Introducing our new Technical Director

Dear parents, players and coaches:
 
I am honoured to have the opportunity to work with Peter and everyone at Kensington Junior Girls Soccer Club. I have gotten to know Peter and he is committed to delivering a sustainable and successful soccer club, one capable of immersing its players and parents into the soccer community and helping educate and develop the players technical skills and knowledge of the game.
 
To create such a club, the only option is to engender a club philosophy; something I personally have suggested is crucial for all ambitious clubs. That philosophy must be nurtured and developed by a group of people who are devoted to the club and feel responsible for something much larger than themselves.
 
Obviously it’s a great honour for me to be trusted with this role at this football club which means so much to so many people. I feel very humble.
 
My responsibility as Technical Director is to develop the technical skills of the players at the club, support the coaches and help them improve and be a point of contact for parents.
 
Also attached to this email is a document outlining the key traits for football players.
 
 
One of our key messages is that we want to unify everyone and get everyone to be singing from the same hymn sheet. Whether it is players, coaches or parents, everyone has a part to play.
 
You, as parents, know that you’re equally as important as the coaches. The team might lose a game, or might not play too well and that’s when the players and coaches need your support. We also, as coaches, have to give you something to cheer about. I’m sure you will respond if we go out there and you see that your children are proud and excited to play and willing to do their best for their team. We’ll do our best to get the results that everyone wants. We will make mistakes. We won’t always be immediately successful and we must understand that change/development is not rapid. It is a process, and one that requires patience. 
 
I’d just say if there’s excitement among the parents and players with the season approaching, then I can share in that excitement. We have to be patient though. Nothing will change overnight. We have to get it right between now and the end of the season and as I said earlier, there might be some disappointments but the biggest disappointment for me is if everyone who is involved in this club doesn’t give everything they have to give. If we do that then we have a good chance of building the club and developing the players correctly.
 
When you get a group of people that truly commit, and everybody puts everything into helping each other improve every day, you don't have to worry about anything else. You've done everything you can do. That's how I measure success and that's what I'm asking for from everyone involved in this club.

Kensington Juniors commits to the 'Don't Stand By - Stand Up' campaign against racism

FFV and VicHealth have joined forces to empower football clubs and their players, officials and spectators to safely intervene when they witness racism.

Don’t Stand By. Stand Up! aims to support the football community in responding and intervening safely when race-based discrimination is seen or heard. Importantly, the campaign will focus on racism in all its forms, from subtle exclusion to overt verbal abuse on and off the field.

FFV is committed to ensure that you have the tools to be informed and take action as required.
