Launch of Power Footy schools football program into Sichuan Province

Sector: Sport

Country location: mainland China

Project description

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.
