Football West Country Week
QBE Country Week is Football West’s Annual WA regional football tournament. The tournament has three key objectives:
- Regional Championships
- Talent ID of players
- Coach Education
Over 1000 players, coaches, volunteers and spectators travel from across the state to compete.
Broome has entered an U15 side since 2016, with the 2017 side finishing equal first (2nd on goal difference) in their division and winning the final on penalties against Albany.
The 2018 competition will be held during the first week of the September school holidays (24th-28th).
This year the BSA plans to send both and U17s and U15s. Costs for each player to attend are estimated at approx $1500 (payable in 2 payments). This includes travel, accommodation, meals and uniforms. Spending money will be needed by players for shopping trips & an evening meal in Freo.
The players and coaches will fly to Perth on the Sunday before the comp (23rd Sept) and stay the week at the Woodman Point Recreation Camp. In previous years, the tournament has played at Beale Park in Cockburn. This year, it moves to UWA’s Sports Park in Mount Claremont.
The sides will return to Broome on a Friday evening flight or Saturday morning flight pending tournament schedules & fixtures.
