Junior Hoodies!
Orders now being taken

A new hoodie has been introduced to the Tawa Junior uniform.  

The jackets, which are available in youth and adult sizes, will have the player's name on the back and their initials on the front, along with the Tawa Football logo.

The jackets look great and we are able to provide them for only $40 each which includes the kids names and initials being printed on them. This is the cost price to the club so this is not a fundraiser. 

You can email your order now to juniors@tawafootball.org.nz with your child's name, initials and size of hoodie required.

Mike Wood, President Tawa AFC, was the winner of the Sport & Recreation category.

The brief citation read out on the night for Mike is:
Mike has held several positions in the Tawa Association Football Club, starting by coaching kids in 1982, and is currently Club President, a position he has held for 15 years. He is very active in the Club‘s day-to-day running and has put substantial effort into gaining community funding for football in Tawa. Mike’s leadership has ensured development of the Club, particularly in negotiation with Wellington City Council in continued enhancement of the pitches, resulting in a promise of a major upgrade at Redwood Park in the not-too-distant future.
