Launch of Power Footy schools football program into Sichuan Province
Country location: mainland China
Grantee: Port Adelaide Football Club
Port Adelaide Football Club (PAFC) will develop and execute an Australian Rules program under the banner of Power Footy in schools in Sichuan Province. This project will include the execution of the program in participating schools in curriculum and as an after school activity.
PAFC will also develop links with sports universities in Sichuan Province to facilitate Australian Rules football to become a part of the curriculum for physical education teachers. This would ensure that teachers capable of teaching Australian Rules football would graduate each year, and be accessible to participating schools.
PAFC staff and players (past or present) would travel to Sichuan on a regular basis, for stakeholder management, promotion and expansion.
