Touch Football Specialised (TFS)
Touch Football Australia (TFA) runs Touch Football Specialised (TFS), a program that provides opportunities for people with intellectual and/or physical impairments to play Touch Football with their friends, family and the greater community.
Modified fields, rules and equipment (if required) are utilised to provide a pathway for everyone to play.
All Abilities Touch Football Program
Off the back of Touch Football Specialised, TFA has just launched the All Abilities Touch Football Program, a completely inclusive opportunity for people with intellectual and/or physical impairments to learn touch football skills and play the sport with their family members, carers, friends, elite footy players and the wider community.
The All Abilities Touch Football Program is funded as a result of a participation grant from the Sport Australia ‘Move it Aus’ program.
The All Abilities Touch Football Program will be rolled out over the next 12 months, by 30th June 2019, with six programs to be implemented in Queensland, six in New South Wales, and one in each of Australia’s other six states and territories.
