The Queen's Park FC Foundation Newsletter
Hi folks! At the Foundation we hope that everyone has a had a fun and entertaining Summer and is as excited as we are that the football season has began. We have listened to your feedback and will be looking to put out a frequent newsletter detailing everything that is happening within the Foundation and our fantastic community teams.
Home on the Horizon
Nethercraigs Sports Complex has kindly given the Foundation access to use the training facilities for all of our community teams. We hope that this helps ease travel/transport difficulties some parents may have had with our previous training structure, held across multiple venues.
Over the Summer our coaches have been hard at work developing a new training programme which will see the introduction of Street Football and Futsal, providing more positive and engaging individual development opportunities.
- My Club Hub has been implemented – providing a one-stop shop for all of our programmes.
- Developing our training regime also includes coaches, having regular coaches’ in-services and in-house CPD (Continuous Professional Development) sessions to see what works most effectively and how we can keep improving players and coaches development.
Many of our teams have seen some great success during the beginning of the season and at the Foundation we believe that the efforts of all involved should be shared and celebrated. Our Girls U14 squad got off to a flying start winning there first match and then going on the following week to secure their first 3 points!
An excellent job from all the players and from David, Mark, Rachael, and Lauren!
Communication is Key!
PLO meetings will be held more frequently throughout the year.
The introduction of player feedback evenings held twice year (summer and winter), providing feedback on youngsters’ development and progress from their respective coaches.
TOTW posts have been introduced on our media channels, providing more frequent updates on development of all squads.
Player Celebration Evening
We are aiming to host our highly anticipated player celebration evening, towards the end of the year.
Preliminary dates are looking at the month of December, upon further consultation we will assess the specific date and duly notify all parties.
We would like to announce that the Foundation has hired Chris Priestley in the position of General Manager, and would like to say a few words about his appointment.
I am delighted to join the Queens Park FC Foundation as their new general manager. The foundation has a vital role in serving its community and I look forward to its continuing development as a centre for sport, social action, and lifelong learning.
Thank you to all the players, coaches, volunteers, friends, family members, and other supporters that have already given so much to community football. I look forward to sharing in your successes in the years to come.
