The Brisbane Roar are streets ahead of the competition in the A league, and Noosa Lions are aiming to do the same thing in the local Junior and Senior Competitions in 2014.  For the second year in a row about 100 players recently benefited from the Roar’s winning ways through Brisbane Roar coaching clinics.

Incoming Noosa Lions President Brian Stockwell said “the sessions targeted junior boys, girls and women. We have put down a good foundation in women’s and girls’ soccer and our aim is to strengthen that in 2014 as part of the club’s development plan .”  

The club has a target to increase the number of female teams this year and for the first time they are aiming to field all girl teams in the U 11, U13, U15 and U17/senior age groups.  

We need more players to reach our target and we are holding special two ‘try out’ sessions for girls 11 years and older.  Sessions start at 5:00pm on Tuesday (11th) and Thursday (13th) next week. I encourage girls looking for a challenge and a fun way to keep fit with friends, and those that have played before, to take the opportunity to come along to the free try out session and to bring a friend.” Mr Stockwell  said. 

Last year was one of the Club’s most successful in the junior competitive age groups with five teams getting to the finals and the Under 12s and 14s winning the first division grand finals.  The over 35s also took out the major gong for 2013.  This year we would like to see at least one  female team added to that list.

The club caters for players from the Under 6 Mini Roos to the over 35’s. Prospective players can sign on this Saturday and Sunday morning at the Girraween Sporting Complex on Eenie Creek Rd.  

The club this week welcomed the Tewantin Noosa RSL Club as a major sponsor of the junior competition, and will soon be announcing a new Gold Sponsor for the Senior Men’s teams.
