THE CLUB

Redbacks Football Club is a family friendly club that is large enough to offer you and your child the full soccer experience while still small enough for you to know everyone’s name. Redbacks has been going for 55 years.

Redbacks FC is part of the Gladesville Hornsby Football Association (GHFA) which extends from Ryde to Kenthurst and play mostly on Saturday. Girls’ and women’s teams play in the North West Sydney Women’s Soccer Association which covers a similar area to GHFA. Teams in this competition play on a Sunday.

Information about games

Mini teams play between 8:30am and noon on Saturdays.
Junior teams play between 8:30 and 1:30 pm on Saturdays.
Senior teams usually play on Saturday afternoons and some Sunday games.
The Women’s and Girls competition is played on Sundays.

With the popularity of soccer and the limited grounds available, the Association
unfortunately must schedule matches on Saturdays in the school holidays for all competitive teams. Last year minis were given the middle week of the holidays off since they are not competitive. If you are going away it is important to notify your team manager as soon as possible so they can make appropriate arrangements.

If it is raining or has rained, you must go to the ground unless your team manager calls you to tell you that the game has been called off.
The game is not cancelled unless the grounds are sodden and closed for safety reasons.

Volunteers Needed!

Every team requires a coach and a manager. Teams are responsible for filling these positions and advising the registrar. Parents usually fill these roles in the Mini and Junior divisions). Considerable training and support is on offer for all coaches to fill this extremely rewarding role. Managers are also provided with easy-to-use instruction manuals and excellent support from Co-ordinators, so you have nothing to fear when stepping up to play your part in yours and your child's football team.

If your team is drawn to play the first or last game on View Street then you will be expected to help set up or undress the grounds.
This is true for Sunday games as well. Your manager will be informed of your obligations in this area.

Our View Street canteen is now run by the Opera Kitchen and as such, there is no longer a requirement for volunteers to assist in running our canteen.
