Dear Sports Coordinator,

COERVER ® Coaching is the World’s Number One Soccer skills teaching method and will be coordinating the upcoming Primary Schools Football (Soccer) COERVER ® CUP. In my previous employment I was a teacher for the past 7 years in the ACT Primary School System prior to taking up my position with COERVER® Coaching as Assistant Manager.

Since Chris Conti retired there has not been a football (soccer) competition run for ACT Primary Schools to participate in. One of my aims this year is to provide an opportunity for schools to participate in a one day carnival with the emphasis being on participation and friendly competition.

Each PSSA zone will have a one day carnival for both boys and girls teams. The carnivals will be run in weeks 8 and 9 of term 2 at a venue in your PSSA zone.

Dates and Venue of Carnivals for each PSSA Zone
All carnivals will run 9am- 3pm

1 Tuggeranong Wanniassa Playing Fields Monday 15TH June
2 Murrumbidgee Calwell Playing Fields Tuesday 16th June

• Schools are invited to nominate one girls and one boys team for the carnival.

• If your school would like you can enter one mixed team of boys and girls which will compete in the boys competition.

• Players may come from years 4, 5 and 6. It is up to individual schools to decide what age group they bring their players from, but primarily the players should be from years 5 and 6.

Please note: Due to field availability and the logistics of running such a carnival, numbers will be strictly limited to 8 boys teams and 8 girls teams per PSSA Zone. The first 8 schools to enter teams will secure a place in the carnival.

• The cost of the carnival will be $8 per player.
• Schools are encouraged to bring up to 16 players per team.
• The rules will be Under 12 competition rules.
• 11 players per team on the field at one time.
• Full field games.
• 25 minute games no half time break, straight change of ends,
• Unlimited interchange to be made when the ball is out on the referee’s discretion.
• Each team will play a minimum of 4 games.

Competition details such as rules, draws, prizes etc will be forwarded to your school in a competition package once your school’s nomination has been received.

Also included in this package will be the permission note that MUST be brought to the carnival on the day of competition. Any child without the permission note on the day of the carnival will not be allowed to play.

A canteen will be available on the day at each carnival. COERVER ® Coaching ACT will work closely with each club who operates the ground of the respective carnival. This will provide an opportunity for schools to form close relationships with the clubs in their area. These are often the clubs that the majority of footballers from your school play with on the weekends.

To secure your schools place in the carnival please return the application form to

Closing date for nominations is Friday June 5th 2009. Please remember only the first 8 schools to nominate can be accepted per carnival. The sooner you get your application the greater chance you have of securing a place for your school.

The PSSA fully endorse COERVER Coaching ACT running these carnivals.
