Moree now has an online ‘Soccer Scribble’ thanks to the ladies involved with the Moree Junior Soccer Club.
The website provides a 24/7 point of call for information.
Calendars, upcoming events and weekend draws are some of the features that the website offers.
On the home page there is an ‘alerts box’ which is used to draw the browser’s attention to weather and playing conditions along with registrations for upcoming carnivals.
There are also details on the junior soccer code of conduct and canteen rosters for parents.
The website www.moreesport.com.au will not only be used for junior soccer purposes.
Local hockey, soccer, netball and cricket clubs have also been approached about the website.
