A series of football clinics to boost the skills of junior players aged 5-12 will be held across the Northern Inland Zone during the July school holidays.
Northern Inland Football Technical Director, Howard Stubbs, will coordinate these programs, which are based on the FFA National curriculum which focuses on the four core skills (1v1, running with the ball, first touch and striking the ball). These programs will be delivered by accredited FFA coaches with the assistance of local football clubs and Northern NSW Football.
Enrolments are now open for the following clinics:
Inverell, Tenterfield and Glen Innes – July 16
Moree and Armidale July 17 and 18
Narrabri – July 19
Tamworth – July 19 and 20
Gunnedah and Quirindi – July 20
“These clinics will provide local children with a range of football development activities in a fun and relaxed environment,” Northern Inland Football, Technical Director Mr Stubbs said.
The clinics will focus on personal skill development and improving game knowledge.
Registration costs vary from $50 (1 day clinic) to $90 (2 day clinic) all junior & youth age groups are 3 hours per session and all participants will receive a football as part of their registration.
Mr Stubbs said this year’s clinics were being conducted by Northern Inland Football and aimed to build on the success of past clinics.
“We aim to provide a worthwhile and constructive holiday sports activity program that benefits the participants and the local football community. And, I encourage the “future Socceroos and Matildas” to enrol as quickly as possible as last years’ clinics were very popular!” Mr Stubbs said.
Pre-enrolment is essential and closes on July 11th. For further information or to book, please consult Northern Inland website.
