Walking Football in Casey
March 6, 2020
In partnership with Football Victoria and City of Casey, Casey Stadium hosted the first 8-week Walking Football program in the Casey area. Whilst the program is still in its’ infancy, it has been positive to see the interest in the area as we continue to look to grow the program.
Walking Football is a modified version of football (soccer) played on a smaller pitch, at a slower, walking pace and no contact. The game designed to allow people of all abilities, all genders and older ages to get active, play in a team and enjoy the beautiful game.
The program uses the indoor soccer courts at Casey Stadium where individuals are split into teams and play two 15 minutes halves with no goalkeepers. YMCA Casey provides a facilitator to ensure all players are following the walking rule and acts as the referee for the game.
The next program will start on Wednesday 11th March at 9:15AM. Come and join us for a kick. No experienced needed, just a pair of runners!
