All Abilities Soccer Gala Day

It was a fun and successful day for all schools and adult teams that participated in the All Abilities Soccer Gala Day on Friday 22nd June at the South Wangaratta Reserve.

The adults competition featured teams from Connect GV, Mitchell Rangers FC, and PALS. Connect GV and Mitchell Rangers FC played out a thrilling final, with Connect GV taking the honours.

The schools competition featured teams from Wangaratta District Specialist School (WDSS), Belvoir Special School, and Cobram Special School. At the end of the competitive but friendly matches, WDSS 1 emerged on top of the table.

Organised by Valley Sport and Sport North East, we could not have had such a great day without invaluable support from:
Wangaratta City Football Club
Murray United Football Club
Atila from Football Federation Victoria
Galen Catholic College
And of course all of the players, teachers, friends and family who travelled to participate. Thank you and congratulations to everyone involved.

Seeking Clubs for our School Holiday Program

School holiday program

School holiday program

The Winter School Holiday Program will be held in the first two weeks of July 2018. We are currently seeking interest from sports clubs in delivering a one-off 90 minute session to primary school-aged children as part of the School Holiday Program. The program will be held in Tallangatta, Wodonga and Wangaratta. Sessions commence at 10am to 11:30am in Wangaratta and Wodonga, with a one-day session with three sports planned for Tallangatta between 9:30am – 3pm.

The benefits for sports clubs can be promoting their club to the participating children and their parents, which can lead to increased engagement and membership for their club.

If your club is interested in delivering a session for our School Holiday Program, speak to a Sport North East Project Coordinator today.
