Our vision for Belrose Terrey-Hills Soccer Club is to be recognised by players, coaches and families to be the most progressive, forward thinking, ambitious soccer club on the Northern Beaches. We have a strong network of players and supporters and continue to grow each year.
Teams from U6-U11 play modified versions of the football known as Small Sided Games (SSG). These games are designed to suit the functional abilities of the players in these age groups and to give each player more touches of the ball. The games are classified as non-competitive and results are not published. This is to encourage team official and parent to promote player development, fair play and FUN before winning games.
For U12s onwards, all teams play competitive games. Results are recorded and the teams are ranked on competition ladder/table. Unlike most professional sport in Australia the team that finishes the season top of the ladder in MWFA competitions is declared the Competition Winner. The top 4 teams then go on to play in a supplementary knock out competition. This can either take the form of a round robin or semi-final & final.
Team size is probably the hardest part of allocation for teams. BTH endeavour to have enough players to cover absences etc and not too many players so to make sure each player has adequate playing time. The other key factor influencing team size is the number of players registered in each age group.
U12-16 boys and girls play a game of 11 vs 11 on a full football field, so have between 13-16 players per team.
U18+ men and women play a game of 11 vs 11 on a full football field, so have between 13-30+ players per team/squad (firsts & reserves).
