While people see our program as a football program, we also do a massive amount of education offfield in terms of health and wellbeing, said New.This adds another avenue to what we do, providing a wellrounded education process.

The StreetSmarts program aims to engage directly with communities about road safety issues, shine a light on driver education and road safety, and bring about social change to encourage safe driver behaviour. With their core demographic being players who are on the brink of obtaining their drivers licence, it puts an emphasis on educating young Australians on road safety.

We want to make sure were producing really safe road users and they are role models for their peers, said Newman. StreetSmarts will have prominent branding across all major Gold Coast SUNS Academy apparel and assets, including the back of the SUNS Academy guernsey.
