U6, U7 and U8 Age Groups – January 2022

Message From Club Secretary

Firstly, thank you all for your patience. I know that being on a waiting list can be very frustrating. The demand for Sheen Lions increases every year but this season it has taken us by surprise how many children want to join. As you would expect we are very mindful of how big the groups are and need to ensure that ratios of children and coaches are right so we can deliver the very best experience for the players.

I am pleased to say that we are now in a position where we can offer a training session for U7s & U8s on the waiting list, but only if there is enough demand to make it viable. If the numbers are good enough we will have separate age groups. If there are only enough players for one group we will combine the U7s and U8s as one group. If the uptake is very low then we will not be able to offer the session at all.

Some of you may indeed have found a place elsewhere, and are happy with your choice and that’s perfectly understandable. However, if you would be kind enough to let us know, one way or the other, whether this is something you would sign up to  so we can then gauge to see if we are in a position to go ahead, we’d be very grateful.

Those of you already on the waiting list have been sent an email invitation to register for our Cubs squad. Please respond on that email as soon as possible but by Monday 27th December at the very latest.

The sessions will start from Saturday 8th January 2022 on Palewell Common at 10.45am – 12.15pm. This is NOT the same time as the existing sessions for these age groups. The first session will be a trial to give you the opportunity to make the decision to continue or not. You will have to complete your membership by paying before you attend any later sessions.

Planned training dates are shown in the calendar on the team pages, note that the Cubs sessions starting at 10:45 are the ones you are looking for. You may attend the Special Goal Keeper sessions also shown if you wish.

kind regards
Sarah Street
