Soccer – Girls Programme

Girls-Only Programme

The 2017-18 ANZA season will offer girls different options based on their skill levels and soccer experience. ANZA is very excited that its girls programme has developed to include so many girls who are at so many different places in their soccer careers. We are pleased to offer a programme that will help all players develop their skills, knowledge, teamwork, and confidence.

Matildas teams

ANZA has a girls-only team known as the Matildas in each age group from U6 to U12. Matildas teams compete in the ANZA Saturday league against mixed teams. Matildas players use a different age-cutoff to help keep these girls-only teams competitive against the other mixed teams in the age group.

Age groups

The Matildas teams play one or two years down according to age. This follows generally accepted soccer practice to allow an even playing field against boys teams.

Girls are placed on these teams according to age as at 1st September 2017.

Girls age as at 1st Sep Mixed Teams Age Group
7 U7
8 U8
9 U9
10 U10
11 U11
12 & 13 U12

Girls younger than 7 will be placed in mixed teams. Every effort is made to put at least two girls together in any mixed team.

Girls older than 7 may opt to play on mixed teams at registration instead of joining the girls programme. We recommend, however, that girls do join the girls programme, as this will provide them with the best opportunities for developing as players and enjoying the game with their peers.

Thursday Training Sessions.

Any girl registered with ANZA Soccer may attend the girls-only training on Thursdays throughout the season. These practice sessions ensure that girls have an opportunity to play together and develop their skills and camaraderie.

Girls ages 7 to 9 train from 5 to 6 pm on Thursdays. Girls ages 10 to 16 train from 5:30 to 7 pm on Thursdays

Girls-only Sunday league.

Any player can elect at registration to participate in an external girls-only league, competing every second Sunday against other girls teams across Singapore. If enough players in the appropriate age group sign up, a team will entered in this league. There is an addition fee for participation to be advised.
