Youth Football Invitational

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 3:28 PM by Chris Brown

The WAFC Metro Central Conference held their inaugural Youth Football Invitational last weekend with over 400 year seven footballers participating, making the jump from junior to youth football.
The day revolved around familiarising players and parents with the different rules and regulations that come with moving up the age bracket, specifically in regard to matches themselves and the new rules.
A number of football activities were run throughout the day to engage players, including team building exercises, rule demonstrations and gameday setups.
This informational session is vital to the development of young footballers, allowing a smooth transition in their journey at club level.
Competitions & Club Development Team Leader Corey Ranger was thrilled with the invitational and thanked the staff and volunteers for the successful running of the event.
“To have over 400 participants and 1000 spectators attend the session is terrific for the Central Conference,” Ranger said.
“Players left the session with a strong understanding of the requirements for Youth football, namely the differences in times, matches and rules.”
“We hope these days are as educational as possible, and we thank the tireless staff and volunteers for their hard work.”
The football season kicks off on Friday April 26th.
