Skills Improvement Program (SIP) 2016

The Menai Hawks Football Club will again be running its Development Program this season for the players in the 6 to 9 year age groups.

The SIP is open to ALL players in EVERY grade of these age groups and will be run over 5 weeks. It is designed to introduce players to the more technical aspects of the game, with a focus on intensity and skills improvement.

Development Squad Objectives

The Objective and Focus of the Development Squad Sessions is to develop players’ skill level in the 6-9 year age groups to their full potential, by providing short, high intensity training sessions focusing on individual skills.

A special focus will be on technical skills including but not limited to - ball mastery/touch, passing, movement, 1v1, striking and decision making.

Development Squad Expectations

There is no agreed “size” of the Menai Hawks Development Squad – this will be determined by the amount of acceptances

Demonstration of potential and desire to develop as a player will be a big focus

Players must commit to attend all sessions

Cost $60 = each player receives a training shirt, ball and the specialised training sessions
Starts – Saturday June 4th to Saturday July 2nd and will be run by the Clubs’ Technical Director Enzo Sansone.

Venues Casuarina Oval and Times
Under 6 and 7 Start 1.45 pm to 2.45 pm
Under 8 and 9 Start 2.45 pm to 3.45 pm

Menai Hawks looking for Club Referees

Menai Hawks provides club referees for all home games in the U06 to U11 age category (Miniroos) at both Buckle Reserve and Casuarina Oval. We also provide club referees for home games in older age groups when there is no SSFRA ‘black and white’ referee appointed to the game. The club pays all referees for officiating games across all age levels.

Typically our club referees officiate the U06-U07 age groups in their first year of refereeing and progress to older age groups as they gain experience. Club referees have to be turning 13 or older during the 2016 season.

We still have a few spots available for club referees for this season

Full training and support is provided

If you would like to join our growing ranks of club referees please confirm your interest by contacting us with your name and which Menai Hawks team you play for.

Michael Moore Bar

Last Sunday our club played a proud tribute to one of our clubs longstanding and still most active members Michael Moore with the official dedication of the ‘Michael Moore Bar’ Michael along with many other roles in the club held the most important role of Licensee from many years till his recent retirement from the bar service. Michael has entertained football royalty on many an occasion at our bar and most of the sports major issues (Australia wide) have been solved right there on the stools. So if you’re at Buckle on a Sunday and feel like knocking the top of a frothy chop or a sip on a girly drink come on up and with some luck our Michael will be there to say g’day and give you a run down on all our teams results for the round and an accurate critique on the ref’s performance to boot.
