There will be an intercommunity football game at Laramba with Yuelamu travelling to attend on Thursday 15 April, as part of the school holiday program run by Youth, Sport and Recreation (YSR) at Central Desert Regional Council (CDRC). It is expected an under 16 game will start from 12pm.
“There is a strong and passionate rivalry between the two communities and this game will be a great activity for the kids in the school holidays,” said Aaron Tannahill, YSR Operations Coordinator for CDRC. A barbecue lunch will be provided to allow teams to talk and build on relationships.
CDRC are running their school holiday program in the five communities that CDRC YSR service. They will be running a mixture of arts and craft, gymnastics, pool (snooker), basketball, softball, football, soccer, volleyball, discos and more.
The school holiday programs run from 13-17 April.
