Selected from Australian Futsal Association National Club Titles in Sydney early 2012 , Boonah Futsal had Three players accept positions to represent Australia in National “Tours of a Lifetime”, they were Shaun Maguire – 15 Boys, Emily Hoffmann – 14 Girls & Mitchell Herrmann – 12 Boys.
Shaun went to the USA – San Jose and San Francisco from the 25th October to the 9th November. Shaun had a wonderful time. He learnt a lot of game skills. Shaun’s team came 2nd in the competition. He had a great time shopping in so many sport stores. His Mum reports he brought back 5 pairs of shoes. The Team went cycling over the golden gate bridge and went to Alcatraz. They played volleyball on the beach. They stayed mainly in San Jose.
Emily and Mitchell went to New Zealand from the 16th to the 28th November.
Emily said my experience to New Zealand was fantastic, we were able to attend an adventure park, polynesian spa, a Thermal village, Sky Tower, and a Underwater Aquarium and a Shell factory, while having the opportunity to play many tournaments along the way with the New Zealand teams. We drew two games but unfortunately lost the others. The weather was great the whole time we were over there. I would like to thank all of the people who sponsored me and gave me the opportunity to attend this tour. As I gain many life long experiences from the trip. And found the New Zealanders very friendly and they showed us their kind hospitality while on your.
Mitch’s main highlights of New Zealand were seeing snow on the mountain tops, the boiling mud and the luge ride in Rotorua , the view from the Sky Tower, however the most freakish thing was knowing that the ground could cave in at Rotorua so we had to walk on the cement pathways. I would have to say that the most awsome thing was playing futsal and 5 a side soccer throughout the tour, winning the Futsal Tournament in Auckland and the mates that I have made from this Australian Tour. The most exciting thing is knowing that I will get to meet up with my mates again that I have made from the Australian Tour at the National Futsal Tiltles in Sydney.
