Competitions & Games

Curtin Football Club is a community club affiliated with the university, we provide football (soccer) to residents of the local community. Players do not require any affiliation with Curtin University.

Although football in WA does not have formal geographical catchment areas we are close by for residents of Burswood, South Perth, Como, Manning, Salter Point, Karawara, Wilson, Bentley, East Vic Park, Victoria Park, Kewdale, Shelley, Riverton, Ferndale, Cannington, Beckenham and Willetton.

We participate in these FootballWest competitions:

Smarter than Smoking Junior Boys League 2017

Smarter than Smoking Junior Girls League 2017

One or more teams are entered in these age groups and divisions:

* girls may "play down" by 2 years in these teams, i.e. an U13 girl can play in an U11 mixed team.

Age groups are based on player age at 1st January.

For example, in 2017, players born in 2004 = Under 13's, 2005 = Under 12's, 2006 = Under 11's, 2007 = Under 10's, 2008 = Under 9's, 2009 = Under 8's and born in 2010/2011/2012 = Under 5-7's.

We do not formally trial players, but player assessments will be made during pre-season open training/try-outs in February to ensure players are placed in an ability appropriate team. This sometimes depends on enrolment numbers.

Parent Participation

How to help your child get the best football experience!

1. Be present at training and games when you can to lend support to your child, the coach and to help develop team spirit and identity

2. Help check the pitch before the start of the match to ensure that there are no dangerous, sharp or unsavoury items deposited there that could pose a risk to our children

3. Be part of the fruit/drink/shirt washing roster for your team

4. Join a sub committee at the club or take up a volunteer position

5. Participate in social events organised by the club (some after training burger nights are proposed for during the season)

6. Go online at footballwest.com.au and do the short online referee training course or read the MiniRoos guidelines on the website (all this from the comfort of your arm chair) so that you can learn more about the game our children play and love

7. Create a social/supportive environment within your team by "putting yourself out there" and introducing yourself to other parents. Learning the kid's names etc.

8. Learn how to set up the pitch (ask your coach/manager) and where our equipment is stored and help to set up fields for training and matches (many hands make like work)

9. Make yourself known to the coach/manager of your team if you have First Aid skills

10. Hop onto the Curtin University Football Club website regularly

11. Write a small profile or article regarding your team, sometime during the season, for distribution via our website. It could have a player/coach/parent profile and note some of the great stuff that happened in the match that week or aspects of skill or sportsmanship that the team is working on

12. We the committee, value your children in the club and need your support to make it all it can be.
