The Arnett’s Program will be run in-house by EFC for children with special needs, such as Autism and developmental delays, and encourage participants to learn and practice football skills and play small-sided games against each other.
The program is aimed at children between 7-13 years old (approx.) and will commence soon after easter 2017, to run weekly for approximately 3 months. Detailed information on the program will be distributed via the EFC website and Facebook pages, as well as through local schools and organisations, in the near future.
Ultimately, all at EFC wish for all children to be involved in a sporting club regardless of their background, so as to give every child the opportunities that may taken for granted. The Arnett’s program also aims to encourage the families of the children to be a valued and appreciated member of the club, and for everyone to come together to enjoy the beautiful game.
A major part of the Arnett’s Program will be a lead-up match to an EFC NPL hame game (date TBC). On the day, participants of the program will play one or two small games either before or during half-time of the 1st Grade match, so as to feel the atmosphere of playing on the main ground with a full crowd. Furthermore EFC will donate a percentage of ticket sales, raffle and canteen funds from the day back into helping the Arnett’s program grow in 2018. We will also invite our Arnett’s program sponsors to be a guest of EFC as per the sponsorship allotments detailed in the sponsorship booklet.
The program and match day event will be promoted via the EFC website, Facebook and external public media such as NBN Television and The Newcastle Herald, guaranteeing excellent exposure for the program and it’s valued generous sponsors.
We invite you to be part of this special day as sponsors and share the joys of disadvantaged children being offered the ability to do what they love most. Please see the sponsorship booklet for various sponsorship options, or for more information about the Arnett’s Program please contact Mark Midson on 0413 085 318
