An electric day of football unfolded at Bankstown City Sports Complex as thirty-two teams competed in last Saturday’s BDAFA’s U10 Gala Day.
The event supported by Bankstown Sports Club, members of the football community and parent volunteers, contributed to “a day of football fun” epitomising the value of grassroots football for all.
With clear skies the creator of a beautiful sunny day, the first games were underway as one of three that each team were involved in and lasting for 25 minutes.
Between the breaks, children were seen smiling as they posed for photos in front of the ‘Penalty Shot’ activation and MiniRoos shooting target, organised by Football NSW’s Cameron Whitton.
This proved to be quite popular with nearly a dozen kids lined up at any one time for a chance to refine their skills, make friends and have fun.
Frank Fruci, Club President of Bankstown Sports Stars FC was delighted with how the football community had come together.
“It was a great day for our football community, uniting all of the local clubs as one and inspiring our children to love the game in a relaxed and entertaining environment. This created an energetic atmosphere with music, games, rides, delicious food and most importantly the players shared their joy along with friends and family.”
Other highlights of BDAFA’s U10 Gala Day included face painting, jersey printing, prizes, fitness workshops and an all day BBQ firing up sausage sizzles.
“The event was a huge success in brining together coaches and managers from all clubs, sharing ideas for the future of the sport and to help remind us about the true meaning of grassroots football.”
