The Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) Women’s Development Officer has called on the National U-17 Select Squad to attend their bi-weekly training sessions starting this Thursday 21st January.
This is to prepare for the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) U-17 Women’s Championship in April.
The names of the U-17 Select Squad players have been announced over the local radio last week and the squad consists of both the Honiara and provincial based players.
The selection was conducted by the Technical Panel during the Our Telekom Solomon Cup tournament in November last year. The Select Squad of 40 will be trimmed down to only 25 players after the trials are conducted.
According to Ms. Justus the team will be holding two training sessions per week for this month and in February. More intensive training will begin in March and the weeks leading up to the tournament. The weekly training days are Tuesday and Thursday and the training sessions will start at 3:00pm and end at 4:00pm.
At this stage training will be conducted by Ms. Justus till a management team including a coach are appointed at a later date to look after the teams preparations.
All players are expected to bring their own playing gear including boots, shin pads and socks to training sessions.
Ms. Justus is also appealing to the training squad members to ensure that they arrive on time for training to ensure that 3pm – 4pm training duration is followed.
The OFC U-17 Women’s Championship (April) and the OFC Women’s Nations Cup (October) will be the two regional competitions that Solomon Islands participate in for this year. The Senior National Women’s Team will be selected later in the year.
