Switch is an introductory Touch Football program designed specifically for
women to discover the fun and social benefits of touch football. Over several
weeks participants build on their basic skills and fitness, giving them the
confidence to easily transition into playing in social competitions across Victoria.
Participants can be new to the sport or experienced players, everyone is welcome to participate and feel the holistic benefits of the program.
Switch is specifically advertised as an adaptable program for any skill and/or fitness level. This means that deliverers are required to observe and listen to their participants and discuss what each participant would like to get out of Switch. The remainder of the program should be tailored to meet the needs of participants whilst still ensuring a skill focus, fun and social experience.
The most important part of being a deliverer is being friendly and approachable!
Ideally the deliverer assigned to run a Switch Program will be from a club. This brings a sense of familiarity and acceptance to the program, which can help break down barriers for participation.
The main traits of a deliverer include, but are not limited to: organised, punctual, a good communicator, a good sense of humour, flexible and enthusiastic. We would recommend moving away from a “traditional coach” as the environment that should be created is fun and social, with less focus on skill development and technical play.
Deliverers will be required to participate in training that provides education on whys to coach female adults and resources on skills and drills to inculde in the program.
The Deliverer will receive a manual which provides information about program delivery, activities to use and other important information.
The Deliverer will receive support from Touch Foobtall Victoria and all other coaches from the Switch program.
