“This is my 5th year with this group of kids, I have seen them develop very well over the last few years. Moving from SAP into juniors is a transition for players. Our early focus will be to work on the players quickly gaining an understanding of their on-field roles given it will be their first season of 11 v 11. The understanding and implementation of those roles on the field will be a key to the growth and development of our 13’s squad.
We will develop a positive team environment, which will enable the boys to learn and improve while enjoying their football. The overall goal is to have each player improve technically over the course of the season and to play an attractive, possession based, positive style of football which leads to many goal scoring opportunities."
