It is precisely this mentality, that winning comes before development,
that needs to be changed and better understood.
Australian football must have a fundamental change as to how the game is
played and coached, with this transformation beginning at the grassroots
Understandably, there must be a balance between winning and player
development, however, the primary objective must be to develop more ‘world class
In the words of Peter Drucker, ‘the best way to predict the future is to
create the future’.
And so, the FFA has commenced this journey in scripting the future for player
development with the implementation of the Optus Small Sided Football (OSSF)
OSSF are football games designed especially for children, with fewer players
on smaller sized fields. The formats of OSSF allow for greater interaction with
the ball and involvement in the game.
OSSF meets the developmental needs of younger players whilst maintaining a
strong focus on maximum participation fun and enjoyment.

It was a crisp and breezy morning for
our early game against Pine Hills, our first encounter with Samford's alliance
Back to a full squad of ten and the team
were keen to get into the game - or perhaps we were just all cold.
The pre-match talk was all about who had
friends in the other team - there were quite a few which always makes for a fun game.
Having not played Pine Hills I didn't
know what to expect, but I didn't expect the game we had!
From the outset our excellent form so
far this season wasn't there. Everyone was playing well and giving their all
but it just didn't click for once - that happens sometimes.
In the first half there were some great
performances but we couldn't manage to score. Pine Hills got one past us and
fantastic keeping from Mason - including stopping a missile with his face -
kept it at one.
Our girl power was out in force, but
mainly in defence, as Ingrid, Emily and Hannah kept it tight.
In the mid-field Joe, Corban and Toby
were in the thick of the action while Nick, Connor and Jacob pushed in attack
as well as helping out in mid-field.
The second half was a similarly close
tussle. Jacob scored one for us from a penalty but most of the action was in
the centre of the park.
Toby was great in goals making some
great saves and clearing kicks.
I can't remember the last time we saw
only three goals in a game, it was a close and entertaining battle. Well played
and in great spirit by both sides.
Mason took Player of the Week for great
keeping and soldiering on after his big smack in the face.
We started the game with only 8 players with Ryan and Connor unable to make it. Harvey lasted only 10 minutes before succumbing to illness so for most of the game it was 7 players against a very skilful and well drilled team from Deception Bay so everyone had to work extra hard. Lucas showed great skills to score 3 goals and James and Sean pulled off some fantastic saves in goal. Player of the week went to Josie for her great defence which prevented many more goals against us.
