September Managers Meeting

Courses

Level 1

We are hosting two Level 1 Coaching Courses at Nicholas Breakspear over the coming months, the first is in October and the second in February.

The Herts FA are taking bookings for the courses now, however this is via a dedicated club link until the 22nd September after which anyone will be able to book a place (if there are any available).

Anyone from the club who would like to book a place please give me your details and I will send you the booking link.

Linesman Workshop

The joint Lineman’s workshop we are holding in tandem with Harvesters at Nicholas Breakspear on 11th September is full, the last of the 24 places went over the last few days.

I will be looking to get a second date for another workshop with Phil Sharp in the next month or so, anyone interested should give me their details.

Safeguarding

Just another reminder please check that your Safeguarding certification is up to date, if not then please put it right. To check go to the Herts FA website and log into Members Services with your FAN Number.

Remember:

1. The individual stops any involvement as a coach until he has a valid DBS

2. If you have a parent who wishes to get more involved and wishes to help out then before the start they must have a DBS Check

For any of the above contact Ian or Mervyn to start the DBS process.

Online Player Registration System

The new online system for Club Player Registration is live and going well with 660 players registered and paid up. The link to access has been sent out several times but it is also available from the manager’s tab on the website. Thanks to Neil Sweeney.

Please note several teams have still to register a single player on the system, you know who you are but we will be sending out chasers in the next week or so. In addition we have a list of players who have been registered but have not paid the registration fee, the total amount is over £4,000 owed.

Coerver

The First Coerver Partner Club Coach Education Clinic for City Youth FC will take place at Nicholas Breakspear on Wednesday 6th September from 18:00 - 20:30. All managers are invited to attend.

Summer Coaching Camp Success

This Summers City Youth Coaching Camp, held at Highfield Park was one of the best attended in the history of this special event. The camp, held over three weeks, saw total numbers hit in excess of 900, some children even attended every day of the three-week camp. Special thanks must go to Sam, Chris and Julius and to all the St Albans City Youth Coaches for making these camps a continued success. The City Youth coaches who help run the event are a product of the City Youth Young Coaches programme which has produced hundreds of qualified Level 1 Coaches over the past 10 years.

The next coaching camp will be over the October Half Term from 23rd to 27th October, this time at Nicholas Breakspear School on the Astro.

The new Seasons Kit and Equipment Requirements - Just to reiterate

Equipment

But to confirm all equipment orders must come through Mervyn, they are then being managed by Minerva, when your orders are available you will be notified at which point you will need to collect from Minerva. Please collect them quickly as we do not want to clog up Minerva’s available space (they are doing us a favour).

Sponsorship and Kit

We have had over a dozen new sponsors during the summer, well done to everyone involved. Information on Sponsorship options is available to download from the website.

If you have a Sponsor please wait until the sponsor has paid the money to the club before approaching Louise to order the new kit. We have had a couple of occasions this season when this was not the case.

All kit orders are being handled by Louise Shepherd, Louise can be contacted via email on louise.shepherd@cityyouthfc.com

Additional Coaching Support

We did say this at the start of last season but I am taking this opportunity to reiterate it again in readiness for this season. Several teams ask if they can have coaching support from our young coaches, where possible we will accommodate these requests. However please remember if there are any costs involved it is the teams who should be paying the coaches for example if you are paying a young coach £10 to coach at your training session then the cost is paid by the team (parents normally have a whip round) .

The reason for raising this is that several teams (last season) said they were not aware of these rules and the club has ended up paying these costs every month. This will not be the case this season.

Highfield Park

Last year we had a few issues at Highfield Park during the season, these ranged from lights left on in the Pavilion, the Pavilion being left unlocked, Gate left unlocked and rubbish left on the fields (Water bottles etc). This season can we ensure that we switch off, lock up and pick up, basically leave the place as we would like to find it.

In addition, over the Summer lots of work has been carried out at Highfield, reseeding, fertilising, vertidrain and coming up shortly sanding on Pitch 11. This has cost a lot of money hence look after Highfield.
