Mount Waverley Host 1st Nine One Football 3v3+GK Tournament
The new $2 million dollar artificial surface at Mount Waverley City's Gardiners Reserve, will host the 1st Nine One Football 3v3+GK Tournament in the July School Holidays.
The Exciting Fast Paced Tournament, is set down for Wednesday July 4 from 9am until Noon and is open for Sub Junior Teams 8-11 years and Junior Teams 12 - 16 years. But depending on demand extra age group categories may be added. Cost per team is $150 with a maximum of 5 players in a a squad including 1 Goalkeeper and you can register here . You do not need to have your full squad finalised immediately so make sure you get your team in quick. Teams from official clubs are welcome just as a team made up of mates is equally as good.
The new 4G Pitch at Gardiners Reserve is the perfect venue to launch 3v3+GK said Nine One boss Paul Harvey "With the event being in winter it is important that we have surfaces that will not be waterlogged or cut up too much so the 3G & 4G surfaces are great."
There will be 2 pitches laid out on the Main Pitch. The Junior Pitch with Full Size Goals and the Sub Junior Pitch with the smaller goals. Games will be played every 12 minutes in a Champions League Type Format that will guarantee a minimum of 3 games per team with Trophies for the winning team.
Nine One Football's 3v3+GK is the most exciting small sided version of Soccer in the world today, as the game is all about Goals & Saves.
3v3+GK has been created to replicate the Final Third of a traditional football pitch with full size goals. It is considered by leading coaches to be the most relevant small sided game to improve attacking, defensive and transition play.
With 3 players a side plus a Goalkeeper, it is up to the team’s coach to decide the combination of players, but the game is great for players who play in any position on the pitch.
The 9 minute game is very fast paced and offers more touches, movement, goals & saves than any other game and creates constant goal scoring opportunities.
