We have had a great start to our 2019/2020 Under 6’s campaign, with 25 – 30 kids down each Sunday morning @ 10. The majority of the kids are new to Suttonians but their enthusiasm has seen them improve their basic skills week on week.
The coaching team that has come together have demonstrated equal enthusiasm and put in place a session each week that keeps the kids engaged while building on the foundations of passing, catching, evasion and teamwork. The focus is very much on enjoyment (with no contact) at this age.
If anyone has any questions or wants to get involved you can contact Alan on 087-6460764.
The U7’s skills progression took huge steps forward this season. Each week we’ve had 18 – 20 players come for training and we focused on 3 areas attacking, defending and most importantly having fun. We worked hard on passing, looking for space, running forward and supporting the player with the ball. For defending where we focused on line defence across the pitch and tagging with 2 hands.
Throughout the year we competed in 7 blitzes. I’m proud to say Suttonians came away with an overall winning record. This is where we saw the real improvements and progression come through from all players. From our first blitz in October in Suttonians to our final blitzes in Clontarf and Old Belvo, the transformation by the teams has been amazing.
We are all looking forward to the new season next year, where we will start tackling!
