There are many players that are playing U18s that wouldn't make any of the U16A JPL1 sides.

Re: U18s JSL competition

Also needs to be remembered, playing football or any sport for that matter is a social activity. 16-20 yr olds do not want to play with 30+ yr olds.

Re: U18s JSL competition

Re: U18s JSL competition

We need to give players the opportunity to stay at their club for as long as possible. Most don't want to play amateurs at 16-18yrs, playing against 30yr plus players. Players actually want to stay and play for their club for as long as possible. It's usually delusional parents that want their kids...

Re: U18s JSL competition

Correct. Sturt run amateur teams. But many of these young players are not ready and just need a couple years to mature and then take the next step to amateurs. That provides a improved pathway for these players to facilitate keeping them in the game. At 17/18, they're not ready to play in the lower...

Re: $1400 junior fees for 2019

Club football and paying $1,400 is not essential. Play for the school, play for a cheaper club. No one is forced to pay $1,400 for football.

My son plays club and school. One we pay for, the other is free.[/quote]

There are no cheaper clubs in the Central or Eastern area.
