Fun, fitness and friendship on offer
STAYING active over the off-season is a top priority for the Biloela Valleys thanks to a social competition.
A social 6 a-side soccer got underway last Thursday night at Valleys FC on Rainbow Street with 19 teams competing.
Biloela Valleys Treasurer Dee-Anne Radke said that this social competition is a great option for anyone looking to find a sport in the summer months.
“It’s to keep people active in the off-season and more importantly to provide a social competition where people can have fun and meet new people,” Radke said.
“The rules are limited to be social, learn the game and have fun which is greats as most of the sports in Biloela are winter sports.
“We first started four years ago and the response this year, we’ve had more teams this year than we’ve had previously.”
The season will run for 10 weeks with the grand final set to be played on December 7 before school holidays start.
Due to the number of teams and nominations, teams may have to play two 30 minute games a night.
“We have a few new teams with some younger youth players and a team from Moura so we need to make sure they aren’t travelling to late at night getting home,” Radke said.
“They’ll be a canteen and bar operating and we will have club coaches and committee volunteers to umpire games.
Although nominations for teams have closed, Radke encourages interested players to come down and help fill the slots of teams missing a player or two.
Kick-off is 6pm from Valleys FC on Rainbow Street.
