Thank you to Dr. Joe Tempone for developing a connection between the soccer communities of Tarime in Tanzania (Africa) and Northern Tasmania.
The long term goal is to establish a "Sister City" relationship based on soccer involving the NTJSA.
The Kiterere Soccer Club is pictured below, enjoying wearing their first ever soccer uniforms; These particular ones were donated by Westside Devils Junior Soccer Club and Launceston United.
