The South Coast Taipans is the Illawarra and South Coast’s representative Futsal club and currently plays in the NSW Futsal Premier League Competition which is amongst the strongest combined, junior/senior, club competitions in Australia.
The club was founded in 2007 by a small group of friends and family that have been associated with representative Futsal for many years.
The club was registered for two main reasons being to provide a local platform to showcase the Futsal talent in the Illawarra and to provide a pathway for players to compete consistently at the highest possible level.
Today The South Coast Taipans is a volunteer led, community based organisation continuing to provide our local youth with the support and facilities to learn, play and enjoy Futsal.
The club was named after the famous one of the local theme park attraction – “The Taipan”. There is also some synergy with the inland Taipan which is a snake commonly found along the East Coast of Australia. The snake is extremely quick, elusive and highly venomous; things the club wanted to figuratively be known for.
In 2017 The Taipans boast players from Under 9’s to Open Men’s/Women’s in both male and female teams. The club is in its third year in the Premier Competition and is looking to continue going from strength to strength.
