Message from the BFA regarding International Race Weekend Activity in and around the National Sports Centre and BFA Field on Saturday, January 18th

 

Please be advised with the start of children’s football on Saturday, it is also the International 10K Road Race, which finishes on the main field at the National Sports Center. We have been advised that all entrances to the stadium will be through the Roberts Avenue gate only. We are asking all of you to take precautions and use all North West roads i.e. Palmetto Road , and other roads that will bring you up to the Roberts Avenue gate entrance to excess National Stadium. For those using BFA Field ,ensure that you give yourselves enough time that you may have to walk a short distance to the field.

 

 

Please observe the meeting time as the coaches will require all of the time with regards to players getting dressed, team talk and warm-up to adequately prepare the team for the match.

Aims of the Game for BAA Teams

  • We aim to have respect for the game and everyone involved in the game (opponents, referee, teammates, fans, etc.), achieve a quality performance (ball control, game intelligence and athleticism) and play to win; keep in mind that winning must not be achieved without attention to respect and quality performance. In the long term we lose when we win without respect and quality.
  • Humility in victory and gracious in defeat.
  • Football enjoyment!!

 

Support at Youth Matches

  • Thanks for the support by family and friends during the youth matches.
  • Please refrain from providing ‘coaching’ instructions to the players.
  • Our optimal playing concept requires specific information from the coaches of the program.
  • When the players hear ‘coaching’ instructions from parents/family members it can be confusing and is often counterproductive to the message being transmitted by the coaches based on the program’s playing concept.
  • It will not always look the way we expect it to look and the road to the optimal playing concept performance is long with awkward movements and mistakes, thus requiring patience and perseverance with specific and timely interventions by the coaches.
  • The coaches of BAA take this into account and the delivery and timing  of instruction is important (knowing what to say and when to say it).
  • It is important that the voices that the players hear with regards to instruction are the coaches of BAA.
  • Your support is greatly valued, however, please limit comments to cheers of support.
