HUNDREDS OF JUNIORS IN COFFS FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT

Hundreds of young football players from across Northern New South Wales have been in Coffs Harbour over the weekend, taking part in the boys state championships.

The 11 and 12-year-olds have been focusing on skills development and received some expert coaching, all while competing against some of the state’s best junior players.

“they get to play in a very well organised tournament at a fantastic venue, obviously that in itself is very rewarding for them, very satisfying” (ends: very satisfying, runs: 13 secs)

There was a big emphasis on encouraging young players to play possession-based football as opposed to simply looking to win games.
