The game’s peak body Touch Football Australia (TFA) has entered a new strategic cycle in 2016-2020 with three of the key strategic targets being 1,000,000 participants, 15 percent penetration into the school and junior market and 400 affiliate locations around Australia.
Touch Football Australia and its Board has made significant investment into the school and junior space for this cycle, focussing on the following programs:
- Field Officer Workforce: Enabling state bodies and their affiliate’s access to a workforce who are able to promote and deliver Touch Football programs in schools across Australia.
- Ambassador Program: Encouraging growth and unity within the TFA workforce in a collaborative effort to promote and deliver the sport of Touch Football.
- Improve Resources and Marketing: Developing resources that facilitate the delivery of Touch Football within school and affiliates as well as create targeted marketing material for more efficient promotion.
- Targeted Growth Program: Outlined below
In order to create a holistic approach in striving towards these strategic targets, the 2016/17 Targeted Growth Program (TGP) funding will focus on providing affiliates with the financial resources to grow or start up junior competitions.
The TGP provides affiliates with the opportunity to put forward their ideas for growth and development within the Touch Football community with a specific focus on junior participation.
The TGP also aims to provide TFA with the opportunity to work closely with affiliates in assisting them to achieve their goals for growth and development.
