Which team will my child play in?
Your child will be placed into a team that best suits the information provided in your registration. We will endeavour to keep as many players with their previous years teams as possible and hope to accommodate any special requests where we can. For your childs soccer development and enjoyment it is recommended they play in the level that best suits their skill level (see below)
Little Lizards – Under 6 Grass Roots program
Our U6's grassroots program has been developed to provide an experience in a fun and safe environment for boys & girls under the age of 6 (must have started Prep) to participate in football and to give them a lifelong love for the game.
From the U8 age group teams are graded into 3 levels based on playing ability:
Is there Offside?
Only from Under 12's and up
Is there a ladder/table and points for winning games?
Only from Under 12's and up
Will my child get fair game time?
Yes, the club promotes fair game time for all regardless of ability this coupled with Junior Soccer in Victoria having unlimited substitutions (like the AFL) allows coaches to roate the team around.
My child has never played soccer before.
No problem that's what Joeys is all about, it's a great place to begin a soccer journey. Under 13 and up we have teams in various different grades A to F based on ability.
When will team training start?
Once teams have been confirmed, your volunteer coach or team manager will communicate directly with you when confirmed however we would expect all teams to be training by mid/end March. The season is to set to start in April and will finish in September. The Mount Eliza Cup takes place post season.
When is Training?
Training days and times will depend on your team’s coach’s availability. Times and locations will be published on this site and Team Managers will advise parents.
Will there be Pre-season Training Clinics?
In preparation for the new season, the club will be running a 4-week 5v5 training program from February (dates TBC), this is ideal for those players wanting to get a head start on the season before general team training commences from March.
Are the coaches professional?
Like most community sport in most cases the coaches come from the team’s parent group and are not professional. The club along with Football Victoria have programs and initiatives to support coaches.
