The first IFKK tournament for the year is on the 26th of February, and entries close by 8pm this Thursday.
Get your entries in ASAP and do it online at https://www.trybooking.com/OMTQ. Online bookings are $20. If you want to do paper form bookings, the cost will be $30.
If you are 7 years and under, all you will need is a mouthguard (but you can wear protective gear too if you wish), but if you're 8 years and up, you should have a mouthguard, mitts, shin-instep pads, and a groin guard (for males). See me if you need them and don't have them.
Are you ready for this? I will be letting you know whether or not you're eligible for it very soon. In the meantime, keep training like you want to be the next grade!
