We are holding our 27th consecutive Sussex Sixes football tournament on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May 2017 at West Park Playing Fields, the home of Uckfield Grasshoppers! And once again we are looking for your support. We are expecting in excess of 120 teams from over 50 different local clubs and over 3000 people attending over the weekend.
Uckfield Grasshoppers Junior football club is dedicated to developing football for young people in the local community. All the coaching and support we receive is provided on a purely voluntary basis.
We have introduced a successful legacy mentoring scheme and on the back of this we are hoping to introduce and host a young leaders’ course. We have a head coach who hosts our monthly Coach the Coaches sessions as well as ensuring we deliver consistently good coaching for our members.
We have more coaches developing their skills by continuing their coaching pathway. We have lots of coaches starting their level 2 awards, as well as attendance in Goal Keeper, Fustal, Block 1 of UEFA B as well as several attending additional CPD events at Sussex FA.
We are also developing links with football academies and non-league, pro clubs in the South East.
The plan over the next few months is introduce a Futsal Development Session, football tours, holiday sessions, and look at offering more football opportunities to older age groups as a pathway into the adult game. It truly is an exciting time to be involved in the club.
To ensure we continue in our development, we need your help. This is the club’s only fund raising event and we would like you to share in our success and appreciate any support you can give to help ensure we provide the very best football we can to the children of our community.
There are many ways you can support our event:
- We have a high-quality A5 tournament brochure and are selling advertising space at £60.00 for a half page and £100.00 for a full page. 1000 copies will be printed and sold at the event.
