Sapphires football encompasses Girls Under 6’s to Under 11’s, with players taking part in small sided games with modified field sizes and playing numbers. As a player progresses through the Sapphires age groups the field size increases as well as player numbers, preparing them eventually for the full size field version of 11v11 football that we see being played in the W-League every weekend. The smaller size teams and field size give the players more time with the ball which greater enhances their interaction and enjoyment playing football.
