The draw:    Monday 17 February 2014        Wednesday 19 February 2014

A chance to play football over summer! AMI Nelson Suburbs are running a Summer Soccer league for all ages and abilities. Our aim is to provide you and your friends the opportunity to have a fun night out, playing the "Beautiful Game".


The last nights of Summer Soccer (Mon 17 Feb & Wed 19 Feb) will look like this:

6.00 Friendlies (28 min game with a swap over at half time, but no break)
6.30 Friendlies (the 6 o'clock teams can have their sausages etc)
7.05 (sharp) Presentation of all league and Spirit award winners!!
7.30 Friendlies (the 6.30 teams can have their sausages etc)
8 (the 7.30 teams can have their sausages etc)

The BBQ will keep running and there will be drink specials all night!

(24 & 26 Feb - Reserve night (will only be used if we have a cancellation))

  • 21 October to week ending 13 December 2013 (8 weeks)
(Mon 16 Dec and Wed 18 Dec will be reserve nights if we have cancellations)
  • 13 January to week ending 21 February 2014 (6 weeks)
(Mon 24 Feb and Wed 26 Feb will be reserve nights if we have cancellations)

All games are played on either Mondays or Wednesdays (Family Grade just Wednesdays)

The games start at either 6pm, 6:45pm or 7:30pm and are 20 minutes each way

The whole season includes 3 weeks of grading games, 10 weeks of league games and one week for friendlies, presentations etc.

League winners are found by adding up the points from all 10 league games

Cancellations: We'll post on this website and send out an email to the team managers, by 4.30 pm if we have to cancel.


All games are played at Saxton Field. The games are now on the pitches closest to the club rooms.

Bar open!!

The bar is open in the clubrooms from 6 pm till about 9 pm on both Summer Soccer nights. All teams are given the opportunity to pick one m v p each week. The m v p is eligible for our 2 for 1 deal on drinks (buy one and get another one, for the same or lesser value, for free). The m v p needs to advise bar staff their team name when purchasing drinks so this can be noted on our master list.

Changing rooms: We'll open up some changing rooms to make it easier for people who come straight from other activities and for those who wish to change after their games.


  • Social Grade ($225) any combination of players 
  • Mixed Grade ($225) must have at least 3 women or 3 players under 14 years on the park at all times 
  • Family Grade ($150) a combination of 2 parents and 4 children 11 years and under on the park at all times. Parents can't score or go in goal

Teams can have a squad of more than 6 players, but all games are 6-aside and play rolling subs. 

The Family Grade is intended to be very child focused and to be played in an even less competitive atmosphere. This year we'll use a size 4 ball to suit the younger kids better. The Family Grade will be run on Wednesday nights. A team made up by parents and children could be suited to play in the Mixed Grade.

Please provide information about your team on the registration form, eg; ages, abilities, genders etc. If you are re-registering it would be good to know if your team name has changed and if the team will be similar to last year. This will all help us with grading.

Single player: If you'd like to play, but don't have a team please let us know and we'll do our best to find a team for you.  Please email us using the address below.


Registrations closed October 6, 2013. Both nights are full!! 

 Any queries can be sent to Monica Sanderson at  summersoccer@suburbsafc.org

Your team needs a team manager who we can contact by email and phone. The team managers will receive draws each week and any correspondence from us, they are also responsible for making sure that the whole team knows the Summer Soccer Rules and for enforcing that the games are played in the Summer Soccer Spirit.

Payments can be made in 2 ways: 
  • Cheque (post to Nelson Suburbs, P O Box 2161, Stoke, Nelson 7041) 
  • Direct credit; Please note that the bank account has changed (Westpac 03-0703-0354112-02 please use team name as reference)

Whilst we hope you'll never need to be stretchered off the field and taken to hospital in one of these, they'll be on hand for all summer soccer games for a cold compress or bandage if needed.  They have plenty of awesome colours to choose from!


A HUGE thanks to our sponsors – without your support we couldn't make this great game possible for the community:
