Male Junior Football Update U13, U15, U17

While the 2020 football season was severely impacted by COVID-19, work is well underway to prepare for the upcoming 2021 season.

Family and parent support is critical to the success of the footy club, with many roles to fill across each age group and team. In 2021, we are aiming to have up to 3 teams in each of the U13/U15 and U17 age groups (based on the 2020 numbers and those moving up age groups)

The club and I would like to call for expressions of interest for the key roles required for each age group and team, if you are able to support in any way it would be greatly appreciated by both the club and the players.

Before I outline the roles that will are required to be filled, I am pleased to announce the Club has appointed Cameron Loftus as Director of Coaching across the U13/U15 and U17 age groups. Please see the message from Cameron Below.

“Its exciting to think that after missing a full year of football, the boys and girls of St.Marys Sporting club will be able to finally enjoy their training and playing with mates in 2021. Congratulations to all those volunteers who choose to take up the coaching challenge. I look forward to working with you all in a support role. If its training drills, some structure, ideas about warm ups or assisting with some game style there is support. We can work together to build a tool kit of ideas for us all to utilize and make each session enjoyable for you and the players. Looking forward to getting to know you all over a coffee and try and assist.” Cameron Loftus Director of Coaching.
