Footy Cats

Footy Cats

Target groups: School-aged students, junior footballers, community groups 

 Focus areas: Football skills and club connection

The Footy Cats program encompasses a number of initiatives aimed at building a love for the game and connection to the Geelong Cats. Our visits to school clinics, junior clubs and AusKick Centres comes under the Footy Cats program, as well as annual events Community Camp and Country Day. The Geelong Cats work closely with AFL Barwon to organise these visits, which are always a highlight on the calendar. In 2021, the club has had to pivot to virtual visits, to enable some of these initiatives to still roll out in a COVID-safe manner, in line with AFL and government restrictions at the time. Although the visits have been different to what we are used to, the club and players have nevertheless endeavoured to make them meaningful and enjoyable for all involved.

The Footy Cats program is delivered in partnership with AFL Barwon
