Children's Sports

Junior Sport Clinics - Basketball, Netball & Soccer

Loftus Recreation Centre runs Junior Clinics for Basketball, Netball and Soccer during each school term, and break for school holidays.

These clinics are for children ages 5-12 who have expressed interest in playing that sport, but are not yet ready to join a team. The clinics build their skills and knowledge of the sport, in a fun team environment.

There are sessions for beginners and advanced, so every child is welcome to participate. Come along for a casual session or join in for the entire school term.

Netball clinics are held on Mondays, with Soccer and Basketball held on Wednesdays. Children are welcome to participate in more than one sport choice.


Loftus Recreation Centre holds two Junior Soccer seasons per year. Our summer season regularly sees over 110 teams ranging from pre-primary aged, right up to year 11 and 12! This season is played over Term 4, and Term 1 of the following year.

Our summer season sees around 60 teams participating, and is played for Terms 2 and 3. Teams play on Friday evenings, with games running all throughout the terms, with a break over school holidays.

The final two Fridays of the season are semi-finals and finals matches played by the top 4 teams from each grade, however all other teams are scheduled to play end of season friendlies to welcome in the school holidays!
