Stu­dents put skills to good use

North Coast Times - - SPORT -

BUT­LER stu­dents re­cently trav­elled to Wem­b­ley to help run the No Lim­its Associated and Catholic Col­leges (ACC) In­clu­sive Soc­cer Car­ni­val.

The years 11 and 12 stu­dents from Irene McCor­mack Catholic Col­lege were among five schools with seven teams tak­ing part in the ACC In­clu­sive Sport event, which pro­vided com­pet­i­tive op­por­tu­ni­ties for all stu­dents.

“In the sport and recre­ation course at the col­lege, the stu­dents learn how to of­fi­ci­ate games, and how to de­sign and con­duct train­ing ses­sions,” soc­cer acad­emy co-or­di­na­tor Damian Ste­fanoff said.

“This day was a great op­por­tu­nity for the stu­dents to put their skills into prac­tice.

“The stu­dents not only ref­er­eed the games, but helped the teams and play­ers who needed a bit more as­sis­tance.

“This was re­ward­ing when our stu­dents saw the ap­pre­ci­a­tion on the play­ers’ faces, and the joy when they achieved in­di­vid­ual and team suc­cess.”

Five Perth Glory play­ers also vis­ited Pat Goodridge Re­serve to watch the games and speak to stu­dent helpers and play­ers.
