I apologise that the call had to be made to cancel your game. Thanks very much. (The tennis game/set did not conclude till 11.05am not helpful.) Thanks also to Lightning Bolt and Awesome Angels 9's, last game outside.

'Fun at all costs' should be the motto


News date: 2013-02-20
Category: Game

Author: Suzanne Drummond
With the focus on cheating and corruption in sport at the moment, underpinned by a 'winning at all costs' attitude, it just shows how important it is for us as parents, coaches and teachers to be good role models and emphasize positive values in junior sport such as fairness, good sportsmanship, and above all, a focus on fun!

The following story sums it up from a kid's perspective: Maddie is five. Her dad signed her up for her first ever mountain bike race. It was a single dirt track, one kilometre long. The race had all the trimmings a starting gun, marshals and a finish line. Maddie tackled the course with gusto, got a prize for finishing and then rode the track four more times, just for fun. When asked later if she won, Maddie replied: "I dunno".

The new school year has begun and children all over the country are first-timers at come-and-try days and after-school sport. How do we ensure that every child's first experience of organised sport is a good one? What role do coaches play? What are the keys to junior sport success?

We all know sport is great for kids. It helps develop gross motor skills, keeps them healthy, promotes cooperative play, encourages teamwork and good sportsmanship. Children who participate in organised sport can make new friends, build self-esteem and develop a sense of fair play. But kids don't care about any of that - to them sport is one thing: fun!

So what are the keys for clubs who want to offer all that and more to the youngest of their junior members? Here's the must-do list:

Focus on fun

Fun is the number one motivator for young children in sport and in life.
Forget winning and focus on fun. If they're having fun you can teach them just about anything.
Help them to develop broad physical skills like balance, agility and coordination.
Incorporate some sport-specific activities, but only if they're fun and they maximise participation.
Plan a variety of activities to keep them engaged and give them plenty of time to learn new skills.
Don't talk too much! Children are much better at doing than listening. Keep instructions short and simple.

Be fair and inclusive

Give everyone a go, regardless of their skill level or ability. The key is participation.
Be a role model. By displaying a sense of fair play, you are teaching them the same valuable lesson.
Modify activities and games to make sure you are catering to everyone.
Be supportive; praise them for the things they do well.
Give all children your time and attention, not just the most talented ones.

Make it safe

We may think they are made of rubber but young children do hurt themselves and others when playing sport. Not only are they less coordinated and have slower reaction times than adults, they are less capable of assessing risk, so may unknowingly take risks that result in injury.
Use proper equipment and safety gear that is the correct size and fits well.
Make sure all equipment is properly maintained.
Ensure playing fields and tracks are in good condition so kids are less likely to fall or trip.
Avoid over-use injuries by ensuring that coaching programs are appropriate for the age, maturity and skill level of the athletes.
Match children with activities according to their age, size, skill level, physical and emotional maturity.
Include supervised warm-up and cool-down periods and make sure they drink plenty of fluids.
Make sure only qualified personnel attend to injuries.

Set boundaries

Every child who takes part in sport must be able to do so in a fun and safe environment, protected from physical, sexual and emotional abuse. Coaches should:
maintain appropriate physical boundaries
stay in control and don't lose your temper
avoid transporting athletes and make sure parents are clear about collecting their children
have clear guidelines for photographing children.

Players please do not train, prior to game, on hockey/soccer ground out front of the stadium. The sand on the soccer court comes onto the courts and has a negative effect.

After challenging first 2 tournaments of the year, 13(1)s came back strong at the Diamond Creek tournament on 25 March to play in their first grand final. We then backed this up making it through to the grand final at the Blaze tournament on 22 April.

At the Diamond Creek tournament we had a fantastic semi final match against the top side Banyule. Having lost to them earlier in the day by 11 goals we turned that around to win by 3. At the Blaze tournament the semi was against Diamond Creek Force and we had a great 3 goal win also having lost to them earlier in the day.

Our semi final games at both tournaments against tough opposition were outstanding. We worked so hard in the semi finals that we just ran out legs in the grand finals ending up runners up on both occasions.

Well done team

At the Banyule tournament on the 21st August, the PV Comets 13&U Team 1 squad played 9 games during the fixtured rounds winning 8 of them. Eventually playing off in the grand final against this team, Banyule. The GF game was a great display of netball from both teams, with breaks and break backs to finish with a DRAW after a shot on goal rolled around the ring twice and popped out denying PV Comets Victory. The teams took the court for yet another two 3 minutes halves. It was played in similar vain as previously done, but this time PV Comets found themselve one goal ahead with Banyule denied the equaliser while in their attack end. Great game by all participants, well done Banyule for professionally running yet another tournament.

Adolescents attend one-to-one 60 minute sessions with the Health Coach and with a supporting parent being present over 9 weeks.

    Well done to No Xcuses which won the U15 grand final against Dolphins.
    Well done to Xtreme which won the 13&U grand final against The Roxys in a thriller. The game was a draw at full time, the teams then played to halves of 5 minutes. It looked like another draw was on the cards with a goal for goal play (and possibly a first 3 goals to be played), but Xtreme scored for a thrilling win.

    Good luck to all the Representative sides at the Banyule tournament on Sunday (4th june).

    Congratulations to Andrew for being picked in the U17s Mens Netball Team.

    We all wish him well at the PVNA in this next elite stage of Netball competition!

    Andrew started playing netball with Merrilyn at thomastown. A junior at the age of 8-9 years old and then got into one of Merrilyns teams: dolphin jades. He remained with this team until jades had to break up as there was no competition for the under 17s. Andrew then joined urban panthers and played with them for 2 years, till last year.

    He stills trains with Merrilyn on thursdays and continues to play on wednesday nights at RMIT in mixed netball.

    Andrew has also competed in many tournaments over the years the last one being craigiburn last year. Urban panthers came runners up against craigiburns A team.

    Andrew has tried out for the mens netball team twice and succeeded the second time in securing a spot in the under 17s. this year the mens netball nationals will be held in sydney over easter(april) (Andrew is turning 16 in march.).

    There will be fundraising to help him get to sydney and/or any donations will be greatly appreciated. fundraising will be the main focus so as much support will be greatly appreciated.

    The games all ran smoothly and the umpires did a great job of umpire each game. Great to see a huge turnout for the Netters program, which ran after the Under 17, Under15, Under13 and Under 11 matches that ran from 9:00am till 12:30.
