Health & Nutrition

Playing football is fun, healthy and keeps you fit. 

We also want you to be able to play football whilst protecting yourself from injuries.

Health is key to development and growth. FFA endorses FIFA's '11 for Health' programme that is designed to improve children’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviour towards diseases. 

'11 for Health' has eleven simple messages on prevention, all based on scientific facts and linked to a specific football action, are learned in group plays during eleven 90-minute sessions.

The first half is called ‘Play Football’ and instructs the specific football skill.

The second half is called ‘Play Fair’ and informs about the specific health issue and teaches children healthy behaviours to protect themselves.
