SSFA in the FNSW Champion of Champions tournament
SSFA PREPARE FOR BUSY CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS WITH SEVEN CLUB ENTRANTS
In an amazing achievement, the Sutherland Shire Football Association will have seven club representatives flying their flag at this Sunday’s Champion of Champions Finals at Valentine Sports Park – the most from any Association in NSW.
Lilli Pilli FC (13 Girls), Bosco FC (16 Boys), Grays Point SC (18 Men), Cronulla Seagulls FC (21 Men), Como Jannali SC (O35 Mens), Loftus Yarrawarrah Rovers FC (O30 Women) and Engadine Eagles FC (18 Women) will all compete in NSW’s most prestigious grassroots knockout competition.
The SSFA itself has had a busy year with over 19,391 players registered amongst 1,572 teams, it’s little wonder the Association has seen the successes of the clubs mentioned as part of the Shire’s push for dominating the grassroots game.
“Whilst the SSFA has always been well represented at this prestigious tournament, it is a great achievement by our Member Clubs that we have a record 7 teams competing this Sunday,” said Sutherland Shire FA Treasurer Giulio di Stefano.
“The SSFA has been very proactive in the conducting both coaching and player courses which has helped in achieving this record.
“The Football NSW Champion of Champion tournament allows teams from all associations to compete against each other to determine the best team in their respective competition and the clubs recognise this as the pinnacle of their season.
“The SSFA is proud to see that we have 7 different clubs involved the in the Champion of Champions finals this Sunday – and whilst some of our bigger clubs have teams involved, Engadine Eagles, Bosco, Lilli Pilli and Cronulla Seagulls, we are also well represented by our smaller clubs like Grays Point, Como Jannali, and Loftus Yarrawarrah.”
Asked whether the Association was set to embark on any new initiatives, di Stefano stated the importance of its Coach Education courses as well as academies.
