well as a league cup.
Small Sided Games
In 2008, FFA in conjunction with Member Federations, Zones Associations and Clubs successfully introduced Small-Sided Games (SSG). This roll out was staged commencing primarily with the younger age groups moving through the ages in 2009 and now with full implementation.
SSG have been extremely well received and supported by Member Federations, Zones, Associations and Clubs. The feedback for the smaller fields and reduced playing numbers with an emphasis on player development has been very positive, Clubs and parents see the end result that buy touching the ball more the children will become better players and enjoy the experience much more.
Our coaches are our greatest asset. It is through their passion, patience and skill that the talent of our youth is fostered and developed.With an emphasis on quality training, Dunsborough Junior Soccer Club aims to provide a valuable sporting and social experience for all our players and develop talented players. One of the real trends taking place in world soccer now is a renewed focus on developing technical skills. The ability to run at a defender and beat him off the dribble will cause all kinds of chaos for the defense. Unfortunately, most youth soccer teams put misplaced focus on team tactics - 8 year olds don't need to learn tactics, they need to master the fundamentals of dribbling, passing and shooting.
