South Nowra Football Complex was met with a sea of primary school children from six local schools which included Vincentia and Bomaderry Public amongst a host of others on Wednesday 30th October as part of the 2019 National Indigenous Football Championships.
Each student participated in a specially run ALDI MiniRoos clinic as over 90 school kids were put through their paces by Football Staff as well as coaches that attended which included Shoalhaven Association’ Mark Johnston and Wollongong Wolves’ Coach of the Year winner Luke Wilkshire.
Football NSW Game Development Officer for Community Charlotte Ercil applauded how the first day unfolded and recognised the importance of unification across all levels of the sport.
“It was great to see player engagement from all levels of football.
“A big thank you to Shoalhaven Association, tournament directors from NIFC and Luke Wilkshire as well as the Wollongong Wolves for their assistance on what was a great day enjoyed by all.
Day one of the senior men’s and women’s National Indigenous Football Championships will commence as the tournament football action takes centre stage.
