Merrimac Football Club Junior Program is a football experience that offers competitive community football for both Boys and Girls from U12's to U14's. 

 

Our junior teams provide the opportunity for your children to play football in a competitive and social atmosphere. We strive to ensure that the culture within the Club promotes the Game of Football for the enjoyment of all participants.  Our objective is to provide an environment that will see our junior players flourish as they progress their development towards Youth and Senior Football.

WHAT WE FOCUS ON

At this age group, players should be highly technically and tactically competent and have developed an in-depth understanding of different roles and responsibilities that are suitable for the different positions on the pitch. Players should continue to develop a deep understanding of different tactical systems, and how they can be used to overcome the questions that are asked by the opposition in games.

Players further their sense of competitiveness and look to develop a winning mentality when it comes to competitive matches. This means the focus for our players becomes "creating a performance to win the game" whereby players must work individually and as a team to solve problems on the pitch in order to try and win the game, while also looking to perform in the way they have been taught.
