Why should “the world game” be confined to just the Winter months? A couple of Helensburgh Soccer parents asked the same question and have set about to gather interest for a Summer competition for the kids.
“We are hoping to attract teams from the Northern Illawarra up to Heathcote and Engadine. While it is a competition the emphasis will be on having fun and playing fair,” says Simon.
“The games will be on Mondays between 4.30 and 6.30pm, right before the adult Summer 7 kicks off, so we hope this will be a bit of a family event, where the parents watch the early games and the kids stick around to watch mum and dad have a run around.”
Jeanne points out that “small sided soccer is a great way for kids to keep their balls skills and maintain their fitness. Kath Duggan has organised a successful adult Summer 7’s soccer competition here in Helensburgh for over 10 years and we are hoping to give our kids the same opportunity.”
“We would like to know, if there is enough interest and as such we need to have an idea of numbers of interested teams and players looking for a team.”
The competition will start on Monday, October 13 and run until March 2015.
The teams will be in the following age groups: U7, U9, U11, U 13 and U15.
Fees are not fixed at this point in time, but it will not be more than $80/player.
If you have a team or individual players, that are interested, please email the name and age group before Monday, September 8th (this is not an official registration, but serves us to gain an idea of numbers and collect the contact details).
Please also visit the Facebook page, like, share, start discussions and link up with other players and teams.
