The Onside League is an internal competition played monthly from September to July each year.  In late August, prior to the season commencing, all of our players are allocated to an Onside team, either Sharks, Tigers, Dragons, Lions, Panthers or Eagles, each with a manager, assistant manager, playing kit and local sponsor.  Matches then commence in September and October.

We have two divisions (the junior division for school years 3 - 6 and senior division, for school years 6 - 9) and players are allocated as evenly as possible to ensure that the teams are all reasonably equal.  One Sunday per month the teams play against one another in 15 minute matches, with points awarded for wins, draws, clean sheets, goals scored and sporting behaviour.  At the end of the season the points are totted up and the winning team in each division presented with the Onside Cup.




If your child would like to play in Sunday sessions they need to register with us, which can be done by clicking on one of the following links:

- Junior Registration Form (School Years 3 - 6)

- Senior Registration Form (School Years 7 - 9)


Once registered, each child will be allocated to a training group and a league team.  Training groups are determined by age and ability and your child will work with the same training group each week.  Each training group is allocated to a pitch, which is their pitch for the duration of the season.  Training sessions are held three times a month and are designed to ensure that players train with their peers.   Match Days are held once a month and we ask that all registered players make every effort to attend on those specific days.  We have a junior league and a senior league, with each junior team made up of players across all of the junior age brackets and senior teams made up of players across the senior age brackets.  All children must be pre-registered to participate in Onside training sessions and match days.  Unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate players turning up on a speculative basis


To manage numbers and to ensure a high standard of coaching we will be limiting registrations for Season 24/25.  The allocation per age group is 60 spaces for junior players and 40 spaces for senior players.  Once we have reached the quota per age group you will only be able to join a waiting list and we will inform you when a space becomes available.  Over the season if players are missing training and match days on a regular basis we will ask them to relinquish their place to allow someone on the waiting list to participate.

All children, as well as parents/guardians, attending Onside sessions are expected to adhere to our Code of Conduct.  When registering your child you will be asked to confirm you have read and agree to abide by the Code of Conduct and Terms & Conditions which are attached below.

The Onside League prides itself on being a programme for local children, supported by the local community.  Each team is sponsored by a local company and the league is designed to introduce children to playing competitive football, but in a controlled and supportive environment.  All of our managers and players adhere to a strict code of conduct and our objective is always the best interests of each player and their development, both on and off the pitch.

Participation in the league is free of charge.  Onside Soccer and our sponsors want local children to be able to play football and believe that financial constraints shouldn't  preclude them from taking part.

Team Sponsors 24/25

To allow us to run the league this year we would like to say a huge thank you to our team sponsors for their support, which allowed us to buy portable goalposts, footballs and all of the other equipment required to function.  It is only through their commitment to the project and local sport, as well as that of our coaches who all volunteer their time, that we are able to run the league without charge. 

It is great businesses and volunteers like these who make our community what it is.  A huge thank you also to the individuals who decided to support the project as well.
