Football West launches Kick It. Football

Football West News

Football West is expanding its range of programs available for the WA football community with the launch of the Kick It. Football platform.

Kick It. Football is about attracting new and former players to the game and finding a format that matches their needs.

Whether it is after-school skills classes, five-a-side or walking football, there will be a program for everyone.


Football West CEO James Curtis said Kick It. Football was the perfect fit for the casual player.

“Football West is delighted to launch Kick It. Football and we are confident the wide variety of what it can offer will make it a huge success,” he said.

“We all love and value the traditional, club-based set-up and nothing can detract from that.

“However, there are many people in WA who, for whatever reason, cannot currently commit to that but who still want to play football. That is where Kick It. Football comes in, allowing them to play, and hopefully they will go on to join clubs.

“Kick It. Football is all about customising programs, so they take place when and where they are required.

“Examples are walking football, beach football, skills classes straight after school, five and seven-a-side … we know there is a hunger for all forms of the game.”

Kick It. Football will launch with two programs – Kick It. Skills, which is an after-schools skills program, and Kick It. Fives, an adaptable form of five-a-side.

Kick It. Football is ideal for:

  • People who are interested in taking up the game for the first time in a fun and social setting

  • Current players who want to stay active and keep their skills up in social formats and over the off-season

  • Groups of friends looking for a fun, cost-effective activity to do together on a weekly basis

  • Ex-players who are too busy for the ongoing commitment of training and playing traditional football formats

  • Children of all ages and abilities wanting to give the game a go and improve on their skills
