Hello DB Angels and Parents!
Welcome back to DB Angels Football. We hope you have enjoyed a wonderful
summer wherever you have been. During the off season, the DB Angels
management committee has been busy organizing behind the scenes to ensure a
great 2019-2020 season and that the girls enjoy themselves to the fullest!
Football Club News:
As many of you know we joined the Hong Kong Junior Football League (HKJFL) last
season and will continue that again this year. That means that our girls’ teams will
have the expanded opportunity to participate in more friendly matches against other
league teams across Hong Kong throughout the year. This is always more fun than
only training and over time will build our girls’ skills and competitiveness.
This season we will host several of those HKJFL matches here in DB, which should
be great fun and will eliminate outside travel on those days.
Tekkerz Cooperation Continues:
Again, this season we build upon our great cooperation with Baz Brown and the
Tekkerz organization from last year. Our older (U12 and U14) girls will team up with
Tekkerz girls to create a larger and stronger combined team for Sunday practices,
Tournaments and Saturday League matches. Baz Brown will provide coaching
expertise for our Angels U12 and U14 at Sunday practices. We see this as a great
way to provide the older DB Angel and Tekkerz girls a more stable longer-term
platform for them to be able to stay, play and develop a strong core team together in
Tekkerz will also be providing an opportunity for a second weekly training session for
those of our younger Angels who want to develop their skills to a higher level, at
DBIS on Monday evenings. Keen girls who elect to join this extra training day will be
able to play twice a week plus Saturday matches and tournaments. These extra
“Skills” sessions, run by Tekkerz, are not included in the price of the Angels annual
registration. However, they are moderately priced and in combination with the DB
Angels low-priced program (which includes HKJFL League matches and
tournaments), this pairing is intended to provide the lowest cost highest quality
combination of coaching and skills development of any football program in Hong
ANGEL AGM and Organizing Committee:
Our current Organizing Committee includes; Christian Low – Chairman, Sean Parry –
Vice Chairman, Conor O’neill – Treasurer, Oliver Ng – Kit Manager and Karla Wiebe –
Along with our dedicated coaching squad, we are all very committed to seeing the
DB Angels thrive and maintain the wonderful family friendly sports environment that
it has grown to be well known for. To that end, during the season, we will be holding
Socials and our Annual General Meeting to discuss how the Club can continue to
thrive. Stay tuned for announcement of these events.
DBIS Pitch / Practice Location Confirmed:
We are pleased to say that the we were able to secure the same pitch bookings on
Sundays at DBIS as before. See details below for the times of your age-group
First practice of the season will be on Sunday, September 8th.
Our 2019-2020 season runs from September 2019 through May 2020.
Free trial for new members at our first practice, so please get the word out and
invite your friends to come out and try out the “Beautiful Game” with us!
We have several returning and some new coaches to lead our teams this year. Our
coaches are meeting together pre-season to share best practice tips and work out
enhanced training programmes focused on progression through the age groups.
Additionally, we rely on support during practice from our parent volunteer coaches.
So please do let us know if you would like to contribute in this way. Thank you to all
those of you who have put in the time week after week to guide all of our kids in
picking up the skills and passion for the game!
Age Groups and Practice Times:
We are running four age group teams this year, U8, U10, U12 and U14.
