Welcome to the new football season! We had a fantastic afternoon celebrating Australia Day at AIS and hosting our annual registration day for the Singapore Sharks Football Club (SSFC). 

The strong interest in the Sharks continued with over 250 individual registrations.  Great to see old faces return and a warm welcome to the new families joining our community. We have managed to attract children from over 20 schools and kindergartens across Singapore.  Registration remains open for more families and friends to join us over the coming weeks.

We kick off the new season this Saturday, 8th February.  The day starts with the Year 2 and 3's at 2pm, and runs through to 7pm for the Dad’s training, no doubt the Dads will deserve a hard earned drink afterwards.

Training times are as follows:

  • Pre-school: 4 - 4.45pm in School Gym
  • Prep: 3 - 4pm in School Gym
  • Year 1: 3 – 4pm on Main Oval
  • Year 2 & 3: 2 – 3pm on Main Oval
  • Year 4 & 5: 4 -5pm on Main Oval
  • Year 6+: 5 - 6pm on Main Oval
  • Dads: 6 – 7pm on Main Oval

During each training day, the barbeque will be firing to ensure that the kids can get a sausage and a cold drink.  To make this work, we encourage volunteers to help with the barbeque and we are always happy to see parents helping to coach. The kids are encouraged to bring a water bottle which can sit at the drinks station, in the shade while the kids train. Please be reminded that all kids should apply sunscreen before training. For the older years, especially during games, we strongly recommend wearing a mouthguard.

Due to popular demand, we are going to arrange for a "footy boot swap".  The principle is easy, if your kids have outgrown their boots, please donate them to the club and the pick up another pair (based on availability).
