KOLOALE will begin training for the new Honiara Football Association (HFA) season next week.
According to a post on the club’s social media page, training will begin on April 3.
Training was supposed to kick off Monday this week at the Rove Police Club field but had it postponed for next week due to other reasons.
“Due to other reasons with the venue, training is now postponed to begin after the Easter weekend break, starting on Tuesday April 3 at Rove Field,” a message from the club management said.
Koloale is one of the teams competing in the HFA Premier division.
The club added that they welcome any interested new player who would like to be part of them in the new season.
“Any interested new players are welcome to come and train and join trials before the final 30- man squad is selected.
“Training continues every day at 5pm from Monday to Friday at the Rove Police Field.”
The new HFA season will kick off on May 12.
The HFA league competition went under a review recently and this season they are using the newly adopted two-divisional structure for the first time – Premier Division and Division One in the upcoming season.
The new structure will see both divisions having 18 teams each.
The increment to the number of teams into each division is aimed toward having more matches for clubs in a season.
Meanwhile, registration for the 2018 season is now open.
HFA said registration will close on May 4, a week prior to kick off.
All HFA clubs are urged to pay up their affiliation fees of $1,000 each to formalize their memberships.
HFA said registration for the premier division is $2,000 per team while for Division One it’s $1,000 per team.
