Blue Rovers Pre-Season Skill Training sessions

Pre-Season skills training sessions will be held in February 2021 by Blue Rovers Junior Football Club in conjunction with the Ricki Herbert Football Academy.  These sessions offer additional support for all players turning 8 to 12 years of age and are a good precursor to the start of the season in respect of dusting off those existing skills and working on some new ones.

All players, all abilities, boys & girls are welcome in age bands 8 - 12 years of age. Players will be working within their own age bands during sessions aiming to develop key skills in an enjoyable environment that encourages player development as well as a structured programme aligned with New Zealand Football.

These sessions are being run by the Ricki Herbert Football Academy in conjunction with Blue Rovers JFC and are good precursor to the start of the season in respect of working on those skills required to get you back on the field performing to the best of your natural ability.

Players will be working within their own age bands during the sessions in a structured yet enjoyable environment that encourages player development.

Please note - in the past the Club has been able to obtain funding which meant a much subsidized rate per player.  However this year the funding was not available meaning that as a club we are now passing on the direct costs of this programme per player to those who wish to come along and take advantage of this great opportunity. 

We would also like to raise awareness that Fast Football (5 a side) is on offer in Term 1 of 2021 and this can be a more cost effective option for some families.  See separate tab for Fast Football under Registrations.  Please note - registration is for Teams - not individuals.  You can have a family team or a lot of schools offer teams also.

Please ensure your child has shin pads, boots and water bottle each time they come along to these sessions and that they arrive 5-10 minutes beforehand so they have time to check in before session start time.

This year – NZ Football in conjunction with WaiBop Football Association have announced that all Federation teams will be mixed gender teams meaning that girls are welcome to come to the Skills training sessions but also to trial for Federation teams if they wish to play in this more competitive environment.
