Junior’s

Port Darwin  Juniors are a family oriented club dedicated to providing opportunities for kids to learn soccer, be active and have fun in a safe and inspiring environment.

 If you would like to meet new people and be part of an energetic and social community then PDFC is the club for you.

Port Darwin Football Club has been built on the back of our dedicated volunteers who
volunteer their skills and time. When you volunteer for Port Darwin you become an integral part of the club. Your involvement has a direct positive impact on kids involvement in sport and contributes to their health and happiness. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that?!  Port Darwin has many members who started volunteering when their kids were in U6’s and are still volunteering and their kids are in U16s.  Volunteering not only enables our club to function, it also is the reason Port Darwin FC has such a strong community. Any assistance you can offer in the following roles would be much appreciated:

· Coach

· Umpire

· Team Manager

· Club duty assistance

· Line marking

· First aid

· Serving at fundraising barbecues

Port Darwin Football Club has junior teams to accommodate players from under 6 to under 18. Miniroos, U6-U11, uses short game based activities to introduce football to younger children. The game teaches skills and encourages children to be active and enjoy the social side of playing a team sport.

Port Darwin also offers junior teams from the under 12 to under 18 age groups.

When online registrations open in late March notification will be posted to the Port Darwin FC website and also to the Facebook page @PortDarwinFootballClubJuniors.

Here are the details you will need to kick off the year.

The number of teams we nominate in a season is determined by how many coaches we have.  Although we try to accommodate all those who register, we cannot guarantee places on teams.  In the event a position is not available a full refund of the registration fee will be given.

It is strongly advised that all players attend Tuesday’s training session and must be wearing appropriate attire including – soccer boots, shin pads, hat and have a bottle of water.
