SHOALCOAST Community Legal held their second Koori Touch Football Competition at Lyrebird Park on Wednesday last week.
The idea behind the event was to bring service providers together with the Aboriginal community and build relationships in an informal way, by playing footy.
A total of 12 teams participated in the competition, with some of the service providers entering teams, while others entered their own.
Shoalcoast, Legal Aid, Aboriginal Medical Service, Oolong House, Waminda Headspace, Department of Health, PCYC and the police were all involved in the day, either by entering a team or setting up a stall.
The event was purposely run during the school holidays so kids could participate and there was a good mix of players of different ages, with boys, girls, men and women all participating alongside each other.
The honours for the day went to the team Booga’s Boys, who defeated South Coast Bombers in the final 7-4.
