Rob Dickfos To Coach Under 16's In 2011
The Redcliffe Tigers are pleased to announce the appointment of Rob Dickfos as coach of their under 16’s team for the coming 2011 season. Dickfos has fast become a regular mentor of junior footballers at Redcliffe and even more recent in the Representative circle with his involvement with the Raiders development squads, where Redcliffe had no less than 7 players represent the club in 14’s and 16’s in 2010. He has been a previous recipient of the State Youth Coach of the Year and State Auskick Coach of the Year.
Fresh from coaching Redcliffe’s under 14’s div 1 team, Dickfos couldn’t wait to put his hand up to continue the development of the players and continue his reputation as one of the best development coaches within the junior ranks in South East Qld.
When asked why Redcliffe, Dickfos’ reply was simple. “There are more than two clubs on the north side that are capable of developing quality players and quality teams. If you are surrounded by a team that is loaded with talent, then the work ethic is harder to teach and the search for a comfort zone is too easy for a player to find. So I believe in training harder because as you get older, your opposition get bigger, stronger and faster, so we train accordingly. This gives a dedicated player every chance to go the next step. That to me is exciting.”
The club has every intention of nominating for the Div 1 McDonalds cup next year to provide the dedicated and serious footballer every chance to play against the best, while becoming a part of a team where all players are apart of one group.
Any Player/Parent interested in being part of this team and being guaranteed a chance to improve can call me on the number listed below.
You will not be disappointed.
