AllPlay Footy, funded by the Moose Foundation and the NDIS, is our resource to make NAB AFL Auskick more inclusive for kids with disabilities. Contained within the site you will find information, practical tips and strategies, footy stories and videos for coaches, parents and players of all abilities.
The AllPlay BETTAFooty Program, funded by the Moose Foundation and the NDIS through the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) National Readiness Grants, builds on the up and running Deakin University AllPlay Footy program to enable more indigenous children to participate in NAB AFL Auskick and enjoy its benefits.
Lots of Indigenous communities love football and we want to tap into that passion to build awareness in communities of the difficulty faced by kids in managing their emotions, impulses and behaviours, which can stop them from joining in with group activities like playing footy.
The AllPlay BETTAFooty program is a toolkit of ideas and advice to help build understanding about children who find it hard joining in and playing sport. It is tailored to make sure that the materials, information and training are culturally sensitive and developed to suit each community.
