Walking football is an exciting new offering for Kissing Point FC. In line with our mission of ‘Positive football for everyone’, we are very pleased to provide this option for those wanting a gentler version of the game.
Long time Kisso player, referee and volunteer, Rhondda Shaw is our Walking Football Coordinator. Rhondda is pictured here with Paul Wade OAM, former Socceroos captain, and Walking Football Ambassador. Paul is featured in the one minute video below.
Walking Football is a non-contact, low-impact game, suitable for men and women of any age. Matches are played with modified formats (eg 6 v 6) on a small pitch, with a shortened game time. If you have a lot of football experience, or none at all, we encourage you to give Walking Football a go.
* Running is not allowed – one foot on the ground at all times
* The ball cannot be kicked above head height
* No heading of the ball
* No ‘referees’ as such and the competitive angle is kept to a minimum.
* The focus is on the social aspect of the game – we guarantee there will be either coffees or beers afterwards.
Walking Football sessions are on at 6:30pm every Friday at Auluba Oval, South Turramurra. They are $5 per session and participants are asked to complete a registration form so they are covered by Football Australia’s insurance.
Settle in at the clubhouse after you play, with a BBQ dinner and a drink or three from the licensed bar.
Join us! The more the merrier.
