    The Common Goal Soccer Academy, launched in May 2016, is a community initiative that aims to:

    • foster positive relationships between young people from diverse communities
    • strengthen Police engagement with the community
    • provide opportunities to young people who may be disengaged or have had few opportunities in a sport and leadership environment, in particular young people from a multicultural background

    Based on similar programmes initiated by the Edmund Rice Centre, Common Goal encourages young people to be physically active in an environment that promotes positive relationships. The programme consists of weekly training sessions as well as extension opportunities, including matches, excursions, professional development and leadership training. It is open to all young people aged 8-18 years old (male and female).
