There will be a goalkeeping session conducted next Tues 9th May from 5.30-6.30pm. Goalkeeping coaching is often forgotten about so this is a good opportunity for all aspiring goalkeepers to fully understand the position and be exposed to training techniques that assist ball handling, ball distribution and quick response.
The session is open to kids in the U6 to U11 ages and will be run by the Club’s Representative goalkeeper.
Please encourage all aspiring goalkeepers, whatever their age, to come down and take part.
We’ll meet at the dressing sheds, across from the canteen, at 5.20pm.
What another brilliant Clinic we had this week, the weather was glorious and the playing conditions were excellent.
We would like to thank all the kids who participated in the Football Skills Clinic this week.
A big thanks to our talented and patient coaches Jono Nolan, David Cencigh (aka DC) and Michael Dettman (aka Mick). From all accounts, everyone appeared to enjoy themselves including the coaches!
The feedback from parents was positive and the clinic well received by the kids.
The clinic runs twice a year in April and July. For more info, visit the Holiday Skills Clinic page of our website and lookout for the upcoming clinic scheduled for July this year!
Again, thanks to all involved, especially the KIDS!
