FRIENDSHIP is a key cog in the Doveton Special Soccer School’s philosophy.
So much so that coach Juan Carlos Loyola expects this Friday’s 10th Annual Friendship Day to be one of the biggest events on the club’s 2013 calendar.
“The Friendship Day means a lot, this was part of my dream for many years,” Mr Loyola said.
“We had to stop the day for a few years and it’s been my dream to get it back.
“I encourage the community to come out to it.”
The Friendship Day, to be held at Waratah Reserve in Doveton tomorrow, Thursday, allows participants from several special schools to compete in soccer matches across a range of different divisions.
The special schools participating in this year’s event include Ashwood, Berendale, Emerson, Marenbek, Wangaratta and Doveton.
The opening ceremony will kick off proceedings at 10.20am before the games get underway for the rest of the morning and afternoon.
Mr Loyola also said he wouldn’t have been able to put the event on again without the help of several organisations including Blairlogie Living and Learning and Wallara Industries, just to name a few.
Families and supporters are encouraged to come along to the event, while any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.
Volunteers need to report to the club rooms for registration by 7.30am and the opening ceremony will be held at 10.20am, with games starting at 11am.
