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

Junior Carnival - This SUNDAY!

The Villa FC Junior Carnival is on this Sunday (7th August). It will surely be another fantastic day full of fun for the kids!

It would be greatly appreciated if Villa FC families/teams can do the following:

1. Take note of their roster, whether it be set up or canteen, and turn up to lend a hand; Roster will be published in the next few days.

2. Please DO NOT PARK at Geoff Watt. This year we have a significant number of travelling teams (well outside the area) so please be courteous and park a short distance away.

3. Please bring a cake or slice for sale at the cake stand.

Thank you for your help and see you soon!

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!

Keep our Referees!
Brisbane Roar in Alstonville!

Attention Alstonville FC Junior Players

Date: Fri 8 July, 2016
Time: 3:00pm to 5:00pm (ages 5-10)
Time: 5:30pm to 7:30pm (ages 11-15)

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.

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!
