Girls Futsal Festival

[loop-news.php]

February 22 2017

On Tuesday 6 teams of Year 4-6 girls from Tawhai School went to Walter Nash Stadium to take part in a Girls only Futsal Festival organised by Capital Football-Girls and Women. There were lots of awesome goals, competitive tackling and tremendous passing. Everyone had a lots of fun!
They were fortunate in meeting and receiving signed posters and cards from two inspirational footballers, Sarah Gregorius and Katie Barrott. Sarah, who has just recently retired from International football, earning 82 caps for the Football Ferns as well as scoring 25 goals for them. She also made two World Cup appearances and has played at the Olympics. Katie has been a New Zealand age group representative and has been in the National U20’s squad, she has also been in the Wellington National Women’s league team for 3 years.
It was great to see girls of all abilities giving it a go!
Thank you to the parents who transported the girls to the stadium and looked after them during the day.
