FOOTY IS BACK and so is a NEW Junior Development Manager and U19 Coach for Keilor Park.
Keilor Park Football Club have officially appointed our first ever Junior Development Manager, Matt Wilson, who will be working closely with junior players and coaches to ensure everyone has an opportunity to reach their potential. Matt’s background started with 300 games for Keilor Park FC, EDFL representative football and stints with the Western Jets. His coaching journey has involved coaching at both Senior and Junior levels and recently working with AFL Tasmania Development Squads before returning home to Victoria last year.
Those who have played U17’s for the last 2 years will all know Matt (Blocka) very well, and he will be assisted by Marcus Barclay, who is also an experienced senior EDFL/Western league coach and 300 game Keilor Park player who will be supporting Matt as the U19’s specialist coach. Matt has already developed a challenging 6 week pre-christmas training program for all U17 and U19 players,
We have 42 players who have played over the last 2 years for KP that are eligible for U17 or U19’s next year. Looking through the list, it’s pretty impressive, so let’s all get down to our information/pizza night on Wednesday 31st October at 6:00pm in the KP Sports Club room and meet Matt, Marcus, learn about the pre-season training program, registration packages/discounts, EDFL Rep & Calder/Western Jets mentoring opportunities, but more importantly some fun and pizza.
Wed 31st Oct @ 6:00pm – U17 & U19 Pizza and Information Night
