Kanga Under 8 and 9 Home League

General overview:

To develop 8 and 9 year olds enjoyment, skill and understanding of the game the Club has introduced an in house competition for 8 and 9 year olds. This is in line with many European models of soccer development The matches will generally be scheduled on Sundays . The players will be placed into teams. We will endeavour to keep friends together as much as possible. A 20 to 24 week training programme is planned, with a minimum 1 hour training session mid-week. Training will be Wednesdays from 4.30-6.00 pm at Wauhop Park.

This gives the following player advantages:

  • Maximum playing time
  • Maximum number of ball touches
  • Increased ball skill development
  • Confidence with tackling

Other advantages include:

  • Games are easier to control and stop lopsided results
  • Encourage parents involvement
  • No travelling between clubs is required
