Mini Soccer Red High 4G Pitches, Sunday October 2nd 2016
Not long to go until our juniors take to the field for the FIRST time in Ballynagross colours. There are a few important items to note before then.
For the first 5-6 weeks matches will be played at the following times:
U8 Boys & U10 Girls play at 11.30;
U10 Boys play at 12.30
Sundays will be match day from now on so last week’s training session was the last to take place on a Sunday. Training will be on Friday evening from now onwards, starting this Friday, September 30th, at the pitch from 6-7pm. We will continue to train outdoors as long as daylight and weather permit us before bringing the Friday evening training indoors. At training and on match days shin pads must be worn and water bottles are a must. We would also recommend that children bring a suitable coat.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT ALL FORMS ARE RETURNED ON FRIDAY NIGHT TO ENSURE ALL CHILDREN CAN PLAY ON SUNDAY.
