Thanks to all our participants, coaches, staff, officials, volunteers, parents and all the PG Dome staff for their support. Our second annual World Cup competition was a success with registration increasing 60% from year one, teams and players from surrounding regions joining us for the weekend, and Marinos Papageorgopoulos (WFC) for flying in to watch the competition. Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next event.
Our pilot Physical Literacy Soccer program started in the 2018/19 Indoor season and has grown into a core part of our development model. Having just completed our second Indoor season in March 2020, the response exceeded our expectations with all training blocks being over capacity.
Working with our youngest participants and their parents has been very rewarding and we have enjoyed every minute. Teaching soccer and movement fundamentals to music, while adding components that continuously challenge each youngster cognitively, we saw immense growth throughout the winter. Separated into 18 min of fundamental movement exercises, 18 minutes of soccer movement related exercises and 15-18 minutes of free-time, the smiles and cheers from our youngsters builds an energy filled enjoyable environment.
Thanks to everyone that participated. We can't wait to see you again.
