FFV & VCFA
Monbulk Rangers Soccer Club plays their competitive football in two associations, the VCFA and the FFV. The club is well represented in both with Senior and Junior Men , Women, Boys and Girls.
The VCFA Juniors are a mainly a mixed competition, with both boys and girls playing in the U8-U17 teams. Only the recently set up VCFA U10 Girls competition are single gender matches
Both VCFA and FFV Seniors and the FFV Juniors play in a single gender competition.
Our FFV Senior men currently play in State League 3 and our Senior Women in State League 1
Our VCFA Seniors play from in a range of competitions from Division 1 to Division 5
Our Sub-Juniors start of with training at Goalkick at the youngest age, and from the U8 level they play in the VCFA competition. U8 and U9’s play on small pitches, whilst the U10-U11’s play on the full fields.
Our VCFA teams are based on friendship groups and the aim is to make room for all to play, whilst learning new skills. The VCFA aim is to get all teams playing as much as possible. Hence if there is an “uneven” number of teams in a competition, rather than finishing early, a round or two of special “Cup Games” is often played.
In the Juniors at Monbulk Rangers SC we play in the FFV as well as the VCFA from the U12 level. The introduction of the FFV at this stage, as our more competitive sides, means we generally hold selection trials at the start of the season. The coach and committee choose 16 players to represent the club in each of the Junior FFV Competitions from U12-U18.
The Junior VCFA teams, just like the Sub-Juniors, will often play a few rounds of “Cup Games” at the end of the year, in place of general “Byes”. This way we all get to play more of the game we love. Keep an eye on the fixtures to ensure you know what happens in your age group.
