North Coast’s tur-Bo into State side

July 7th, 2021

No sooner had 14-year-old Bo Bodnar bid the wildlife ‘in a while crocodile’ than the tyro was back on the Coffs Coast gearing up to represent NNSWF at the Youth Nationals in Canberra.
The 14s girls’ squad for the championships in October has already had its first get-together – but Bo couldn’t be there as it clashed with a long-arranged school trip to Darwin.
The experience of seeing “heaps” of toothy crocodiles in the Top End should steel the Year 8 St John Paul College student for the next step in her representative football career.
“I was super excited and happy – and kind of nervous,” Bo said of her reaction to being named in the State side.
“And I’m looking forward to the opportunity of playing with and against a high level of female footballers from all over Australia.”
The girls’ championships at Canberra – which will be Bo’s first time in the capital – will be held at the Australian Institute of Sport from October 17 to 22.
From a netball background, Bo is a relative latecomer to the beautiful game, starting out with the Under 10s at home club Woolgoolga.
But the talent was evident early on, and after a progression through SAP (Skill Acquisition Phase), the youngster progressed to North Coast NPL, where the central midfielder currently turns out for the 13s.
Bo hopes the Youth Nationals will help take her game to the next level.
