FFAS holds a Girls Festival

“It was a great festival for the girls and they thoroughly enjoyed it,” explained FFAS vice-president, and Head of Women’s Soccer Committee, Sandra Fruean. “Sports will draw a lot of boys and this festival aims at doing just that for the girls, drawing them in to our sport.
“This festival is one major component in kick-starting developing soccer for our all female youths in out territory,” Fruean continued. “And we plan to have several more before the year is out. Unfortunately we did not get the numbers we were targeting but sometimes it is good to start small on build on that.”
“There were a lot of activities over the weekend involving the girls of this age group and I believe that is why we had this small number,” said Amio Mavaega-Luvu, a member of the FFAS executive and women’s committees. “Otherwise I believe we would have had a lot of girls participate.
“But don’t worry we are planning more festivals for girls and will announce the dates in the radio and newspapers once we have firmed those up.”
Ursula Te’o-Martin helped start the day off with a 10-minute, sports-warm up routine that had all the participants fired up for the festival.
