No matter your age, this might be the club for you.CHALPAT SONTI April 2, 2014 4:02am
Calling all potential soccer players — Mitchell Rangers wants you.
The Broadford-based outfit is the only soccer club in the Telegraph’s circulation area and its season started on Saturday with home games at its grounds at Broadford Secondary College.
But before the older players kicked off, it was time for MiniRoos, a soccer program for five to seven year-olds.
The program had an enthusiastic group of children, but there is room for plenty more. Held on Saturday mornings from 10
There are two coaches — Paul Whitfield and Paul Sirriani — and they teach players all the skills of the game. Soccer starts its competitive games earlier than other sports, with an under-8 grade.
‘‘Hopefully they all know each other by then and they’ll move through the grades together,’’ Mitchell Rangers president Mark Williams said.
Cost for MiniRoos is $70 for the season, which includes insurance and a Little Ranger T-shirt. Players must bring their own shin pads (which are compulsory) and sneakers should suffice for footwear until the ground gets wetter in winter.
Williams is also keen for older players for all grades, more coaches, and more women so a team in that grade can get up and running again.
‘‘We’ve got about six girls who are keen and it would be great to get a team again,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s an open competition so they can be 14, 16, in their 20s or whatever. But basically we’re after anyone who wants to play. Goalkeepers especially, they can be hard to come by, and a reserves coach as well.’’
