PKSC embarked on this incredible Junior Elite program towards the end of 2019 and we are thrilled to announce that our Junior Elite Program is returning for another strong year. This program, coordinated by Mr Tommy Joyce and 2 additional coaches from PKSC, targets the 8-12yr age bracket and is for children who have been identified by their coach or our performance team to give them the opportunity/experience to train at a higher level. The program will be recommencing Mondays during term 2 2021 from 4.30pm til 5.30pm. There will be the initial assessment day and the 6 week program will then commence. This is a program that PKSC wants to retain to ensure we create depth within our Junior and from there, more opportunities for our Junior teams to play at higher levels. PKSC were extremely fortunate in receiving a Community Grant last year which enabled our Club to purchase some much needed equipment for our Elite Program and we are excited to available to continue hosting such an incredible FREE program for our members. Parents, if you have any questions regarding this program, please direct all questions to Tommy. At the commencement of each term, Tommy will be seeking players who you believe may benefit from this program. In turn, Tommy may also retain some players.All players will need training kit, shin pads, boots and water.Please be aware that this is by selection of PKSC players only.
