Hope Australia Soccer Academy (HASA) is a unique not-for-profit program conducted by Brazilian ex-professional soccer players in Melbourne, Australia. It involves developing soccer skills and life skills through a mentoring approach.
The program is aimed at providing young people aged 7 to 18 with the disciplines and pathways that will help them be successful in life. Ultimately our goal is to see individuals, families and communities better connected and thriving both socially and economically through holistic support, free from intolerance and discrimination, and able to respond to emerging needs and challenges.
HASA is a community project that is supported by the Federal Government and Football Victoria. Other partners include Sports Chaplaincy Australia, Berwick Churches Soccer Club, Casey City Church, Strategic Missions Partnerships, Kids Hope Australia and the Casey community.
