Hundreds of young footballers have kicked a goal these school holidays thanks to Brisbane Roar's popular skills clinics – and there's still time to get involved.
Limited spaces are available for the Pauls Roar Active Program clinics this week at Southside Eagles, Souths United, Narangba and Brighton Bulldogs.

The Roar coaches last weekend visited Gin Gin and Mundubbera and received a fantastic welcome from the locals as 120 budding young footballers took part in our clinics.
The club also conducted a Coach the Coach session for their mini roo age groups and received some wonderful feedback from Gin Gin and Mundubbera residents
“A huge thank you goes out to you and your team for coming all the way to little Mundubbera to do your football clinic,” wrote local football coach Douglas Kumar in an email sent to the Roar this week.
“It's very rare that small towns like us get this kind of attention. For me, someone who lives and breathes football, it was a very special occasion.
“Making the effort on your part to give us (coaches) some of your counsel and expertise is greatly appreciated.
“I hope that you guys continue to traverse the state and give these fantastic opportunities to other communities.
“With the services that your team (and other organisations) are providing across Australia, football in this country is on its way!
“I express my sincere thanks to yourself and the rest of your team.”
Local parent Cianna Moore also took time to send her thanks to the Roar’s RAP team.
“All the kids had an amazing time! They really look forward to it each time,” she wrote.
“As parents we are so thankful to have such quality input for our kids out here in Gin Gin.”
After the road trip last weekend, the Paul’s Roar Active Program clinics returned a little closer to home during the week with clinics at Brisbane City Indoor Centre, Moggill Football Club and Livingston Christian College on the Gold Coast.
Today they are making a special visit to Barambah Bears in Murgon.
