Re: Is your son/daughter trialling for Sapsasa?

So what's the middle ground then? Parents get criticised because they are reluctant to bring their kids out to training a couple of times a week and then others are criticised for taking their kids out for too much training. What's the answer? Your question is a complex one to answer. Some kids wil...

Re: Is your son/daughter trialling for Sapsasa?

Its about categorising, and putting whats important to your child in order In no particular order, they may have this in a week ........ Club / 2-3 trainings + game Stic / 1-2 trainings? School / 1 training? + game SAPSASA / 1-2 trainings? That is ALOT of trainings in a week, and if continued for a...

Re: Is your son/daughter trialling for Sapsasa?

There's so many programs. At least SAPSASA is supported by the education department. Sure there are some great players that play SAPSASA but nine times out of ten, if they're good they already play in a decent team. What bothers me are the others pedlars that suggest things may happen of you join th...

Re: smashing teams in juniors

JSL should not be in cup and if anything have their own. There are a lot of good JSL teams that can more than hold their own against all but the top JPL teams especially at the younger age groups. Para Hill under 12 JSL team got to final of cup last year beating some stong JPL teams (Raiders and Bi...

Re: smashing teams in juniors

Fact is, those kids that will play at a higher level are more competitive than those that won't, and being on the wrong end of a belting only drives them harder. The ones that want to give up after getting thumped were never going to play sport at any level anyway. Kids should be trained to show no...

Re: smashing teams in juniors

My sons first season as a goalkeeper saw him let in 4-10 goals per game (U9's). He never gave up. I think he's one of the top 6 in his age group now, certainly toughened him up in goals and made him work. I'm pretty sure if his team were ever up by that much, he wouldn't want them to stop.

Re: smashing teams in juniors

maybe by a margin of 5 goals which I think is a safe figure and then maybe set your team a target of completing a certain amount of passes before shooting or swapping the teams forwards in defence.And no not affiliated to any team who has been thumped. I can't speak for all coaches but for sure the...

Crowds at ACL games

Ulsan vs Brisbane doesn't seem to be drawing a lot of interest. A few other games have had very poor crowds. Wouldn't think it would be a good financial decision for the clubs.

I guess the only way we'll know whether Skillaroos works is whether these players go on with it in years to come.

The media knows what sells it papers and sells ad space on TV. Although a lot of these people that run these organisations will enjoy AFL it comes down to who pays their bills.
