The Hobart Zebra’s Football Club

The Tilford Zebras were formed in 1956, they were then known as the Hobart Juventus Soccer Club. The Club was formed by Italian immigrants who had a great passion for football. After a slow start to our history, the Southern and State Premierships started to roll in, not to mention the Statewide Cups & Pre-Season Cups. This has made the Tilford Zebras the most successful Football Club in Tasmania over the last fifty years.

Welcome to all from Tilford Zebras new Technical Director

Hi All

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you all and entrust that you all had a safe and restful festive season.

The purpose of this email is to inform you all of our Beachside Zebras SAP program for 2015.

The program aims to teach players the importance of teamwork, team spirit and sportsmanship as well as providing an enjoyable and fun environment for them to thrive in.

The first 4 week program commences:

 Wednesday 11th February at John Turnbull Oval Lenah Valley.

 There will be two sessions per week as follows:

 Mondays 5pm – 6pm

 Wednesdays 5pm – 6pm.

The total fees for each 4 week program is $80 which will need to be paid prior to first session.

I am pleased to announce that the program will be managed by Jayden Hey who was awarded the state’s best player in 2013.

Jayden has the desire, passion and commitment in delivering the program and a coaching ethos centered around player development.

My role as Technical Director is to oversee the skill development program with emphasis on providing leadership and direction ensuring a consistent approach is taken to the development of players and coaches.

I will keep you all regularly informed of any updates or developments throughout the program and please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have as I am a firm believer of open communication in person  or email and I will promptly reply.
