People from age 9 who would find it difficult to play a large pitch game at full speed can learn skills, grow confidence and develop teamwork at their own pace with Equal Footingball Division.
Three different tailored playing levels help many players with competitive disadvantages, including disabilities, to discover and enjoy the game.
It is generally a once-weekly commitment between April and September with breaks for school holidays and long weekends.
The rules, which are used by other club teams each weekend, are similar to the international Special Olympics and Paralympic formats.
Players are constantly encouraged to set goals and aim to always improve.
Some of the more common targets are:
- Score a goal
- Make new friends
- Be able to take on and beat other players
- Win a championship with my club team
- Join the growing number of current EFD players who have represented Western Australia in Paralympic and Special Olympics national games and the few who have played at international level
- Advance from Equal Footingball Division into other levels of the game
- Win the prestigious Disabilities in Football Award (David Cantoni Medal)
The levels on offer are currently in a review process:
Division Three: ages 9+ with emphasis on fun and learning for beginners and players improving skill, speed and agility.
Division Two: age 12+ with an emphasis on experienced players improving skill, game awareness and physical capability at their own pace
Division One: age 14+ for the most advanced players, especially those seeking to represent their state or country and progress into stronger levels of competition
- Players need to be able to move unassisted around a small pitch, with concession for walking aids.
- Insurance considerations may differ for injuries players have previously suffered.
