NSW Seniors Festival 2024

As part of this year’s Festival BHACC hosted the captioned movie ‘Next Goal Wins’ at the Avoca Beach Picture Theatre. It was well attended with 86 ticket seats sold. This event was made possible by a grant from the NSW Seniors Festival under this year’s theme “Reach Beyond”. The movie was based on the 2014 documentary of the same name by Mike Brett and Steve Jamison about Dutch-American coach Thomas Rongen’s efforts to lead the American Samoa national football team, considered one of the weakest soccer teams in the world, to qualification for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Everyone one in the audience said they enjoyed the movie whether they were football fans or not they just wanted to see the American Samoa team, who had never scored a goal, to win.
