The Richard Hawkes and Kim Lam Tournaments continued this week giving great opportunities for our players to compete against other clubs. For U12 boys, an incredibly improved showing from the previous Rounds and the boys were very excited (as were parents) to see the success the team were having.

HKFC was the venue for the U12 Girls last Sunday where the Valley Fort Teams competed in every game. This was a terrific performance from all the players and coaching staff and managers who have put so much time and effort into the development of these girls and their skills.

Valley Fort hosted a number of other clubs at Happy Valley for our U5’s who loved the interactions with other players and not to mention a showing from the big man (Father Christmas) himself! Well done to Mike Iannini, our U5 head coach, along with Nick Carlsen for leading and organising this.

The remainder of our minis, both contact and non- contact continued their weekly training sessions at Hong Kong International School, Aberdeen and Happy Valley. The final session this Sunday may also include a surprise visit for the younger ones. I have it on good authority a special visitor will be dropping by a couple of the venues.

A huge thanks to all involved with the Minis program so far this year. 2022 will be a great year of further development and competition which hopefully will see a return to Friday Night training for our contact Minis. More on this in the New Year.

Enjoy the break and family time.

Merry Christmas.
