Touch Football Australia and Queensland Touch Football have developed a suite of resources to cater for the varying skill level of students. The resources are not to an age group, but rather to the student’s level of development.
QTF is conscious that the operating environment for schools has changed significantly and we have implemented a COVID-19 Safety Plan which includes strict hygiene and social distancing protocols to ensure a safe delivery of touch football in schools when possible.
Play for life – uses modified rules to meet the developmental needs of young Touch Football players. The program consists of seven sequential, game-based lessons suitable for primary school students of all abilities.
Foundation Schools Resource – has been structured to work in school settings and follows on from the ‘Play for Life’ resource. This resource is designed to assist those with a minimal understanding of touch football, to deliver and teach the foundation skills of Touch Football.
Talent School Resource – has been structured to work in a school setting and follows on from the Foundation Coaching Resource. This resource is designed to assist those with an extension on the skills taught at the Foundation level, to develop and deliver a catered physical education program for students.
There are two types of Sporting Schools Touch Football programs and three coaching resources available for primary and secondary school students in Year 7 and 8.
