Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015 - Future Footy Legends

Melbourne, VIC:  Future Footy Legends has joined forces with the Captain Courageous Foundation and will donate 50 per cent of each sale made in March, aiming to raise $50,000 for bone marrow failure research.

Future Footy Legends is a new innovative online course that teaches kids the fundamentals of Australian football as well as fitness, nutrition, recovery and leadership.

"We believe Australian rules football has fallen behind when it comes to online education, and we aim to give kids the resources to learn the game from the comfort of their home."

" These types of platforms are used a lot in the United States but there is not much here," says Nick Blair - Future Footy Legends Co Founder

This will not only help players already participating in the sport, but also newcomers, girls and kids with multicultural backgrounds who want to learn more about the game to give them the confidence to participate.

Junior footballers only get two hours a week to go to training so there is barely time to work on individual skills. There are also many players who may feel intimidated about putting their hand up and asking for help at training.

By bringing the coaching online, kids can focus on the skills they want to improve by logging on to Future Footy Legends in their own time.

The program is also a fantastic platform for kids who have never participated in Australian rules football. Future Footy Legends will teach them all aspects of football to give them the confidence to join their local team.

The videos feature co founder Leigh Williams and ex AFL players. Williams was on Melbourne FC's list until a life threatening virus, and injuries cut his playing career at the top level short. He has since devoted his time to the coaching and development of young players at his local junior club.

"The announcement that 50% of  every sale in March will be going to Captain Courageous Foundation and such a great cause is extra exciting for us," Williams said.
