Female participation officer Holly Ayton gives the MBVFC girls a training talk at training last week.

This football season marks the first ever that girls-only MiniRoos leagues (4–11-year- olds) have been made available by Football Far North Coast for the area and Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC are delighted to have three participating teams.

‘It’s a clear indication of the rising popularity of football for girls and is definitely something to celebrate,’ club secretary Shane Creek said.

‘The establishment of girls’ leagues in this early-age group will also increase playing opportunities in future junior grades, something that has been difficult in our region owing to low participation numbers’. 

As part of the development of Miniroos Holly Ayton, the local female football participation officer, joined in to help coach Mullum’s all-girl MiniRoos teams at their training session at Pine Avenue.

The girls had heaps of fun and the coaches learnt some great new drills. Holly then spent a few days visiting other clubs, running coaching courses and attending all-girl MiniRoos games.  

MBVFC has doubled its female players in the last three seasons and they now represent almost a third of the total club membership!

Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
