Sawtell FC Commence Pre-Season Training


The Sawtell FC senior mens and womens teams commenced pre-season training in January for preparation of the 2010 season. To date the coaches have reported a good turnout of players for some early evening beach fitness and a bit of fun.

(And in typical Sawtell style, some of the players have even managed to squeeze a quick surf in before training.)

With that in mind the club invites all senior and youth players, both past and present, to join in the pre-season training as there will be plenty of pre-season games and "friendlies" to help prepare for the commencement of Round 1 of the competiton.

If you would like to come down for a run, and would like to know the days, times and location of the pre-season training sessions, feel free to contact the team co-ordinators below.

For senior and youth men, contact 0401 560 944

For senior and youth women, contact 0468 943 755.

We welcome all players back to the club for the 2010 season and look forward to a strong year ahead.


Sawtell FC Club Meetings


Sawtell FC holds regular club meetings at the Sawtell RSL and all players, parents and supporters are welcome to attend to have a say in how your club is run.

We have a very dedicated and hard-working committee and a wonderful band of volunteers, but can always do with assistance. With that said, the club is mindful of not engaging anyone to do more than they are willing to commit to. So even if you can only help out a little, it is always appreciated.

The meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the Sawtell RSL Boardroom. The meeting starts at 7pm. We hope to see you there.





On Sunday 14th June, Toormina Oval came alive as more than 50 teams of young players in the under 6, under 7, under 8 and under 9 age divisions came together for a round robin style gala day.

The structure of the day was different from previous years, when all teams used to play off with eventual winners and losers of each age group. This year, in keeping with the Small Sided Football philosophy, there were no losers. Everyone played 6 games and at the end of the day ALL went home with a participation ribbon and a smile (and somewhat tired legs). There is no doubt that this style of Gala Day was a success. It not only took the stress off the organisers in the official tent, it also allowed for families and coaches to relax and not count goals. Instead of competition, the huge crowd came together in a carnival atmosphere, with countless gazebos set up for picnics and resting areas between games. With over 50 teams playing on 13 fields there was standing room only at some games, but there wasn’t a grumble from anyone- the spectacle of all those happy children enjoying the fresh air and exercise kept everyone happy. Combine all that with the well stocked canteen for which ‘Coleen’s cafe’ has been famous for many years, and you have a recipe for success.

Thanks goes to all those who assisted before and on the day. A special mention must be made of the tidy manner in which the fields were left- there was little if any litter to be picked up. The organisers and volunteers who put in a very long day at the fields were all proud of the day and look forward to repeating it again in 2010. Thank you to all the children who participated and to the adults who inspired the good sportsmanship. (Thanks also to the weather gods who blessed us with a fine sunny day!)
