A unique football development initiative has been started and carried out by two TSL clubs Marist FC and West Honiara for the first time to promote football and physical education while encouraging community involvement and healthy living. Marist FC and West Honiara are organising games for young children U-8, U-10 and U-12 every Saturday morning at West Honiara soccer field. The program objective is to see children aged 7-12 to participate in properly organised football coaching session which can be played anywhere. The main idea is to develop and nurture young people on physical/emotional health and building valuable social connections which offers opportunities for young children to participate in football.
Marist and west Honiara are committed to grow football at community and school level, the initiative has already proven a success for both clubs.
