5-A-SIDE TOURNAMENT – HIT THE BAR 2017! Sunday 24th September

Sign up your team for the JNF Charity 5’s football tournament 2017!

The winning team will receive a FitBit for each player, plus a goody bag for all teams that enter. More exclusive prizes for best goal, player of the tournament and top team will be presented by a surprise guest.

And… what’s it all about?

Improving mental health and wellbeing.
Football has a significant impact on mental health and affects emotions, relationships, identity and self-esteem.

Reducing stress and anxiety.
Time for most people is in short supply and so is the opportunity to get up and get active. Exercising mind, body and soul is a key factor in the maintenance of positive health and wellbeing.

Champion the JNF community.
Major depression is thought to be the second leading cause of disability worldwide and a major contributor of suicide. JNF provides those who may be at risk of suicide in Scotland with funding and access to 1-1 specialist counselling and we want everybody to know about it!

Teams will battle it out on the pitch to lift the coveted trophy at the end of the day. We ask that each team has 7 players and that they come with an open mind and a willingness to run about (a lot!). Friends and Family are invited along too.

So…. Get your team signed up and let the games begin!
