SECONDARY SIXES | We kicked off our brand-new Secondary Sixes league on Friday at Bracknell Town FC and we were delighted with the launch night.
Secondary Sixes is an idea we've been wanting to launch for some time, a 6 a side league that offers 12 - 16 year olds the chance to play in a competitive, enjoyable & non-pressure league with their friends. As well as our latest Let Me Play initiative, we want to offer more opportunities & projects to 12 - 16 year olds and we feel our Secondary Sixes is another exciting idea to help young players.
On Friday, we saw young players making decisions for themselves, we saw the captains arranging their starting line-up and subs throughout the game, we saw young players helping and encouraging their team mates when they were winning and/or losing, and we saw them getting on with the game they love with no pressure from anybody else. They are the main reasons why we feel Secondary Sixes is a very positive tool for young players development with the added bonus of enjoying the game with their friends after a tough week at school.
Attached to this post is the league table from week one - we would like to stress that teams can still enter our league after the launch night & their entry will be accepted so if you or your son / daughters team wants to enter our league then please get in touch with the team & we will aim to get back to you as soon as possible - email@example.com.
