SUFA Is Now Officially Closed
The whole journey was a blast and I am sad that it has come to an end. Many factors, including health and age eventually took their toll. I still believe very strongly in a "Development" model, over a "Competition" model. One is much more friendly and effective the the other.
It was gratifying that so many parents felt the same way. I encourage you to tell your children just to get out and play with their friends. Not only is it fun, it is the BEST way to develop skills, thinking, all without pressure!
Parents & Children
I wish everyone who has been involved with SUFA for the past 7 years, all the best and hope that the children continue in their soccer experience. Soccer is about: FUN - Learning - Building Confidence. Wins are quickly forgotten, but memories last a long time.
Thank you to all of the coaches, for an outstanding effort. There was no glory, few trips and few teams. You demonstrated a commitment to player development and improving the lives of children. A very noble endeavour for sure. You have my immense gratitude!
Regards - Bill Howe
If anyone wishes to assess options for development, or training options, please contact me below. I will endeavour to answer your questions ASAP.
If you have any feedback, please provide that too. I am working on a new approach to learning in sport (developing a model). Your input would be valuable to the process.
