Vittoriosa Stars Youth Football Nursery

On Sunday 31st May, 2009, the Vittoriosa Stars Youth Football Nursery, organised a 7-a-side under 8 "RESPECT" football festival at the "De la Salle" football grounds.

The Committee firmly believes that every child has the right to enjoy sport in a fun, safe environment but sadly sometimes over enthusiastic parents and carerrs can often create an atmoshpere where a child is fearful of making mistakes. This often means that they turn their back on football and the vital healthy lifestyles it cultivates at an early stage. Therefore a child's wishes and right to enjoy oneself have to be respected.

The objective of this football nursery and the idea behind this festial which is being mentored by the renowed goalkeeper Mr. Saviour Darmanin is to try to improve behaviour standards across football.

In all there were 5 participating nurseries being from Vittoriosa, Floriana, Mgarr, Kirkop and Haz-Zebbug.

After the tournament, the Mayor, Mr. John Boxall distributed to each team and each player a medal for participating.
