Collingwood All Stars Soccer Program (CASP) is a local Yarra based weekly Community Soccer Program. Catering for kids that live in the Collingwood High Rise Commission Estates. We were welcomed to have local kids from this program compete in the Fair Play Comps each year. This allowed our kids to have a focus and purpose to attend the weekly CASP Program and experience the Fair Play competition. This allowed our kids another opportunity to work towards and the ability to play together as a team and represent their community. It also gave the local kids exposure to other people who were participating in the competition that were keen to support them. The latest Fair Play 15 accommodated 50 of our local Yarra kids from the Richmond, Fitzroy & Collingwood Estates
