Touch Football Australia is excited to be one of the sports chosen to be involved in Sporting Schools, working closely with primary schools around Australia to deliver Touch Football. Touch Football Australia would like to thank the Australian Sports Commission for its support with this program.

Touch Football is a sport that provides an unobstructed, continuous pathway for both boys and girls to participate equally, often on the field at the same time. At the end of 2016 Touch Football Australia had 694,427 participants and has set itself the strategic goal of achieving 1,000,000 participants by 2020 including a market penetration of 15.2% of schools formally involved in the sport. Along with this, Touch Football Australia is committed to achieving a unified workforce through the implementation and growth of our Field Officer Program.

It is with pleasure that we offer your school the opportunity to be involved in the Touch Football Australia Sporting Schools Program in 2017.

Touch Football Australia can offer a range of Field Officer (coach) delivered or teacher delivered packages to suit all needs of your school as well other modified services that Sporting Schools funding can be used for.

Please visit the Sporting Schools website for all information on Sporting Schools including:

 

  • How your school can apply for funding
  • Closing dates for funding applications
