Manly Women’s Development Day

Sunday 21 October saw the Manly Women’s Premier League hold their Junior Touch Development Day at the Narrabeen Sports High all weather facility.  Many thanks to all the kids and parents who supported the day, with photos available here now.  We are looking forward to continuing to cater for all player skill levels, both boys and girls and whether players are touch newbies or representative players keen to sharpen up their skills whilst learning new ones.

Many thanks from the squad to all the helpers on the day especially the fantastic Jenny Rodgers and Michelle Geros who did a fantastic job with the event organising.  Also special thanks to Mike Pawley Sports who donated discount vouchers to all attendees! 

Watch this space for our next Development Day in the upcoming December/January School Holidays so that players can get ready for Junior State Cup and Scorpions Junior Gala Day in the perfect way!  Dates coming soon and keep practicing those skills you learnt so we can check them out next time we meet!  Further info via email@manlywomenstouch.com
