SHEPPARTON Touch Association is proud to announce another collaboration with Youth In Touch (YIT) and now, the SWITCH program. Together, they will be aiming to kick start social touch football again in Shepparton.
YIT is a VicHealth funded program designed to get youth more physically active through touch football. Recently they ran a YIT program in Shepparton and after the success of that, they are back with another chance for locals to get involved with this fun and interactive team sport.
They are hosting another FREE, five-week long mixed youth competition. This time round, the mixed competition is open for all ages, all skills levels and playing experiences. All participants have to do is turn up, jump in a team and start playing!
Shepparton Touch are also excited to bring the Switch program to Shepparton. Switch is a multi-week introductory Touch Football program for all women.
It is an initiative of NRL Touch Football and VicHealth that aims to improve health and well-being of Victorian women through social sport.
Over a few weeks, participants will build on the fitness and skills to boost confidence and strengthen women in Touch Football.
