Following the huge success over the last 6 years we are pleased to invite all footballers registered in Under 14’s to participate in the St Mary’s “Footy Retreat” overnight camp, again to be hosted at Cottage by the Sea, Queenscliff.
This is a wonderful opportunity for the boys to spend a weekend away from the club mid-season with coaches, club representatives and team mates to help promote teamwork, foster relationships, hone skills, but most of all, have fun!
Cottage by the Sea is one of Australia’s oldest charities and provides holiday and respite accommodation for children and families in need of a break. The facilities are wonderful and customised to the needs and desires of children; we have worked with their staff to structure a program that is both rewarding and enjoyable for our group of boys. Feel free to browse their website at www.cottagebythesea.com.au
