The free January 14 event at Butler Community Centre is for children aged five to 18 and will run from 4pm to 6pm in the park on Kingsbridge Boulevard.

Youth sports co-ordinator Lisbeth Comissao said they hoped to encourage more community engagement between police and local children.

“It’s just a friendly match between youth from the Butler area with the police, just to improve their relationship,” she said.

Supported by the Department of Sport and Recreation, the City of Wanneroo and WA Police, the event will also include a free sausage sizzle.

The Edmund Rice Centre has been running regular sports programs for children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds in Butler, including tennis on Wednesdays and soccer on Fridays.
