Box Hill Premier League Women Welcome Back W-Leaguers for 2015

The women started their 2015 preseason during November to accommodate the earlier start to the coming season. Many of the 2014 squad have already attended sessions and have shown some good form after the 2 month break.

In addition to the players who have been at the sessions, returning in the New Year are W-League stars Ellie Brush and Melissa Barbieri.

Ellie’s Canberra United have made the Grand Final, having overcome Melbourne Victory in the Semi Final. Ellie has been a crucial part of the team’s success, as she has been since the inception of the W-League, in one of the closest and most competitive W League seasons yet. We look forward to welcoming her back in 2015.

Bubs proved yet again that she is among the country’s leading keepers during the W-League season as part of a largely inexperienced but exciting Adelaide team. Wins over each of the top three were highlights of the season – and the clean sheet she kept against Perth Glory was the only game in which the minor premiers did not score all season. She has been a loyal and dedicated player of club and we are excited to have her return as the senior keeper.

There is one more session prior to Christmas and, after a 3 week break, preseason training will resume on Wednesday 7 January.

Box Hill United Soccer Club is a progressive football club based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne participating in the National Premier Leagues Victoria.

Whilst we have taken the decision to not turn away any players from the club at the MiniRoos level, as an NPL club, we do have restrictions on fielding a maximum of 3 Boys/Mixed teams in each of the u9, 10 and 11 age groups. We are also working with other NPL clubs in the off-season to create an u8 competition.

Further to this, subject to ground allocations, we may also need to cap teams at a maximum of two per age group. This is to ensure that we can actually provide grounds to train and play on. We don’t take the matter of turning away kids from the club lightly, and we see this as a last resort.

Our team selection process is to place each player into the appropriate team based on age and ability. This means that some kids get the opportunity to play up an age group. We believe strongly that this approach fosters a greater focus on learning and development, as well as ensuring kids get enjoyment in playing the game we love, and ultimately as a club, provide a ready group of players for the future NPL Junior teams.

All interested external players are required to register via this link here.
