(g) We support Football Australia (FA) policy not to have competition tables for U/6 to U/10-11. FA want the emphasis of these younger players to be towards developing their ball skills (and having more fun) instead of just simply playing to win. Having no competition table also has the added benefit of allowing us to amend the draw (if required) to help minimise the number of high scoring one-sided games.
