Term 3 has brought huge numbers across all programs with approximately 500 players registered throughout the Glory Skills, Club Based Training, Let’s Play and Glory Juniors. This is set to grow with more Let’s Play clinics being organised to welcome the Hyundai A League 2013/14 Season.

Term 3 has brought huge numbers across all programs with approximately 500 players registered throughout the Glory Skills, Club Based Training, Let-s Play and Glory Juniors. This is set to grow with more Let-s Play clinics being organised to welcome the Hyundai A League 2013/14 Season.

Community and Development Officer Michael Garcia commented, “The numbers are a fantastic indication that the football family are happy with our hard work in the community and are continuing to support our programs. We are extremely proud with how the Department is growing and long may it continue!”

Glory in the Community now delivers seven structured football programs as well as a Club Link Personnel initiative that ensure the lines of communication are always open between the Member Federations throughout the A League and Football West season.

Carolyn Edwards of Melville City Soccer Club explained, “As a founding CLP member I am so pleased with how the program has grown and how many young people in our football community it has reached. Many thousands of kids have had the opportunity to be involved with the Perth Glory through the Soccer Schools, School and Club based programs. Not only that, the ‘Match day- experiences provided by Glory - ball boys, half time small sided games and Hyundai Mat, have also allowed children to be more actively involved with the ‘Big Boys-. Thank you Glory and the other CLP-s for making this so much fun.”

With many repeat customers it is no surprise that clubs committed to junior players, like Forrestfield United, have initiated a Glory presence in their club.

Laura Di Toro of Forrestfield United Soccer Club commented, “The Club Based Training is an excellent addition to our soccer program at Forrestfield United. Callum makes every session exciting, challenging, and developmentally appropriate for each skill level. It is great to see the players respond with so much enthusiasm and discipline. Forrestfield believes in the importance of developing our young players and being able to offer professional coaching at an affordable price. We are continuing with the CBT program as it complements our current training program and offers another way to enhance the development of our junior players.”
