Minis & Juniors Skills Acquisition Program – Super League

2 years ago, Posted on


During the first week of winter and on a bitterly cold Tuesday evening, our Minis and Junior players were treated to the first in a series of skills acquisition evenings from our Super League squad.

More than 70 Minis kicked off the evening rotating through multiple stations and drills, showcasing their skills and being taught new ones from the super league players that manned each station. The enthusiasm and excitement from our Minis was heart-warming.

Head Super League Coach, Nick Cesarone, then led 50 of our Juniors through their customised session. Some special skills were on display by the Juniors, acknowledged through shouts of admiration from Nick and Mitz, the First-Grade Captain. Techniques were refined, taught and knowledge passed on from seasoned Super League players.

The last drill of the evening included a penalty shoot-out competition for the whole squad, which was won by unanimous decision by young Ari Kum, the superstar from the Under 10 Yellow team.

Congratulations to our Super League players and to coaches, Nick Cesarone and Sam Willoughby as well as our Minis coordinator, Mick Reynolds and Juniors coordinator, Michele Cairns for helping to organise the event.

Can’t wait for the next one.

See all the photos from the evening on our Photos Page
