Prizes galore as 2016 FFAS Summer League ends

“This is one of our most popular competitions of the year because of the age groups involved and also, because of prizes,” explained FFAS President, Faiivae Iuli Alex Godinet. “Thank you to all the clubs and especially the parents and players for participating in this league.
“I want to also thank our Summer Youth League sponsors, GHC Reid and their product Vaimalu and also Island Cargo Support (ICS),” Faiivae thanked.
GHC Reid helped provide cases of Vaimalu water on the last day of the competition while ICS shipped for free the prizes that included school supplies for the 5-8 and 9-11 age groups such as back packs, No. 2 pencils, calculators, to name a few.
“When we asked ICS for the bill to our shipment and they learned it was for the kids, they just said no charge,” explained FFAS CEO Tavita Taumua. “We are very thankful to them for that generous gift in shipping down our goods for free, and as a result all the 5-8 and 9-11 children are prepared for the new school year with note books, pencils and especially for the younger ones, coloring books to occupy their time.”
The competition was non-competitive, meaning records of wins and losses were not recorded and all teams were called winners.
FFAS also provided each team with a box of assorted chips and a case of Powerade, from the ages 5-11 all the way up to the 15-17 squads.
The teams that competed in the 5-8 age group were Faga’alu Green Bay, Ilaoa & To’omata, Lion Heart, Pago Youth, PanSa, Royal Puma, Tafuna Jets and Utulei Youth.
12 teams competed in the 9-11 division, and they were Green Bay, Ilaoa & To’omata 1 & 2, Pago Youth, PanSa 1, 2 & 3, Royal Puma, Sepps Jets, So. Pac Jets, Tafuna Jets and Vaiala Tongan.
The 5-8 and 9-11 age groups are mixed while the older divisions, Boys 12-14, Boys and Girls 15-17 are separated with playoffs for each division (see separate story).
