31 Aug Solidarjeta bl-Isports Football Event 2017
Further to last Saturday’s YFA Seminar where we launched the date of this year’s football event in aid of Istrina, please note some the salient points:
- This year’s football event is scheduled for Sunday 26th November 2017 (morning). No YFA Fixtures will be given on that morning. Nurseries are being asked to think of and/or prepare some ideas for improvement upon last year which we will discuss during a meeting being scheduled for nurseries. Ideally all nurseries make a collective effort on this event.
- Nurseries will be receiving an official invite from the Office of the President to attend a nurseries meeting towards beginning of October 2017. Your attendance to this meeting is of utmost importance as the way forward will be discussed on the day.
- As announced, this year we introduced a new initiative as we want the young players (up to 12-13 years) to be protagonists from the very start of the event. They are being invited to participate in a picture competition. The theme is: what are their thoughts and ideas when we speak of “Solidarity through football” – let them express themselves and be creative through the eyes of a child. We’d be glad to receive pictures drawn by hand rather than designed by software programmes. Eventually the selected picture will feature on this year’s football event poster. In this regard we need the nurseries’ assistance to promote this initiative, collect the pictures/drawings and submit to YFA Office. Details to be included at the back of each picture are: Name & Surname of player, Date of birth and the Nursery s/he attends. Further to some requests, the deadline to submit pictures is being extended to Thursday 28th September. Submissions are to be delivered to the YFA’s Office to the attention of Stephanie Rocco. Should you wish to send scanned copies you may also do so by sending email on firstname.lastname@example.org by deadline. However, you are still required to deliver the originals to the YFA Office. Every effort is being made so that the winning picture will be awarded a prize.
Whilst thanking you once again for supporting last year’s event, we look forward to make this year’s football event another success – let’s get all nurseries together for a good cause – F’idejkom!!
