In coming weeks I will be at competitions personally selecting and identifying talented players in preparation for selections into Vic Country rep. sides for National Futsal Championships in January 2014, Sydney.
Please advise if you have players you would like me to specifically watch. This process will take a few weeks to watch all teams thoroughly.
With selections almost finalized for the National SCHOOL Futsal Titles in September, I am making a very big effort to try and put in place the coaches for both programs as soon as possible and have them announced, players selected and squads organised in good time so our preparations are strong going into both competitions.
Attached is a document outlining the difference of School and Club pathways so everyone understands and please ask questions if you have any more.
Any players I notice in competitions the next few weeks I will also invite along to the Academy which is going very well currently and will add to any players development.
In the past week I have been speaking with some influential people about starting a scholarship program in Ballarat for kids aged 15-19 yrs who can gain a tertiary qualification from the Academy and more news will be coming soon on that pathway.
As you are well aware, we are working tirelessly to upgrade opportunities in the centre and we hope that you pass on all details to your team members where possible.
Thanks again and see you around in the next few weeks.
