What is Fit4Football?


Fit4Football is a player welfare and prevention programme for our everyday athletes. It provides support mechanisms for enhancing player performance, injury prevention, welfare and wellbeing. The programme, which was developed by New Zealand Football in partnership with ACC SportSmart, is centred around the nine key principles:

  • Player profiling

  • Physical conditioning

  • Injuries, including concussion

  • Target populations

  • Skill and technique

  • Mental well-being and psychology

  • Athlete environment

  • Nutrition

  • Player wear and gear
