Training Schedule – March to April 2018

Hi Everyone,

Here is updated information around ground availability and training times for IBU Junior teams leading up to season start on April 7.

Be aware that demand for training time on turf is still high so please take advantage of the bottom grass fields being available to use from next week.

There are over 50 Junior IBU teams again this season with the majority wanting to train on a Thursday after 5pm – this can create some chaos so please be mindful around space and time. We are encouraging teams to train Tuesdays and/or start as early as possible – there is  more room and creates less pressure at the other end. Alternatively you may choose to arrange your own training venue.

13th and 14th Grades

Please take into account that we are keen for the 13th and 14th Grade teams (including GOSL) to have access to the turf between 6-6.30pm if required – These are older players with squads of up to 16 who play full pitch and large goals – being constrained to a small area for a full practice is not ideal. Keep this in mind when planning your sessions – talk to these teams on the day if extra time or space is required to complete your session.

Gear

We understand that teams may not have their gear yet so please ask if cones, bibs or balls are required (all players should bring their own ball if possible)

Coaching and Development

Martin and Leo will be available again for one off coaching sessions in terms 2 & 3 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5.30pm – 6,30pm. These sessions are extremely beneficial for first time coaches or for teams transitioning to larger fields – contact your grade coordinator to book a session for your team.

A new timetable from the start of May to end of August will be communicated next week – this will include some allocated times for certain grades.
