TUESDAY SUMMER COMP GAMES POSTPONED

Hi all

Football NSW strongly recommends that all football activities that are due to take place on Tuesday, 12 November 2019 in affected areas are postponed or cancelled for the health and safety of all participants.  

Our club continues to monitor air quality levels and fire risks in our area and carefully consider whether football activities should proceed this week.  Please keep in mind that wind and fire directions can change quickly and while conditions may appear suitable earlier in the day, they can be quite different by the time games are due to start or when it ends and participants have to make their way home .

People from sensitive groups such as those with asthma, heart or lung disease, children and older adults should consider avoiding all outdoor activities for today.

We will reschedule all games from today to next week Wednesday 20th November at the same time and fields, meaning if the weather permits, Tuesday games scheduled next week will be followed by a Wednesday make up round.

Players and spectator safety is front of mind in coming to the conclusion to postpone today's matches. We will update the website and Facebook tomorrow regarding our ML try outs as well as regarding Thursday night Summer competition games. So please check our website and facebook regularly

Stay safe and hydrated, yours in football

Competition Information - 2019 Summer season

 

Eschol Park Football Club will be running its Summer Competition again this year. We have listened to feedback we received last year and have taken steps to improve our competition:

 

Competition Dates

The competition will run on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Due to council hiring block outs, the competition will commence 1st October and will run for 12 weeks (10 weeks + Semi Final and Grand Final Week). For 4 team competition we will play 12, with the winner first past the post the winner. (except AAM where we play 6 rounds and each place in the Group stage will then be playing against the same place from the other groups for the remaining 6 rounds) For 6 team competitions, we will play 10 rounds with the final two weeks being semis and finals.


Washouts

This year we have secured the fields from Council on Wednesday evening to play make up rounds ensuring that all teams can play the full competition.

 We have extended the hiring of our fields for an additional week for finals in case of weather inclement.

 

Active Kids Voucher

The NSW Government have extended the active kids voucher program entitling families to claim two vouchers for the one child per year.

 

For Juniors this could mean free registration.

 

Entertainment

This year we are introducing entertainment to our competition by providing a DJ to belt out some tunes. 

Our Club Sponsor Games 2 U will be attending throughout the season with its games truck for the kids.

 

We want to continue to promote our fun, friendly and family focused competition.

What is our goal

Eschol Park Football Club was officially formed in 1983 (as Eschol Park Soccer Club) and has been a proud member of the Macarthur Football Association since that time.   The club was setup to provide a safe place for the local children to go and play soccer.   This has been achieved and is proudly maintained by the ongoing committee, testament to our success is the number of past members who are now bringing their children back to play at the club.   Our club participates in the Macarthur Football Association winter competition, hosting players in all age group competitions from Under 6 to Over 35.   We also host our own summer competition with competitions for Under 6 Mixed, Under 7 Mixed, Under 8/9 Mixed, Under 10/11 Mixed, Under 12/13 Boys, Under 12/13 Girls, Under 14/15 Boys, Under 14/15 Girls, Under 16/17 Boys, Under 16/17 Girls, All Age Mens, All Age Ladies and All Age Mixed.   Why not give Football a go this year, come and join a great family club!
