The Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club ran a series of soccer clinics over the school holidays with coaches from Brisbane and Germany.

On the first week of the break, the club hosted the German Soccer School, who brought out a team of coaches along with all of their equipment to run some high-intensity skills training camps for kids.

The sessions, which ran for seven hours each day at the Pine Avenue fields, were the first-ever camps held in Australia by the German Soccer School, who have been running for 12 years in Dusseldorf.

The week’s camp was fully subscribed, by kids who were eager to learn what the coaches had to bring from across the oceans.But there was still more for the local kids when last Thursday and Friday, the Brisbane Roar soccer club are ran their highly acclaimed Roar Active Holiday Clinics also at Pine Ave.

Brisbane Roar ran three classes over the clinic – a two-day all-inclusive program for 6–11-year-olds, a short class for ‘Roar Cub’, 3–5-year-olds, and a special all-girls session.

This program is the start of a commitment to an ongoing relationship between MBVFC and the Brisbane Roar, which both clubs hope will lead to mutually beneficial outcomes for both the community and players.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
