Touch Football Australia is the governing body for the sport in this country and as such, we have a number of responsibilities and key roles that we perform for our members. Our central focus is to develop Touch Football and the policies, trends, issues and opportunities associated with it, with a ‘whole of sport’ outlook in mind. It is also our duty to collaborate with our partners, stakeholders and members to provide overall strategic direction and management for the sport in Australia.
Touch Football Australia is responsible for providing leadership for our state organisations, as well as sustainability for the sport in Australia, and internationally. We create and maintain strong relationships with partners, sponsors and key stakeholders and we strive to market, expose and promote Touch Football within the Australian community.
Touch Football Australia’s national office is located in Deakin, Canberra. The building is named Mungga Iri House and was officially opened in 1992 by the Federal Minister for The Arts, Sport and Environment and Territories. The term ‘Mungga Iri’ means ‘Catch Pass’ in the local Indigenous dialect.
With the Australian Sports Commission, the Australian Institute of Sport and a number of other national sporting organisations also based in Canberra, our current location provides us with an excellent opportunity to develop our sporting relationships and programs.
