FFT School Visits

Football Federation Tasmania also offers primary school football clinics. The clinics are designed around the four fundamental football skills in a learning model to maximize students' fun and education.

There is also an opportunity for your PE teacher to gain football accreditation and personal development.

In 2014, Football Federation Tasmania has appointed 8 Football Participation Officers (FPOs), These FPOs are here to help, so if your school is interested in a football school visit, enquire with the FPO in your area!

The program is usually 40-45 minutes in duration with each class K-6, either over consecutive days or a session a day over 2-3 weeks.
