ALL ABILITIES PROGRAM

In conjunction with Touch Football Australia and Touch Football Specialised (TFS), BMTA runs an All Abilities Program with the aim to introduce EVERYONE into the joy of movement through the sport of touch football. The program is designed to cater for people with intellectual or physical disabilities, as well as brand new players who might want to get active on a Tuesday night. Qualified coaches will have athletes participate in a series of rotational skill-based activities designed to develop their ability in the core areas of the sport. Coaches will be able to modify the program for All Abilities with the goal to play full games of touch football at the end of the 6 week program.
