NW Elite Academy 2016

Training resumes for the Academy on Thursday 7th January 2016


Reviews – End of Year 2015 / Targets 2016

In January, all players signed at the Academy will receive a “end of year review 2015 / start of year target for 2016”.

The process will be that all players / parents will receive a text message asking for the following:

· Do you want review sent in the post
· Do you want a 10 minute appointment with your coach to receive review (date TBC)

Once I have received all responses the appointment days / times will be issued and letters will also be sent in post if picked this option.


Parents Meeting U8-10s (Academy) – Tuesday 12th January 7pm at Cardinal Heenan School (Canteen)

We are looking at doing a Tour in April for the above age groups and would like an opportunity to speak to all the parents on Tuesday evening.

The players are very welcome to come however I don’t want to say they have to attend as this puts added pressure on the parents.

You must attend in person as I would not like you to miss out if demands are high, (Limited Places) depending on others providing you with the information.

This is a great opportunity for all players and we at Elite are all very excited on the proposals we will be discussing on Tuesday.

Please make every effort to attend.
