Overview  

Ku-ring-gai council has a policy that limits the number of hours we can use each field and the times that certain age groups are allowed to train.  We are also restricted in the number of players we can train on a field at any one time.  SIFC must work within the guidelines set out by KMC when allocating training times for teams. 

A summary of KMCs policy follows:

  • We are limited to 30 hours usage of our home ground  – Warrimoo Oval and this includes the hours used for games on the weekend. Warrimoo oval can therefore be used for 13 hours training during the week.  
  • In 2023 we have been allocated time on St Ives Showground on Wednesdays for training. This will mean we are responsible for dressing this oval for games. 
  • We have limited number of players allowed on fields at any time.
  • We are not permitted to train in the goal mouth at any times.


Based on the above requirements we have adopted the following guidelines for allocating fields to teams.  
If team numbers change we may need to change our allocations .  If fields are damaged or become unavailable we may need to alter our policy. 

U6 - U18 [Non Development teams]
Teams will be allocated 1 hour time slots on Wednesday (4:00pm-7:00pm) at St Ives Showground.

U6 and U7 teams will be allocated a SIFC paid Junior Coach.  These coaches will have completed the Youth Coach Development Programme (YCDP).  All grounds will be supervised by a qualified Mentor Coach from either XLR8 or SIFC who are there to assist team coaches.   Other teams will have a parent coach or can request a SIFC paid coach

U7 - U11 [Development/SAP teams ]
Teams will be allocated two training sessions per week at Warrimoo Oval or St Ives Showground.  Coaching will be provided by Brazilian Art Football (BAF)

U7 and G7     - Tuesday and Thursday    4:00pm - 5:30pm
U8 and U9     - Monday and Wednesday 4:00pm - 5:30pm
U10 and U11 - Monday and Wednesday 5:30pm - 7:00pm

U12 - U18 [Super League Teams]
Super League teams are allocated 1 1/2 hours per team on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the St Ives Showground.  Coaching will be provided by Brazilian Art Football (BAF)

Adult Teams [MAA and O35, O45]
Training at Warrimoo or St Ives Showground  7:30pm - 9pm on a Wednesday

Extra time will be made available subject to availability 

General Information

Where possible, some age groups may be able to submit at least two preferences for consideration. 
Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate preferences but due to the number of teams we have to fit onto limited fields there will be no guarantee that preferences can be granted.  In some ages, designated fields and times will be assigned.

The Football season does not start until April.  We have limited access to training fields in February/March and NSFA may not know our final field allocations until late March.  Teams wishing to train in February/March can apply to do so and will issued times by the committee if available.  These times are likely to be irregular. 

Teams choosing to train unofficially on Council grounds without  prior club approval may incur a FINE!
Training that is not approved, is not covered for Insurance purposes and we risk losing grounds if we are found to be using them without permission.  

Pre-Season Trial matches must first be sanctioned by NSFA.  This includes matches with other NSFA clubs as well as clubs from other Associations.  It does not apply to intra-club matches.  Sanction forms must be lodged by the club Secretary.   Training within the goal mouth is strictly prohibited throughout the season.

For the St Ives Showground in Season 2024 – training timetables will be available mid March – Team Managers should send in preferred training times for Wednesday at the St Ives Showground - First in will get preferred time
