Happy New Year to all.
AUFA are committed to providing quality football sessions to all of South Ayrshire. A big part of this is our Community Football Centres that cater for all children up to Primary 7. We deliver sessions all across South Ayrshire and have hundreds of children taking part every week. We believe that the young people benefit greatly from participating – improved fitness, mental health, social skills and football skills. So we would like even more young people to come along and benefit from our sessions.
Part of this new look Community Programme will be a set ‘curriculum’ that will see every centre focussing on the same Skill each week. For example, this week’s sessions are all going to be on the important skill of Passing. Ayr United first team captain, Ross Docherty, had this to say ‘Passing is probably the most important skill that a footballer can have. Good passing keeps the ball away from the opposition and gives you the opportunity to score goals. Developing the basics of passing at a young age is so important and will give you the foundation to really develop as a player. So get along to the AUFA sessions and get started on developing this very important skill!
The full curriculum will be posted shortly so keep checking our website and social media.
A ‘Star Player’ award will be handed out each week – this will be decided by the coaches who will be looking at hard work, improvement or just sheer class! Keep an eye on our website for more info about this.
An ‘attendance’ reward scheme will also be introduced with kids receiving Ayr United match tickets for attending a certain amount of sessions – again, more info to follow.
