To all clubs – this has been sent to all U14 players who trialled last year for 2017 rep. Please forward to any other club members you may have that are the correct age group and interested.
Dear Junior Player and Parent,
You are invited to an opportunity to help develop your hockey skills. The Ciriello Coaching academy is offering their services to our association for 15 boys and 15 girls who are 13 years and under to participate in 6 three hour coaching sessions over 3 weekends in February and March before the hockey season commences. This includes goal keepers. Please attached flyers for enrolment and information on what skills will be taught.
Before you think that this may be too expensive, please consider the following – in order for your child to be able to have access to this sort of quality coaching they would normally have to travel to Melbourne or Canberra to attend a skills development clinic or academy which would cost you not only the cost for the clinic but you would also be up for fuel and accommodation which would be well over $1,200 for the same 6 sessions. There is a family discount offer if you have more than one child enrolled. please inquire with Lou before paying and he will give you the discounted price and can arrange for a payment plan if you wish.
Lou and his team of coaches will work with your child to learn correct techniques of the basics, plus higher level skills and game awareness through drills and game based play. The last 2 sessions will involve games against another team to put together everything you have learnt over the previous sessions. Lou, Bobby, Ben and Chris have a passion to develop regional players to be the best they can be.
We will also be offering Coaches the opportunity to upskill and learn how to improve their own coaching techniques. Your Club will be advised on how they can access this offer.
Don’t delay contact Ciriello coaching and get your name down.
