Sparrow Soccer School (SSS) belongs to the Hong Kong Junior Football League (HKJFL). The HKJFL schedules competition matches on most Saturdays from September to May. These matches are located all over Hong Kong.
It is the parents/guardians responsibility to ensure players arrive to the correct location, at the correct time, with the correct uniforms for each scheduled match.
Tournament Team members are expected to attend a special 1 hour ‘team strategy’ training session in Tung Chung every Thursday 6pm-7pm, on the week of a match.
SSS forms one team per age group. The 2019/20 season will have Under 7/8s, Under 9/10s and Under 11/12s. Each team has a minimum of 8 members.
Players in each age group Tournament Team are selected by the SSS Head Coach. Priority is given to SSS students that demonstrate commitment, by attending at least 2 regular classes per week (not including the special 1 hour Tournament Team training session on Thursdays), and ability/skill level. It is the Head Coaches discretion to allow ‘once a week’ students to enter the Tournament Team if their ability/skill level meet the requirements. You will be notified by Head Coach if you are selected.
The fee for the season to be on the Tournament Team is $1,700. This fee covers the mandatory operation costs for HKJFC (field hire, referee and player insurance), the cost of the Thursday night training sessions, the cost of the coach at Saturday matches, and a red SSS personalised Tournament team top.
Each Tournament Team member is required to complete a registration form on the HKJFL website to be covered for insurance and prove their birth date prior to playing.
