The Ricki Herbert Football Academy’s U-10 team enjoyed a variety of experiences on their six-match tour of Melbourne, Australia.
As well as learning from their matches and coaching sessions, the players enjoyed touring the Victorian capital, and having special opportunities such as watching the Melbourne City first team train ahead of their local derby A-League match with Melbourne Victory.
Friendships were formed, players learned the value of being a team (on and off the pitch) and the tour helped the youngsters’ social development, as well as their footballing skills and knowledge.
Thanks to all the families who supported the players and made this tour possible.
