2015 U13 & U14 Coaches Appointed & the Gold Coast Cup

THREE U13 & 14 COACHES APPOINTED  (more announcements to follow)

It’s looking good for our U13 and 14 players in 2015. Three coaches have been appointed and there is an opportunity to for players to participate in the Gold Coast Cup in October 2015.

Our U13 and 14 teams next year will continue to have a development focus with experienced and (youthful) coaches now taking on coaching roles. The three coaches will act as a team and under the guidance of our Head Coach Ken Morton. These coaches have all been heavily involved with junior and youth coaching and understand the needs of our younger players. As a Club we are excited to have them on board. We know many parents and players will be pleased too.

U13 Trip to Borneo Football Cup "Priceless"

Got to love the mud. Thank goodness for the laundry lady!

Our U13 boys team are back after a highly successful time at the Borneo Football Cup held in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Borneo, Malaysia. Organised by former Socceroo Scott Ollerenshaw the BFC was a well-run tournament with a high end flavour. Assistant Socceroos Coach Ante Milicic was the tournament guest speaker. He certainly inspired both our coach Max Clarke and our team!

Week 2 of our Holiday Clinics start today!

The second week of our fun filled football clinics commence today! We play in the rain and we train in the rain so these clinics will go ahead rain or shine.

We will have our SHFC tents up for shelter, but it might be an idea to bring a spare set of clothes just in case there is rain, although according to the weather forecast it wont be much.

An email was sent out yesterday with all the details to those that have booked. If you haven't received it, please check your junk/spam folder in case it went there. Remember to bring your Clinic Consent & Medical form prefilled to speed up registration.

Women in Football (off the pitch)

There are plenty of football websites online these day that regularly post articles about all things football—both on the pitch and off. One such website is called Leopold Method, which publishes opinion pieces on subjects such as Features, Analysis, Coaching, Business and History.

Last weekend feature writer Joe Gorman was in Hobart to watch our PS4 NPL Elimination Final against South Melbourne FC. While he was here Joe interviewed the women behind our Club, as he was very interested in writing about a club that was almost entirely run by women.

Joe's article "Those women" who run South Hobart FC was published today.

At South Hobart FC we are strongly supportive of any initiatives to better develop football at all levels in Australia. We don't see this as about women verses men, but rather getting the best qualified people into decision making positions to achieve strategic goals—of which some happen to be women.

Make sure you have a read. It is certainly food for thought.
