Wanderers to run clinics for kids of refugee backgrounds


The Western Sydney Wanderers will be running clinics for 107 players from the Australian National Sports Club outside ANZ Stadium on 29-30 September.

The Australian National Sports Club in Lakemba is located in an area which has a predominant Arab and Muslim population. The club plays a key role in creating an environment for various cultures to come together by encouraging youth participation in activities such as football to build confidence and make friends.

President of the club, Youcef Kabbara was honoured for his work earlier this year when he won the prestigious Chairman’s Award at the Wanderers Medal in May. The Chairman’s Award is given out every year to someone who has made a big difference to the community, members of the public can nominate a worthy recipient at any time to reception@wswanderersfc.com.au
Kabbara has been instrumental in promoting the sport in the Western Sydney region, having dedicated the last 20 years to helping as a club volunteer and referee.
The Australian National Sports Club aims to work among Australia’s youth to create an environment that promotes good sportsmanship, improves skills and evolves a balanced and healthy citizenry in Australia’s multicultural society.

The Wanderers recognise the benefits of the program and aim to support it through activities such as the clinic to be run next week.
All 107 players will get to experience the thrill of the Sydney Derby a week later as they will be in the stands to watch the Red & Black take on Sydney FC on 8 October.
