Preseason training about to kick off

KORUMBURRA City Soccer Club will be kicking off its pre season training this week, with the seniors starting training at the rec centre for the next few weeks until our ground becomes available.
Coach Rory Cull said, “It’s always exciting to get pre-season started, we’ll begin with indoor training at the rec centre for a few weeks, it will be a mix of fitness training and game play. I invite any returning players to head down on Thursdays from 6.30pm and also anyone is interested in joining our club.”
This season, Korumburra City Soccer Club is hoping to carry on building from last season and are hoping to be pushing for finals in both the men’s and women’s competition, and to continue the growth within the junior ranks which last year saw the U12s reach the grand final.
Junior (ages 11 – 16) will be starting pre-season training towards the end of February with the Miniroos (aged U10) starting training in early March.
The Miniroos teams will have their first competition on March 24 at Drouin with a Gala Day involving many of the local teams.
The club is continuing to work with the Shire towards their change room redevelopment and hopefully the plans will be finalised soon.
Off the field the committee has been working hard to purchase club owned kits, so reducing the costs involved for players and their families.
Simon Brady, club secretary, said; “As a club, we were successful in applying for several grants last season, we also worked hard with our fundraising and social events, which have all helped the club. This season we will continue the hard work in raising more funds to be reinvested in the club. Our first fundraising event will be running the canteen at the Korumburra Show. We are always on the look-out for any local businesses that would like to sponsor our growing club.”
