Touch Try

Specialist Touch Football

The program is designed to develop skills and performance in Touch Football and provide pathways to club, state and national levels.

Touch Football is a young and exciting sport with opportunities for students to progress to the top level. Skill development and increased understanding of the game are key elements of the program. Involvement leads to increased opportunity for high level competition, training, coaching courses and referee courses.

Students will also have access to state coaches and officials.

The Program

Training is based on the latest Touch Football principles and will balance high intensity training with enjoyment. The Lakeland SHS Approved Specialist Touch Football Program is a part of Touch Football WA’s Elite Athletes Pathway.

Students are expected to follow a Code of Conduct, maintaining good behaviour, good attendance and participation in all aspects of school life, including other subjects.
