Message From Senior Coach Neil Graham
Hi, my name is Neil Graham and this year I will be Senior Coach for St Marys Soccer Club. My role is to assist the coaches from Under 12 up in any way I can help. This can be from helping at training sessions to one on one coaching with individual players if asked. I've played for many years, still play with the club and have coached senior and junior teams down through the years. I'm available to all senior coaches and can be contacted on 0419692885. I'm looking forward to a great year of football for the club and hope to see you all out there this year.
A fun and engaging introduction to football for boys and girls aged 4-11.
What is the difference between Small-Sided Football and MiniRoos?
MiniRoos is the new name and brand for small-sided football. If your son or daughter played small-sided football in 2013 and is aged between 4 and 11 they will continue to play small-sided football, only it is now called MiniRoos.
My club only offers small-sided football - what can I do?
As MiniRoos was only launched in February 2014, local clubs may still be advertising small-sided football. Any small-sided football should be considered as MiniRoos. Small-sided football as a name will be replaced throughout the 2014 season. To learn more visit MiniRoos

Community All Star Program
It was a great day at St Marys Soccer Club on Saturday July 14. We had 3 All Star players attend - Josh Risdon (Perth Glory), Pedj Bojic (Sydney FC), and Mark Bridge (Western
Sydney Wanderers). There were plenty of smiles on the faces of both players and parents, as the All Star players were asked to sign posters, soccer balls, shirts and even caps. All 3 were great, and they spent lots of time with our players.Also, we feature in a story ("All Stars Out And About In The Community") on the Hyundai A-League website - check it out. It's on the home page, but if it is no longer there, try this link : http://www.footballaustralia.com.au/news-display/all-stars-out-and-about-in-the-community/70608
On Sunday morning, 4 of our Junior Coaches and 6 players attended sessions with the All Stars at Olympic. From all reports, everyone had a great time, with one of the players winning a jersey signed by all the players - congratulations. There is an article in the Western Weekender.
