Below are links to some informative short videos that will give coaches, players and parents a very good visual display of the new FAI Player Development Plans for the younger age groups from under 6 to under 12. Everyone involved with under age teams should take a look and familiarise themselves with the changes.
As part of the new FAI Player Development Plan, there are no match scores or league tables being recorded for non-competitive games (U11 and under). These games are all about player development and allowing the young players express themselves on the football pitch without being concerned about scorelines and league positions. Other clubs, may show results etc. but as a club, Newport Town AFC will not be displaying any results etc. on our Facebook page or club website.
A link to the FAI’s Player Development Plan is here.
Newport Town A.F.C. will hold its registration night next Monday 17th from 4pm to 8pm in Derryleigh Park. Registration fees for this year are €60 for the first child and €40 thereafter. All the coaches are looking forward to the 2015/16 season.
Regards, NTAFC Committee
