THE FRIENDLY CLUB

Camden RSL Soccer Club was formed in 1984. The club’s home ground at the time was Onslow Park until 1991 with the move to Belgenny Reserve. In May 1998 the club was incorporated and name changed to Camden Falcons Soccer Club.

Over the years we have had a number of teams as Campbelltown Premiers and Ron Dine Cup winners. It is club policy currently to provide competition winners with club jackets in recognition of their achievement. These are black and red with the Falcon logo embroided on them. The rest of the club players are given recognition for their efforts by being presented with awards as decided by the club committee and dependant of finances. This all happens on presentation day held a few weeks after the end of the season. Throughout the season there are money raising activities run, with most monies being put back to the players with equipment etc. and some monies used for general running of the club. The club draws on parents from within the club to coach or manage teams. We have coaching co-ordinators and experienced coaches available within the club to assist any new coaches and a devoted voluntary group, the committee, who work hard not just on weekends but during the week to ensure the successful running of this club.

The excitement generated in 1995 with the approval by council to allow this club to finally build a canteen/clubhouse we believe began a new era for the club. At the end of the 1995 season, stage 1, the canteen, was built and in use for 1996. Stage 2, the clubhouse, in 1997 was well under way and we are sure will be the envy of many other clubs. This can be put down to the hard work by a band of people from within this club, who have given up their time, holidays and/or weekends, to ensure that this club has a special building for the children and sports people in Camden that they can identify with and be proud of. Camden Council finally passed the building which enabled us to open the Clubhouse and facilities to the community. The Clubhouse will enable the community to see the work completed by all the volunteers in the club, and hopefully with your support the Club will continue to foster football in the community with the success that it has achieved.

ANZAC Day is a big day on the Australian calender and as part of our community involvement, the club has been taking part in the local ANZAC Day March for some years now. We urge players to come along in soccer uniform and join us in this special Australian Anniversary.

Supporters Jackets, Shirts, T-shirts and Caps can be purchased through the club from the canteen.  Coaches and Managers are all given Camden Falcons Polo Shirts to wear in their representation of the club during the winter season.

The local competition is managed by Macarthur Football Association (formerly Macarthur Soccer Association) and as such, Camden Falcons have recently changed their name to reflect the global recognition of the game of Football.  In 2013 we have proudly changed the name of our club to become the Camden Falcons Football Club.
