The Premiers and Development team have finished their season.
The First Kicks programme introduced for junior football this season has started as a roaring success. Under this scheme, juniors play small sided games on smaller pitches. 5 and 6 years old play 3 v 3, 7 years old play 4 v 4, 8 years old play 5 v 5 and 9 years old play 7 v 7. With the smaller sized smaller pitches, all players are able to get involved in the game. All the midgets play 4 games of 10 minutes duration with five minute break in between for coaching and explanations. Most teams also train once a week where they learn movement, co-ordination and technique.
Unlike previous years where some players could go a season without kicking a ball, all players are now involved from the start and get plenty of opportunity to display their prowess. Parents are impressed as their children find the new format so enjoyable.
