A few updates for this week:
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to fill out the questionnaire already, and for those who have not yet done so, please do so a.s.a.p.
Download questionnaire HERE.
The reason we do this is to improve the quality of our academy—believe it or not, we do listen to what you have to say. Last year’s responses led to many of the adjustments that you have seen this year. Please spare the 10 minutes it takes to do it. I would greatly appreciate it.
Congratulations to our U17 boys for making the UFL Youth final by beating Socceroo on penalties on Saturday. They will now face Agila in the final, a repeat of last year’s final. Also congratulations to our U17 yellow girls who will play in the Plate final after beating LMS in their semi. They will play Nomads, who beat our own Kaya black team in the other semi.
Commiserations to our U9 yellow team after losing to a very strong Xavier team. Coach Alan’s team had a fantastic season, and their loss was their first of the season, having won 5 and drawn 2 in their previous matches. The final will be between MFS and Xavier, who were both in Kaya black group at the start of the tournament, proving that they were most certainly in the group of death! We wish the Xavier team the best of luck this Saturday who have a number of Kaya trainees in the line-up.
Elite: Monday (BGC, 4 p.m.) and Friday (Emperador, 4 p.m.). As stated in previous emails, players must continue to attend training. We had really good numbers on Saturday so please continue to train and develop your skills.
Academy: as per normal, Tuesdays and Thursdays at Cuenca and Wednesdays and Saturdays at BGC.
It was great to see many of the Alabang players come down to training on Saturday and we would like to see more of you come and join us on a consistent basis.
As some of you may have seen, I will be personally overseeing the Kindersoccer program as we aim to develop our youngest players. I am extremely passionate about working with kids of this age and it is important that we expose our young players to fun, exciting training as well as introducing sound technical instruction from the beginning of their football experience. I encourage you to continue to bring your children to these sessions and also encourage your school friends, relatives, etc. to come and join as you will see a vast improvement in our Kindersoccer players in the coming weeks and months and I am sure they will really enjoy it.
I think that is all for now. Have a great week and I will see you all out on the field!
