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.


  • 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’

Walking Football programs are designed to help people maintain an active lifestyle; and promote participation of the beautiful game in a fun, inclusive and social environment.

Football South Coast will be holding a FREE Come & Try Walking Football sessions at the Fraternity Club 5 a side courts every Thursday at 10:30am for 10 weeks, starting Thursday 24 May.  Anyone interested in attending should contact the via email admin@footballsouthcoast.com
