Soccer has taken a team of Subiaco under-15 boys to Denmark and Sweden during the school holidays.
Soccer boys will try skiing
The players from Subiaco AFC are playing in the Dana Cup in Denmark this week, and next week will be in Sweden competing in the international Gothia Cup.
The Subiaco club has been sending a team to the Gothia Cup each year for 10 years.
The competition attracts a total of 1700 teams of 12 to 17-year-olds from 76 countries to play in 4341 matches over one wild week.
It is held in Gothenburg, which is also the headquarters of construction firm Serneke, which has a branch in Nedlands. The firm is sponsoring the Subiaco team and will treat the boys to a day of cross-country skiing in Serneke's indoor year-round ski facilities in Gothenburg after the tournament.
