When it comes to football clubs, Ipswich has plenty of them including Rugby League, Rugby Union, Aussie Rules, Soccer and even OZ Tag, all with junior leagues for kids to enjoy.
But which one are you going to sign up to? It’s a very personal choice and quite often children and their families lean towards a code that they have grown up with, perhaps their brother, sister or father played the game. Some families may prefer a game with less contact such as soccer or OZ Tag, others may be OK with the contact of rugby and the efforts put in by clubs to make it a safe sport. But if you’re still unsure, consider it this way. Whichever code you select, your child will:
- Become more active
- Will have new role models
- Learn to lose
- Learn to win and the rewards involved
- Learn to be part of a team
- Learn what it’s like to be cheered upon by you on the sideline
- Become part of a new community
- Make lifetime friends
