World Cup warriors welcome! Team chants optional

This spring is another sell-out season for the upcoming Active Melbourne City Sports Spring soccer competition.

The 14-week soccer competition has men’s, mixed and open competitions available at lunch times and evenings at the Docklands Sports courts each week.

The game features a five-a-side format that is a fast-paced and dynamic version of the game with modified rules like the low bounce ball, tailored for smaller pitches like Docklands.

The past autumn season sold out with over 70 teams competing from AMP, ANZ, Metro Trains Melbourne, Medibank, Mercer, Myer, Maddocks and NAB.

The autumn season grand finals have just concluded with Rohan Pereira, captain of the Twinkle Stars United Twilight Soccer competition, leading to a 5 – 3 victory over the MetroMatic’s.

Team captain, Rohan Pereira and the Twinkle Stars United were thrilled to take home the winner’s trophy.

“Our team has been participating in the twilight league over the last 4 years. We first entered as a group of friends who used to work in different companies in the Docklands area and recently we have expanded to two teams comprising of 16 players,” Mr Pereira said.

“The competition helps us remain close knit in many ways and we look forward to meeting more people along the way.”

Active Melbourne City Sports also offers soccer, basketball, netball, barefoot bowls, touch football and dodgeball competitions, all held at the Docklands Sports Courts and Flagstaff Gardens venues each week during lunchtime.

There are still a few places available in the upcoming Urban Street Cricket Spring competition at Flagstaff Gardens.

The program runs every Monday for eight weeks plus finals, beginning on August 28.

The 40-minute lunchtime program is designed to promote a healthy, active lifestyle for inner city employees.

It features fast-paced games with a maximum of six players per game, with each team member getting a bowl and bat and of course, one hand one bounce, automatic wicket keeper and six and out applies.

The spring season will commence on August 31. Teams have until Friday, August 18 to sign up for Urban Street Cricket. To register, visit amcs.melbourne.vic.gov.au
