Under 13 Extension Programme Module 2

Under 13 Extension Programme Module 2

Following a successful delivery of Module One of our Under 13 Extension Programme, we are excited to confirm details and open registrations for Module Two of this programme. Module Two will be delivered during September, incorporating weekly training sessions focusing on skill and tactical development, and will conclude with a Regional Festival event which will include games against teams from Mid Canterbury and South Canterbury. Participants will be exposed to high level coaching throughout the programme, and we are hopeful that the Regional Festival will be a fun and memorable event for all.

Module Two will see participants predominantly split between Year 7 and Year 8, with players placed in teams made up of other players within their year group of similar ability. The Year 7 festival will be a 7-a-side event, whereas Year 8 will be an 11-a-side event.
