Hillside Rovers Football Club
Welcome to Hillside Rovers FC
Hillside Rovers is a friendly football club based at Hillside Avenue School, but independent from the school and with many players from other schools in the area.
The club's philosophy is to get as many children involved in football, regardless of their ability, sex or nationality. We are not 'win at all costs' but seek to strike a balance between being a competitive club and also giving opportunity to children of all abilities.
Training sessions are held on Saturday mornings at Hillside School between 9.30am and 11.00am for Under 6's and Under 7's and from 9.30am to 11.30am (sometimes a little earlier) for all other age groups, from September to mid-May.
Our five year groups are from Year 1 (under sixes) to Year 5 (under 10's). We are run by volunteers who are all parents of players. We are affiliated to St Andrews Football Club. Historically, our players move on to there from Year 6, though for 2013/14 Hillside Rovers is planning a 9-a-side pitch at Hillside School for the first time, allowing our players to continue with soccer at Hillside for their final year at Hillside School.
If you are interested in joining Hillside Rovers, please ask one of your year group's coaches or click the "Contact us" link above and we'll get back to you very soon.

Invitation to year 1 boys and girls to try football
Football for Year 1 boys and girls is up and running, and we're on the look out for parents who can help run this. Next year's soccer for year 1 will start in September 2013, and invitations will be circulated via the school — or keep an eye on this website.
Other year groups are near capacity, so if you' d like to join we'd be grateful if you could first check with the year group coaches or a club official

Help with Saturday morning refreshments ... one example of how running Hillside Rovers relies on a team of volunteers. Most are parents of players, and we need a range of skills – it's not just footballers. Click here to read more about vacancies for volunteers.
