MiniRoos Fever Hits Maitland

August 14th, 2015

The Maitland AIA Vitality MiniRoos Football Festival took place yesterday at Maitland JFC’s Fieldsend Oval.

230 children from nine schools including Ashtonfield PS, Metford PS, Millers Forrest PS, Salt Ash PS, St Brigid’s Raymond Terrace, Tenambit PS, Vacy PS, Weston PS and Wirreanda PS made up 33 teams to contest five matches.

Conducted by NNSWF’s MiniRoos Development Officer Mat Fox and Female Participation Officer Nyssa Suchanow, the day was enjoyed by all who attended.

“It’s great to see school aged children participate in festivals such as these whether they play community football on the weekend, or have never kicked a ball before,” Fox said.

“The AIA Vitality MiniRoos Festivals are aimed at introducing football to young children and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.”
