The most accessible C/L club in Sydney is the Kuring-Gai Model Flying Club who have a magnificent dedicated flying field at St. Ives Showground past the St. Ives shopping centre and near Sydney’s northern beaches. K.M.F.C. has an official flying session most Saturday mornings and it often extends well into the afternoon. People often fly there on Sundays as well, and occasionally during the week. Visitors are most welcome and the club runs beginners days several times a year. KMFC also runs several Stunt, Combat and Team Racing Competitions each year. See the CLAS Competition Calendar for the dates. The club also runs a Xmas Party/Flying day in December each year. Past members are particularly welcome.
St Ives Football Club is part of the Ku Ring Gai District Soccer Association (KDSA) and plays competing teams from the Upper North Shore in the KDSA League. St Ives is one of the largest clubs in the KDSA and in 2009 we had 850 players ranging from the under 6 age group through to over 45s with an additional group specifically for children with intellectual disabilities. The St Ives Soccer Club was formed in 1957 and has been in continuous operation since then. It has grown to be one of the largest soccer clubs on Sydney’s North Shore, with an army of mums and dads and volunteers helping out behind the scenes.
Our philosophy at St Ives Football Club is to teach boys and girls to compete to the best of their ability and to enjoy the sport of soccer.
Our club house is at our home ground on Warrimoo Oval, St Ives Chase. There are changing sheds, BBQ facilities and a children’s playground at the back of the oval. Warrimoo is where many of our senior games take place, but we also have “home” grounds at Darnley Oval, Friars Oval and Toolang Oval.
St Ives first formed in 1957 and is one of the better known suburban Rugby clubs. Competing in 2nd division, they are one of the few remaining clubs that represent both Senior and Junior Rugby in the area.
The home grounds are at Hassall Park St Ives and everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy the atmosphere and clubhouse facilities overlooking the grounds.
