Hedland Junior Soccer Association started its first round of games last Sunday.

The competition consists of under-5s and under-7s, who take part in drills and play a short game on Friday afternoons.

In addition, there are under-nines, under-11s, under-13s, and under-15s who train during the week and play a game on Friday nights.

The association will have more than 200 players registered for this year’s season, which, according to committee member Laura Hawes, is a good increase on previous years.

“It’s great to see so many kids signing up and giving a new sport a shot,” she said.

Port Hedland is hosting an inter-town competition in July, which will include teams from Broome, Karratha, Tom Price and Newman.

The committee is looking forward to another fantastic season.

“Soccer is a great way for our children to stay active, and have lots of fun,” Hawes said.
