U10 boys grading gala day - UPDATED

posted 9 Mar 2017, 18:32 by Avoca FC   [ updated 9 Mar 2017, 22:59 ]

Hi Parents and Players

You will have noticed on the Avoca FC web page that Kariong doesn't have enough teams for us to trial against. Hence, I have decided to hold a U10 gala day at Pluim Park. This will serve the dual purpose of allowing all the boys to all have a game, and for us to observe them play a full game for final grading purposes.

We have been forced into a venue change and the games will now be held at Central Coast Grammar between 10:30 and 12 noon. Games will be on the synthetic pitch so just wear joggers or indoor soccer shoes as regular outdoor boots with studs will be inappropriate. Kick off will be at 1030 sharp so please be there in time to park and get over to the field ready to play.

 Wear your Avoca strip if you have one, otherwise any strip will do. The boys will play in the coloured bibs we had at grading.

 If you are prepared to Coach or Manage a team please come see one of our team and let them know.

posted 21 Feb 2017, 19:09 by Avoca FC   [ updated 21 Feb 2017, 19:10 ]

If you turn up with studs you will have to take them off to participate. Shin pads are recommended but not compulsory.

The grading will go ahead rain hail or shine and the teams will be posted to the website soon after.

Start times are
  • U10    9:30 am to 11am

Do not train at Patrick Croke (or any other Council owned field)

posted 21 Feb 2017, 18:53 by Avoca FC   [ updated 21 Feb 2017, 19:01 ]

Unfortunately, Patrick Croke is not available for training yet for Avoca FC. Teams (not necessarily Avoca teams) have been training there and parking all over the footpath and a resident has contacted us to let us know he has called the Council Ranger. If any Avoca team is fined for training there, the team will be required to pay the fine. There is also the possibility that Avoca FC will lose the use of Patrick Croke in the future. This will be a gigantic problem as it's our major training ground during the season and there is nowhere else to train. Please do not train at Patrick Croke (or any other Council owned field) until we are officially given permission.


Primal Performance free football clinic open day

posted 15 Feb 2017, 22:02 by Avoca FC   [ updated 15 Feb 2017, 22:02 ]

We would also like to let you know about an exciting opportunity being offered to our U9 to U12 players by one of our senior players Stefan Marcangelo. This is a great chance to build up your skills before the football season starts. However please note that these training sessions are separate from and additional to any training sessions set by the club or individual team coaches.

Stefan is reaching out to all U9-U12 junior Sharkies to announce that Primal Performance will be running a free football clinic open day, at Kincumber Indoor Sports Centre. The hope is, that if enough junior players come along on the day that they will run 6 week clinics weekly after school. The players will be coached by Stefan, a certified FFA Coach and will be based on the FFA curriculum. Players will be split into 2 time slots, U9-U10 and U11-U12 and they will all be working on building a solid foundation of technical skill. This skill foundation if missed is very difficult to make up later on. The area they will be working on is called the Skill Acquisition Phase. This consists of first touch, 1 v 1, running with the ball and striking the ball.

Where: Kincumber Indoor Sports, 19 Cochrone St, Kincumber NSW 2251

When: Tuesday 28th February (U9-U10 3.45-4.30pm and U11-U12 4.45-5.30pm)

FFA Senior & Youth Coach
Level 1 Strength & Conditioning Coach
Over 10 year’s fitness industry experience
