Soccer is Life!

Soccer is Life!

Soccer is Life! is a community initiative to engage with young people from a refugee background through soccer . Sports is a terrific vehicle to keep young people involved in a positive, constructive activity, that promotes a healthy lifestyle and builds on life skills such as time management, team work and leadership.

The MRC works with youth community leaders who volunteer their time to help register players, maintain codes of conduct and assist players with transport. We also engage with family members who come to watch, and assist with them with other settlement issues such as employment, access to further study, homework support, housing issues and access to MRC programs to address multiple auxillary settlement challenges.

Valued partners include Holroyd City Council and the Australian Soccer Referees Federation.
