Come & Try Soccer program
Stay Active is proud to announce its new partnership with Cumberland United Women's Football Club (CUWFC)! Stay Active and CUWFC have teamed up to run a twilight Come & Try Soccer program in January 2019.
Managed by Kelly Harrison (Stay Active) and facilitated Martin Orchard (CUWFC), your child could not be in a more supportive environment to try out their Soccer skills these school holidays!
Martin has over 20 years experience coaching/playing in his home country of England, and his past employers include: Aston Villa FC, West Bromwich Albion FC, Kidderminster Harriers FC and Worcestershire English Football Association. He is a qualified English Football Association coach and is currently Head Coach at CUWFC.
Kelly is Stay Active's Managing Director and used to play as a junior at CUWFC for 5 years. She returned in the last few years as a Division One player, U11 Coach in 2017 and U13 Coach in 2018 and 2019. Kelly has received her Skill Training Certificate from FFSA and is looking forward to seeing some new faces at Women's Memorial Playing Fields.
The Come ‘n’ Try Soccer program is for U7, U9, U11 and U13 girls and boys. The program will focus on ensuring all players are having fun, working as a team, making friends, supporting one another and improving their Soccer skills. The activities will be adapted to the ability level of each individual child. As such, this program is recommended for children who have played school Soccer before and now want to try Soccer in a club environment, as well as children who have never touched a Soccer ball.
The U13 Skill Development program will encompass improving the players’ ball mastery skills and implementing them in a 1 v 1 scenario. It will go through positioning of players, passing and moving and working as a team. This program is for children who have played Soccer at a club level within the last 12 months and feel they want to improve in these areas before the upcoming season.
A Stay Active Play area will also be set up for the duration of each program for any children 3-4 y.o. who want to play with equipment whilst their brother/sister plays in the program. Squishy, soft dodgeballs, tennis balls, Soccer balls, pool noodles, hula hoops, rubber chickens etc will be available and this area will be supervised. A $2.00 entry fee will be charged on the night.

Community Events (Health Promotion)
Stay Active has a firm belief that physical activity, recreational and sporting activities are not about winning, but building healthy, happy and safe communities. We advocate and provide support to local councils, community projects or events that foster inclusion and strengthen communities through sport and physical activity.
Catering for a variety of children’s age groups and ability levels, we can organize and host an event from start to finish, or simply arrive on the day and boost the atmosphere by providing a fun and engaging program!
10 reasons why sport and physical activity benefits communities:
Brings communities together, providing opportunities for social interaction
Empowers, inspires and motivates children to participate in sport or physical activity
Keeps children away from the TV, iPad or computer screen!
Research shows children who participate in community sport or physical activity are more likely to succeed academically
Creates positive alternatives to children at risk of offending or engaging in antisocial behaviour
Reduces pollution by promoting the use of active modes of transport to events such as walking, running or cycling
Provides a vehicle for inclusion, bringing people together from different races, religions and cultures
Helps to sustain the environment by protecting open space and natural areas
Sport and recreation clubs are the hub of community life
Reduces obesity and contributes towards prevention of cardiovascular disease and diabetes
Help us make physical activity a greater priority within our community.
