Touch Football is one of the sports that can be delivered as part of Sport Australia's Sporting Schools program. It's one of the most popular sports in schools because it's easy to learn, boys and girls of all ages can play together and it comes with a low risk of injury because there's no tackling. Touch Football Australia works with primary and secondary schools around Australia to deliver Touch Football.
Visit the Sporting Schools website for information including how your school can apply for funding, closing dates for funding applications, how much funding your school is entitled to and the packages Touch Football Australia offers.
Australian Touch Football athlete and Sporting Schools Field Officer James Blackwood lets us in on why Touch Football is such a popular sport in schools.
Once you have received notification of your funding, you can access the Australian Sports Commission’s Sporting Schools Online Booking System, submit your booking request and we will make arrangements for your selected package to be delivered at your school.
