Tremendous interest in the sport says CQFC Energy coach

IT HAS been a very busy week on all fronts at CQFC and we are all working away very hard in the background preparing for the start of the new NPL season and also the start of our junior and mini academies.

I will start with reports from a great weekend down at Norbridge Park which commenced with the Junior Presentation day on Saturday.

I was amazed by the number of girls and boys participating during the morning.

There were more than 600 children participating during the course of the morning.

I was told when I first arrived in CQ by a few people that there weren't many children playing football in the area.

Well, I disagree after what I have seen over the past few weeks.

It was great to see so many smiling faces at the park and I would just like to say a big thank you to all the workers and volunteers at Norbridge Park who make this possible for the children week in and week out.

The second part of my weekend was spent again at Norbridge Park watching the Tri Series between Rockhampton, Gladstone and Biloela on Sunday.

Again, it was so inspiring to see so many people there enjoying the games.

There were about 33 fixtures across many age groups with the girls and boys participating, representing their local town.

It was a great day and it was very helpful for me to meet so many of the coaches from other areas of CQ.

The day was put together by many parties, but in particular a big thank you needs to go out to Brett Kelly who headed up the original plans to get the Tri Series going again after an absence of nearly four years.

During the weekend we started to advertise for places for our Mini Academy (5-10yrs) and Junior Academy (11-16yrs) for both girls and boys at Norbridge Park.

We have had a great response already and if you would like your daughter or son to be developed to be the next Matilda or Socceroo then please contact us at office@cqfc.com.au to reserve a place.
