Walking Football programs are facilitated to provide male and female players the opportunity to continue playing or participate in football for the first time in a fun, sociable and inclusive environment.
The program focuses on passing rather than speed/running; flexible with its formats and accessible to the community and prospective players. The partnership between Football NSW and NSW Government – Family & Community Services will develop sustainable and ongoing programs to encourage people to make exercise a normal part of their routine.
The program will highlight the health, wellbeing and social benefits of regular football and exercise activities.
WHAT IS WALKING FOOTBALL
- The Walking Football programs are a slow-paced version of the beautiful game
- Matches are played with modified formats (5v5/6v6) on smaller pitches with shortened game times;
- Walking Football is non-contact with the Walking Rule defined as ‘always having one foot on the ground’
