Why join ANZA Soccer in Singapore?

And just like that the soccer season is well underway! “ANZA Soccer kicked off its 2018-2019 season welcoming 800 kids – past players and new recruits alike – to our Saturday league and Sunday competition teams,” says Anita Neville. “The season is lining up to be one of the best ever,” enthuses Neville. “So if you, or your kids, are sitting on the couch about what sport to play it’s never too late to sign up and join one of Singapore’s largest, and friendliest, soccer clubs.”

Here are just some of the exciting developments at ANZA Soccer…

More Matildas than ever before
ANZA Soccer has been investing in girls’ football over the past few years. “This year we are delighted to see so many girls joining the sport and our club,” says Neville. “For the first time we have a dedicated U14s Matildas team, along with a dedicated Matilda’s coach.”

ANZA hosts SEA Cup in 2019
“The SEA Cup is a prestigious regional soccer tournament for junior youth in South-East Asia,” says Neville. “Originally founded in 1988, the SEA Cup is contested between four youth soccer leagues in the region: ANZA Soccer (Singapore), Kuala Lumpur Youth Soccer (Malaysia), Bangkok Soccer League (Thailand) and a local guest team. The competition takes place over a weekend sometime between February and April. If you are interested in volunteering at the event, get in touch with the ANZA office.”

Looking for Little Lions
There is plenty of room for little kickers at ANZA Soccer. “The U4 boys and girls programme involves fun games and activities designed to develop children’s confidence, motor skills and love for soccer,” says Neville. “We focus on positive encouragement and inclusion. The programme involves 30 one hour sessions on Saturday mornings.”

Saturday League Club
After a very closely fought 2017-2018 season expect another competitive Saturday League. “Players across the age divisions not only learn skills and fair play, they compete to take home the league trophy for their age group,” says Neville. “Towards the end of the season the ANZA Cup games kick off.” Saturday games are coached by volunteer parent coaches. Older age groups games are professionally refereed. “Players also receive 15 professional training sessions on Thursday evenings throughout the season,” says Neville. “The end of year finals are a family highlight.”

Sunday and Regional Competitions
“We have high hopes for the ANZA Soccer competition teams this year,” says Neville. “The teams represent ANZA Soccer in external leagues, playing every second Sunday. Through the year ANZA also sends representative teams to competitions across the region, for both boys and girls.” ANZA Soccer provides the perfect entry to the world’s most popular game. “We offer coaching programmes (for parent coaches, as well as players) and fun, fierce yet friendly competition. We aim to teach young players the skills of the game, and how to be a great team player based on the values of Fair Play.”
