Byron keeps soccer kicking along for girls over Summer
ALTHOUGH the winter soccer season is now done and dusted, the girls in Byron Shire won't be hanging up their boots just yet.
A variety of programs catering for players of all ages and skill levels are running over the summer to keep the girls kicking along over summer.
For the first time, Football Far North Coast (FFNC) is introducing a female summer youth league competition, providing a great opportunity for the shire's rising youth stars to step up to the next level.
With Byron Bay, Bangalow and Mullumbimby soccer clubs all entering teams in the competition, the shire is well represented in female participation.
With a view to encouraging girls in the younger age groups as well, an all-girls Mini-Roos training program will run again at the Byron Recreation Grounds throughout summer.
The program is aimed at girls from 5 to 11 and caters for both new and experienced players.
Coaching is provided by some of the shire's best young female players, with a focus on fun and skills development.
Byron Bay FC is also running an introductory program for girls aged 12-14 with a focus on fitness, fun and just giving soccer a go.
Once they've tried it, they won't look back.
