Sarahawks Under 9 Season Opener v Terrigal

What a great start to the season. In training we talked about communication, in particular loud calls whilst hand balling. Getting high tech we even used a video to demonstrate how tackle.

With memories of the strength of Terrigal in 2015, some of the kids were feeling 1st game jitters. Rod kept them focused with instilling the " have a little faith" mantra.

The reaction by the team was fantastic. Everyone stepped up and made it an awesome game. Every-time they had the ball Sarahawks called for the for the ball and hand balled extremely well.

Special mention to Archie, who at one point had 3 to 4 people trying to pin him down but he just walked over them like walk in the park. The player of the week was Macka. Macka’s focus attacking the ball and not stopping for 4 quarters was exciting.

Four of the boys played up as well. Big thanks to Lochlan, Ben , Macca and JJ. This is what the club spirit is all about. Well done boys.

Great start to 2016, now we need to step up the training tempo. Rod was impressed!
