A local Touch Football competition, club, association or region is a ‘shop front’ to the local community - the first place that customers go to experiance Touch Football. If that experience is enjoyable, exciting and value for money, they will shop again and encourage their friends to do the same. If they don’t enjoy the experience, the sport has lost a customer!

The Affiliate Management Resource Initiative (AMRI) is an initiative created by Touch Football Australia (TFA). The program contains a wide range of resources to assist the affiliate to improve towards implementing ‘best practice’ administration. The program is about affiliate development and provides an easy to use framework that will help to make continuous improvement a culture not a chore.

The AMRI has been designed to assist local competitions, clubs and associations of all sizes and locations, evaluate and improve how they run their competitions. Templates and checklists help the affiliate to identify areas of strength and those requiring improvement. 

Summary of Topics available include:

  • Benchmarking & Analysis
  • Touch Football Online (TFO)
  • Online Registration & Payments
  • Administration & Finance
  • General Management
  • Competition Risk Management
  • Referee Management
  • Disciplinary Regulations
  • Affiliate Risk Assessments
