From July, floodlights will begin to be installed at St James. In preparation for this milestone at Coledale Waves we are having some crucial surface improvements made over the next 3 weeks. You can help your club by staying off the main field at St James from 10th Feb to 3rd March 2021
This will give our hardworking home pitch the best start to a season it’s ever had and help ensure the grass is as good as possible when the lights begin use.

Thanks to everyone who’s worked so hard achieving this and apologies for the inconvenience in having to stay off the pitch but it will all be worth it.

Who are we?

We are a friendly, fun and community driven junior football club, based in beautiful Coledale, in the northern suburbs of Wollongong.

From small beginnings back in 1999, our club has grown into one of the largest in the Illawarra and continues to go from strength to strength.

We have almost 400 junior players, from under 6s through to under 17s. Our club philosophy is ‘football for everyone’ and everyone is welcome at St James Park, home ground for our girls’, boys’ and mixed teams. We encourage everyone to join in and play regardless of ability and experience.

How we roll!

Our club is a registered sporting association and is run completely by volunteers. We have a strong committee of about 30 volunteers, which oversees the key roles. But we also rely on parents and carers to help on game day and with training sessions.

It’s important to acknowledge that our kids only get to play the beautiful game thanks to the generosity and commitment of our volunteers.

Many hands do make light work and there is an expectation that if your child plays for the club you help whenever you can.

In the Pink - Supporting the McGrath Foundation

From the 2018 season, all our players from under 8 upwards will adopt pink socks to match our new pink shirts, in support of the McGrath Foundation and to help raise awareness of breast cancer. See recent article
