  • Juniors

    First National Rangers St Agnes Football Club has five junior teams, which consist pf a under 10, under 11, under 12, under 13A and under 13B team. Most of our junior members come from the sub-economic areas on the Cape Flats. in Cape Town, which is well known for its gangsterism and drugs. Besides teaching and coaching them the game of soccer, we must sometimes act as the social worker, the parent and guidance teacher to some of the juniors in our club. We do this in order to create the right environment for them to thrive in and to show them another way, away from their normal everyday experiences. For the majority we provide transport to and from training and to matches on match days. In many cases, we provide the children with food in order for them to be nourished and sustained whilst they are in the Club's care. "TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK"

  • Seniors

    First National Rangers St. Agnes Football Club has three senior teams, which consists of the SAFA SAB (Summer) League, the Cape Town Tygerberg Football Association (CTTFA) Premier and Premier Reserve Teams. There teams play in the winter league. The Premier Reserve team is primarily the team who fast tracks youth team players to Premier and SAB teams. Quite a number of youth players are now regular players in the above mentioned teams. "IF YOU WANT TO BE THE BEST, YOU HAVE TO DO THE THINGS OTHER PEOPLE AREN'T WILLING TO DO" - MICHAEL PHELPS..

  • Veterans

    First National Rangers St Agnes Fc has four Veteran teams which consist of over 35A, Over40A, Over 45A and Over 45B Teams. There teams are for the most part players who have been with the Club for many, many years, who have played in the Club's top teams as well as having played professional football in South Africa. The veterans are extremely competitive and almost every year are among the trophy winners in the CTTFA Leagues. They are also the life blood of the club in terms of having more disposable cash than youth and senior players. Many of them are involved in the Junior and Youth structures of the club where they impart invaluable knowledge to the young players in respect of discipline, playing techniques and life skills."THERE'S NO TRAFFIC ON THE EXTRA MILE" - UNKNOWN

  • Youths

    Are youth teams range from under 14 to under 18 year old players. Most of our youth players have been with the club since juniors and have been progressed through the ranks.Some of them are now regular players in the SAB League, Premier and Premier Reserve Teams. The majority of them come from the townships on the Cape Flats, in Cape Town. It is very important to keep these youth players busy with football because they are at the stage of their lives where they are very impressionable and vulnerable to the lifestyle of gangsterism and easy money as well as drug abuse. To the end we fetch them for soccer practice and transport them back home. We do the same on match days. Some of them have moved onto professional clubs. Our club also assists some players from time to time with school educational and nutritional needs. "TOUGH TIMES DON'T LAST, TOUGH TEAMS DO" - UNKNOWN

Player Protection Policy Statement


POLICY PRINCIPLES


First National Rangers St. Agnes Amateur FC recognises the participation in sport makes an important contribution to a child’s development. A child’s natural sense of fun and spontaneity can blossom in a positive environment created by sports organisations. Sport provides an excellent opportunity for them to maintain good health, learn new skills, become more confident, build resilience, self-esteem and maximise their own unique potential. This is particularly vulnerable. 
The Club is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of all players in its care. It recognises the responsibility to promote safe practise and to protect players from harm, abuse and exploitation.

CHILD ABUSE 
This definition includes placing children at risk through something a person has done to them or something a person is failing to do for them. For those working the definition gets broken down further into categories of abuse, namely; 
- 1. Emotional abuse 
- 2. Physical injury 
- 3. Physical neglect 
- 4. Sexual abuse

- Identifying Child Abuse 
- Although the physical and behavioural signs listed may be symptomatic of abuse, they
may not always be an indicator and, conversely, children experiencing abuse may not 
demonstrate any of these signs. 
- Child abuse is often difficult to recognise. It is not the responsibility of anyone involved 
in the Club to decide whether or not a child has been abused. This is the role of trained
professionals. We all however, have a duty to act on any concerns about abuse.
