Touch Football Australia (TFA) and its partner states aim to provide schools with the opportunity to enjoy Touch Football through the various programs, via coach or teacher delivery.
To assist both our coaches and teachers in the delivery of Touch Football we have created a suite of resources to cater to the varying skill level of students.
This ensures that students have the opportunity to confidently develop their Touch Football skills and knowledge through high participation and enjoyable delivery.
The three resources we offer are outlined below.
Play for Life
Sport Introduction & Basics Through Game Based Activities.
This resource will most likely be targeted at students who have not been exposed to Touch Football and it is their first experience with the sport.
Foundation Schools Resource
Learning, Acquisition and Refinement of Basic Movement and Skills.
This resource will most likely be targeted at students who already have a basic understanding of Touch Football & have likely previously participated in some Touch Football programs.
Talent Schools Resource
Practice and Demonstration of Basic Skills and Progression to Talent Level of Movement and Skills.
This resource will most likely be targeted at students who have advanced beyond the Play for Life & Foundation Modules. Students should have a stronger understanding of the Foundation skills of Touch Football and are ready to further develop their skills at a Talent level.
A key note for these resources is that they are not aligned to a particular age group, but rather to the student’s level of development.
A judgement needs to be made from coaches and teachers as to the development level of participating students to identify which resource will be most appropriate.
Should you have any questions or feedback on these resources please feel free to contact TFA School and Junior Services Manager, Anthony Jennings on firstname.lastname@example.org
