Week 2 of our Games Tournament saw the gradual improvement of the skills on display. A very warm afternoon in Singapore, so congratulations to the kids for attending and applying themselves as well as they did. Another timely reminder to bring sunscreen, water and mouthguards.

Please note the change of location for this week’s games to Turf City, details are below.

Years 4/5 – Damian Davies

A reasonable turnout of around 18 players for the week.  Not quite enough to split into three teams, so we went with Tiger Sharks (Whites) against the Great White Sharks (Greens).  The format was a single game of 12 minute quarters, so a great opportunity to have a good run.  The Great White Sharks got off to a good start but a strong second half saw the Tiger Sharks run out winners 11.7 73 to 5.3 33.  Many great skills shown by both sides, from precision passing to smooth transitions going one end of the field to the other. 
We have started awarding votes each game for the end of season medal.  Inaugural votes were as follows: 3- Jamie (Tigers) 2 – Jacob N (Tigers) 1- Fletcher (Great Whites)

Special thanks again to the Dad’s that helped out with umpiring and coaching.  More the merrier!!

Year 6+ - Dave Walden

Last Saturday round 2 of the round robin was played. A turnout of just enough for 3 teams saw 3 games played. Unlike the last week the results were not as close and some bigger margins were witnessed. (please turn up if you can as your team mates need you)

Umpire Snow said he would let the game flow and this helped make for some good contested football and great tackling. It’s great as a coach to see the players enjoying the contest so much and taking the game on.

Another highlight was the vision used. There was plenty of sharp handballing to a player in better position setting up end to end play and goals. Cheggers would have been proud; I can remember him drilling in the V zone to pass off to a team mate in a better position from last year.

Well done boys there was some great passages of play to watch and your football skills seem to be improving each week!!

2014 AUDO CUP FAMILY DAY

This Saturday at Turf City will be the annual Sharks vs Wombats local derby for the Audo Cup. The SSFC are looking to retain the trophy once again this year. The game will commence at 1.30pm at Turf City right near the golf driving range and we would be grateful for all players to be at the ground for 1pm.

The day will be a family day with a bouncy castle and fun for the entire family.

At the conclusion of the Sharks v Wombats game, we will hold the weekly round robin Grade 4/5 and Grade 6 match in a revised format. Please come early to support the dads followed by your game for 1.30pm.

HK visit to play the Sharks

After a great season of playing against international teams from Bali and visiting Bangkok, we have the opportunity to host the Hong Kong Dragons AFL team for an Auskick carnival on the 30th August at the AIS school. The day will commence at approximately 1pm with games played in the following age groups:

  • Under 8's - must be 8 years or under on 31st Dec 2014
  • Under 10's - must be 10 years or under on 31st Dec 2014
  • Under 12 - must be 12 years or under on 31st Dec 2014

The Dragons will be entering at least one team per age group and we would like to enter two per age group.  For those that have been on our tours previously this is a wonderful opportunity for the kids to play competitive AFL footy against other international teams. 

More details will follow as they come to hand, however in order to secure your child's place on a team please RSVP your child's name and DOB to: sharksfc@ais.com.sg by 16th August.
