THE Suva women's soccer side began their season with the Try Out Football Game at the University of the South Pacific (USP) grounds yesterday.

The day-long program was aimed at getting women involved in football.

Event organising committee member Lavenia Yalovi said they recorded a good number of participants.

"Our youngest player was from St. Joseph's Secondary School and our oldest player was in her 30s," she said.

"Women of all age and background turned out today (yesterday). We had Suva women's team players, Solomon Islanders and also USP and Raiwaqa girls who turned out for the first try out.

"We also had senior players such as Una Moce and Virisila Frances Lauta."

Virisila Frances Lauta is a Fiji national women's squad member, who represented the country to the Pacific Games in New Caledonia in 2011.

The second tryout will be held next week at the USP grounds.
