Trials Start on October 29th!

Nathan Kaspers (from Hamilton U16 in 2015) played this year for Ballarat in NPL U18 League and the Kaspers family are more than happy to discuss any queries you may have regarding the commitment involved in NPL. Through 2016 there was 2 training sessions per week in Ballarat and matches alternate – 1 week Ballarat, the following week in Melbourne (1 in Bendigo) so every 2nd week is an away game.  Ballarat participate in the Western division of NPL Juniors so matches are this side of Melbourne.

You are welcome to contact Samantha Kaspers @ for further information.

All Hamilton Soccer Club Matches this Sunday 8th May have been moved to Warrnambool

Please note that due to continuing ground works at Pedrina Park all games for this Sunday 8th May in the WDSL have been moved to Harris Street Reserve, Warrnambool.
This means that all games including the under 13s (11:15am kick off), under 16s (1:00pm kick off) and Seniors (3.00pm kick off) will take place in Warrnambool.
We understand that this places a strain on all our members participating in the WDSL but for safety reasons and playing conditions the switch was unavoidable and we are sorry for the inconvenience. We also understand this Sunday is Mother’s day and that some players may become unavailable as a result. Could you please contact your coach if you will be unavailable for the match this Sunday.
For those that are able to play please arrive 30 minutes before kick off to get ready.
We are liaising with council to try to get the ground works completed as soon as possible and hope that the next home game will be able to take place at Pedrina Park.
If there are any concerns or questions please contact me or Julie Pickering. Otherwise I hope to see all juniors at training on Saturday morning at 9.30am at Pedrina Park.
