The Mitcham Junior Football Club is very happy to announce that Brad Aujard will be the coach of our Under 10’s for Season 2016. Brad had a fantastic first season coaching the boys at Under 9 level in 2015. The boys played an exciting brand of football and you could tell that most of them were just really wanting to tackle the opposition which they will get the opportunity to do in 2016 at Under 10 level. Brad really worked hard with this group, making sure that they all got opportunities to play in most positions on the ground during a game which is a huge part of development at this age. Brad is a very competitive coach striving to bring the best out of each player. You only had to witness him addressing the players at the breaks to realize that he had the ultimate respect of his players by the way they concentrated and listened to his every word – something not easy to achieve at that level! The team won the Lightning Premiership early in the season, which was a fantastic effort and one that excited the whole club. Brad will continue to work on the skill level of all players in 2016, developing them to play in different positions, while also working on game plans at training that the boys can confidently take into games on a Sunday.
