Rainbow now has soccer practice on Mondays after school and everybody is welcome to join in the fun

Another of the sports getting off the ground in the local area is soccer, with lots of children and parents enjoying being able to enjoy the fun without the travel.

The training will return when school starts back up and is held for an hour on Mondays, straight after school at the Rainbow Beach cricket oval.

Jenna Irving has started the group and it has been running for nearly three months and she said everyone was welcome.

“I started it because Jay really wanted to play soccer and having three little kids and living so far from Gympie, I wasn’t ready to commit this year for the travel two days a week.

“Every week we have kids from Prep to Grade six and we have a minimum of 10 and up to 20 children each time, it is casual so it just depends who turns up.

“It is not compulsory to come every week, it’s just if you want to go that day, you go that day and spend an hour learning skills and making friends.”

Jenna does ask that the children are supervised by a parent or by another adult, as the fun is open to all primary school-aged children.

There is no cost involved and if you are keen to get involved Jenna would love to hear from you on: 0427 862 770.
