A Soccarista’s is a 14 or 15 year old Streetsport participant who has demonstrated leadership ability and aims to progress onto volunteer status at the age of 16.
This designation is seen as a bridge between ‘participant’ and ‘volunteer’.
A Soccarista leads by example and acts as a role model within their local community. They assist coaches and volunteers with the set up and delivery of games and other activities and are issued with a specific uniform.
