Thirteen students inducted into Tweed Youth Council

The Youth Council program hopes develop better relations between Council and Tweed’s young people, by encouraging a mutual respect, and providing opportunities to contribute to civic life in a constructive and meaningful manner.

The AIS/FFA football program is renowned for producing the Socceroos of the future and Anthony Kalik is no exception.

The 15-year-old midfielder made A-League history in August, becoming the youngest player to sign a senior contract joining the Central Coast Mariners.

Kalik was spotted in December 2012 playing for the New South Wales Institute of Sport in its annual Institute Challenge.

He was offered a place in the 2013 AIS football program by coach Tony Vidmar.

The AIS/FFA program specifically supports the preparation of players for selection for the FFA’s national under-17s side, the Joeys.

Since 2012, it has developed into a homestay program, where the players stay with families and attend local schools rather than live in the AIS residences.

Kalik and fellow AIS scholarship holder Liam Rose, who has also signed with the Mariners, will join the club in March 2014.
