The Mitcham Junior Football Club is pleased to announce Jason Philactides as coach of our Under 12 team for Season 2016. Jason continues on in the role after enduring a very tough 2015, when the team was placed in B Grade after only winning 6 games the previous year in C Grade. The club recognizes that Jason is a fantastic junior coach! In 2015, he was not deterred by game day results against far stronger opposition and continued to work on the boy’s skills, teamwork and different game plans. Jason has played (and continues to play!) so much football himself that he reads the game and the players so well. There was marked improvement in individual players as the season progressed and as a team, they produced some great football towards the end of the season where they even got within a couple of goals of one of the higher placed teams. Hopefully the team will be placed in the right grade in 2016 and with some recruits joining them, can have a very competitive season. Nobody will be working harder to achieve that, than Jason! Best of luck boys!
