NFA  HOST FNSW COACH ED UPDATE

Date Published 30Jul14 1340

A small but enthusiastic group of coaches headed to Cook Park St Marys to see FNSW Coach Education Manager Oscar Gonzales and NFA Football Manager James Rankine conduct a combined Skill Training and Game Training update on Monday 28th July.

Coaches were shown how a training session should look within the framework of the FFA’s National Curriculum and were able to see how the theory is turned into a practical setting. James praised those in attendance for their spirited discussion on the night and their contribution to a deeper understanding of these principles and encouraged the coaches to continue to implement the new strategies with theor teams.

more information on upcoming courses will be released soon and for pictures on the night check the NFA Facebook page.

Date Published 16Jul14  21:30pm

Whether you’re new to semi finals & finals season or an old hand, it’s always worthwhile brushing up on how we manage our semi finals and finals in the Nepean Football Assoc.  We also had a slight change introduced following last season, so do yourself a favour and CLICK HERE to view the document distributed to clubs at the start of this season so you’ll understand how things work.

In the next few weeks, we’ll post more information about our Finals Day, which will be held at Jamison Park on 23 & 24 August.

Finally, we need all results to come in before we can post Semi Final Fixtures for 8 team competitions, which start their semi final competitions on 26th July.  The fixtures are unlikely to be posted before Wednesday 23rd July.  Please don’t phone to ask when you can expect the fixtures, we’re working almost around the clock & thanks in advance for your patience while we attend to this.  As soon as they’re released, we’ll let clubs know and we’ll post it on our Facebook page, so if you haven’t “Liked” our page yet, you can do so by going to www.facebook.com.au/NepeanFA

SPECIAL NEEDS?  

Published 20Jan14

Nepean DragonsNepean Soccer Dragons (Special needs football group) is a sub-committee of the Nepean Football Association established in 2007 to provide opportunities for children and young people (and the young at heart), with special needs, to play football in a non-stressful environment, where participants can learn new skills, be part of a team and make new friends.  Parents and carers of players also enjoy a supportive, safe & friendly environment. 

Our special needs program is adjusted for players who cannot participate in a mainstream team because they have a physical or intellectual disability.

Every Saturday morning we meet at jamison Park to practise skills and then have a fun game to finish off the morning's activities.  Throughout the season we visit other special needs groups in other districts and we also host gala days with other groups.  Our group also takes part in the Football For All Gala Day (non compulsory).

Registration Dates will be 1st & 8th February 2014 from 10.30am to 1.30pm at the pavillion near field 9, Jamison Park, Penrith.  For more information on registration costs or if you require extra information, please contact Sharon on 0438 742 534 or email  or visit our webpage at www.nepeansoccer.com.au/dragons.
