Trivia Night – save the date!
Our much-loved trivia night is BACK – Saturday July 17 at Turramurra High from 7pm. The trivia night is always a fantastic social outing, with BYO food and drinks, a hotly contested quiz, raffle and more. Mark the date in your diary and stay tuned for details.
Walking Football is coming to Kisso, and you’re invited. Big thanks to Rhondda Shaw for getting the program up and walking. To express interest, email Rhondda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Walking Football is a non-contact, low-impact game, suitable for men and women of any age. Matches are played with modified formats (eg 6 v 6) on a small pitch, with a shortened game time. There is no running allowed, and the ball can’t be kicked above head height. The focus is on the social aspect of the game – we guarantee there will be either coffees or beers afterwards. More detail via this one minute video.
NEW online store
It’s easy to order your Kisso kit. Check out the new online store for jackets, hoodies, socks, shorts, beanies, caps and more. Just head to the website.
June long weekend
All players have matches on the long weekend (12 and 13 June). Please tell your manager if you will be away.
Miniroos and juniors – there are NO MATCHES for you on the middle weekend of the school holidays (3 and 4 July). Seniors (18+) have fixtures that weekend. Please check the dates page of the website for all important dates and an overview of the season.
Check out the video Football Australia made at Auluba, highlighting our volunteers! Thanks to everyone who answered our call-out for volunteers. We still need of a VP for our Mens All Age teams – please email Jeremy Tucker if this sounds like you.
Our sincere condolences to the friends and family of past player Garry Mackay (aka “Kiwi”) who passed away recently from cancer.
Let them play
A reminder that miniroos football is all about getting kids into the game in a fun, enjoyable way. Support and encourage your kids in the same way you would want for yourself. Please watch this video on the topic. And an excellent, short video for coaches here.
Rotation of Players
It is important in the younger ages (up to 14) that all players have a go in all the different positions. Pigeon-holing players at a foundation age level is the wrong approach to take. The benefits of rotation include:
. Increased awareness, understanding & empathy
. Advanced skill development
. Ability to adopt different mindsets from an early age
Please rotate players across all positions throughout the season. The scores are quickly forgotten by the kids. There are apps that can assist with managing positions and time on field and one that we recommend is Subtime.
