The Mullumbimby six-a-side junior soccer competition is open to new players and ready to kick off on Wednesday October 16.

‘This is a fun social mixed boys and girls comp for kids aged 7-13, or there abouts, to keep them fit and engaged with sport over the summer soccer break,’ organiser Yari McGauley said.

Last year, over 200 children competed. Teams need six to 10 players.

Each side plays three 18-minute games between 5-7.30pm on Wednesdays and the competition runs for eight weeks till December.

There is a canteen providing proper meals for adults (curries, rice, pasta) which changes each week.
