Primary School tourney ready to roll

The annual Primary School Round Robin Soccer competition for Year 7 & 8 (Forms 1 & 2) senior students will kick off on Wednesday 6th March 2013 at the CIFA Complex, Matavera from 2.50pm and it has seen its fair share of competitive football action since it first kicked off in 2010.
Participating schools are Avarua, Arorangi, Nukutere, Avatea, Te Uki Ou, Imanuela Akatemia, Papaaroa, Titikaveka and Nikao will battle it out on the field in both girls and boys division to see who will have bragging rights in this year’s Primary School Soccer Tournament.
Both the boys and girls divisions schools are split into two groups where they will play each school team to determine which school will go through to the play offs before heading to the finals to settle out the winner.
The CIFA technical department Tuka Tisam, Tahiri Elikana and Anthony Samuel have visited all the participating school for the duration of five weeks, coaching and polishing their football skills in preparation for the annual tournament.
“The students are excited that they will finally get to show and play against their peers next week,” says Tuka Tisam.
“This annual competition will give us (technical department) the opportunity to select players to participate in our development programs that we will be coordinating later in the year,” he says.
Avarua School won the first Senior Primary School Soccer Competition in the boys and girls division when it first kicked off in 2009 while Nikao primary school confidently stole the title in 2010 in the senior boys division and Avarua senior girls making it a double for their school.
The 2012 Senior Boys winner, Avatea posted a 3-1 win over combined school Te Uki Ou/Imanuela in the finale while first time winner Arorangi Senior Girl’s also claimed the 2012 Senior Girl’s trophy after defeating two time champions Avarua by three goals to two in an exciting match.
The vocal support from teachers, parents and supporters will certainly boost the student’s confidence and also encourages them to win.
