Mullmbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club is excited to announce the establishment of a new Football 4 All program specifically catering for young boys and girls who live with special needs or a disability. 

The program aims to provide players and their families with a supportive and inclusive environment that gives every player the opportunity to maximise their potential and to enjoy playing non-competitive football at a community-based club. 

The program will run every Sunday morning from 10am to 11am, during the winter football season. A parent/carer must be present at each session. 

Players who would like to join the All Stars team need to register and attend ‘come and try’ days in February 2020. 

‘It is essential that every potential player that wants to join a team attends these days,’ project coordinator Sharon Scriven said. ‘The club will have specialist coaches at these sessions, and they will assess each player so they can be put into a team that suits them best.’

Team selection will be based on a range of factors to ensure all players in each team work well together and that every player enjoys their football experience. 

To register for the ‘come and try’ days, please complete the application form (available from the MBVFC website www.mbvfc.com.au) and email it to [email protected] For more information, please contact the project co-ordinator, Sharon Scriven, on 0435 057463. It is essential that you register in advance for the ‘come and try days’ so that the club can cater for player numbers.
