The new Small Sided Football (SSF) format for the Under 8s and Under 9s commenced in Round 1 and feedback from all of those involved was generally very positive. In particular the new zones helped keep the games free and open, and prevented the rolling pack of players that can be a feature of “Tackers” football in the past. This season, the U8s & U9s will play their home games at Glenferrie Oval.
The ground has been marked up with 2 SSF grounds, across the ground. Whilst council are not in a position to provide clubroom facilities just yet, the surface is in excellent condition, and the boys, parents and supporters certainly seem to enjoy the atmosphere that this “old” VFL ground provides. The committee is currently negotiating with a coffee cart provider, so we hope to have this in place for this weekends’ games.
