United Reds Football Carnival
The United Reds Football Carnival took place on 11 April 2021 and was a great success.
Participating clubs in the United Reds Football League were invited to field a team. Teams consisted of children with and without disabilities in a morning of clinics run by Football West coaches and carnival-style football. Representatives from the Perth Glory Woman’s team attended and were put to work signing autographs and interacting with participants throughout the day.
Around 40 children played in the tournament with over 100 people in attendance including Football West, Inclusion Solutions, clubs involved, parents and volunteers. The real stats of the day were the kids and the way everyone played in the spirit of Fun, Fairness, Inclusion & Respect, the values of the United Reds Football League.
“It was the most inclusive environment I have ever been a part of. Thank you”
Football West Represenative
For many children, this was the first time they had played soccer and been involved in carnival football. There were some tired legs at the end of the day, however, there were even bigger smiles.
Congratulations to all involved. The United Reds Football League starts on 2 May. Matches are played fortnightly with weekly training. Please contact your local club to get involved. Teams consist of children with and without disabilities aged 8 – 12 years old. This is a great opportunity for kids to build confidence, develop skill and play in a friendly environment while representing their club.
