Cook Island reps look forward to conference

More than 700 participants aged 16-25 will descend on the TelstraClear Pacific centre on Monday for the six-day conference to address youth-related issues with a specific focus on sport.
CIFA has selected a talented group of young people including Regina Mustonen who was one of the standout performers at the recent OFC U-20 Women’s Championship in Auckland during which she scored a hat-trick against American Samoa.
Regina will travel to Auckland along with Mama Henry, Elizabeth Harmon, Teahi Wuatai, Tuka Tisam, Mii Joseph, Abaraham Jim and Campbell Best.
This conference has been organised by Oceania Football Confederation together with the Manukau City Council and will be based on four central themes: health; education and capacity building; citizenship and good governance; social integration and anti-discrimination.
It will feature seminars, workshops and roundtables as well as plenty of fun and entertainment.
The aim of the conference is to establish action plans that will increase participation of young people in society through sport and build structures whereby youth associations, government institutions and sports organisations can be more closely linked. In attendance for the final two days will be Sports Ministers from across the region.
