Junior Festival and Youth Championships 2016
The 2016 Junior & Youth Futsal National Champs is fast approaching and with that in mind, we would like to invite potential candidates to send in their applications for the coaching positions.
This year the event has been moved from Wellington to Palmerston North, therefore due to the change we have had to accelerate our time frame in preparation for the National tournament, primarily to have squads finalised so fundraising to reduce costs can begin.
The competition will be held during the 2nd week of the July School Holidays (July 15th, 16th and 17th)
Trials were held on April 1st an 3rd and saw a number of your aspiring Futsal players turn out over the two trial days.

Junior & Youth Trials
As stated above, the 2016 tournament will be held in Palmerston North, moving from from Wellington and will be held from July 15th-17th.
This change has meant an increase in cost so we have moved our trial dates forward to allow more time for fundraising, to book cheaper flights etc to reduce the cost as much as possible.
