Play in Purple July 30-31

Play in Purple raises awareness and critical funds for pancreatic cancer research and patient support. Not many people know that pancreatic cancer is the 3rd biggest cancer killer in Australia, with just an 11.5% survival rate, yet it receives little or no funding for research. You can help change that. Majura's Play in Purple round is this weekend, July 30-31. Our club sees this as a wonderful opportunity to increase player and community engagement, while supporting an important cause and we would like as many players and teams as possible to get involved in the Play in Purple round and support pancreatic cancer awareness by wearing purple socks or accessories. Majura FC will be selling all things purple tomorrow so everyone can be involved. See you

The MSA utilises a holistic approach to training and is consistent with the Majura FC mission of providing players with an environment where they can reach their full potential and most of all enjoy their football.

Our ultimate goal is to provide an environment where players can express themselves, improve their skills and learn to play the game in an attacking and creative manner.

Coaching Courses and the Long Weekend Break

MiniRoos Coaching Certificate Capital Football in conjunction with Majura FC will be running a MiniRoos Coaching Certificate this Thursday June 9, 6.00-9.00pm at Dickson Fields. The course is free but you do need to register on the link below. The 3 hour course is designed for coaching 5-9 year old players who are in the discovery phase of their football life. It's fully practical (so come ready to join in games) and encourages coaches to develop practices that are fun. The emphasis is on natural development so learning by playing football. Organising fun football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game. Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting. The course is open to everyone whether your coaching now or want to coach in the future. Register for a MiniRoos Coaching Certificate Now No Games on the June Long Weekend (with a few exceptions!)
