FFA Coaching Curriculum


The FFA National Football Curriculum examines how Australians play football, exploring the philosophy behind how we should play and illustrating practical steps that bring the thinking to life in training and matches.


Having this football curriculum available for all coaches is a key part of the FFA's strategic plan to make football the biggest and most popular game in Australia.
