PORT HARDY-Annual elementary school tourney draws youngsters for three days of play at Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxda'xw School

PORT HARDY—Once again, the Friendship Soccer Tournament at Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw School lived up to its name.

For three days, elementary school students from throughout the North Island filled the school gym with high-flying action, laughter and, of course, smiles.

Broken into sessions by age group, the tournament featured one day of play for grade 2-3 players, another for grades 4-5 and a final round for grade 6-7 students.

Each day featured halftime activities, including team relay races, “hot shots” with a radar gun and dribbling and ball trick demonstrations.
