Secombe Street Reserve Project

The partnership between City of Playford and the Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation fosters a healthier community by providing local children and families with access to sports, facilities and equipment via ongoing free sports coaching and events for children at the Secombe Street Reserve.

Two programs operate during school terms and three programs during school holidays, which is an awesome way for kids to get involved in any sports they enjoy!

To enquire about the programs, contact Project Officer Louise Benoit -  lbenoit@playford.sa.gov.au
