Futsal Girls Urged to Attend Training

Members of previous U16 Girls futsal squad are urged to turn up at Lawson Tama on Wednesday 3pm for briefing and training.

Small sided Games Development Officer, Victor Wai'ia says it is important that all players attend this session.

The visiting OFC Futsal Development officer, Scott Gilligan will conduct the session for the girls with assistance from Wai'ia.

Meanwhile, futsal will fly Solomon Islands flag again when teams from Oceania converge in Fiji from May 23 to 30 to compete for the OFC Futsal Championship Cup.

The Solomons will be represented by the Kurukuru team. Wai'ia said training has started and he hopes to finalize a team soon to represent the country in the tournament.

Solomon Islands are highly rated in the region following its successes at the OFC futsal qualifiers in Fiji last year and its participation at the Futsal World Cup in Brazil.

However, Wai'ia is taking no chances saying he has to prepare a strong side to defend the country's status.

Tahiti and Vanuatu are expected to give the young Kurukuru's a run for their money at this competition.
