M.R.F.A. Transition Festival
M.R.F.A. are hosting their first ever tournament/festival!
On Saturday 23rd April 2016, M.R.F.A. are holding two U8’s Transition Festivals to introduce players to the move from 5v5 to 7v7. When players go from U8’s to U9’s, the player count will increase by 2 – our Transition Festival will guide players to this step up and how they will need to incorporate the new format into their games.
The festival will be non-competitive and there will be no winners, runners up and so forth (but they will receive medals for their participation).
Date: Saturday 23rd April 2016
Time: first festival 12pm, second festival 3pm
Venue: Moulsham High School, Chelmsford CM2 9ES
Entry fee per team: £40
Academy Director, Michael Richardson, gave us his thoughts on the festival, “The festival will be a great opportunity for players and coaches to get accustom to the new 7v7 format. It is anticipated to be a great day, where football clubs within the area will come together for an afternoon of competitive playing and development. The transition for U8’s to under 9’s can be difficult and it’s important players are guided and given the support they need through this process.”
To register your club’s interest and put your U8’s team forward, please complete the form below and we will get in touch with you. Spaces are limited, with only 24 spots for teams.
Entries must be made by Saturday 9th April 2016.
