FIDA Seagulls set to fly

The Williamstown FIDA Seagulls kick off their 2014 season with away games against Wyndham on Sunday 6 April.

The Seagulls’ senior team were runners-up last year in Division 1, while Wyndham won the Division 2 flag.

“The emphasis in FIDA games is more on participation and improving rather than on winning,” said Williamstown president and coach Rob Klemm.

“The first round at Wyndham will be a good measure of how we’ll go this year.”

Rob, assistant principal at Rosamond Special School, does the match-day coaching and leaves the Wednesday training sessions to coaches from Williamstown SuperRules.

“We have tremendous support from all of the other football clubs and football organisations in Williamstown,” he said.

The games on Sunday 6 April are at Warringa Crescent Reserve, Hoppers Crossing. The senior game starts at 11.00 and the reserves at 12.30.

Williamstown’s first home game, at Fearon Reserve (also home ground of Willi CYs) will be on Sunday 27 April against 2013 Division 1 premiers, North Ballarat.

FIDA is the Football Integration Development Association,  a league for footballers with intellectual disabilities.
