Canberra United Schools Program

The Canberra United Schools Program will be offered in five week blocks (1 – 5 & 6 – 10) to six different schools each term. One coach will deliver fun and engaging football/gross motor activities appropriate to your student’s skill/ability levels one day a week for a five week period. Schools can personalise their clinic to best suit their needs and timetable. This program will be offered on a first come first serve basis and unfortunately schools can only participate in the program once each calendar year.
