You can submit a nomination to create your own team in any age group, this requires player numbers and a coach and manager submission. Forms are attached with instructions, this needs to be submitted to the relevant Football Manager.
Under 5s to Under 7s:
There is no grading for these age groups. Player’s can choose to play with friends or previous team mates if they wish. There was the opportunity to enter this in your registration- this information will be sent to your Football Manager. If you didn’t submit your preference in your registration please email your Football Manager so your child can be allocated into the team you’re hoping for. We will endeavour to keep past teams together if you wish.
NEW IN 2023 - GIRLS @ GOSFORD UNDER 7 COMPETITION
Our Central Coast Football competition is very committed to growing female football on the coast, and a part of that is increasing the availability of our all girls competitions- and Gosford City FC fully supports this and can't wait to see more girls playing football! We are excited that in 2023 we see the introduction of an all girls competition for our under 7, under 9 and under 11 age groups.
We want our girls to have the option of playing in mixed teams or in an all girls competition, and it is their choice which they'd like to play in.
If you're interested in having your daughter join one of our all girls teams please get in contact with the relevant Football Manager:

CLUB COMMUNICATIONS DURING THE SEASON:
Our club communications are sent out from 'Stack Team App', this is an app which is free for our club to use- which offers us many features and means our messages can get directly to you. We're asking that all parents of players and players please download this app to ensure that you are aware of what is happening this season.
We are also active on social media, both Facebook and Instagram, but these are more community based rather than internal club information so it is necessary to be on the 'Stack Team App' so you get everything relevant to you. We do hope to see you on our social media too though!
Below is a quick how to join us on Stack Team App, you can also add it on your phone via the App Store.
