To celebrate the McDonald’s Junior Football season, New Zealand Football has created a series of McDonald’s Junior Football Activities Coaching Videos.
Check out the second one in the series of six called ‘Capture the Flag’ (above).
Owain Prosser, the Football Development Manager of Junior Football at New Zealand Football, said McDonald’s Junior Football is in a good place in New Zealand with thousands of children taking part in the game they love. More than 50,o00 kids took part in the opening weekend.
In recent time, football numbers have been growing consistently. There are more than 150,000 registered footballers in New Zealand and significant numbers in the junior space.
Since the introduction of the award-winning Whole of Football Plan in 2011, Sport NZ research tells us that 71 percent of boys and 52 percent of girls participate in football, while Junior and Youth participation has grown 34.6 percent and 49 percent respectively.
