English + Football (Soccer)
Students wishing to combine their English Studies with playing football, can at Townsville International English School. Students have the opportunity to Study and combine their courses with football training at a local club. Playing and training while studying in Australia, allows students to fully immerse in the community and practice their English skills, meet local players, and interact with a local community group. The friendships, community connections and positive outcomes are endless and it is a fantastic opportunity for Students to develop their language skills, continue their fitness and football skills and form a link with the local community. Players can play at different levels and will need to commit to night time training sessions and weekend games. Teams are selected in February each year. Students should enquire about an early course intake if they are considering joining a local football club. Football registration fees are about $500 for the season. Players will also be required to buy playing shorts and socks in the club colours. If students are interested in registering with a football club they should indicate this on their TIES Enrolment Form.
