The first weekend of official competition began today for the Schools Football Association.
Held at the Bisini grounds, large attendance by school students from across the nations capital, made for an exciting day.
Featuring only twenty schools, the association is currently looking at improving the standard of football in the country, starting from the lower age groups.
For schools Football chairman, John Mogi, this has been a long time coming, although the administration and set up is an important part of growth for competition in the long run.
The belief is that this is the future of football, with a defined pathway including skill development for both teachers and coaches, as well as proposed referees clinics.
An inter-district competition is in the works, with the push for a bigger select-side networking plan.
The current PNG National team coach and assistant coach are in talks with schools football Port Moresby at the moment, in a bid to instill a better coaching philosophy for development, something that the organization is hoping to transcend down to the youth level.
The Schools Football Association will continue its competition over the next two months.
