Friday Night Under Lights Training – This Friday 27th May   

First time training will be under lights at AIS Shark Park. We will be mixing it up a little for this Friday training session, with some short/sharp drills and then straight into games so join us for a bit of ‘kicking the Egg Ball around’  – all ages welcome.  Please arrive at 6:30pm for a 7pm start.

Some points to note:
·         All ages welcome including preppies and U6.  Please excuse us for being flexible on the night as far as timing as we will dynamically shift depending on numbers.
·         First hour or so will be in small groups focusing on the younger ages and then we will open the oval up (depending on numbers) for the older ages after the younger players have had a chance to enjoy playing footy under the lights.
·         Coaches are very kindly requested to help out as per normal.
Please note there will be no BBQ in operation. Please bring drinks and snacks (including for the mums and dads!). Please also note that there will be NO training on Saturday 28th.

From the Oval 

What a fantastic and huge success Saturday was for our Singapore Sharks v Hong Kong Dragons Carnival. With 29 individual games of football and over 300 hundred minutes of football played it was no wonder we were all exhausted. I cannot possibly thank the coaches and parents enough for all of their help and assistance on Saturday. From coaching, to umpiring, to photographing, to cheering on the sidelines, it was an immense effort and it again showed what a great club the Singapore Sharks is. I was so thankful that there was no lightning on Saturday. With 3pm storms a regular occurrence at the momen,  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous! There was some outstanding football from both teams throughout the day. Congratulations to all Auskickers who took part and thank you to Hong Kong for making the effort to come out to Singapore and put on such a great competition.

Games Results

U7’s – With a few oversights from the previous interclub competition, Coach Cutho stepped in to assist with the distribution of three even teams.  We put together three Sharks teams and Hong Kong brought one team. Each team played each other once at Sharks Park Junior Oval and Hong Kong was a fast, skillful and fearless team. They went through the day undefeated and played against an All Stars Shark team in the grand final. The game was played in great spirits although there was a controversial tackle that is currently being reviewed by the MRP. Hopefully no sanctions are to follow! Thank you to Coach Remon, Cutho, Glenn and Simon for all of their hard work.  

U9’s –Our Under 9’s kicked off the day playing in two separate pools on two different ovals. Both pools consisted of three Sharks teams and one Hong Kong Team. As a gesture of goodwill, Hong Kong was awarded a place in the grand final for making the journey across the South China Sea. Two Sharks teams finished on top of the pool matches with Coach Zdun again claiming the minor premiership with Coach Jez and Robbo, who were the other winners from Pool B. All three coaches combined to create another All Stars Sharks team to play HK. Hong Kong continued their rampage and in a flurry of goals that left the Sharks licking their wounds and leaving the run home too late. Well done to all players for gruelling two hours in the heat.

U11’s – Pressure was mounting on the U11 coaches of Thommo, Woolley and Edwards. Coach Thommo went in as firm favorites after his win in the interclub matches while Woolley took the reins ever so calmly. Fresh off his Level 1 accreditation, SuperCoach Edwards was quietly confident going about priming his team to go through the draw undefeated. With HK no match for the U11’s, they played off for 3rd and 4th against again a much-too-strong Sharks outfit. It was a great day of football and a real highlight in the quality of these matches. We showed great strength, team orientation and skills. Congratulations!

12+’s – Another great hit out entailed in the 12+’s. A solid four quarters of football took its toll on all playing but again showed our endurance and ability to play whilst fatigued. The banter began early in the week  between the coaches and Coach Talbs trumped Coach Davies by turning up with a very fancy whiteboard with working magnets. The organization and dossiers seemed to pay off as Coach Talbs won the tightly battled game. Some fabulous individual efforts showed in the 12’s but the team that implemented their game plan more effectively were able to run over the top. More practice next week of basics such as switching and looking backwards to go forwards. A great day was had by all!

From the Gym

Last Saturday was the Hong Kong Carnival Day for the players outside but for the players in the Big Gym, we concentrated on some skills with more game time! The U6’s took part in their own friendly competition of modified AFL and the U5’s did it their way, just a bit differently, with station work focusing on some obstacles and combining varying skills together to achieve a common goal. The U6’s played 6-a-side on the basketball courts, trying to apply the rule of possession football – if it’s in your hands, it’s your ball to kick or handball without interference. There was a fantastic level of skill on display and it’s great to see the players implementing the skills they have been learning throughout the year in a game situation. This was the third time that they’ve been able to do this and it’s something that they’re starting to get the hang of. The U5’s applied the skills of bouncing, kicking, handballing, marking and spatial movement together to achieve an outcome, mainly through a target of some sort. Again, the players are demonstrating improved skill as they continue to combine gross and fundamental motor skills together.  Hope to see some of our younger Sharkies out on the field for a bit of ball kicking this Friday night from 6.30pm

Calling for Volunteers for Habitat for Humanity 

H4H ran the Sharks BBQ last Saturday during the Hong Kong Carnival day – through our Sharks communities and all our supporters generosity they raised an amazing $4,200 on the day.  A note from H4H -  “Just wanted to once again say a huge thank you to you and the committee from Sharks AFL for giving us the opportunity to fundraise on Saturday.  Our grand total for the day was a whopping $4,204.60!  Incredible.  Just unbelievably generous of all of you for giving us the opportunity and for the greater AFL community, including the HK Dragons, for supporting us so kindly with their donations.  This gives us 75% of one house build as each build is $5,500.  H4Hs goal is to take 2 teams across to Batam and do two house builds.  Our locked in dates for this year are 18/19 August. If anyone is interested in joining us in Batam for the build we take a total of 20 people - Mums and/or Dads are all welcome. Please contact Debbie via email debbie.talbot@me.com
