Youth soccer / futbol

Post by jk21 » Tue, 04 Jun 2013 8:50 am

How is youth soccer in Singapore? Are there clubs and associations or is it mainly handled through the elementary schools?

This is for a 10-year girl who has been playing 4 years and enjoys the game.

JSSL arsenal (do a google search) are the only comp I know that cater actively to girls. There are girls and mixed teams and girls only practice if you want it. My girls play there. ANZA has mixed teams.

Thank you for sharing the 2 options. Currently we are so engrossed with finding a school and then accommodations. Nice to know that we will have some options.

Hi, it depends what you are looking for from the soccer school or club...

I send my kids (10 yrs and 12 yrs) to Manchester United Soccer Schools. The coaches are great and the other kids are really nice (the coaches are from the UK and not Singapore, unlike JSSL Arsenal for instance who employ local coaches). They also use specialised equipment such as mannequins and mini metal goals which you don't see with the other soccer schools. Plus my kids had the opportunity to play on Old Trafford pitch.

Now I've tried a few schools I wouldn't recommend any others apart from MU.

Good luck.

Just be aware (and I will not name names here) that SOME do not allow girls! Others will allow girls but they may not be made very welcome. Good luck
