Rego night for new sport in Hill
Wednesday, 6th February, 2019

Registration for Broken Hill Futsal will be taking place tonight with the inaugural 10-week season kicking off on Monday, February 11.
Taking place at the old ICA building out at Memorial Oval, teams will be able to submit their registration forms with a demonstration match taking place as well.
There’ll be competitions for senior men’s, women’s, mixed, over 35s and junior Under 10s, 12s, 14s and 16s that locals can enter into.
Publicity Officer at the Broken Hill Soccer Association (BHSA) David Deacon encouraged those interested to come down on Wednesday and join up for Futsal’s first year.
“The demo game kicks off at 7pm and that’s when we’ll take the registrations,” he said.
“The demo game will also be just to have a look at the courts and see if we need to fine tune anything.
“For registrations, we currently have a number of them coming in from all the clubs within the community, but we’re hoping to have a good idea (about overall numbers) by the time Wednesday night is over.
“We’re also imploring people to get their work teams in so they can play in a social grade as well.
“So we’ll see what we need and how many teams are in each competition, but the hope is that Futsal will get up and running (quickly) and if it does we’ll be very proud of it.
“At the end of the day it’s been a really solid effort by a committed group of people (to get this all set up), but we need people to come in now.”
While registration is being encouraged for tonight’s event, Mr Deacon added that teams can submit forms online by Sunday the 10th.
“Until Sunday the 10th you can submit the forms to the BHSA Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org” he said.
“By the 10th everything will be finalised with the draws and the teams put up on both the Broken Hill Soccer 2019 and BHSA Facebook pages.
“So if you go onto the Broken Hill Soccer 2019 page you can download a form and submit that electronically, or print it out and bring it on Wednesday.”
Registration forms can also be picked at McDonald’s and brought to tonight’s event.
