Welcome to the Breakaways

We welcome players of all ages, gender, backgrounds and levels of experience. Our existing players range in age from 18 to 49.  Some players had never kicked a football before their first training session. Some are now exceptional and you will learn a lot.

All you need to bring to your first Breakaways session is your enthusiasm, some boots and always a sense of humour.

Training Schedules & Events

We welcome new recruits to the Breakaways all year round. The Breakaways Home ground & Training facility is Mahoney Oval, Wharf St, Marrickville

  • Breakaways Club Training
    • Tuesday & Thursday nights 6:30-8:30
    • Newtown Breakaways train rain, hail or shine … but if ground closures are enforced by the council, an alternate gym session will be arranged and updates provided on the public facebook page.
    • Pre-season training has commenced. The focus of pre-season training will be on strength, conditioning, and fundamental skills. It is a good opportunity for newbies to pick up skills and for returning players to shake off the rust and prepare for the new season.
