Many people believe that there has never been a more challenging time to raise children then now. Certainly this new frontier of the digital world has brought with a whole raft of new challenges. Unfortunately many parents feel isolated in their struggle to raise their children and are now looking in all directions for help and support. Well, perhaps help isn’t as far away as one might think.

As the president of a rather large local football club I realized the many benefits to parents and children that were hidden within the walls of a club that went well beyond just teaching our boys how to play sport.In fact a sporting club has within it all the ingredients that a young boy needs to not just survive, but THRIVE!

If done properly, then these are some of the many benefits:village 1

village 2

Strong male role models
A battlefield for the young warrior
A place for controlled aggression
Support for single mothers
Rules and boundaries for our boys
Father and Son camp opportunities
Simply time for Dad to be in his sons life
