Football Australia looks forward to visiting your school soon and delivering a fun, active and curriculum based program and planting a seed for a long lasting love and connection to the beautiful game and its community. 

SCHOOL OFFERINGS - Sporting Schools

Sporting Schools is Australia’s largest school-based sports participation program, providing an opportunity for children to get active and connect with community sport. 

Football Australia has partnered with Sport Australia as the deliverer of Football within the program. Each term, schools across Australia can apply for funding and grants to implement a football program for students in kindergarten to Year 8. 

Using Physical Literacy principles as the core of our session guides, our coaches will focus on developing student’s movement skills, knowledge and behaviours of students to gain confidence in their  ability, transition to a participant of community football and, become a long term fan of the game.
