Football at The King's School
Football at King's has established itself as a popular sport in the winter season. The School has committed significant resources into developing a marvellous football precinct comprising seven pitches to cater for all boys across a wide variety of ability levels.
We supplement our enthusiastic and experienced teaching staff who form the base of the coaching program with a number of professional expert coaches, to ensure that all boys are extended and reach their maximum potential during training.
Close links with professional organisations such as Football Development Australia have ensured that we have the capability of delivering a coaching program designed to foster the development of players at an early age. A concentration on skills and fitness supplement the technical and tactical focus of the program and King's has seen a marked improvement in results over time.
Boys develop a great deal of confidence and self-belief as a result of the development of skills that enables them to be competitive and self-assured as they pass through the program. Teamwork, sportsmanship and discipline under pressure are all by-products of player development and lead to educational benefits for boys both on and off the pitch.
Our facilities generate interest from a variety of organisations and the annual Australian Junior Football Sevens Tournament has become an annual event on the calendar of many football clubs from far and wide.
We have an enthusiastic and supportive parents' support group that work hard to create a bond with all families of the players involved in the sport. The culmination of activities on any Saturday sees the School 1st XI run out to do battle against the opposition from any of the AAGPS Schools in the competition and the setting and quality of the magnificent Wanderers' field creates an expectation of results amongst the School as a whole.
