Roar Clinic - A Roaring Success!

Today Brisbane Roar came to Alstonville to hold a junior clinic. They brought their inflatable field which proved very popular with the youngsters.

Even the parents had a fabulous time as they watched on to non-stop football fun.

Thanks to all who attended and thanks to Brisbane Roar for a great day of football!

What is Winning?

(By Steve Watson, youth coach)

Maybe it's time to redefine "winning".

- Winning to me is to have everyone still playing at U12 that started at U6.
- Winning is giving the children a passion for the game they can enjoy for life.
- Winning is challenging every player to achieve realistic goals based on the child's individual abilities.
- Winning is always being a positive role model.

Think of the difference the child sees in coaches who want their kids to have fun versus those coaches screaming at the players, the ref and each other across the field.

Soccer can be enjoyed at all ages. Let's not drive the next Mia Hamm or David Beckham from soccer at U7 because of our misguided concept of winning.

Also see a great article about "WINNING vs DEVELOPMENT" here and a very interesting survey about what kids themselves value in sport.

Brisbane Roar in Alstonville!

Attention Alstonville FC Junior Players

We have managed to secure a Clinic to be conducted by Brisbane Roar at Geoff Watt Oval for Alstonville FC players as follows:


Date: Fri 8 July, 2016
Time: 3:00pm to 5:00pm (ages 5-10)
Time: 5:30pm to 7:30pm (ages 11-15)
Cost: $35.00
Rego: Refer to flyer for details, the process is handled directly by Brisbane Roar


Spots are limited to 70 per session, register early to avoid disappointment!

We believe this will be an enjoyable event to help improve the skills of the Alstonville FC players as well as a path to creating closer ties with Brisbane Roar.

Silent Saturday

This Saturday is SILENT SATURDAY for all MiniRoos football.

This is where ALL parents and spectators are asked to WATCH the game but refrain from making any comments to the players or about the game.

Clapping IS allowed and supporters are encouraged to be creative in how they choose to cheer their child's team (Eg make signs to hold up, bring a scarf in the team's colour and wave it wildly) but AVOID calling out loudly. This may be hard for some of us but the idea is to give kids the chance to just play by themselves.

Thanks for everyone's support of this concept this weekend!

Ref Appreciation Weekend

This weekend (24-26 June) is Referee Appreciation weekend. Without referees we wouldn't have a game so this is a great chance to say 'THANKS' to your referee.

Lack of respect shown all too often from players, supporters and coaches towards match officials, is one of the MAIN reasons cited by match officials who decide to “walk away” from contributing in that role.

A simple “thanks” to match officials is a relatively easy gesture that can make a big difference to retaining match officials in our game. Also why not get creative and bake a cake for your referee or give three cheers to them at the end of the game. Just something to show your appreciation.


Trivia Night a BIG Success!

Keeper Sessions
(Next Session: 25 July 2016)

This year we are continuing our special training sessions for keepers who are extra keen to improve. Matt Baker has generously offered to run these sessions once again.

The sessions will now be run WEEKLY at CP 5:30-6:30PM (Gr10-12) and 6:30-7:30 (Gr13-16). If Crawford Park is closed due to wet weather then the sessions will be cancelled for that week. The keeper sessions are open to junior players from Gr10-16. There is no charge for these sessions. Details for the sessions are as follows:

Goal Keeper Sessions Details

These are for those aspiring to be goal keepers or for experienced goal keepers wanting to refine their skills. Matt Baker, who will be running these sessions, is a Premier level keeper. Last year we had lots of reports of improved performance as a result of coming to these sessions. Players will greatly benefit from this training so please come along.

New Playground at GW

We have been invited by Alstonville Scouts to join in a first aid training night called "What to do before the ambulance arrives".

We ask all of our coaches and managers to please consider attending this night aswell as anyone else interested. This is a fantastic opportunity in our home town not to be missed.

Villa Sweeper - May 2016 Newsletter

The May edition of our newsletter is now available online. Click here to download.

Please make sure you have a read as it contains important info for everyone!


Womens Premiers field Youthful Team

Our Womens Premier team is already a young looking team this year but in their clash with Italo Stars on the weekend, with many players out, they brought in three Gr16 girls to help make up the numbers.

All three put in solid performances with Olivia Kerry and Emily Wiltshire holding out the Stars at the back and Mia Casagrande threatening up front many times and coming away with one goal.

The final score was 4-0 to Villa and was a sign of good things to come at Villa with lots of depth in womens and girls football and with our experienced players willing to mentor the young ones.

The photo below shows an attacking play by Villa. Well done girls!


Three Teams in Anzac Cup/Callan McMillan Finals

This year we had three teams in the finals of the Anzac Cup and Callan McMillan pre-season competitions.

This is a great result for the club so well done to these teams! A special congratulations to our Gr16 boys team who came away with a great win in the final (photo below).

Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers this year who keep out club going! Make sure you give them a pat on the back for all their efforts. Have a great season everyone.

2016 Junior Grading Completed

All junior competitive teams (Gr12-16) are now formed and ready to go for the season. Players and coaches have been notified of their teams and training is underway.

A big thank you to all graders who helped over the three weeks of grading and musters! It's often hard to find helpers for this task so early in the season but it's a credit to our valued volunteers to have so many willing to help.

Some junior teams will start games on the weekend of 1-3 April and others on 29-30 April. Check the FFNC draw regularly as it should be ready soon.

We hope all our teams have enjoyable season with a focus on player development and fun!

2016 Girls Stanthorpe Trip

Last Sunday Villa took two girls teams (Gr13/14 and Gr15/16) on a bus trip to Balandean to play some friendly games against the Stanthorpe Football girls. This is becoming a tradition as the Stanthorpe girls traveled down to Alstonville last year.

The girls had a great time on the bus trip which included a Trivia Challenge to be completed over the day. Zoe McInnes was the eventual winner of this comp and took home a new Nike soccer ball!

We were welcomed with great hospitality at Balandean with a free lunch and friendly club members and players. After a few short speeches to welcome us the games got under way.

The teams proved to be evenly matched throughout the day. Each team played two games with the Gr13/14 team (coached by Pommy Dave) ending up with two draws. The Gr15/16 team (coached by Todd McInnes) ended up with one win and one loss.

Before departing at the end of the day, Stanthorpe Football had a brief presentation to thank us for visiting and to hand over some samples from the local wineries! It was a great day with the games being played in a great spirit and we met lots a great people. Thank you Stanthorpe Football!

We arrived home about 8:30pm and all agreed it was a wonderful day. Hopefully this can become a yearly tradition with our friends at Stanthorpe Football.
