FFAS presidents approve national teams’ progress

“I’m very happy with the outcome of this meeting and thank all of our club presidents for their support of our national teams,” explained Iuli. “Their support and understanding is very crucial especially with their influences on our national team players.”
The presidents were updated on men and women’s training for the 2011 Pacific Games New Caledonia.
“I am happy to inform you all that the training has been going on without a hitch,” Iuli explained to the club leaders. “We are hoping for your stamp of approval for our teams currently preparing for this upcoming tournament.”
Discussion went back and forth between the club presidents and Iuli with all making several suggestions about how to improve the squads such as entering both teams into the National League. The idea gained momentum and after giving it their backing, Iuli said it was a great idea and that they will discuss it again in detail before the kickoff of the competition.
“I could not have asked for more after they gave their stamp of approval,” Iuli said.
Other matters discussed in the meeting were the upcoming Summer Youth League and the kickoff of the FFAS national leagues.
“We are proposing that we use two venues for the summer competition, here in Pago Pago and Kananafou,” Taumua said to the clubs. “This is for the transportation convenience of our clubs on both sides of the island but we will only do this if we have enough teams to separate the competition.”
Team nomination forms were handed out for the age groups: 6-8 mixed, boys and girls’ 9-11, boys and girls’ 12-14 and boys and girls’ 15-17.
As for the start of the men and women’s national league, all club leaders voted to kickoff after the teams return from the Pacific Games, which puts the beginning at the end of September.
Iuli also briefed them on the FFAS delegation (Iuli, Taumua and Rev. Ioane Evagelia) to Zurich, Switzerland for the FIFA Congress.
