Football club PPS was established in 2006 in Pakkala, Vantaa. The club’s primary purpose is to offer everyone equally a possibility to train and play football.
At the age of five, the teams are set up by the age groups, and boys and girls have individual teams. After that, anyone can join regardless of age or even if you haven’t done it before. PPS also has recreational teams for adults.
The club staff is:
Club Coordinator Risto Tikka
Head of Coaching Mauricio Soto
Girls’ football Coordinator Maria Olin-Bolin
Several coaches are working for the teams. In addition, parents are helping as coaches and in other tasks. Parents of the players are doing voluntary work in their spare time, and all parents are more than welcome to give their time and effort to the team. The club is investing in educating the coaches and the volunteers.
More important than the end result of the game, is to support all players to be brave and to try their best. The player’s equality is in high priority so in our club every player has an equal opportunity to engage. Every player will have the right level of games where the individual has a possibility to succeed and to progress in the game.
Depending on the age group, the teams have training 2-4 times a week. During the summer (April-October), training is at Kartanonkoski, and during the winter, the training sessions will be at nearby schools and football halls. Games and tournaments can be all over in nearby cities.
Each player’s personal gear includes:
The club’s main communication channel is MyClub and our website. Via MyClub you will receive information and invoices and attend in events. We use it for internal communication and to gather players’ information. Next to this, we also use a WhatsApp group for parents. The club and the teams also have social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube).
Parents will inform the coaches via MyClub whether the player is attending in events. When organizing rehearsals for a team, it is necessary to know if there will be 20 or 40 players in the event. The coach must know how many groups will be formed and how many coaches are needed in games and in tournaments.
The club collects membership fees and seasonal fees from all players. Prices and more information in here and you can also contact the Team Managers (contact information pakkalanpalloseura.fi -> Joukkueet / Teams)
The team’s monthly fee is decided in the parent’s meeting every autumn. This fee covers operating costs and the team’s common necessities (training fields, coaching, games, tournaments, referees, etc.). If a player quits, the payment goes for the month in which it was reported, as well as the month following the notice. The player can participate in the activities normally during this time.
The club gear is at a different cost and available in Intersport Tammisto. You can purcase the gear from the shop or from their webstore. Contact the Team Manager first to get the game number for the player!
All players need to have insurance, which can be purchased with Pelipassi, or if the player has leisure insurance. If the player has their own insurance, you need to make sure it covers hobbies and sports like football.
Invoices are sent via MyClub. Please note that unpaid invoices are moved to the collection by Visma.
If the player decides to quit the team, this needs to be informed to the Club Coordinator and the Team Manager in writing (email).
