WPL13 End of Season Report

Congratulations to our NPL U13 girls, their coaches, and their wonderful support network of family and friends.

 

Kids and sport are a great mix, and this year our NPL U13 girls have built healthy minds, healthy bodies, friendships and life skills. They’ve had the chance to experience emotional highs and lows in a safe and structured environment. They’ve learned to be a part of a team, winning well, bouncing back from losses and coping with unpleasant experiences. They’ve figured out how important it is to try hard and never give up. They have worked together in a positive and encouraging atmosphere, connected through physical activity and learned to be confident in themselves and their team. They’ve increased their resilience and learned to pick themselves up, dust themselves off and keep on going.

 

Soccer has a gentle side, with light, dancing feet and weaving skill, but it also requires stamina and guts. It has been great to watch the girls go shoulder to shoulder with their opponents, tackling hard, heading balls, and aggressively chasing their rivals down. Win or lose, these girls worked until the end, and every weekend they walked off the pitch with their heads held high. Then every Tuesday and Thursday back they came, to work on their fitness, their knowledge and their technical ability.

 

The girls were sad to say goodbye to their coach, Chris Yip-Au, who built the girls as individuals and brought them together as a team. When Michele Biscotti took over the girls continued to put in great effort and grew as players. Thank you also to Ian, who encouraged the team to have high expectations of themselves. His program has focused not just on the soccer, but also the education and the development of the players. Ian – it’s with great disappointment that we say goodbye to you too. Please know that your efforts on behalf of our amazing girls are very much appreciated.

 

According to a series of studies, a whopping 90% of women at the top of their industry were sporty as teenagers, because they learned at a young age that it is acceptable to compete aggressively, that success does not depend on how they look, and that it’s acceptable to take pleasure in winning—our girls are well on their way!

Lids 4 Kids collection this weekend, 17 August

This weekend Monaro Panthers will be supporting Lids 4 Kids and will have a collection bucket near the Canteen.

LIDS4KIDS BACKGROUND

Lids4Kids is a 100% volunteer project established to support Envision Hands who turn plastic bottle lids into hand and arm mobility aids for children. Lids4Kids was founded in May 2019 by Tim Miller, a Canberra-based full-time house Dad with three boys under ten who has been fundraising for charities that help sick and disabled kids since 2013. Lids4Kids went viral after ABC News shared Tim's outback charity Holden Rally Team page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/Lids4KidsAU). Within 48 hours, Tim had received a thousand messages of support from volunteers all over Australia who want to help and continues to receive hundreds per day.  Individuals, schools and workplaces can help Lids4Kids by collecting the plastic bottle tops from milk, water and soft-drink bottles that due to their size can't be processed by plastic recycling machines. Lids4Kids is also collecting plastic bread clips for another charity "Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs". Lids4Kids is comprised of 6,000 official collectors, public collection points, town coordinators and regional coordinators across 30 Lids4Kids Groups covering every region in Australia. Lids4Kids hopes to rescue every eligible lid from landfill for projects that benefit all Australian kids in need.  Thanks to the generous support of thousands of volunteers, lids from all over Australia are now making their way to Canberra. They are being processed by volunteers who wash, count and sort them into boxes of individual colours. Many sponsors have come on board to assist with collection, storage boxes, transport and warehousing including Brenners Transport in Cairns far north Queensland. Envision Hands based in Werribee Victoria currently use a 3D printer to make their mobility aids but have set up a GoFundMe page (www.gf.me/u/up6cap) to help fundraise for a new machine to make their own plastic moulds to produce other products to assist kids. 

 

Lids4Kids is focused on improving the lives on disadvantaged kids whilst also protecting the environment. All lids will be allocated to sustainable projects like Envision Hands to help kids.

Mini Panthers is a preschool age soccer program with a huge focus on fun! Our well-trained coaches will provide your child with 40 minutes of highly creative, high energy and age-appropriate activities that serve as a great way to keep your child active while being introduced to the sport through our introduction to the soccer program.

We will help your child master broad developmental milestones, appropriate for their age so that they can keep progressing while they enjoy playing with others. Our program focuses on helping children build strong physical, intellectual and emotional skills that will help them be successful on and off the soccer field. We believe in teaching children in ways that suit their developmental level. You won't see adult-like skill drills in our classes, but you will see teaching methods specifically designed to create an atmosphere that is effective and fun. You will see happy, confident and active kids who are eager to learn and want to keep coming back for more.

At Mini Panthers, it does not matter what level your child is at because the progressive nature of this program has a place for children at all levels. We are committed to ensuring a positive experience for your child. We achieve this through being flexible enough to cater for your child’s needs. This could mean that they are free to run off for a cuddle every few minutes or we give them a more challenging activity if appropriate.

The Mini Panthers program has been structured into beginner (Jaguars) and intermediate (Leopards) skill levels which aim to cater for the big range of skill levels that come through the program.

Jaguars: classes are designed to be fun and fast paced. Classes focus on increasing balancing skills, coordination and fundamental soccer skills. We utilise creative games and help kids develop listening skills and cooperation in a team environment. Jaguars is a high-energy program introducing children to fundamental soccer principles, such as using their feet, dribbling and the basic rules of the game. Through fun games and positive reinforcement, children will begin to experience the joy of playing soccer and being active.

Leopards: classes are for children with some football experience and who are ready for more of a challenge. Players learn intermediate fundamental soccer skills through fun, age-appropriate and creative skill building games and can practice those skills in non-competitive games. Leopards classes focus on individual skill, fitness and sportsmanship, providing an opportunity for children to be challenged through fun games and team interaction. Children will also be introduced to competition in a developmentally appropriate manner.

Please be advised that we need at least 5 participants to go ahead with the Program on each of the days. 
We will confirm once everyone is signed up so please don't hesitate and register today!

Riverside stadium opening event

PANTHERS DOUBLE-HEADER FOR RIVERSIDE OPENING

 

A double-header of National Premier League Football is the highlight as the Monaro Panthers celebrate the Official opening of the revamped Riverside Stadium on Saturday 27 April. 

 

The Hon John Barilaro, Deputy Premier | Leader of the NSW Nationals Member for Monaro and Cr Tim Overall (Mayor) Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council, will perform the official Opening Ceremony honours in between the two fixtures scheduled for the day.

 

The Women’s NPL clash between the Panthers and Canberra United Academy will start proceedings at 4.30pm with the men taking centre-stage at 7pm when the home side welcome last years treble winners Canberra FC.

 

“As a well established Community Football club, serving over 1000 players, their families and the broader Queanbeyan and Palerang region, the Monaro Panthers are aware of the changing needs of the sporting community,” club vice president Geoff Young commented.

 

“We are committed to growing and adapting our club facilities to meet emerging needs. The stadium and surface upgrade will allow us to provide comprehensive access to high quality sporting services to all demographics and including elite women and mens players, seniors and special needs communities. 

 

“The recent works complement the installation of new flood lights which was also funded by NSW government and the QPRC (Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council).

 

“Riverside Stadium is our spiritual home and is strategically vital to making Monaro Panthers once again a force in football.”

 

Thanks to the upgrade funded by the NSW Government and implemented by the QPRC, Riverside will be a showcase for the region.
