U10-U18 Grading Update

U10 to U18 grading for 2024 is well under way, and we have had some adjustments to the schedule.

The last session for U10 and U11 on Saturday, 9/3/2024, has been moved to Friday evening, 8/3/3024, still at Giralang. This is to allow families to take advantage of the long weekend. U10 will be at 5:30 pm and U11 will be at 6:45 pm. The second U10/U11 sessions will still be this Saturday morning, 2/3/2024.

There is also an update for goalkeepers. We now have two sessions set for goalkeeper grading for all age groups:

Foundation of Football Coaching Course

Capital Football is running a Foundation of Football Coaching Course on Saturday 2nd of March from 9 am to 5 pm at Hawker Synthetic.

The course primarily targets children aged 5 to 11, but the course is tailored to beginners and novices, making it suitable for coaches of older teams with limited experience.
