Outkast Sports Melbourne Junior Touch first came about in 2021 and delivered their first junior development program in April. With 48 juniors aged 4-15 taking part in the entry level program, this pilot program proved to be very successful.
The programs offered by Outkast Sports Melbourne consist of basic skills and drills to help juniors learn the sport of Touch Football. Through modified progressions and social games of Touch, participants can then put their new learnt skills into practice. No points, no winners, and no losers, all activity-based learning.
With the success of the first program, Outkast Sports Melbourne commenced their second activation in late 2021 with the Westside Touch Upskilling program (Supported by Youth in Touch). Since then, numbers continued to climb each week with more and more juniors aged 4-16 coming down to join the program. As the weeks went on, the program totalled at 79 registrations.
In 2022, Outkast Sports Melbourne will be hosting their third junior program on the 10th of January. This module will be running both social competition and additional training sessions which will provide opportunities for newcomers to learn the game of touch football.
