Play Smart™

At Telstra, we’re passionate about encouraging young people to be safe both on and off the field. We’ve created Play Smart™, a program run in conjunction with cyber safety experts PROJECT ROCKIT and some of your favourite sporting teams and players.

Play Smart™ is a free 3 hour session designed to empower 12-16 year olds by providing important skills around both cyber safety and playing sport as part of a team.

Program sessions

Sessions will be held at locations around Australia from April to September 2018. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

More sessions will be added soon.
