Launceston United invited local kids down to join in their ALDI MiniRoos at their recent Grassroots Festival and had over 90 eager youngsters turn up ready to play football.
Members of Launceston United’s youth and senior womens’ teams, as well as parents, took on the role of Game Leaders to ensure all of children could join in the fun.
The kids took part in juggling competitions, played fooball and attempted to record personal bests on the ALDI MiniRoos Chipping Challenge.
Football Federation Tasmania were on hand to ensure the Festival went with a bang.
Launceston United Female Development Officer, Jan van Asch, said: “The festival exceeded my wildest dreams.
“The number of children who turned up was fantastic. I didn't think we'd get so many. They loved the Chipping Challenge and all of the different activities.”
“They have all said they had an absolute ball. They are already asking when the next one will be.”
