Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - JOIN A CLUB -

IF you are seek­ing an ac­tive sport with a fam­ily friendly en­vi­ron­ment, team build­ing skills and ball skills, then Dou­glas United Foot­ball Club may be the club for you.

Dou­glas United Foot­ball Club of­fers a range of dif­fer­ent lev­els for ju­nior play­ers, aimed at pro­vid­ing a pro­gres­sive path to ex­cel in the game from three years of age.

The most ba­sic en­try level is the "Squirts" and is aimed at 3-4 year olds. Squirts pro­vides a fun play and learn en­vi­ron­ment with one hour per week of ac­tiv­i­ties that are de­signed to help as­sist with con­cen­tra­tion, co­or­di­na­tion and bal­ance.

‘‘MiniRoos’’ is aimed at 5-11 year olds and in­tro­duces the sport with age ap­pro­pri­ate foot­ball rules for this age group of boys and girls.

It aims to be non- con­tact and non­com­pet­i­tive with pro­gres­sively sized fields and com­pe­ti­tion rules as the child ma­tures with the game.

Train­ing ses­sions for ju­niors take place Thurs­day af­ter­noons from 5-6pm, with Satur­day games for match prac­tice.

But this ex­cit­ing game is not just for the lit­tle ones. Dou­glas United also prides it­self on its se­nior teams, with our Premier team win­ning the Grand Fi­nal in 2012, run­ners-up in 2013, and win­ners of the inau­gu­ral FNQ Cup in 2013. Our Premier Re­serve team was also very suc­cess­ful, mak­ing it to the Pre­lim­i­nary Fi­nals in 2013. 2014 sees the se­niors field­ing Premier and Premier Re­serve teams once again.

The club is also look­ing to create a lo­cal so­cial com­pe­ti­tion for youth aged 12-15 years, with a view to these play­ers even­tu­ally pro­gress­ing to the se­nior ranks at Dou­glas United.

The club’s Ju­nior Sign-on will take place on Fe­bru­ary 20th, from 5pm at the club grounds. Any new play­ers in­ter­ested in join­ing the se­nior ranks are asked to con­tact Lo­gan Marsh on 0404 328816. Come along and make the Dragons your team in 2014!!
