The Macquarie United Football Clubs , 9 Cubs were formed as a six year old side 201 . now they are set to take part in the under 10 year format of small sided football. The team has essentially stayed the same with the exception of one player who left to try basketball last year but is set to return to play with one of the Macquarie United Football Clubs other teams , the Straycats. The club plays in the Bathurst Association from April through to the beginning of september and while they are remarkable in our eyes being parents , something very childlike about their respect to myself as the coach is endearing. Last year , I wrote as a contributor to the National Football Plan for Football Federation of Australia to demonstrate to the kids you should always be prepared to put back into the sport no matter
Value to the Community
The team and myself have suggested to the sports governors the merit of a Pass-it Forward with football goodwill project and Striker School concept , they are trying to continue to try and get funding support for a range of initiatives to assist football. We have tried to find businesses to advertise on perimeter fencing at the home of Football in Bathurst . We have been successfull in securing 2 Samba Collapsible goals that we use for training a couple of teams and show school P& F committees. We have suggested the idea of Supa Skills development program for our community to Bathurst Regional Council and the governors at Football Federation of australia . We try and always help if we can where the kids parents will work in the canteen but we do behave ourselves and support our coach with his desire to help the sport in Australia .
Why the funds are needed
The team has identified the need to place coaching DVDS that have to be sourced from www.soccertutor.com or www.worldsoccershop.com in the club house to show teachers, parents and other coaches as well as players new skills . to build local resources to share with our opposition and all schools In Bathurst region. We would also like to purchase some footballs from www.footballnsw.com.au (online shop ) and if we can show the community our values , we may get them to help some where else and together the football phenomenon grows with vigor. If you have a look at www.prosportsgroup.com.au you will see specialist football equipment that is outside the budget for the the programs and its our efforts to pursue other funding from www.holdenhomegroundadvanatge is another place we look for support. The kids will grow and develop and more importantly be part of the change in the football insociety that we hope will shape towns and community.
