APRIL HOLIDAY DEVELOPMENT COURSE NOW TAKING REGISTRATIONS
We have a course in each week of the holidays for any enthusiastic players wanting to develop their game. Players will be exposed to the Academy style of training and working using unique coaching methodology.
JANUARY DEVELOPMENT COURSE A BIG SUCCESS
THANK YOU TO THE PLAYERS AND PARENTS INVOLVED IN THE JANUARY DEVELOPMENT COURSE AT GOWER PARK.
In a month where most are still on holiday and relaxing before returning to school, Melville United hosted a development course at Gower Park. This course was an opportunity for keen players to get some top coaching to help prepare them for another exciting season on the grass. First Team coach and OFC/NZF B Licence holder, Michael Mayne says “These courses are to offer players a different holiday training experience than those on offer in the region”. He adds “We see these as great opportunities for players, boys and girls, to come and receive coaching designed to cater to all abilities but allow them to come away with a top coaching experience. These courses are for keen players wanting to learn. We don’t want this to be a baby sitting service- everything we are doing is to lift the standard of coaching and playing in the region”.
Wilkinson, a UEFA A Licence coach says “The players showed great commitment during the programme and it was pleasing to see them take on the work we offered. Its an exciting time at the club we’re getting a great response from players and parents about the work we are doing”. Wilkinson adds “There is no doubt that the parents and players want better coaching and programmes available in the region, so every development course we run needs to have meaningful work. Our courses allow all players to improve their skill level and game understanding while still experiencing an enjoyable and fun environment”.
THE NEXT DEVELOPMENT COURSE IS SCHEDULED FOR THE ARPIL HOLIDAYS. MORE INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE LATE FEBRUARY IN THE DEVELOPMENT SECTION AT WWW.MELVILLEUNITED.CO.NZ/DEVELOPMENT
