Default soccer in perth / melbourne

I would like your views please on the opportunities for young kids and over 40's football teams. Are there also regular soccer coaching courses for kids and if not would there be a market there as a small p/t business ? Before someone complains, I will also be involved in ausie activities.

Safety Bay (Rockingham ) has a Soccer Academy within its School and does
all of the above (not over 40s thou) just google - SAFETY BAY SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL Soccer Schools of Excellence
I know this may not be your target age but there is plenty of information
about this program (and maybe more junior levels)

Stop calling it "soccer." It is: FOOTBALL. Association Football if you want to be technical. :-)

Both my sons play soccer (football) in Perth the 15 year old plays for ecu joondalup and the 8 year old plays for westside which is in Kinross, there are loads of clubs if you check www.footballwest.com.au it will show you all the teams in all the areas. Ocean reef high school also does elite soccer which our 15 year old is in, he is off to singapore in November on an international football tournament.

hope this helps

Talking Re: soccer in perth / melbourne

If I can get a reality show on the telly with 22 kangaroos playing football, I'd be a millionaire.

The funny thing is that there is a kangaroo reservation in Georgia, USA.
