We asked our grade convenors to put together some highlights – This is what we received
Warning Some of the facts and figures don’t completely align with the principles of WOF So please don’t take them home or use them in any, way, shape or form that could be construed as competitive But, seriously:
PDP Grade 8; 66 players Grade 7; 75 players Grade 6; 55 players During the hours of 8.30 – 11.30 am on a Saturday the team trained 196 players In-house programme at Karori Park Every 3rd week it was festival week
Sonic Sixers (PDP) • Starting the season having never played a game of football, our Grade 6 kids can now dribble, pass, shoot, tackle, trick and turn. It’s been great to watch as players learn to make use of space, pass to team mates (although only after they realise they are part of a team!) and even beat other players with a deft step over!
Super Sevens and 8th Grade (PDP) • Grades 7 and 8 picked up where they left off last season, adding clever tactical thinking, formidable teamwork and athletic prowess to their already impressive range of skills and tricks - Barcelona watch out! Our teams - from the Lions to the Gazelles and the Jaguars - had the chance to strut their stuff against and along side other Karori teams each week, in preparation for Festival Week - our opportunity to test ourselves against other clubs
Overheard during Festival Week • Another team, having just scored were celebrating that they were ‘actually beating a Karori team’ • It’s great to see our teams set the benchmark for talent, skill and ability!
9th Grade • Grade Nine had 7 teams play the season with a total of 63 players • All up the teams won 38% of their games and lost 44%. Our top performing team was the Fire in the top division that won 25 of its 36 games and was unbeaten in July and August. • Whilst teams from other clubs moved up and down the divisions; our teams stayed in the place they started
Probably the best statistic • is that in the second half of the season our teams collectively did twice as well as they did in the first half. Of the seven teams only one did less well in the second half - so clearly as they trained and played together they were actually getting better - BRILLIANT!
Thanking • Teams across the grade had expert help and on behalf of all the parents we'd like to thank Tayo, Conor, Jamie and Binney whose patience and understanding always out did all of ours. • Also of course I'd like to thank my lead coaches for our ungraded teams - Richard, Phil, Peter, David and Andrew. • For our graded teams parent support was always strong with parents taking on all kind of rolls including coaching, refereeing, bag carrying, videoing, photographer and a whole lot else beside - thank you to you all, you know who you are and why you are important.
our biggest thanks go to • Greg Kerr • who has brought us as a Grade all the way to this point and whose constant enthusiasm to take it further is going to be sorely missed – • Greg there is still time to change your mind - we don't care that you've bought a house in Tauranga! • Greg we will carry on.... See you in Manchester - Greg knows what this means......
"Wham", "bam", "boof"... • That’s the sound of Grade 10 balls flying into the nets • 371 times this season!! • Plenty of action from 8 teams. Coaches to be celebrated are Paul Madigan, Tayo, Chris Sperring, Martin Foye, David Carrigan, Hanno Schupp, John Grimwood, William Knight and Mike Williams. Thanks to all their assistants and managers also. • 2 teams in the travel league, Bertos and Reid, and had good results from them. Great commitment from the team members and their parents. • Looking forward to next season and moving up to 7 aside.

Ken’s comments • The trials brought 6 new kids up from lower division teams into our top 2 teams. • Our coaches have been breeding new blood every season for our elite teams. • Our coach pool has picked up one new coach who brought life to the Galaxy with the cry off pass passpass from the sideline. Their team goal was to string passes together during the game not just score and it worked. • Our top 11th grade team qualified for the Travelling League A section and held their own during the season in an extremely competitive environment. • MANY THANKS to the coaches of G11 who have been supporting our club and kid’s for a few years’ now. • It makes the life of a coordinator easy when the coaches don’t cause you any trouble!
