The 2021 Wyndham Youth Cup has had an exciting addition this year. The same awesome week long football tournaments in the Term 3 holidays, but with more!

Wyndham City Youth and Sport and Recreation teams are working with Activate Youth. Activate Youth is a not-for-profit organisation launched early this year to address challenges around the social, mental, physical and financial well-being of multicultural youth. Activate Youth provides a platform for young people in Victoria to empower, lead and inspire each other and the wider community irrespective of race, religion and language.

This year is all about empowering young people and encouraging them to play a key role in the Youth Cup through an 6-week sports, fitness and empowerment program running up to the tournament. We are looking for young people to be a part of our team.

  • Football coaching team – would you like to gain a Football coaching qualification and buddy up with others to deliver some sessions to other young people? You don’t have to be a great footballer just willing to learn and share the skills you learn with others. Your first step is to sign up to our coaching course (for details see below)
  • Football referee team - would you like to gain a Football refereeing qualification and come on board and referee matches as part of the Youth Cup? (qualification will run August/ September)
  • Participate in the program – would you like to improve your football skills/ want to start training for the Youth cup? Meet new people, gather your team, come along for our 4 week program and get trained by your peers

You can take on one role or all roles, depending on what interests you. No skills or experience are necessary, this is a great opportunity to just get involved, meet others and gain experience.

The empowerment program, young people team and tournament are open to all Wyndham 12 to 25 year olds of all backgrounds and genders.
