BCFC Junior Gladiators U6 - U7
Our Junior Gladiators program is unique to our club as (unlike at most clubs where its run by parents) our sessions are designed and run by qualified, paid coaches who have assistance from parents. Training sessions will be led by Head Coach Tom Kenny (FFA C License), who will work alongside other qualified coaches and our NPL players during the season. Tom has developed an age-appropriate curriculum focused on the core skills of football: first touch, 1v1, running with the ball and striking the ball. The sessions will be conducted in a safe and enjoyable environment delivered with an emphasis of fun for the children. There is as much focus on life skills for the children such as socializing with other children, respect for coaches and each other, discipline and awareness as there is on the actual football. Of course, everything at this age must have the core value of enjoyment and ultimately we aim to educate our children in this culture which we call the “Brisbane City way”. Further our coaches are monitored during the sessions on their performance and are constantly involved with their own professional development.
For 2019 our season will incorporate 2 coaching sessions per week, Tuesday and Thursday and a Saturday game day, starting from Tuesday 5th February all the way to Saturday 26th October. These sessions will run from 4:30-5:30pm. Players should attend at least one session and The other will not be compulsory but we recommend it for the development of the players. Training will take place at our main stadium at BCFC. Game day will be on Saturdays with kick off at 8:15 or 9 am each week. The games will be 2 x 20-minute halves played under the FFA Miniroos rules. All Games will take place at our Mark Street training complex (adjacent to BCFC) and will be played within our own in house competition. Saturday’s games will be refereed by our SAP assistants who most of the children know from this seasons programs.
