Arana Touch is very proud of the seven teams who participated in the 2017 Junior State Cup in Hervey Bay from 6th to 8th July.
Our teams play against some very strong associations who are well established and are made up of players from large regional cities/towns.
Overall we had nine wins and two draws. U14 Boys had four wins and three losses, narrowly missed making quarter final.
What a great eye opener to the skill level in Queensland. Contending with bigger and older touch football associations, our club Arana competed with improvement throughout the carnival. The girls were a bit nervous to start the competition as the opposition came out hard and fast, providing insight into the high levels of touch that are present at this level.
As the carnival progressed the girls got more confident and picked up their intensity providing a more competitive environment. Although the carnival is very competitive it still provides a positive environment for all players, as the club bonding opportunities both, at the ground and at the accommodation added to the kids enjoyment.
Special thanks goes to our coaches, managers and parents for the effort and enthusiasm they showed our players, we couldn’t have done it without them. Also to all our referees, as we cannot enter teams in these events without a referee per team.
