Football Playing Style – “The Berowra Way”

Our aim is for all Senior teams, Men and Women and all top level junior teams play the same style of football. This allows an easy transition from junior football to our senior teams.

All teams whatever level are encouraged to play the “Berowra Way”.

It is our stated aim to have our senior teams filled with players who have been through our junior development programs.

All players in the club are encouraged to be masters of football, have the ability to beat their opponent, understand excellent positional play, and develop an excellent first touch. This begins at U6 and does not stop.

FOOTBALL STYLE OF PLAY – STATEMENT

At Berowra Football Club, we will play with a proactive attacking and entertaining style of play, from a starting 1,4,3,3 formation. We will play an effective and efficient possession based game using a structured build-up when appropriate, but using the fast counter attack when available.

We will look to create goal scoring opportunities through creative individual skill or by inventive combination play.

Defensively, our priority is to win the ball back as high up the field as possible by collective pressing and take advantage of a disorganised opponent. If this is not possible we will look to direct the opponents play is such a way as to make it predictable.

This style is underpinned by highly intelligent players with a strong, proud, positive, winning mentality
