Yass Redbacks host successful Open Day

On Saturday February 9, the Yass Redbacks held their annual Open Day for junior soccer registrations at Walker Park.

This is the second year running that the Redbacks have held registrations for their junior players, and with over 200 children signed up, this year was arguably a bigger success than 2018 when roughly 180 children registered.

There were plenty of attractions on offer with which the kids could amuse themselves while parents were signing up, including a sausage sizzle, giveaways, target-based games, face painting, a jumping castle, and the opportunity to try on their new kits. 

As the club neared the end of the Open Day, a post on its Facebook page said that it had been a "fantastic" day.

For those who were unable to take part on Saturday, registrations are open until Sunday February 17, and today the Redbacks will host an additional sign-up session at Walker Park from 5.00pm-6.30pm. 

There are still spots open in the Under 18s, Under 16s, Under 15s, Under 13s, and a smattering in the Under 11s and Under 8s, so any children who are interested are encouraged to sign up.
