Cooks U-16 Women Development Tour

After a well deserved break, the development squad underwent their first training session for this year earlier this week on Monday at the CIFA complex in Matavera. The second training session is scheduled to take place tomorrow, Thursday 30th January at the CIFA complex in Matavera.
To get his squad ready, Head Coach Tahiri Elikana is seeking to gear up his players by leaving the home comforts behind for their first international friendly matches.
“Getting any overseas experience is one of the main objectives for this trip and certainly something we see as of major importance before heading to New Zealand,” Elikana says.
“For some players it will be their first tour outside of the Cook Islands and we believe that our side will play to the best of their abilities,” says Elikana.
This development tour is part of CIFA’s long term development plan for the preparation and development for future international events.
The players in the development squad were drafted mainly from clubs around Rarotonga and the outer islands.
