    Our club got a SAP licence. We don't have juniors within the club.

    Our first trial attracted 2 kids.

    We advertised and I personally visited 15 primary schools to drop off flyers the week prior to our second trial (fresh in the mind).

    Our second trial attracted 9 kids.

    I begged NNSW Football for help in approaching other clubs and emailing every under 8 kid from the season before. They have the database to do this. The result was that our licence was revoked.

    There are similar stories at other Premier clubs.

    I am sure that there are dozens of kids out there that missed out with their club that we could have helped improve but they never got to trial with us.

    We will apply again this year and do all we can to recruit.

    If any of you know kids that might be interested PM me. If your club has a SAP squad but good kids that aren't in it but are good enough, PM me. Advance the kids, don't hang on to them.

    NNSW could essfully email every under 8 kid with every SAP trial date so a larger catchment is informed.

    Nice to see Robbie Slater teeing off at Schwab and the PFA on Twitter about the obscene amount of money the Socceroos are getting

    In Norway at the moment and made it my goal to visit this pitch.
    When I got there, at maybe 3:30 in the afternoon the place was packed. They’ve got goals all along the side, artificial pitch, anybody can use it. Their little island would be home to no more than 500.
    Yet, they have this facility which would put a lot of our suburban fields to shame.
    Waited til people left and took my drone up.

    Fantastic that they can have that

    Compare that with NNSW

    2 artificial pitches and a handful of 5 a side fields which are closed to the public for free useage and just a cash cow for Northern to fund their entourage of staff


    So exactly why have none of the NNSW NPL clubs gone for the artificial pitches
    Sydney NPL it pretty much 90% have them

    Akso why have Northern not went cap in hgand to givernmemt again to replicate thge LMRFF somewhere else whether that be Newy Maitland Taree Coffs Harbour etc??

    again, this new program has the kids playing on 1st grade grounds all across the Hunter. They play all their games (except one venue)on carpet surfaces. Magic Park, Edden oval, the Jets facility out at Lakes.
    Again, not sure if previous years its been done like that but it was a big selling point, and the one time they have to play on the shitty ground you can tell the differnce it makes in their football.

    Top quality grounds are such an important part, and my word one of those venues up the valley should be a priority, as well as a 2nd one closer to the centre of Newy (district park tennis courts, part of the National Park area perhaps?).

    This pitch was open to everyone. Could drive right up to the field and probably around it, onto it even.
    It’s in pristine condition.
    Not sure if they could do something like that in Newcastle without it being destroyed by people. Would obviously need to be fenced off and controlled.

    But yes. I know there’s questions about the quality of artificial pitches and the effects on the body.
    But yes, I agree. It would be great if Macquarie, Newcastle and Hunter Valley all had one facility.


    When I played, our club hired a top class surface for training once a week. And even the quality of training on such a good surface was so much better.

    Idk.
    Seem like this SAP is a good step forward.
    Are these only NPL clubs with SAP licenses??

    So serious question

    Why do these coaching courses cost the individual money and why are they not free from the FFA??

    After all if you want people to essentially volunteer their time and expertise to teach plkayers skills tactics technique etc to make them better footballers

    Why do the FFA see educatinbg coaches as a profit motive business rather than a free education system to educate the football public??

    I think beginner coaching should 100% be free. Parents educating young players is paramount and I seem to remember my junior club offering free coaching clinic day for the parents that wanted to coach. That was ages ago.

    I guess, devils advocate, they charge because their course allows people to make money.
    Same premise if university costing money. Same reason doctors pay thousands to attend conferences that help them treat patients better.

    I’d be interested so see pricing structure for courses though..

    Go one better

    It should be 100% free at all levels

    It is just the passing on of knowledge about the game

    They aint providing anything that is top secret or patented


    The more education we can get into people is only going to help us immensely

    To limit the supply of this knowledge to make profit is negligence and criminal

    I have been asking NNSW to do the same thing to help make sure the girls who are passionate about their football find their way to the WPL 14's and 17's - but no luck after 3 years of trying....

    Our club has a development program for girls U/9's this year.

    Not sure if it was part of the same FFA boys program or if its club specific but there's def clubs out there trying to get the girls firing..
