Re: SAP ?

I think scouting talent can be done better .....its all about which club and coaches have alignments with the current FFSA coaches.

Re: Adelaide City sack junior coach

The first generation to come through the small sided mini roos curriculum are now turning 16/17 years old......

Id like to see the FFSA and FFA focus on training centres for u/6's- u/11's and leave 12-16's to clubs.

Re: Age group in 2 year gaps JPL/JSL

Ikon I agree with your first 2 paragraphs. The issue is for the 4 good players that could plausibly play in the jpl but for whatever reasons don’t get to or aren’t quite there yet. Those 4 kids try to carry the jsl team but lose faith when they are playing with a bunch of kids who are of a lower st...

Re: Age group in 2 year gaps JPL/JSL

very good topic, Ive seen JSL teams being used in a variety of ways- At my club a couple of years back we used it a development team in a u/14JSL league but the whole team was eligible for u/13's- It allowed us to develop 13's in a JPLB league and 13's in a u/14JSL league and seemed to work ok.

Re: Cup round.....

The cup draw is simply luck of the draw.

you certainly don't coach juniors for the money..........most coaches I know get some gear , perhaps their kids fees waived( if they have any), perhaps a course paid for or subsidised and maybe some phone $$....2k is way off the mark. for 5K i would be expecting quite a few sessions to be conducted ...
