Ju­nior foot­ball is ready to kick off

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT - By STEE VI­VIAN

PLAY­ERS are wel­come to reg­is­ter for un­der 10’s and 12’s foot­ball this week.

Reg­is­tra­tion will be held at train­ing to­day (Wed­nes­day, March 29) be­tween 4pm and 6pm.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing reg­is­tra­tion or all things ju­nior footy, please con­tact Tammy Pur­cell on 0417 309 261.

Train­ing for both un­der 10’s and 12’s are held once a week on Wed­nes­days.

The sea­son kicks off Satur­day, April 22.

Both age groups play in the Mans­field Ju­nior Foot­ball League.

That’s right, the teams play be­tween them­selves, so how does it work?

Both un­der 10’s and 12’s are split in to two evenly matched teams.

In un­der 10’s you have the Hawks and De­mons, and in un­der 12’s you have the Blues and Bombers.

It is a unique sit­u­a­tion, but with two teams, lo­cal kids can play footy each and ev­ery week and never miss out.

The Mans­field ju­nior foot­ball pro­gram be­lieves at this age, kids should be able to run out and play with their mates ev­ery Satur­day, re­gard­less of skill level.

Let’s see how th­ese sea­son long ri­val­ries de­velop!
