Saturday Morning SkillZ 2020 - 4-8 yo

Brunswick Zebras' highly popular Saturday morning introductory Skills program for 4 to 8 year olds is back again for 2020.

Saturday Morning Skillz is held on Saturday mornings at 10:30 am at Sumner Park.

A fun but structured introduction to the game for young players, Saturday Morning Skillz includes football based activities, individual ball work and small-sided games at the end of each session. 

We also have a group just for girls.

Brunswick Zebras offers this program on Saturday mornings during the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th school terms. 

New players welcome. Tell your friends!

The program will be run over one 1 1/2-hour session from 10.30 am to 12.00 noon.  Coaching resources will be allocated to indivdual groups during this time based on age/ability.

Our Team is led by Robbie Peters, a former professional player in England who is now a leading sports conditioning trainer and coach of young football players.  Robbie has been associated with our club for the past four years and runs the Saturday Morning Skillz program with his fantastic mix of expertise and enthusiasm.

PS : We look after the parents too….  We have a canteen open on Saturday mornings and as a club with an Italian heritage we have great coffee made fresh!  You can go down by the pitch fence to watch your child or sit under the sheltered veranda and watch from there. Or sip your coffee inside our clubrooms and read the Saturday paper.
