AllPlay Footy

AllPlay Footy is a joint initiative between the AFL and Monash University. It was established to support all children to play sport, including the one in six children who experience developmental challenges or disability. This content is part of our plan to achieve that goal.


AllPlay Footy is a joint initiative by Monash University and the AFL. AllPlay Footy was founded at Deakin University in 2015 and has been part of Monash Education since 2021. The AllPlay Footy content and resources presented here have been developed with people with lived experience of disability, consultants from National Sporting Organisations for People with Disability, psychologists and researchers, and are brought to you with funding from a Department of Social Services Information, Linkages and Capacity Building: Social and Community Participation Stream (2020-2024) grant.
