It All Starts Coming Together !
The players in these age groups are getting bigger, stronger, faster and their skill levels have been developed to the stage where they know what to do, and how to do it , they are now just getting on with the game and having fun in a very competitive environment.
Our players are now training hard 2 nights a week and look forward to playing their games on a Sunday.
Traditionally this age group is the hardest to retain players in as there seems to be more things going on in their lives than ever before, and they struggle to choose what to do and which way to go !
Team sports are the best way to keep involved with mates , grow your 'Real' social networks and form bonds that can last a lifetime.
Strong role models, from our coaching staff ensure that our players are still on track during these 'busy' times.
Every player gets a chance to play in all the positions on the ground. It doesn't matter who is the tallest , shortest, fastest, or most skilled in the game, every player on the team gets a chance to have a go and have fun. They are now well on there way to learning to hold their positions around the ground and remember set game plays
" Our Open Youth Players are a very important group of players that we want to develop to their full potential and offer them greater opportunities as they transition to Senior Football "
