I would like to say a big thank you to all my U6’s that made it such a rewarding season to coach. It was honestly my privilege to help each of you grow, learn and have fun playing our game.
We started the season with one team & within a few weeks our numbers had surged to 20 kids so after discussions with the club & parents decided that we would run two teams. This gave us the opportunity to run two teams of similar ability each week and also the opportunity to rotate all the boys through both teams giving everyone a chance to play with each other. This would give our younger and less experienced boys an opportunity to watch and learn from the boys that had already had a season under their belt.
The core skills we worked on as a team were catch & pass, tackling, evasion, playing the ball, setting a defensive line and setting up an attacking structure. The kids showed a lot of improvement each week and it was great to see all the hard work at training coming off on game day as the season progressed.
Our defence also improved with every game. It was great to watch the boys get more confidence with their tackling as the season went on.
I would like to thank my Assistant Coach, Andrew Geraghty for all his help throughout the year and my amazing Manager, Lisa Mozes for her tireless organisation. Couldn’t have got through the year without you both.
Finally a big thank you to all the parents for their help throughout the year with training, manning the table, running the water, cutting up oranges & canteen/BBQ duty.
See you all in 2017, looking forward to it.
Coach: Ryan Morris
