Competition Age Groups

To all of our players and those wishing to join QCSA, we will not be following the lead of Football Australia in reducing the field size and number of players (known as Small Sided Games) in all of our junior age groups.

For the foreseeable future our Under 6, 7 and Under 8s will continue to play a modified brand of soccer with 6 players on each side, 1 of which will be a goalkeeper.

3 interchange players are allowed and there will be no limit on the number of goals allowed to be scored per player.

We will not be keeping any official match results and the focus will be on learning the game rather than winning or losing. All teams in Under 9s and 10’s will also play on a half sized field with 9 players on the field and 3 interchange players allowed.

Under 11 and above will play on a full-size field with a full complement of 11 players (including a goalkeeper) and up to 4 interchange players. Results will be recorded and a finals series played from under 9 and above.
