History

Our Club

Curl Curl Youth Club was formed in 1958 and 2018 will be the clubs 60th anniversary.  It fields teams in the Manly Warringah Soccer competition and we have members from Under 6 to Over 45 in the mixed, men’s and ladies competitions.  

We are a medium sized club compared to our peers in the Manly Warringah competition.

Our Club continues to expand and we had 1192 playing members for the 2017 season (172 more than in 2016) in 89 teams.  In addition we had 210 registered coaches, managers and volunteers.  Over the last 6 years our player numbers have increased by 43%.

Our home fields are at Abbott Road in North Curl Curl where we have 2 full size pitches and various pitches for the younger age groups. We also have the use of another full-size pitch on the south side of the lagoon at Adams St.

We had fantastic floodlighting installed in 2010 covering the entire Abbott Rd area. Our next project is a new clubhouse which is at the DA stage.  

Player Development

The focus at Curl Curl is on developing our young players and so in 2013 we commenced Junior Development Training for U6-U10 on a Monday night at the futsal courts in Harbord. This program was extremely well received and has been continued and expanded ever since.  In 2017 it included U6 - U13  age groups as well as a dedicated girls session for W11 - W14 and was run at Abbott Rd.  It will return for its 6th season in 2018.


Coach Education and Mentoring
At Curl Curl we are also committed to increasing the level of coach education at our club.  Curl Curl presents its own grassroots and skill training courses and we strongly encourage our coaches to attend the course relevant to the age group with which they are involved. Our coaches can also access, free of charge, the courses conducted by the MWFA.  

Curl Curl is part of the MWFA Club Coach Coordinator program which provides mentoring, education and support particularly for our newer coaches, including evening workshops targeting the different age group stages.


In our younger age groups (U6 - U11) more than 70% of our coaches are correctly qualified for the age group they are coaching.  This is a fantastic achievement given that all our coaches are volunteers.  We plan to improve on that percentage in coming years. 


Canteen
As for many seasons, the dedication of a few individuals has provided a great service and raised valuable funds for the club. We are grateful to them and to all those teams who provide workers to assist in the canteen.


Committee
We have a strong committee, many of whom have been on the committee some years, however, we are always keen for new committee members.  There are lots of roles both big and small so please give a thought to helping out.
