As a sport, Football Federation Australia (FFA) values inclusion, fairness, excellence and fun. These values apply across all levels of the game – from junior clubs through to the elite levels of the sport.
FFA strongly supports the right of people with disabilities to participate in football as players, coaches, referees or administrators and we are committed to developing an environment where accessibility and diversity are valued and nurtured.
Our Member Federations are also committed to increasing football opportunities for people with disability and therefore increase participation of people with disability in football.
There are many opportunities along the Disability Football Participation Pathway below for you to be involved:
- Please refer to the FFA National Coaching Curriculum for a complete ‘Talented Football Pathway’ for both male and female participants: National Coaching Curriculum
- As part of the FFA ‘Talented Player Pathway’, the National Disability Team is the ‘Pararoos’, which competes to take part in the Paralympics and other various tournaments
