The WAFL Fathering Project RoundWednesday, August 24, 2016 - 3:02 PM

The West Australian Football League’s inaugural Fathering Project Round will be held this Saturday, August 27 with free family entry at all games when a Free Entry Flyer is presented.

The Round is being held in collaboration with the Fathering Project, which is a non-for-profit charity supporting fathers and father figures who want to make a real difference in, and have a positive impact on the lives of children.

The Fathering Project’s mission is to inspire and encourage fathers and father figures “to be the best dads they can be” by being pro-active in the lives of their children.

It does this primarily by helping dads to set up “Champion” Dads’ Groups in schools, supported by research into fathering and a website full of activities and tips.

The Fathering Project is actively seeking keen dads to form “Champion” Dads’ Groups and develop fathering activities in their local schools.

Activities planned at WAFL games for the Fathering Project Round include Little League with dads playing against the kids, dads and kids running races, kick to kick, goal kicking competitions and WAFL merchandise giveaways.

The Channel 7 broadcast game at East Fremantle Oval will also include food trucks, a bouncy castle, and a handball race with dads and kids.
