Touch Football is a widely played sport in Australia, with over 600,000 players. Building on their memorandum of understanding in January 2016, Touch Football Australia (TFA) is working with Japan Touch Association (JTA) to deliver their expertise on how to expand and build a sustainable sports business model.
Touch Football is a rapidly growing sport in Japan and TFA has the expertise and resources needed for the sport to flourish in Japan. During Australia now, TFA will deliver participation clinics for teenage girls in regions of Kumamoto, Osaka and Chiba.
Also through education and training of the JTA workforce, a sustainable model for participation will be established. Touch Football Exchange will provide Japanese girls the opportunities to benefit from being physically active.
Australia-Japan Touch Football Exchange is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Japan Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
The first workshop of this year is going to be held in Kumamoto!
