Killarney Athletic A.F.C. Under 11 Development weekend 2013
Date 17th, 18th & 19th May
Robin O’Day is the director of this Under 11 soccer weekend our club is hosting in May.
This event is not a tournament but friendly matches. Emphasis is based on player development. 9 a side matches. Teams play min of 5 games over the weekend. Matches are 30 minutes. This is about clubs coming and playing a minimum of 5 matches each & giving everyone of their players plenty of game time in a fun safe environment. We have clubs coming from 7 different schoolboys leagues. Too many potentially good young players are being destroyed at a young age due to so many coaches win at all cost and instant success philosophy. This philosophy does not encourage players to try things on the pitch hence a fear of doing the wrong thing on the pitch seriously diminishes young players confidence. Let them play, Let them try things, Let them make mistakes, Let them learn from mistakes. This weekend is an ideal scenario for coaches to bring teams to play in uncompetitive situations and play with the freedom that should be done at this age. To learn you first have to make mistakes.
Best of luck to Robin O’Day on his upcoming UEFA b licence course.
Congratulations to our vice chairman Shane Kelly and his wife on the birth of their baby girl.
Condolences: Sincere Sympathy to our Senior Player Alan O’Sullivan on his recent bereavement.
