Socks: $15 a pair

Boots and shin pads are compulsory and players are not permitted to play without them. These are available at a number of sporting goods stores e.g. Stirling Sports.
When purchasing a ball, please ensure players have a ball of the appropriate size for the grade they play in:

Central United has a strong focus on developing its Juniors and Youth for playing in future top Mens and Womens teams.
For holiday skills courses, goal keeper training and other information please go to our Player Development page.
Generally younger teams are coached by a parent or parents willing to look after a team for the season while our older Metropolitan, Conference and Premier Girls teams will have appointed coaches. Courses and assistance for all coaches will be available from both within the club and through AFF. Our aim is to have all Junior and Youth coaches up-skilled and qualified in line with the Whole of Football Plan's vision.
