For the love of the game.

Currently fielding seven men’s teams across two competitions at Mt Barker United SC we’ve got you covered, no matter what level of competition you seek. From the fully committed player with a single-minded determination to play high-level senior football, to those just looking to have a kick with mates.

Our NPLSA State League Men’s Program, consisting of three squads (u18/Reserves/Firsts) is currently competing in the third tier Football SA competition – State League 2, but the club has set the goal to reach the top tier by the end of the decade. 

Mt Barker United SC also has a strong Community Mens Program with teams competing in the Football SA affiliated Collegiate Soccer League. From our As and Bs where the skill level is high and competition willing to teams competing in the lower divisions where the glory days might be a little further in the rear-view mirror, we can find a spot that suits you.

No matter what level you play, the club will endeavour to give you the support needed to perform at that level and importantly, help nurture your love of the game.

What’s going on…



JULY 3, 2021

Enjoyably serious

NPLSA State League

Those motivated to play high-level senior football will be drawn to our NPLSA State League squads – u18, Reserves and First Team.

Seen as the natural progression from our JPL pathway, the u18s squad is the launchpad to senior football. As the player starts their senior football journey they will learn competition for spots increases and game time isn’t guaranteed but earned and whilst tenure counts and helps building a bonded, cohesive group, ability, determination and commitment are also important factors in selecting squads at this level. Bringing in talent to improve the group from other clubs also creates healthy competition for positions, which is required to build sustained success and progression to higher leagues.

The players are semi-professionals, or part-time footballers at this level, but a number of the elements of professional full-time football are introduced to enable the player to be the best they can be. High performance practices such as nutrition plans, strength and conditioning programs as well as game and training video analysis are all utilised at this level.

The players also have access to the club Physio and other medical professionals through club arrangements to ensure they stay healthy both physically and mentally.

Whilst expectations are high for players at this level, the club aims to make it enjoyably serious.

Seriously enjoyable

Community Men

The Mt Barker United SC Community Men’s group has a place for everyone – regardless of age, skill or fitness level.

The club currently has four Community Men’s teams who compete in the Collegiate Soccer League on Saturdays, but is always looking to expand as numbers demand. You can be as competitive or relaxed as you like, training once a week there is a group that fits your needs. All squads are well coached by club legends, operating out of the state-of-the-art Summit Sports & Recreation Park, with the latest training equipment including video analysis using Veo camera technology. Of course, it’s not all analysis the footage can be used to cut together a pretty cool highlights package too.

All games are played with a great spirit at a good level with a number of the players having played at a high level in the past, so by the end of the game you will have earned your post-game refreshments.

If you’re a Should-have-been, Could-have-been, Want-to-be, Has-been or Time-poor Young Pro looking to play football in a seriously enjoyable environment the Mt Barker United SC Community Men’s Program is where you need to be.
