Our Tuggies have sent in word about their youth development plans for the Summer:
Tuggeranong United have re-appointed their two youth coaches, and will add a Summer Academy for promising players as part of their continuing commitment to youth development. Vince Ruiz and Stan Mitchell will remain as Premier League Under 18 and Premier League 16 coaches respectively for the 2013 season.
The inaugural TUFC Summer Academy will see coaches from the club’s PL program run sessions for promising boys and girls aged 10 to 15 years. The aim of the program is to develop and identify players to feed into the 2013 Premier League squads. For the first time this will include PL Under 12s and Under 14s, which Tuggeranong United sees as a positive step forward. Interested players or their parents and coaches should contact firstname.lastname@example.org by 27 September.
