The Cove FC ( soccer club) was established in 1983, joined the Football Federation SA (FFSA) in 2009, and since creating a junior development program in 2009, has grown to become one of the strongest and most popular clubs South of Adelaide, with a passionate Executive Board, Parent Group and talented players.
The Cove FC is registered with the Football Federation of South Australia (the FFSA) and participates in the FFSA State League 1 competition, FFSA Junior Premier League (JPL), Junior State League (JSL), Miniroos and FFSA Girls competition. We field miniroo and junior teams from Under 6s to under 16s inclusive, Under 11 to Under 17 girls teams, Under 18s, Reserves and Seniors team.
Our vision is “more than a club”. What does this mean to us? It means we want The Cove FC to be more than just a football club, we want it to be a community. We aim to achieve this by being inclusive and transparent, and forming strong links between juniors, seniors, coaches, volunteers and parents.
Our Director of Football, Tom Ballantyne is highly sought due to his exceptional calibre. He is a highly qualified and experienced as a coach in the UK, and Australia, our Director mentors our coaching staff and is creating a football philosophy which we believe is second to none.
In 2013 The Club, with our members, created an ambitious Strategic Plan which will see The Cove build on our strong foundations to grow to include free after school training programmes, 5-a-side teams and tournaments, a youth development Academy and a female player programme which was introduced in 2017.
In 2017 the Club received funding from the South Australian Government and the City Of Marion council in relation to the constructions of new clubrooms and pitches on Majors Road and we expect to relocate to these premises in 2019.
As a Club we have achieved the following:
- STARCLUB Accreditation which recognises our professional approach to club management.
- In 2016 we have achieved our NCAS 2 Star Accreditation.
