SKI Academy Football vs. ICCS Friendly:
SKI Academy Football Season Concludes:
It has been a short but action packed football season this term! Thank you for all your support over the course of the past three months and I hope to see EVERYONE out for our football parent-teacher-player challenge in January. There will be more details to come, but for the newbies we get together after the season concludes to award certificates, have a BBQ, play a match against their parents and teachers, and reward the students for their hard work, diligence, and fair play.
We had a new young team in the Primary School with only four returning players, but there was great development and love for the game! Please encourage your children to join GOALS or another football training club in order to practice year round. It works!
We were lucky to be invited out to play Under 14 this year and after a few hiccups, we found it to be both exciting and great training for our players. We look forward to expanding such tournaments in the future. Once again, thanks for your support!
Well done SKI!
