Football NSW has officially launched its Walking Football programs, 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 older people to make exercise a normal part of their routine.
The program will highlight the health, well-being and social benefits of regular football and exercise activities for older people.
