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.

Gr16 Girls Team off to Tasmania!
Our Gr16 Girls team is finishing the season by traveling to Launceston to play in a junior tournament from 23-25 Sept, where they will be competing with other girls teams from around Tasmania and beyond.
The girls have worked hard all season with fundraising events for the trip. They will be holding a final sausage sizzler at the junior presentations on 18 Sept from 11:30-12:30. Come on down for a good feed and support the girls.
We wish the Gr16 girls team all the best for their trip!

2016 Carnival - A Great Day!
With possible rain predicted it was decided on Saturday afternoon to go ahead with our 2016 Junior Carnival, held on Sunday 7 Aug.
It ended up being a great day weather wise and even better for around 1100 players and 130 teams who enjoyed an action packed day of football and fun. The carnival is all about the players and seeing smiles on their faces, and by all accounts this was achieved.
This year we had many teams from outside our zone including: Victoria Point, Robina, Burleigh Heads, Tweed Heads, Kingscliff, Murwillumbah & Maclean. Thanks to these teams for traveling all that way, we hope you enjoyed the day!
A huge thanks goes to all our wonderful volunteers who started the day very early and never stopped all day. And also to all those who helped behind the scenes putting in many hours to prepare for this big day.
And without all the teams who participated it wouldn't have been such a great day, thank you!
We would also like to thank our valued 2016 Carnival Sponsors:
- Clarence Property
- Alstonville Plaza
- LaFaro Accountants
