Macarthur Square Bulls in Schools Program

In partnership with Macarthur FC, we are proud to introduce the Macarthur Square Bulls in Schools program. 

This program provides local school students with an opportunity to participate in an active and educational session of football, fun and healthy living. With a focus on teamwork and communication combined with physical activity, the program is suitable for kids of all backgrounds. 

Targeted at students in years 3 – 6, the program is delivered by trained community coaches that are fully endorsed by Macarthur FC. The program also follows all requirements to ensure a COVID-safe environment for participants. 

Sponsoring the Macarthur Square Bulls in Schools program is a way to show our thanks to the local Macarthur region and community, which has supported our centre throughout the last four decades.
