National coaches to hold WA Paras session

Football West News

The WA Paras program will begin this weekend with a special free coaching session from national staff.

The Football Federation Australia-supported session will take place on Saturday at Dianella SC, Yokine Reserve, from 9am to noon.

There will be talent identification and an introduction to the international 7-a-side format for players aged between 5-18. Australian Pararoos players and coaches will be present.

The Paras program is for footballers with neurological-related mobility impairment.

Balcatta FC NPL Head Coach Goran Stajic is also the assistant coach of the national Pararoos side, while West Australians Chris Barty, Brad Scott and Alessandro La Verghetta last year helped the Pararoos qualify for the 2019 IFCPF* World Championship, which will take place in Spain in July.
