WELCOME TO VILLA FC!

Alstonville and District Football Club (Villa FC) has been providing a fun football experience for the people of the Alstonville Plateau since 1972.

During our proud history we have focused on being an inclusive club promoting positive behaviours and participation in team sport.

The club provides a pathway for talented players with strong teams in both the men's and women's premier divisions and in the junior competitions.

Our sense of community and love for the game makes this a great club to be involved with. New players and volunteers are always welcome. Please click on the 'Contact Us' menu item above for all inquiries.

Good Sports Stories!!!


At Pottsville

Our 12yrs Girls Angels recently played at Pottsville. One of our players was injured (not through anything other than bad luck). We had no subs so were forced to play short. At this point we were leading the play 3 nil.

It was at this point as our player was being carried from the field (by some Pottsville supporters) that the young lady from the bench of the Pottsville team, without hesitation said 'we can help you out if you need. We can fill in for you'. This was so refreshing from the win at all cost world we find ourselves in. A case of kids just out to play soccer and have fun.

Thank you Pottsville! (from a Villa Parent)


At Lennox Head

A brief note regarding something that happened at a recent Gr12 B South game between the Alstonville Tarantulas and Lennox.

Mid way through the game a Villa player injured himself, the game was stopped and he opted to leave the field.

Without any prompting from the technical area, one of the Lennox players said “clap off the injured player guys” and the whole Lennox team promptly did so.

This was very impressive and unusual to witness, perhaps especially so as Lennox were so dominant in the game by then. I coach the Villa team but also have a Committee role in Wollongbar Alstonville Juniors rugby club, so I get to see a lot of kids sport! I still thought it worth giving back the positive feedback. More of it.

Thank you Lennox! (from a Villa Coach)

Kids on Sideline Behaviour


Parents all want their children to shine on the sports field. Yet there’s nothing that will dull a child’s sparkle more than having parents and spectators pressure them from the sidelines.

It can be an easy trap to fall into as an adult. We go to adult sports events where the noise of the crowd masks all but the voices of those nearest us. We comment out loud at players’ performances, roar at mistakes, and vocally urge our favourites to do better and go harder.

We call it atmosphere.

But at a child’s sports event, we are likely to be one of only a few dozen spectators. When we scream instructions or yell in disgust, our child and other children on the field can hear every comment, and they know where it comes from.

Gold at the end of the Rainbow

The Gr10 Stingrays struck gold at training last week - capturing this rainbow landing on our clubhouse. Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come for Villa FC.


Dunoon United Achieves Level 2

Villa FC would like to congratulate Dunoon United FC on achieving Level 2 FFA Club Accreditation.

Dunoon are the second club in FFNC to achieve this great achievement (along with Villa FC). Well done Dunoon!

FFA Accreditation is not just a label, but indicates a club striving for best practice in all areas of it's running and policies.

See the Northern Star article here.

Silent Saturday - on TV

There have been some skeptics with the Northern NSW Football initiative "SILENT SATURDAY", but the proof is in the pudding with the kids enjoying a game of football without interruption from adults across our region last Saturday. And after all, it is the kids game.

Thanks so much to the 95% of parents, coaches and spectators from all clubs who gave Silent Saturday a go and saw the benefits. Hopefully we can all learn to "just let the kids play" every week. Please see the great NBN footage below.



7 Ways How Yelling at Officials is Hurting Children

There is an interesting article about yelling at referees that you can find on the 'Play by the Rules' website here.

Also, our club has a referee abuse code of behaviour and we would like all club members to become familiar with it and put into practice good behaviour towards all officials at all times.

You can find our Codes of Behaviour here.

SILENT Saturday

Northern NSW Football’s Silent Saturday initiative for 2017 will be conducted on Saturday May 27.

The message to all coaches, parents and spectators who will be attending ALDI MiniRoos (5-11s) matches on this day is to encourage you all to “Keep Quiet” and “Just let the kids play”.

TO ALL FFNC MEMBER CLUBS

Every season I am regretfully obliged to communicate with too many member clubs in regards to allegations of behaviour (whether words or actions) that are contrary to reasonable measure.

Our sport has close to 7000 players and by implication, many thousands of parents and supporters, so having a clear expectation that behaviour is always absolutely appropriate, is in reality flawed by many factors.

After several weeks of incidents that are very disappointing, I write to each member club primarily to give clarity and disclosure on a range of items to everyone at the same time.

Aldi MiniRoos Info

MiniRoos is now sponsored by Aldi. MiniRoos is the name for organised football played by Gr6-11 players (ie: ages 4-11).

For more info and for the rules (under club resources), click here.


Roar Clinic a Big Success!

Over 100 players got to enjoy an afternoon being trained by the Brisbane Roar coaching staff at Geoff Watt fields today.

The inflatable field provided a great opportunity to try out their new skills and to just have some fun. Lucy pictured below certainly enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of football.

We would like to thank Brisbane Roar for coming all the way to Alstonville to inspire our young players. Well done!


MiniRoos Coaches & Managers Meeting (Wed 26 Apr)

There will be a MiniRoos Coaches and Managers meeting on Wednesday 26 April, 2017. This is compulsory for all MiniRoos coaches and managers.

Important new Working With Children Check information will be discussed. Also team gear, coach packs and playing strips will be handed out.

It is very important that all team officials attend as follows:

- Gr6-7 Meeting, 6-7PM @ GW Clubhouse
(followed by optional coaching session 7-8PM @ GW3)

- Gr8-11 Meeting, 7-8PM @ GW Clubhouse
(preceded by optional coaching session 6-7PM @ GW3)

We are looking forward to seeing you all there in prep for a great 2017 season!

MiniRoos Musters Completed

The MiniRoos (Gr6-11) musters are now completed and teams have been formed. So don't come back to any more musters. You should hear from your coach this week what team players are in and to organise a training day. Thanks to all who helped out during the muster.

ALL FOOTBALL OFF THIS WEEKEND

FFNC has called off all football for this weekend (31 Mar - 2 Apr) due to the flood and calls from SES for people to remain SAFE and stay at home if possible.

Games will be rescheduled at some stage so check the draw for updates in the coming weeks.

MORE PLAYERS WANTED!

We have had a very successful sign-on this year and most teams are now FULL, however we are wanting more players in particular for Gr10 MiniRoos (turning 10 this year) and Gr13 Mixed (turning 13 this year).

If you are interested please contact Matt Wiltshire on 0402 013 364 or visit the registration page of this website for how to register.

Junior Grading Now Complete (updated 18 Mar 2017)

We have now completed junior grading for all Gr12-16 teams. So please DON'T come back this Sunday or Monday.

Thanks so much to all the volunteers who gave up their time to help with grading. It can sometimes be a thankless job!

ALL TEAMS HAVE NOW BEEN FINALISED AND EMAILED TO PLAYERS/PARENTS.

Some players will no doubt be placed into a different team to last year, or not in the team they were expecting.

This happens every year and we ask that parents help their children realise they will still have a great time playing football regardless of what team they are in. We find it only takes a few weeks for players to adjust to a new team and make new friends, which can only be a positive!

We pride ourselves in trying to have an objective grading process that gives every player equal opportunity each year.

But please also note that the teams selected by one person, won't necessarily be the same teams selected by another person. There is no such thing as a perfect grading.

So we thank you for your patience and understanding.
