Short one-day courses (9.00am-4.00pm) are conducted by Football Queensland within the Sunshine Coast area to help develop skill levels of players U6 to U17/18. Courses cost around $90.00 and are paid for by the Club. See ‘Club Contacts’ for an email address.

2019 AGE GROUPS
Allocation of points for ages 11 (eleven) and upwards are: Win 3, Draw 1, Loss 0. There are no points for U6’s to U10’s because they play non-competitive Roo Ball.
PLAYING UP OR DOWN AN AGE GROUP
A player cannot play up more than one age division without prior, written permission from the Association. Coaches and managers should be aware of the physical limitations of young players playing in a higher age division.
No male player may play down a division without prior, written permission from the Association.
This must be attached to the team sheet book. A player must be turning 10 (ten) or older to play in fixtures competitions. Girls are automatically allowed to play down one age division from their age group (see above list).
“A” division players may not play down in a “B” division game in the same age group, or cross play.
Players may play up an age (i.e. to assist a team with players out due to injury or sickness) and must play at least four fixtures, five maximum, in the same team to be eligible to play in the finals series for that team. However, a player may only play in a final series for one team i.e. cannot play in two sets of finals across two age groups.
However, players that play in a higher age division six times must remain in that higher age division team for the remainder of the season.
PLAYING FOR POSSESSION
The ideal outcome, in time, of all coaches and managers, is to have a competitive team with a level of play similar to that of any team within their respective roo-ball competition or their competitive A, B or C division team for U11 to U17/18. This is undertaken by the Team (parents and players) within the boundaries of the Club’s approach to soccer, please watch the video on the right for more information.
Football is a game of playing for possession of the ball and knowing how to get it back when possession is lost. This is the purpose for any sport whether it is water polo, basketball, netball, hockey or rugby. Possession of the ball creates a competitive team as players learn and improve their skills and teamwork when they have more time with the ball. What do we mean by playing for possession and why do the worlds best football teams and nations play Tiki Taka?
Watch this Tiki Taka style of play and especially listen to the commentary (first minute) about how Argentina play and then watch Thailand play great Tiki Taka.
Possession creates opportunities. The ball moves up-field through each player position by passing, and most player energy is expended with the ball. Tiki Taka is about maintaining possession to create those opportunities in play through teamwork and skills, seemingly from nothing. Everyone is involved.
Aside from the above options for improving skills, players with a good skill level (do not have to be in A Grade) can greatly improve by attending SCCSA Representative Trials (U10 & above) at the end of season during October. A try-out will convey the football practise and level of skill needed for representative selection. Obviously being selected will then lead to training with the representative team over the season and playing with that team at various representative tournaments.
