SKILLS ACADEMY - TERM 2

The Kanwal Football Club 'Skills Academy' for Term 2 has been a great success with 20 of the 24 available spots having been filled.
We are fortunate to have had the services of Adam Kwasnik as our Academy Coordinator and Coach. As a former striker for the Central Coast Mariners, Adam recently retired from professional competition football and now holds the position of Community Football Coordinator with The Mariners.
Run over 10 weeks, the Academy participants have learnt about different topics of the game picking up specific skills as the program unfolded. A large amount of each session is based around repetition with participants having a ball constantly at their feet.
The players have an opportunity to put what they have learnt and practised over the session into a game situation between themselves. They thrive on this opportunity and love to have fun and express themselves in a game situation with what they have been learning.
At the end of every session the players revise the new skills they have learnt and the topic they have worked on. Again, the players are full of energy in answering questions and it is great to see and hear after 75 minutes just how much their minds absorb.
With the Term 2 Skills Academy coming to a close, Adam would like all parents to keep in mind;
"At the grassroots level, as long as your son or daughter is playing and training with a smile on their face, you parents are doing a fantastic job! Keeping them active and helping them interact with other children through the game of football is a credit to all parents.
Kanwal Football Club has a very long and proud history. I hope everyone involved with the club stays positive and helps them move forward in a positive direction with enjoyment and development of all registered players".
The age bracket focus for this Academy was U9-12's but in the near future (hopefully Term 1, 2015) we would like to offer another age bracket to being U5-8's.
