Player Pathways

Touch Football proposes an entire pathway for players from learning as a kid to represent Australia in international competitions. Children from the age of three are often exposed to Touch Football through school based clinics or events. School competitions are fantastic experiences for all participants, with the main ones gathering up to 5000 children in a great carnival atmosphere. School participation has a representative pathway with opportunities to link to Touch Football Australia’s (TFA) High Performance Program. For national youth players, gates are wide open to make the Australian team and play in the World Cup against the best players in the world. Penrith Touch Association has been fortunate enough to  be the home of many Australian and New South Wales representatives over time. We have had players captain their state and country, and they are still proud to call Penrith Touch Association HOME!
