Playing football at Gosford City Football Club is a great way for your kids to stay fit, and learn key life skills in a safe, fun team environment, with guidance from qualified coaches.
The Dragons offer age groups across our Youth program from Under 12′s to Under 18′s, we want to see all youth playing- from those wanting to have fun with their friends, to those who dream of the big time!
Football on the coast offers both a mixed male/female Youth competition as well as a female only Girl's Youth competition.

GIRLS @ GOSFORD
We encourage girls to join our all girls teams, we are seeing huge benefits for our girls playing in the all girls competitions - but it is the individual players choice if they wish to play in the all girls competion or the mixed competition (boy & girls). We will support our players whatever they choose. Both options are available to you, but are accessed when registering the following ways:
- under 13 & 15 years registration will offer you just the mixed competition in your age group- register as that but add in the comments you want to be in the all girls competition and we will add you to it when we receive your registration from CCF.
- under 12, 14, 16 will receive both the girls and mixed options when registering
18 years: Girls turning 17 or 18 years option is to play in the all girls/womens competition only, this is the age where players are separated into either womens or mens competition. After turning 18 girls move into the All Age womens competition.
HOW WE CREATE TEAMS
All teams are placed in a grade of competition offered by Central Coast Football- from A - D grade.
- ALL PLAYERS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND GRADING DAYS TO ASSESS PLAYERS FOR THEIR BEST SUITED TEAM TO PLAY IN.
- GRADING WILL BE HELD MONDAYS IN FEBRUARY (DATES TO BE CONFIRMED)
A/B Grade competitive teams- these teams are created based on individual skill level, all players must attend grading days to be graded into these teams. Friend requests are not accepted for these teams.
C/D Grade social teams- players wishing to form their own team still attend grading to have their team graded to ensure they're playing in the correct level of competition for their teams overall skill level. For those wanting to play with friends and create their own team these can only be C/D teams, A/B are club graded only. These are the numbers of players that are required:
|Team Age Group
|Players on field
|Max players in team
|Under 12-18 years
We aim to have our teams created at the beginning of March, teams must be submitted to Central Coast Football for inclusion in the competition by March 10th. Registrations can be accepted after that date but only where we have an available spot in a team. We encourage those wanting to invite friends to play to do so early to ensure they don’t miss out.
PLEASE NOTE- FOR PLAYERS WANTING TO PLAY UP AN AGE GROUP:
All requests to play in a different age group than your child’s birth year age group need to be made to your relevant Football Manager. The club must assess each request individually to ensure player safety and fairness to all our teams. We will wherever possible accommodate requests. Players wanting to play up in a team in under 9’s and over must attend grading- for both their actual age group and the age group they want to play in.

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.
