Geelong Rangers Soccer Club
Geelong Rangers Soccer Club is a soccer and sporting club based at the W.H. Myers Reserve in Bell Post Hill in the northern suburbs of the City of Greater Geelong. Our club is inclusive and multi-cultural with a strong focus on coaching and player development, and a proud family-friendly atmosphere.
We currently have senior and junior teams in State and Geelong Regional leagues. In the last 4 years we have successfully grown our female participation with our Senior Womens team winning both the League and Grand Finals in 2018 & 2019. In 2019 we fielded teams across all age groups in the female competition and we plan to continue our growth in female participation. The return to football in 2022 saw Rangers enter our first State League women team and they continued to build on local success, winning their SL3 league, unbeaten and were crowned overall SL3 champions with a win against Fawkner. Rangers is committed to our female growth into 2023.
A key strength of our club is our structured approach to coaching and development through our affiliation with the Football Australia (FA) National Football Curriculum – a guaranteed method of developing quality players. Our commitment for the past few years has been to ensure that the FV curriculum is delivered effectively across every team in every age group.

Clubrooms and fields are located on the far-side of the sporting reserve (travel to the right around the oval for access).
Our home ground offers 3 soccer grounds – a main pitch and two training pitches. At the start of 2019 we installed competition grade lighting to Pitch 1 enabling night games to be played. Part of this installation also saw more lights added to Pitch 2 and in 2023 we will have competition lighting to all 3. Player facilities include full change rooms with showers including female friendly change rooms. Our club rooms are clean, comfortable and well-appointed, offering a full bar, meals area, full kitchen facilities and a dance floor. 2023 will see the City of Greater Geelong finalise the Myers Reserve Masterplan which will hopefully see a new pavilion in the next few years.

Underpinning our coaches is our affiliation with the Football Australia (FA) National Football Curriculum – a guaranteed method of developing quality players – with structured methods, licencing requirements, processes and lesson-plans ensuring a high-quality and consistent coaching experience for players of all age groups.
Our commitment for the past few years has been to ensure that the FV curriculum is delivered effectively across every team in every age group.

We are very proud of our family-friendly atmosphere and regularly run social activities, such as trivia nights and fundraisers, to bring players, parents and families together to have fun and make connections. Our family meal nights are a highlight of the week, with our dedicated group of volunteers serving meals for up to 200 people in the clubrooms after training.
The rangers way
The rangers way is the method that we live by both on and off the pitch. This is our way of showing the right mentality, a strong passion and the actions of the Ranger.
"We will have the heart of a Ranger, mind of a Ranger and we will be a Ranger."
Our jersey proudly displays our Geelong Rangers logo, with the lion rampant recognising our Club History and its founders. For senior home games, the blue jersey is worn with white shorts and red socks. For senior away games, the white jersey is worn with white shorts and white socks. For junior games, the blue jersey is worn with white shorts and red socks for all home and away games.
