At the last Committee meeting we agreed to spend some money to have the Football NSW HPU Coaches attend our regular training sessions. To start off with each team will have a session with one of the the coaches. We’ll see how well that is recieved before deciding whether or not to expand the program.
The sessions started last week with U8 White, U11.2,, but were washed out for U15, U16 and U13G. These will be held this week if it does stop raining. The aim is to aid in both Player and Coach development. The U11 girls will have their turn next week. See below for info for the SSG / Roo Ball Teams. The issue so far has been that the coaches can’t start untill about 5:00pm, and most of the Roo ball Teams start training earlier than that. When Steve does get in contact with your team to change your training time please do everything you can to support this initiative. I believe that there is a great benefit in the work that these guys do with both the players and the coaches.
As you may well be aware the club is funding an initiative whereby all players will be given access to professional “academy” coaches. The intent being the players get to experience a professional session and a bit of development for the coaches and parents. I have been given the task of co ordinating the SSG teams. As you could appreciate the coaches involved in the academy we are using can only do these sessions after their “full time” work hours. As a result the following timetable has been arranged;
Mon 7th June 8Green 4:30 to 5:30
Tues 8th June 7Green & 7White 5 to 6pm
Wed 9th June 6White,6Green, 6Yellow 4:30 to 5:30pm
Tues 15th June 9 Green 5 to 6pm
Wed 16th June 9White 4:30 to 5:30pm
It would be good if the majority of people can support this initiative as it has no cost associated with for all involved. You may or may not wish to continue your normal training times on these days. I am only doing the academy session with my team on my training day though. Any dramas let me know.
