One Culture Football and the South Adelaide Panthers Football Club (Soccer) have teamed up to give people living with disability the opportunity to play soccer with others in similar situations.

O’Sullivan Beach based soccer club, the South Adelaide Panthers have been running weekly sessions on Saturday mornings with participants from One Culture Football.

Manager of the O’Sullivans Beach Complex & Founding Member of the SA Panthers FC, Steve Cox said the OSB Sports Complex and the SA Panthers FC look forward to developing the partnership with One Culture Football in 2019.

“It is hoped we can provide opportunities for everyone within the southern suburbs that wants to be involved in the football community at the Complex.”

Those who get involved with the program are given some of the best coaching advice available in the area with Panther's players Donovan Pollock and Harley Gepp helping to run the sessions.

Harley Gepp said working in the for One Culture Football program has been fantastic.

“Whether it's coaching at the multicultural or disability program, it is so rewarding to provide an avenue for kids that are not able to participate in school or club football, for various reasons, a place to learn a new sport or hone their skills in a safe, supportive and fun environment.”

Participants in the program come from a variety of ages, from young to old and everyone's abilities are catered for.
