Keeping up with the MiniRoos

#15: Nelson Bay Kicks Off HUGE Summer Program

November 6th, 2019

Tomaree Sports Complex is home to our BIGGEST MiniRoos Kick-Off Program this summer with an incredible 50 kids participating in MiniRoos Kick-Off and MiniRoos Kick-Off for Girls.

In a mass first week turnout there were parents and kids everywhere, all excited to start their new programs and receive their participant packs and t-shirts! Coaching Co-Ordinator Any McKenzie delivered an opening address letting parents and kids know what the session will entail. With 4 fields set up, kids were split up depending on age and were sent off to meet their coaches.

When joining in with different groups I saw many smiles and heard plenty of laughter (exactly what we want in MiniRoos!). The coaches were able to engage with the players and deliver quality practices in an effort to build confidence and skills in all players.

After the session there were many happy (and tired) faces about, and many keen to come back for session 2.

Big congratulations to Nelson Bay FC and Martine Shaw for working so diligently to engage so many young players with the opportunity to play more football! I am looking forward to seeing this program aid young footballers to start their path to football success!
