Tea Tree Gully Council and Uniting Care Wesley is putting out the welcome mat with a multicultural women’s soccer program.

The free program for 13 to 17 year olds will be held from 4-5.30pm on Thursdays from 19 October at Modbury Jets Soccer Club.

The program is a real team effort with the Jets providing the ground and Uniting Care Wesley Port Adelaide providing a skilled coach and experienced Youth Worker the support the participants.

“With soccer an increasingly popular sport with multicultural young women, it provides a way to build cultural connections and awareness. This program is a great introduction to the sport for those who haven’t played previously or want to build skills in a safe space,” said Carly Didcote, Tea Tree Gully Council youth development officer.

Participants keen to continue with the sport following the end of the 10-week program will be connected with other clubs in the area.
